Apply Now For NASA ARISS Program – Proposal Deadline July 15, 2011

Apply Now to Host a Real Time Conversation With Crewmembers Onboard the International Space Station

NASA is now accepting proposals from U.S. schools, museums, science centers, and community youth organizations to host an Amateur Radio on the International Space Station, or ARISS, contact between Jan. 15 and July 15, 2012. Proposals are due July 15, 2011.

Using amateur radio, students can ask astronauts questions about life in space and other space-related topics. Students fully engage in the ARISS contact by helping set up an amateur radio ground station at the school and then using that station to talk directly with a crewmember on the International Space Station for approximately 10 minutes. The technology is easier to acquire than ever before. ARISS has a network of Mentors to help you obtain the technology required to host this once in a lifetime opportunity for your students.

Interested parties should contact Teaching From Space to obtain complete information including how the technology works, what is expected of the host organization, and the proposal/application form by sending an e-mail to JSC-TFS-ARISS@mail.nasa.gov or by calling 281-244-2320.
