Kenilworth pupils speak to astronaut

| December 14, 2018

Pupils at Kenilworth School in Warwickshire conversed with astronaut Serena Auñón-Chancellor aboard the ISS on Friday afternoon.

The amateur radio on the International Space Station contact was facilitated by the ARISS volunteers and streamed live via the internet.

Ten children asked around 20 probing questions, and we learned things like what the outside of the ISS smells like.

Amateurs around the country were listening in to transmissions direct from the spacecraft and many posted their experiences to social media, both during and immediately after the contact.
