UK ISS school contacts postponed

The planned contacts between astronaut Alexander Gerst KF5ONO on the ISS and pupils at Winter Gardens Primary School, Canvey Island, Essex and Pilton Bluecoat School, Barnstaple, Devon on Tuesday have been postponed

The SpaceX Falcon 9 carrying SpinSat and its amateur radio payload to the ISS had been due to take place early Saturday morning. Due to bad weather the launch was delayed until Sunday morning which has had a knock-on effect on the planned schools contacts.

A bit of bad luck for some UK schools scheduled to talk with the International Space Station.  Perhaps the contacts can be rescheduled for a later date.
