MAINE STUDENTS TALK WITH SPACE STATION CREW VIA PHONE

     Students and teachers from two schools in Maine will 
make a unique long-distance phone call Monday at noon EDT.

Students and teachers from Great Salt Bay School, 
Damariscotta, and Bristol Consolidated School, Pemaquid, 
will talk with the Expedition 9 crew of the International 
Space Station (ISS). The crew, U.S. astronaut Mike Fincke 
and cosmonaut Gennady Padalka, are serving six months on the 
ISS. The 20-minute downlink is part of Maine Space Day 
activities.

News media may attend the event at Great Salt Bay School, 
559 Main Street, Damariscotta. For accreditation and access, 
contact Sharon Eggleston at: 207/442-1498.

The Maine Space Grant Consortium is hosting the event. The 
Consortium consists of colleges, universities, research 
labs, state agencies, businesses and not-for-profit 
organizations. All of them help further NASA's exploration 
goals, while benefiting Maine in many different areas of 
science and technology.

NASA TV will carry the event live on AMC-9, transponder 9C, 
C-Band, located at 85 degrees west longitude. The frequency 
is 3880.0 MHz. Polarization is vertical, and audio is 
monaural at 6.80 MHz. The event is also available via
