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
