An International Space Station Expedition 15 ARISS school contact has been planned with students at Amagasaki Child Science Hall, Amagasaki, Hyogo, Japan on 28 Aug. The event is scheduled to begin at approximately 08:27 UTC.
The contact will be a direct between stations NA1SS and 8N3AMA. The contact should be audible in most of Japan. Interested parties are invited to listen in on the 145.80 MHz downlink. The participants are expected to conduct the conversation in English.
ARISS SCHOOL CONTACT are members of children who are very interested in science,environment and space. They all gathered for this plan held at Amagasaki Child Science Hall. Amagasaki, the town where this ARISS program would be held, had a great problem of environmental pollution because of the industrial growth. We studied about the environment thinking of the nature of our town Amagasaki as a theme. Now,children are working very hard on practicing English for their own question to the astronaut. They are looking forward to the contact with the space and wondering what kind of answer they would get.
Participants will ask as many of the following questions as time allows:
1. What is the most important when you use a robot arm?
2. Can you imagine it's raining when you see the earth cloud?
3. How many days do you stay in the Space station?
4. Is food floating in the stomach in the zerogravity?
5. Do astronauts have decayed teeth?
6. What is the attractive point of the space?
7. The garbage in the space is increasing. Can you decrease them?
8. Can you see a lunar eclipse or a solar eclipse in the space?
9. We see stars twinkling in the sky.How do they look in the space?
10. How do you deal with the left over food you have in the International Space station?
11. What is the most wonderful event these days?
12. Do you have any idea of how to stop or prevent the global warming from space station studies?
13. What kind of research do you have on the Space Station?
14. Have you ever seen meteorites in the space?
15. What would you do if a solar battery ran out?
16. What did you do first when you went to the outer space?
17. What would like to do first when you com back to the earth?
18. I hear forest fire occurs because of the global wavming. Do you often see forest fire on the earth from the International Space station?
19. How does the Ourora look from the space?
20. Do you think Ozone layer can be helped from international space station research?

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).
