ARISS Event -- Wednesday, Tulsa, OK



The next ARISS contact by Expedition 10 aboard the
International Space Station will be with students at Tulsa
Air and Space Museum, Tulsa, OK on Wednesday, 22 December.
The event is scheduled to begin at approximately 15:11
UTC.

This contact will be direct between stations NA1SS and
WA5LVT. It should be audible to anyone in the southwestern
United States area listening in on the 145.80 MHz
downlink. The participants will conduct the conversation
in English.

The Tulsa Air and Space Museum conducts aerospace classes
throughout the year, from STARBASE during the school year
to Aerospace Summer Camps during the summer vacation.

Please note, the amateur equipment on the ISS will be
turned off prior to the beginning of the contact. It will
be returned to service as quickly as possible.

Students will ask as many of the following questions as
time allows:

Do the G-forces from leaving the earth’s atmosphere cause
you to have little red spots on your face that we kids
call G-measles?

How much of the International Space Station is complete
and what is the expected life?

What does one day in the space station look like?

Is it hot or cold up there?

What do you think the benefits are of civilian space
travel?

Do you foresee civilians ever visiting the ISS?

Has any space junk or meteor pieces ever hit the space
station?

Are there shadows in space?

How is the physical training different at NASA than from
the military?

What would your advice be for an aspiring astronaut?

Can you see storms that happen on earth?

Do you have to use parachutes to slow down after going
through the earth’s atmosphere to land?

What is the physical impact of a zero gravity environment
on you over a long period of time and how do you deal with
this when you return to Earth?

What is the scariest or most dangerous thing that you do?

What happens to a human body if it were put into space as
a burial choice?

Is it worth all of the time, effort, etc. to become an
astronaut?

What is it like working with someone from another country
for a long time?

What kind of foods do you like to eat in space?

What do you do for exercise?

What has been the most interesting experiment you have
gotten to work on in the station?

Is it fun floating and how does it make your body feel?

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 crewmembers on ISS can
energize youngsters' interest in science, technology, and
learning. Further information on the ARISS programme is
available on the website http://www.rac.ca/ariss.
