            A satellite scheduled to be launched from Narrow Cape has arrived in Kodiak. Ball Aerospace and Technologies of Colorado reports the "STP Sat-2," built for the U.S. Air Force, arrived here recently.

            In a written announcement, Ball said the satellite is the first spacecraft for the U.S. Department of Defense "Standard Interface Vehicle Program." It is scheduled for launch aboard a Minotaur 4 rocket in the fall.

            The STP Sat-2 spacecraft provides a standard platform that can be sent into space using a variety of rockets.

            Ball Aerospace President and CEO David Taylor says the small satellite is robust, and provides a "flexible solution for a variety of customer mission needs," including missile warning, Earth-remote sensing, and situational awareness.

            Ball also said work was continuing on a second satellite that will host four Department of Defense experimental payloads. Where it will be launched from was not announced.

            Kodiak women had a chance this past weekend to learn outdoor skills from foraging for wild edibles to how to read a map. Workshops on outdoor skills were taught to more than 50 women by local outdoor specialists as part of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game's program titled "Becoming an Outdoors Woman."

            The program is intended to teach women who may not have had a chance to learn the skills when they were young,  so that they in turn, can then teach their children what many people see as essentials in Alaska. Take fishing, for one. Or how to preserve and cook fresh-caught meat and seafood for another.

Depending on what they signed up for women learned how to hunt, use a gun, fish with a rod and reel, or fly fish. Other offerings included how to shoot with a bow and arrow and how to safely operate a  4-wheeler. Survival in the wild and safety in bear country were among the Alaska oriented skills taught during the two-day event.
