I only just discovered an email in my spam folder from the principal 
investigator of the Roscosmos International Space Station 
"Shadow-beacon" Experiment indicating that the experiment series has 
concluded.  Valentin Strashinskiy has requested that experiment 
participants provide corrected names and addresses for certificates of 
participation from Roscosmos.  See the email below, and check your spam 
folder if you didn't receive the email.

Hopefully, we will see more such opportunities for amateur radio 
operators in the future.
