An International Space Station school contact has been planned with participants at Saku Children’s Science Dome for the Future, Saku City, Japan on 22 Oct. The event is scheduled to begin at approximately 09:52 UTC. It is recommended that you start listening approximately 10 minutes before this time.The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds. The contact will be direct between NA1SS and 8N0SDF. The contact should be audible over Japan and adjacent areas. Interested parties are invited to listen in on the 145.80 MHz downlink. The contact is expected to be conducted in English.





The Saku Children’s Science Dome for the Future is a science museum that was founded in 2001. It has a variety of exhibits on earth science, space, biotechnology, the environment and more. Some of the attractions that gain the attention of the children are a life-size model of a dinosaur, a 170 seat planetarium and a “mercury” display model presented by NASA. The center is located near the birth place of Mr. Kimiya Yui. Mr. Yui himself has visited the center several times. The name of the center has the word “children’s” in it, yet all ages can learn from the Saku Children’s Science Dome for the Future.

1.  I was very impressed with your HTV capture.  I want to be an astronaut 

    like you.  What made you the most nervous during the mission?

2.  Could you describe the view from the ISS?

3.  I heard you have sunrises every 90 minutes.  How do you keep your body on 

    a normal 24 hour cycle like we have here on earth?

4.  I heard that astronauts get taller in space.  Did you get taller?  Do you 

    actually feel taller?

5.  Which moved you more, the scenery of the ground on your first flight in a 

    jet, or the view of the earth on your first flight in space?  Could you 

    describe how you felt about each experience? 

6.  Do you feel a different type of tiredness from working in space verses 

    working on earth?

7.  I want to go into space in the future.  Were your trainings hard?  Do you 

    think that a time will come in the future when an ordinary girl like me 

    can easily go into space?  

8.  I was very impressed with your capture of the HTV.  Did any of your 

    experiences in your childhood help or contribute to the skills needed to 

    capture the HTV? 

9.  I am a swimmer, so I do strength training exercises in order to help swim 

    faster.  Which strength training exercise in the ISS is your favorite?

10.  If I went into space, I would be afraid of black holes. Does that ever 

     happen, that people are suddenly caught by one?
