ARISS SUISSE LAUSANE le jeudi 26 janvier 2017 à 11h06 UTC

ARISS contact planned for Swiss Space Center

An International Space Station radio contact has been planned for astronaut Thomas Pesquet KG5FYG/FX0ISS with Swiss Space Center – EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland.

The event is scheduled Thursday January 26, 2017 at approximately 11:06 UTC , which is 12:06 CEWT.

The telebridge contact will be operated by W6SRJ, located in California, USA.

The contact will be conducted in French.

School presentation

The Swiss Space Center works to facilitate access to the space sector for both research institutions and industrial partners, so that they can collaborate on the realization of international projects.  Based at EPFL, the Swiss Space Center also works to disseminate public awareness of space, to provide educational activities to school pupils and training to university students.

Participating Schools

Two schools have answered present to the offer of giving astronauts a ring onboard the International Space Station.

1. The Ecole primaire de Châteauneuf will participate with kids as young as 6, who are already very knowledgeable about space: they studied the Solar System and the Earth, various space missions and what role Europe and Switzerland have in them. They have been following Thomas Pesquet on social media since his training and they are ready to take over from him, as they already know what to put in the 1.5 kg suitcase that astronautes are allowed to bring onboard the ISS.

2. Middle school students from the Etablissement de Préverenges are also very well prepared: for these boys and girls gravity holds no secret anymore as they have studied the concept of forces, how to model, compute, and measure them; they have also learned about how astronauts eat on the ISS by conducting a workshop in the classroom.

Participants will ask as many of the following questions as time allows:

1 Léane: Quelle heure est-il en ce moment sur ISS?

2 Aasha: Fêteras-tu ton anniversaire autour de bougies, gâteau et de cadeaux?

3 Timea: Pouvez-vous s’il vous plait nous décrire ce que vous voyez hormis la Terre et le Soleil?

4 Valentina: Quelles sont les choses les plus drôles que vous faites en apesanteur?

5 Ilhan: Que faites-vous pendant votre temps libre?

6 Naya: Quel est la nourriture que tu n'aimes pas manger dans l'espace?

7 Elina: Quelles étaient tes matières préférées à l'école?

8 Ermin: Ta maman te manque?

9 Selma: As-tu observé les effets de la pollution sur notre planète?

10 Aya: Dans le Soyouz et ISS as-tu entendu des bruits qui font peur?

11 Dana: Quelle était votre motivation pour aller dans l’espace?

12 Lauryne: Entre combien de candidats avez vous été choisi et pourquoi?

13 Vincent: Pendant l’entraînement, quelle a été pour vous la chose la plus difficile a réaliser?

14 Pauline: Quelles sont les expériences scientifiques que vous faites?

15 Nathan: Qu’est-ce que cela vous procure d’être en apesanteur?

16 Robin: Votre sommeil est-il différent quand vous dormez dans l’ISS?

17 Alice: Qu’est-ce que vous faites si vous avez une urgence médicale?

18 Nathan: Y a-t-il des disputes entre les astronautes?

19 Noa: Qu’est-ce qu’il vous manque le plus de la vie normale?

20 Johan: Quelle est votre plus grande peur durant votre séjour dans l’espace?

ARISS is an international educational outreach program partnering the volunteer support and leadership from AMSAT and IARU societies around the world with the ISS space agencies partners: NASA, Russian Space Agency, ESA, CNES, JAXA, and CSA.

ARISS offers an opportunity for students to experience the excitement of Amateur Radio by talking directly with crewmembers on board the International Space Station. Teachers, parents and communities see, first hand, how Amateur Radio and crewmembers on ISS can energize youngsters' interest in science, technology, and learning.
