NA1SS (Col. Doug Wheelock) working K2BSA/4 on 31 July 2010 at 1824 UTC

Col. Doug Wheelock (NA1SS) speaks with Boy Scouts at the 2010 National Boy Scout Jamboree at Ft. A.P. Hill, VA. Col. Wheelock answered the following questions in this recording:

1. I am a Boy Scout, do you think our scouting programs could have a positive effect on space exploration? If so, how?
2. What sort of obstacles did you have to tackle to become an astronaut?
3. Are astronauts taught like Boy Scouts to improvise support devices or tools if equipment fails?
4. Looking back at Earth what strikes you the most about the view of planet Earth?
6. As you look back at Earth are you able to see the oil-spill in the Gulf of Mexico and if so what are your thoughts?
7. What do you notice about the effects of weightlessness on your body and do you expect a long-term effect?
8. What is your primary work assignment on the ISS?

When I record, I leave the squelch off, and when I edited the recording, I deleted most of the squelch noise to reduce the size of the recording, so the "squelch tail" separates transmissions by Col. Wheelock.
