ISS speak with School Pupils


Pupils from Sandringham School today spoke with the International Space Station and Astronaut Tim Peake via Ham Radio.


Sandringham School in St Albans has made history by making the first amateur radio call from the UK to a British astronaut on the space station.

The children contacted Major Tim Peake as he flew overhead on Friday morning.

Pupil Jessica, who has recently passed her radio exams, led the conversation.

It took a few minutes for the crackle and hiss to die down and allow the students to put some questions to the astronaut, before the ISS then went over the horizon and out of range. Jessica called it an “amazing experience” to be talking to someone 400km above them. Her head teacher, Alan Gray, said it had been an extraordinary opportunity for the school.

.Well done everyone! See the video link here courtesy of the BBC.
