ARISS

On 21 December 2000, astronaut William Shepherd turned from his usual activities aboard the newly occupied International Space Station (ISS). Floating over to a “ham” radio attached to a station bulkhead, he called the Burbank School in Burbank, Illinois and was soon talking with 14 enthusiastic students from grades 1–8. This month, amateur radio operators world-wide celebrate the tenth anniversary of this first school contact from ISS.
