It’s not everyday that you can discuss space flight with an astronaut living aboard the International Space Station ISS).  But, on Wednesday, a group of seven students from the Dorothy Grant Elementary School in Fontana, California did just that.  During the brief 10 minute pass of the ISS, the students asked various questions about life aboard an orbiting space station with German astronaut and geophysicist Alexander Geist.  The event was carried to every classroom in the school.  The event was organized by 4th grade teacher Beverly Matheson, who helped organize the school’s amateur radio club.  The club uses the call sign K6DGE and has 45 members, with 23 students holding amateur radio licenses.  Aloha, de Russ (KH6JRM).
