An ISS Crew Contact with the students at Hudson Memorial School will take place tomorrow (Friday). We built two complete space ground stations for the contact - a Primary and a Backup and we have been preparing and testing for about a year now.

We have been testing our equipment on-site at Hudson Memorial School all week. Our Primary and Backup stations are ready to go!



Both the primary and backup antenna towers have been installed and tested.



You can watch Live Video of our final preparations and our contact tomorrow via the following link -
