The next school contact by International Space Station (ISS) astronauts is
scheduled to take place Friday, December 5, 2003 at approximately 1450 UTC
with students at Dresden, Germany's Berufliches Schulzentrum Elektrotechnik.

The connection will be via amateur radio with the space station side of the
contact possibly audible to citizens of central Europe on the ISS downlink
frequency 145.80 MHz.

Questions students will ask of Commander Mike Foale include:

"What is the most interesting project aboard the ISS for you personally?"
"What was the most difficult challenge during your training to be an
"How do you solve the problem of waste disposal?"

ARISS is an international educational outreach program with US participation
from NASA, AMSAT (The Amateur Satellite Radio Corp.), and the American Radio
Relay League.  ARISS offers an opportunity for students to experience the
excitement of Amateur Radio by talking directly with crewmembers on-board
the International Space Station. Teachers, parents and communities
experience, first hand, how Amateur Radio and crew members on ISS can
energize youngsters interest in science, technology, and learning.

Further information on the ARISS programme is available at the website
