I hope that picture of you holding your antenna is just for looks, because you're holding it backwards.

The seven degree pass came in pretty good here in Raleigh, FM05.
Eventually I'll make a video of this reception.

These are the relevant questions:

6. Being at a military school right now, I'm very far from home; I
miss my parents

and my own bed. What are some things that you miss when you are away
from home, or

what do you wish would be put into the ISS to make you less home sick?

7. In the case of an emergency, how is the evacuation process executed?
* I think this one wasn't asked and the next one was asked instead

8. If an astronaut experiences an open flesh wound or medical
emergency in space,

then how are these injuries treated?

9. Since the Curiosity Rover has gone to Mars and the next step would
be to colonize

Mars, how do you think the travel through space would affect the astronauts both

physically and mentally?

10. Is it possible to create artificial gravity in space? If it can be
made, then why

isn't it used on the ISS?

11. Has NASA come up with any solution to the negative effects of long
term space

flight on astronauts.

12. Why did NASA transition from astronauts being former pilots to a much more

diverse community?

13. Are you able to see a difference in the color or in the currents
of the Pacific

Ocean due to the changes in water temperature caused by such things as El Nino?

14. What is the coolest thing you've ever seen up there?
* This question wasn't responded to
