The contact will be a telebridge between NA1SS and W6SRJ. The contact should be audible over the west coast of the U.S. Interested parties are invited to listen in on the 145.80 MHz downlink. The contact is expected to be conducted in French.

 

 

Description du Swiss Space Center 

Le Swiss Space Center oeuvre pour que les institutions de recherche et les entreprises puissent accéder au secteur spatial et collaborer entre elles sur des projets d'envergure internationale.

Raccordé à l'EPFL, le Swiss Space Center s'investit aussi dans la formation professionnelle, les activités éducatives avec les jeunes et l'appréciation de l'espace de la part du grand public. 

 

Ecoles participantes 

Deux écoles ont répondu présent à l'offre de passer un coup de fil à la Station Spatiale Internationale. 

1. L'Ecole primaire de Châteauneuf participera avec des enfants très jeunes et déjà très experts de l'espace: ils ont étudié le Système Solaire et la Terre ainsi que différentes missions spatiales et l'implication de la Suisse et l'Europe dans leur contexte. Ils suivent Thomas Pesquet sur les réseaux sociaux depuis son entraînement et sont prêts à prendre le relais de lui: ils savent déjà quoi mettre dans la valise d'un kilo et demi à laquelle les astronautes ont droit pour un séjour à bord de la Station. 


2. Les élèves de secondaire l'Etablissement de Préverenges sont aussi très bien préparés: pour ces garçons et filles la gravité ne fait plus peur car ils ont étudié les forces, comment les modéliser, mesurer et calculer. De plus les classes ont aussi conduit un atelier autour de l'alimentation des astronautes à bord de la Station.

 

 

Participants will ask as many of the following questions as time allows: 

 

1  Quelle heure est-il en ce moment sur ISS? 

2  Fêteras-tu ton anniversaire autour de bougies, gâteau et de cadeaux? 

3  Pouvez-vous s'il vous plait nous décrire ce que vous voyez hormis la Terre et le Soleil? 

4  Quelles sont les choses les plus drôles que vous faites en apesanteur? 

5  Que faites-vous pendant votre temps libre?  

6  Quel est la nourriture que tu n'aimes pas manger dans l'espace? 

7  Quelles étaient tes matières préférées à l'école? 

8  Ta maman te manque? 

9  As-tu observé les effets de la pollution sur notre planète? 

10  Dans le Soyouz et ISS as-tu entendu des bruits qui font peur? 

11  Quelle était votre motivation pour aller dans l'espace? 

12  Entre combien de candidats avez vous été choisi et pourquoi? 

13  Pendant l'entraînement, quelle a été pour vous la chose la plus difficile a réaliser? 

14  Quelles sont les expériences scientifiques que vous faites? 

15  Qu'est-ce que cela vous procure d'être en apesanteur? 

16  Votre sommeil est-il différent quand vous dormez dans l'ISS? 

17  Qu'est-ce que vous faites si vous avez une urgence médicale? 

18  Y a-t-il des disputes entre les astronautes? 

19  Qu'est-ce qu'il vous manque le plus de la vie normale? 

20  Quelle est votre plus grande peur durant votre séjour dans l'espace?

Description of the Swiss Space Center 

The Swiss Space Center works to facilitate access to the space sector for both research institutions and industrial partners, so that they can collaborate on the realization of international projects.  

Based at EPFL, the Swiss Space Center also works to disseminate public awareness of space, to provide educational activities to school pupils and training to university students. 

 

Participating Schools 

Two schools have answered present to the offer of giving astronauts a ring onboard the International Space Station.

 

1. The Ecole primaire de Châteauneuf will participate with kids as young as 6, who are already very knowledgeable about space: they studied the Solar System and the Earth, various space missions and what role Europe and Switzerland have in them. They have been following Thomas Pesquets on social media since his training and they are ready to take over from him, as they already know what to put in the 1.5 kg suitcase that astronautes are allowed to bring onboard the ISS. 

 

2. Middle school students from the Etablissement de Préverenges are also very well prepared: for these boys and girls 

gravity holds no secret anymore as they have studied the concept of forces, how to model, compute, and measure them; 

they have also learned about how astronauts eat on the ISS by conducting a workshop in the classroom.

 

1  What time is right now on the ISS? 

2  Will you celebrate your birthday with candles, cake and gifts? 

3  Could you please describe us what you can see apart the Earth and the Sun? 

4  What are the funniest things you can do without gravity? 

5  What do you do in your spare time? 

6  What is the type of food that you don't enjoy eating in space? 

7  What were your favorite school subjects? 

8  Do you miss your mum? 

9  Have you been able to observe the effects of pollution on our planet? 

10  Have you ever experienced frightening noises on both Soyuz and the ISS? 

11  What was your motivation to go to space? 

12  Among how many candidates were you chosen and why? 

13  During your training, what was the most difficult task to accomplish? 

14  What experiments are you conducting? 

15  What effects does weightlessness have on your body? 

16  Does sleeping feel different on the ISS? 

17  What do you do if there's a medical emergency onboard? 

18  Are there disputes among astronauts? 

19  What do you miss the most of life on Earth?  

20  What do you fear the most about your stay in space?

About ARISS: 

Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) is a cooperative venture of international amateur radio societies and the space agencies that support the International Space Station (ISS). In the United States, sponsors are the Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation (AMSAT), the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) and  National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).  The primary goal of ARISS is to promote exploration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) topics by organizing scheduled contacts via amateur radio between crew members aboard the ISS and students in classrooms or informal education venues.  With the help of experienced amateur radio volunteers, ISS crews speak directly with large audiences in a variety of public forums.  Before and during these radio contacts, students, teachers, parents, and communities learn about space, space technologies, and amateur radio.  For more information, see www.ariss.org, www.amsat.org, and www.arrl.org.

 

Thank you & 73,

David - AA4KN
