What is ASTRA? June 26, 2008Posted by gordonwatts in physics, politics.
Lately I’ve been getting science funding updates from an organization calling itself ASTRA (www.aboutastra.org and www.usinnovation.org). What do people know of this organization? Is it on the up-and-up? While the data on it seems focused at science, in the email all links are redirected through “http://x.jtrk12.net/” — which seems a bit suspicious – claims “this domain is used as part of a tracking mechanism in an e-mail marketing application”. Which means they are tracking to see if you clicked on their links in the email. Which makes me take a dim view. Anyone know?
