Look for these to come home with your child today, Friday, January 20, 2017.
Hello! PSA has had the good fortune to be selected for an ISS astronaut talk via ham radio on February 10, 2017 at 1:09 p.m. We are one of eight schools in the country to be given this honor. The International Space Station will pass over the school at 1:09 p.m., and the entire school (students and faculty) will assemble in the gym at a designated time after lunch. The astronaut talk will last for 9 minutes. Astronauts will answer student-generated questions for the 9 minute window of open communications via ham radio. Students whose questions are selected will be able to talk via ham radio and ask their question directly to the astronauts. They do not need to be licensed to ask the question because there will be a ham radio control operator on-site who is licensed for this kind of communication.
I am in need of well-thought out questions by the students! Students may ask multiple questions as well. About 15 questions will be selected for the astronaut talk.
