ARISS Contact with Cherry Creek School District 10/30/2011

Students in the gifted and talented program, “Inside Out” from Cherry Creek School District in Centennial, Colorado participated in an Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) contact on Thursday, October 27 via telebridge station IK1SLD in Italy. On-orbit Astronaut Mike Fossum, KF5AQG fielded eleven questions in detail before losing the radio connection. The contact was integrated into the science curriculum covering topics such as radio propagation and space. A story about the school contact has been posted to NASA’s Web site:
