    The journey to space was real as St Peter-In-Thanet CE Primary School connected with a LIVE uplink to astronaut Jasmin Moghbeli aboard the International Space Station (NA1SS) using Ham Radio. I sat down with Matt M0MLK and daughter Isabella to discuss how the contact went, questions asked and advice on how other schools can get involved.

    This is the coolest thing I have ever seen. God Bless all the people that work in the background to make this happen. These children will remember this for their entire lives!

    absolutely superb. What a great production and lovely interaction with a busy astronaut. Very glad they find time to inspire and teach through the hobby of amateur radio.:)

    The problem is, that these informations are in a BBC and a QRZ bubble. Many people who could be intrested in that too, will not recognize this action. The closed HAM-Radio world got difficulties with that.
