An Expedition 19 ARISS school contact has been planned with participants at Besyo Elementary School, Saitama Saitama, Sitama, Japan on 11 May. The event is scheduled to begin at approximately 1101 UTC.

The contact will be a direct between NA1SS and 8J1KW. The contact should be audible over Japan. Interested parties are invited to listen in on the 145.80 MHz downlink.  The participants are expected to conduct the conversation in Japanese.

The Besyo elementary school separates from the Miyahara elementary school (ARISS school contact was success at 2 April 2009) in 1974, and comes the 34th anniversary after founding a school. Koichi Wakata studied from 5th and 6th grade. Also he graduated this school.

Participants will ask as many of the following (translated) questions as time allows:
1. (Do you (Wakata) catch a cold? In space, is it cold?)
2. (What is most happiest in the International Space Station?)
3. (What do you see the star seen from space?)
4. (What color is space?)
5. (School song of the Besyo has the phrase that is 'Let's advance holding both stars of the future'.  Do you (Wakata) find your future star?)
6. (We have many smell in the earth. Is there variously smell in the space? What smell is there?)
7. (What dream do you have at sleep in space?)
8. (Where does N pole of the compass point in space?)
9. (What difference do you see the earth when for the first time and going to space this time?)
10. (We heard that the bone weakened when was in space. Please teach what you do something because it is not.)
11. (What is changing the body felt most first because it goes to space?)
12. (How do you process the garbage in the International Space Station?)

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.ariss.org/ (graciously hosted by the Radio Amateurs of Canada).

Thank you & 73,
