The Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) is to encapsulate its accomplishments over two decades by transmitting a set of 12 SSTV images from space. ISS Ham Radio Program Manager Frank Bauer KA3HDO has announced the initiative that is expected around the weekend of July 15, depending on the availability of the International Space Station. The SSTV images will depict the first ARISS meeting in November 1996, the joint operations on the MIR space station, and the extraordinary developments that have occurred in the past 20 years.

ARISS can be proud that it has touched the lives of many and inspired and educated countless students to pursue science, technology, engineering and math careers. It has had over 1,000 school contacts. More details on the SSTV image event will be known from ARISS in coming weeks as it develops.
