LIVE Astronaut Interview via IRLP

Johnson Space Center, Houston, TX., July 3, 2003-- The Internet Radio 
Linking Project will be used to support a live interview between Astronaut 
Barbara Morgan and campers from the Charles River Creative Arts Program 
(CRCAP). Barbara, who will be operating from the Johnson Space Center ARC 
(W5RRR) will spend 30 minutes answering questions from the childern who 
will be using the Amateur Radio facilities of the Massachusetts Emergency 
Management Agency (MEMA) begining at 1645 UTC. The event is organized 
between the JSC Distant Learning Outreach Program and the Christa McAuliffe 
Challenger Learning Center, Framingham State College, Framingham, MA.
Amateurs who might want to listen in on the event can do so by connecting 
to the "Lone Star" Reflector, ID # 9450, Channel # 5.
For those who have little or no experience with the IRLP the Operating 
Guidelines are possted at http://www.irlp.net. On the sidebar of this home 
page, select "Node Info". This will give you a listing of the node 
locations and frequencies. Find the node that is located nearest to you and 
monitor its posted frequency. Depending on how the Node is configured you 
might have to get in touch with the nodes owner or sponsor. That 
information is avalible by selecting or "clicking-on" the Node number.
This event represents the third test of the IRLP in support of the JSC 
Distant Learning Program. Thus far it has proved to be an effective means 
of distributing interviews between NASA Professionals and children across 
North America.
We hope that you can join us at 1645 UTC July 3 on IRLP "Lone Star" 
Reflector # 9455.
