7. If Brazil can send a 100% Brazilian satellite to space, what kind to satellite would we choose to have?
8. Are you going to talk to your kids from space too?
9. What is in your opinion the best part of this mission?
10. Qual o treinamento que vocês fazem para se acostumarem a ficar presos em um lugar bem pequeno pôr vários dias?

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 program is available on the website http://www.rac.ca/ariss <http://www.rac.ca/ariss>  (graciously hosted by the Radio Amateurs of Canada).
