These opportunities are enabled by the ARISS (Amateur Radio on the International Space Station) program and involve the use of amateur radio stations that are established in schools and which link directly to the ISS as it passes overhead, at a speed of 17,500 miles per hour. Each contact lasts approximately ten minutes
