  Description     : C implementation of The SPICE Toolkit

SPICE (Spacecraft Planet Instrument C-matrix Events) is a NASA ancillary 
information system used to compute geometric and event information in analyzing 
and planning science observations obtained from spacecraft. It is also used in 
planning missions and conducting numerous engineering functions needed to carry 
out those missions.

SPICE has become the de facto standard for handling much of the so-called 
observation geometry information on NASA's planetary missions, and it is now 
widely used in support of science data analysis on planetary missions of other 
space agencies as well. Some SPICE capabilities are used on a variety of 
astrophysics and solar physics missions, such as JAXA's Hayabusa project, ESA's 
Rosetta or NASA's Steins.

I would like this package to be maintained either by the Debian Astro team or, 
if it were outside its scope, the Debian Science team.
