ARISS is an international educational outreach program partnering the
participating space agencies, NASA, Russian Space Agency, ESA, CNES,
JAXA, and CSA, with the AMSAT and IARU organizations from participating
countries. 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 see, 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 (graciously hosted by the Radio Amateurs of
Canada). Information about the next scheduled ARISS contact can be
