An International Space Station Expedition 17 ARISS school contact was
held with participants at the National Air and Space Museum (NASM), 
Washington, DC, USA on 03 May. 

NN1SS in Maryland performed earth station duties and provided the
telebridge between NA1SS and the National Air and Space Museum. The
contact was audible over most of the Eastern USA on the 145.80 MHz 
downlink.

This ARISS contact is part of the space day events celebrating NASA's 
50th anniversary.  This event is made possible by the generous support 
of Lockheed Martin.

The ARISS/AMSAT exhibit wass in the new "America by Air" gallery, 
Gallery 102 on the first floor, just past the Museum Store before 
you reach the Flight Simulators.  The display featured ARISS and 
AMSAT hardware. Mr. Kemp and students from his Systems Engineering 
Class at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology 
explained their progress on their Cubesat project.
