Organisers from ARISS in Australia have advised that an application for a contact session between students from Monaro High School and an astronaut on the International Space Station has been approved. Whilst the specific date is yet to be confirmed, the contact will be made on an evening between the 17th and 23rd of May, 2021.
Early planning by Monaro High School and the Snowy Mountains Amateur Radio Club is well underway and there is already very keen interest and excitement for this first-time event for the students and the area. We intend to stream this event live on Facebook on the night so please check back here for up-to-date details and date confirmation.
