ARISS Event - James Bay Elementary on Wednesday



The ARISS team is pleased to announce that the next contact by 
International Space Station (ISS) astronauts is scheduled 
to take place next Wednesday, February 4, 2004 at approximately 
1755 UTC with students at James Bay Elementary School in 
Houston, Texas.

The connection will be via amateur radio with the space 
station side of the contact possibly audible to listeners 
in the South West United States and portions of Mexico 
on the ISS downlink frequency 145.80 MHz.  The Space Station 
will be using the call NA1SS to contact station W5RRR.

Some of the student questions are:

"Does evaporation occur at the same rate in space as on earth and 
does water dry quickly on your clothes?"

"Is it hard to fall asleep on the ISS and can you describe your first 
night sleeping there?"


The James F. Bay Elementary School is dedicated to providing 
excellent education and ensuring all students attain their maximum 
potential.  The school excels in mathematics and technology through its 
action Student Council, Bay Eagle Choir, Art Club, Tech Kids Club, 
Challenge Classes, and the Texas State Champion Bay Eagle Robotics 
Team!  


Further information about the contact as well as the complete list 
of questions will be provided as they become available.


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
