ARISS Event - Liceo Scientifico G.Galilei, Civitavecchia,Roma, and ITI-LST Mottura Caltanisetta, Italy,Wednesday (Oct 31) 07:33 UTC

An STS-120 ARISS school contact has been planned with participants at Liceo Scientifico G.Galilei, Civitavecchia, Roma, Italy and ITI-LST Mottura Caltanisetta, Italy on 31 Oct. The event is scheduled to begin at approximately 07:33 UTC.

The contact will be a direct between station IZØJPA (Nespoli) and ground stations IZØLSG and IT9YBA. The contact should be audible in most of Europe. Interested parties are invited to listen in on the 145.80 MHz downlink. The participants are expected to conduct the conversation in Italian. Live audio from this contact can be heard on the EchoLink AMSAT (101 377) and JK1ZRW (277 208) Conference Rooms, and on the IRLP Discovery Reflector 9010.  For further information, please check the calendar of events on www.amsat.org.

Galileo Galilei is a high school with a scientific focus in Civitavecchia. There are 650 students aged between 14 and 19 attending our school. The main subjects are math, physics, natural sciences, Italian, English, history and philosophy. Our school is situated in Civitavecchia near Rome. It is famous for its most important harbour in Italy. Marconi conducted experiments on microwaves, RADAR, radio mobile telephone and the use of the moon as a natural satellite. He sent waves to the moon and received their reflections.

ITI - LST Mottura is the oldest mining school in Italy, founded in 1862. It offers three different specialized courses which are the scientific and technological orientation, electrical engineering and automation and the geo-environmental course. Among its extra activities there are the following courses: sound technology, aeronautic technology and virtual aviation, radio-astronomy, astrophysics and astronomy. There is a "Science Festival" every year. The school has a telescope and a radio telescope on the school roof. The number of students enrolled is 998.

Participants will ask as many of the following questions as time allows: 
1. Qual è il contributo che lei, come rappresentante dell'Italia, apporta alla missione? 
2. Quanto tempo occorrerà per il completamento della stazione spaziale? 
3. Quali saranno i vantaggi che porterà l'aggiunta del Nodo 2 sulla ISS? 
4. Quali difficoltà  incontrate tornando a terra dopo una lunga permanenza nello spazio? 
5. Che genere di strumenti usate per l'assemblaggio della ISS? 
6. Quanto tempo dura  l'addestramento di un astronauta prima di una missione spaziale? 
7. Quale è l'utilità futura e i vantaggi pratici sulla terra degli esperimenti svolti nello spazio? 
8. Quali tipi di esperimenti scientifici si eseguono attualmente sulla stazione spaziale? 
9. Cosa fanno gli astronauti durante una missione? 
10. Quanto tempo trascorrerete fuori dalla staziona spaziale per il montaggio del Nodo 2? 
11. Come passano il tempo libero gli astronauti? 
12. Qual è  la maggiore difficoltà del vostro lavoro? 
13. Quanto rimarrà in orbita la stazione spaziale? 
14. Esistono rischi di contrarre malattie nello spazio? 
15. Che tipo di energia usa la stazione? 
16. Quanto è alto il rischio di impattare contro un detrito spaziale? 
17. Si riesce a dormire nonostante la mancanza di gravità non vi faccia 'gustare' un soffice letto? 
18. Come avete simulato sulla terra le condizioni nello spazio per l'assemblaggio del Nodo 2? 
19. Come vengono smaltiti i rifiuti sulla ISS? 
20. Qual è il  contributo dell'Italia nella progettazione e nella realizzazione della Stazione Spaziale Internazionale?

Next planned event(s): 

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  (graciously hosted by the Radio Amateurs of Canada). 

Thank you & 73,
