4.  Cambridge students to contact ISS astronaut

Cambridge Today interviews Scott Mitchell VA3GGT about the planned amateur radio contact
between students and astronaut Kjell Lindgren KO5MOS on the International Space Station
Flying about 28,000 kilometres an hour, astronauts from the ISS will hop on a radio and buzz a
Cambridge library to talk with children from the city on August 18.
“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, not only for us but the children who get to ask questions,”
said Scott Mitchell, club trainer and past president at the Cambridge Amateur Radio Club (CARC).
The CARC will be using a normal amateur radio to call Dr. Kjell N. Lindgren from the ISS and a
lucky few will get the chance to ask him questions.
