iSPACE and WCARA make ISS Contact.

Posted by: | Posted on: October 14, 2016

On Saturday October 8th iSPACE students in Cincinnati were able to talk to astronaut Kate Rubins (KG5FYJ) aboard the International Space Station with the help of our club and the VOA Museum.  The contact only lasted 10 minutes but I’m sure everyone will remember this exciting QSO for a very long time.
