SILVER SPRING STUDENTS WILL TALK TO OUTER SPACE TODAY
Beam us up! Students at Forest Knolls Elementary School in Silver Spring will make direct contact with the International Space Station around 14:38 UTC today (which would be 2:38 PM EST or 3:38 PM EDT? - I honestly don't know for sure). Check that time first, and then you can listen in to the broadcast on ham radio at 145.80 MHz.
Forest Knolls has its own amateur radio station, which also hosts an afterschool ham radio club with 15 student members. This broadcast will be to the Final Frontier, however.
Students will ask astronauts as many as 25 questions, if time allows.
