An International Space Station ARISS school contact has been planned with students at Puskás Tivadar Távközlési Technikum, Budapest, Hungary on 12 April. The event is scheduled to begin at approximately 23:15 UTC.
The contact will be a direct between stations HA5SIK and HA5KHC. The contact should be audible in most of Europe. Interested parties are invited to listen in on the 145.80 MHz downlink. The participants are expected to conduct the conversation in Hungarian.
Students will ask the following questions:
1. How do you feel yourself in the weightlessness?
2. How does the Hungarian PILLE work?
3. How does it feel when you look at the Earth from the space station? Does it really look like in the pictures?
4. What kind of experiments have you done on the space station?
5. Are you satisfied with the operating system of the computer on the space station?
6. What book and which personality had big influence on you during your professional career?
Please note, the amateur equipment on the ISS is not functioning in the automatic modes properly and may be silent more than usual. Information about the next scheduled ARISS contact can be found at http://www.rac.ca/ariss/upcoming.htm#NextContact .

ARISS is an international educational outreach program partnering the participating space agencies, NASA, Russian Space Agency, ESA, CNES, JAXA, and CSA, with the AMSAT and IARU organizations from participating countries.
ARISS offers an opportunity for students to experience the excitement of Amateur Radio by talking directly with crewmembers on-board the International Space Station. Teachers, parents and communities see, first hand, how Amateur Radio and crewmembers on ISS can energize youngsters' interest in science, technology, and learning. Further information on the ARISS program is available on the website http://www.rac.ca/ariss (graciously hosted by the Radio Amateurs of Canada).
