YOTA UK 2017

Planned ISS contact from the Youth Camp

By | YOTA UK 2017 | No Comments

What question would you ask an astronaut?

YOTA teams across the world have been invited to submit questions for the planned contact with the International Space Station during YOTA 2017.

Linking with the theme of the amateur radio event, questions should focus on communications – which can include amateur radio, cell phones, data links, satellites, etc. YOTA team members have been asked to try and think of questions no-one else has asked before!

We won’t know when the ISS contact will take place until one week before the event, but the plan is to have it streamed live over the internet so people everywhere will be able to watch the build up and the QSO.
