Selected DFW-area students will talk live to the International Space Station at the Frontiers of Flight Museum on Aug. 5.
For the third time in as many years, the Frontiers of Flight Museum has the honor of being selected for a LIVE amateur radio contact with the International Space Station (ISS) to allow students in the local area a rare opportunity to ask questions to an astronaut in orbit aboard the ISS. This contact will take place on Saturday, August 5, at the Museum, during the middle of the day at a specific time to be announced soon.
We invite students from ages 6 to 18 in the Dallas-Fort Worth area to submit their questions to be considered for this exciting educational opportunity! To submit your question, click here: http://www.flightmuseum.com/iss-talk-live/. The deadline for submitting proposed questions is Saturday, July 22, which is also Moon Day at the Museum. For info visit: http://www.flightmuseum.com/moon-day/. Students may also submit their questions in person at the Museum’s Membership Table during Moon Day.
Students whose questions are selected (and their families) will be invited to the Museum on Saturday, August 5, 2017, to participate in this direct contact with an astronaut in orbit. This opportunity is made possible with the cooperation of NASA and the Amateur Radio Satellite Corporation. The event will be held in the Museum’s Hamilton Family Auditorium (on the mezzanine level) to allow the families and other Museum visitors to join in the experience.
