ARISS Event Notice -- Sapporo, Japan, Monday at 14:26 UTC

The next International Space Station's Expedition 11 ARISS 
school contact will be with students at the Sapporo Junior 
Amateur Radio Club, Sapporo, Japan on Monday, 22 August 
 2005. The event is scheduled to begin at approximately 
14:26 UTC.

This contact will be direct between stations NA1SS and 
8J8X, so it should be audible to anyone in Japan and 
nearby parts of Asia and the Pacific listening in on the 
145.80 MHz downlink. The participants are expected to 
conduct the conversation in English.

School officials tell us "The Sapporo Junior Amateur Radio 
Club was built for the young ham. We do some electronic 
experiments and are active on the amateur radio bands 
after the school and especially on holidays. Our purpose 
is to arouse young people interest in electronics through 
using amateur radio."

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

  1. What kind of trouble bothered you most in space?
  2. Are there any difference in your voice in space?
  3. Can you see the lights of Sapporo now?
  4. How do you get in touch with your family?
  5. What is it like to live in no gravity?
  6. What is the reason you decided to be an astronaut?
  7. What do you think when you’re looking at the earth?
  8. What work do you do on the ISS?
  9. What is the meaning of space for you?
10. What time do you get up and go to bed?
11. What kind of new space food would you like to eat?
12. What is your fun on the ISS?
13. Are there any difference in your blood pressure in 
14. How big do you see the moon?
15. Have you ever brought any animals into space?
16. Is it comfortable to live on the ISS?
17. How did you feel when you were going into space for 
the first time?
18. What is your favorite space food?
19. What was it like being on board the Soyuz?

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.

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 found at
