The South Australian Air League talks to the International Space Station

This Friday at 7:00 pm the kids of the SA branch of the Australian Air League will be talking with ISS astronaut Koichi Wakata on the ISS itself. The relay will be set up in the South Australian Aviation Museum, the signal will go from there to Brisbane, then from Brisbane to Hawaii, then to the ISS (and back again).

The ISS link was set up as part of the 80th anniversary celebrations of the founding of the Air League.

The folks at the Air League, and the kids of the Air League have worked very hard for this, and it will be a fantastic reward for them when the ISS passes over and the kids get to ask questions of Koichi. Sadly, the ISS will not be visible from Australia at this time, but this Friday you can still look up and be astonished that there are people in outer space taking to kids in Australia.
