Re: ISS Sweden School Comtact Video




Hi Michael

If you are after something online, there is quite a lot of coverage  
of the Neston UK contact of 2003 at http://www.g6lvb.com/Neston/ 
index.htm
We were very greatful for those clips in preparing our recent contact  
(Teven-Tintenbar Primary School, Aug 06). We are equivalent to
elementary school.

We have a DVD of our own contact including preparation, kids  
interviews and other action on the night which I can mail you if that  
helps.

We found that the enthusiasm and excitement took a long time to  
build. People 'understood' but didn't really understand. The excitement
didn't appear until well into the process, at least 9 months after  
application to ARISS. On the basis of my limited experience of only  
running
one of these, I'd suggest get permission, make the application, get  
in the ARISS queue and get excited later.

If you want nail-biting drama, do it as direct contact, with 400  
people present, with a low power backup transmitter in use on the  
ISS, on a
low elevation pass, the week after another contact has failed for  
unexplained reasons.

Don't hesitate to do it - all well worth it,
