Re: SAREX Digest, Vol 3, Issue 28



A simulated contact is a training session. Crew members speak to students using ARISS hardware in a mockup of the ISS at a training facility on the ground. This activity is one of dozens they simulate as part of their training program before the crew members actually fly on a mission.
