If you would like to talk with an astronaut on the ISS, research one of the topics below and submit a report (250 words), a poster, a video presentation, or any kind of presentation that includes a question you would like to ask.  Your question should be about what you have learned as you’ve researched the topic.  Choose from one of the following topics.   Projects will be chosen according to a rubric as shown below.

1. Project Diana: The First Earth- Moon- Earth Transmission

2. How Radio Works

6. The use of Radio in Space Exploration

7. Amateur Radio

8. Radio on the ISS

9. NASA’s Deep Space Radio Communications

10. Weather and Radar

More than one students may choose the same topic.  If there are more than 20 submissions we will choose the project that answers these questions best:

On a scale of 1-5 with 1 being the highest, does the question

ISEC will help you with your research. We will guide your research through email, zoom or you can come to ISEC at 2300 Marconi Rd. in Wall Twp. on Wednesday, Saturday or Sunday between 1-5pm. You can learn to use the TLM18 Space Sentry Radio Antenna, a 60 ft. Satellite Dish to look at Pulsars, The Sun, The Milky Way, Weather Satellite Images and even other Galaxies! You’ll learn about HAM Radio and use it to bounce signals off the moon and even hear your own voice travel 500,000 miles to the moon and back!

If you want to do the research on your own or with a group of students, thats fine! You don’t have to visit ISEC if you do not have time. We will help you through email, zoom or in person. Your research can begin now or it can be done over the summer. The research project is due on January 10, 2022.

Students whose research projects are chosen will speak to the astronauts on the International Space Station on a date between January and June 2022 chosen by NASA and ARISS. NASA and ARISS will tell us the exact date within an 8 week window. Once we have the date we will invite the students who will speak with the astronauts to come to ISEC to make contact. Teachers and parents are invited to attend but are not obligated. We will also invite the community in schools, or elsewhere to attend the event through Zoom to be part of the event.
