An Expedition 19 ARISS school contact has been planned with participants at Miyahara Junior High School, Saitama, Japan on 26 May. The event is scheduled to begin at approximately 1112 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 Miyahara junior high school was established at 1947. The number of whole school students is 1014 people. Koichi Wakata learned and graduated this school.

Participants will ask as many of the following (translated) questions as time allows:
1. (In space, there are neither air nor gravity, and the living space is different from the earth. What is the most surprised phenomenon?)
2. (What feeling is no sense of the top and bottom though thought that an upper and lower sense disappears because there is no gravity in space?)
3. (We heard when we watered it in space, water was hardening after it had scattered momentarily as ice. How does the organism become it if the organism (small animals) was thrown out in space?)
4. (Light extends from zonal to widening toward the end and advances in the space when light is applied to the dark in the earth. How do you see the stripe of light in space?)
5. (The stereoscopic effect disappears so that quantities of light may decrease, and when the night comes in the earth, only light in the window floats on the plane and the building is gotten. How do you see it when you see the planet in space? Is there a stereoscopic effect?)
6. (It comes to have a narrow view of things because of a decrease in quantities of light and the sphere of endeavor is decreased in the earth as the night comes in daytime. How has view changed on the earth in space that is the dark of darkness?)
7. (I think that it goes straight, and the refractive index is different from the ground of light because in space, there is no air. What outlook on the distance on the earth and difference do you cause? Moreover, what influence does the change in this outlook on the distance give work?)
8. (It was studied that the living thing evolved according to the environment. If the person came to be going to live in space in the near future, do you think that which part causes the adaptive variance to space easily most in person's sensory organ?)
9. (I think that Wakata has done an extraordinary effort to become an astronaut. Is space beautiful when you are going to space? Please teach the charm point of it.)

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,
