GES COMMUNICATES WITH SPACE STATION

Greenville Elementary School students contacted astronauts on the International Space Station via ham radio Friday and the conversation was streamed live on the Internet.  The honor was the result of a 3-year familiarization with amateur ham radio guided by GES instructors and the OKAW Valley Amateur Radio Club. Over the three years, 37 students in grades three through eight have been licensed as ham radio operators. The students spoke with Astronaut Paolo Nespoli who flew a mission on the space shuttle in 2007 and has been on a long-duration mission aboard the International Space Station since December 2010. Sixteen of the 37 licensed students were chosen at random to ask questions of Nespoli. Questions ranged from “What do the planets look like from space?” to “How often do you have to wash your clothes?”  Nespoli stayed connected long enough to answer each student’s question and called each by name and radio call letters. A video of the conversation may be found by searching for GES-ISS on YouTube.
