Author : Robert Broomhead - VK3KRB

Students from Melbourne's Anderson Creek Primary School will be speaking with a crew member on the International Space Station next month during a 10 minute window as the ISS circles the Earth at 27,000 kph. Whilst the exact date and crew member speaking with students are both to be confirmed, it's hoped the event will take place during the week starting Nov.10, 2008 and that the students speaking with Station commander Mike Fincke. Mike took a very active interest in school contacts when he last flew on the ISS back in 2004.

The contact will be made using an ARISS telebridge with the uplink provided by a base station from ARISS's worldwide network of nine telebridge bases.

Further updates will be posted on the WIA website as details for the event are confirmed.
