School Information:

Kugluktuk is situated at the confluence of the Coppermine River and the Coronation Gulf. The hamlet has a population of approximately 1600 people; JHI KHS serve over 400 fabulous students from K to 12. ‘Kugluk’ is the Innunaqtun word for 'fast moving water’, ‘tuk’ means 'place of’. The Copper Inuit have survived & thrived in this area for generations. We are located at latitude 67º 50’ N and longitude 115º 06’ W.

We are a fascinating people who live in a dynamic environment characterized by extreme variations!

Participants will ask as many of the following questions as time allows:

1. How much longer will the space station be in operation?
2. The next space station is planned for a moon orbit, why a moon orbit?
3. What is the longest we can stay in space given the present technology on the ISS?
4. Are there any plans to build gravity modules for the space station and will this allow us to stay longer in space?
5. What is the greatest challenge facing you on space station?
6. What is the most important qualification or attribute one can have to seek out a career involving work in space?
7. What long term impacts occur to those who stay in space for long periods, if any?
8. What is daily life like on space station - do you follow a schedule?
9. Did you change your diet in preparation for space life or can you eat most of the same foods?
10. What are the impacts of zero gravity on overall digestive function?
11. Besides humans, what other life forms do you have on board?
12. How long can the space station last in orbit without any rocket boost to maintain its orbit?
13. Do you ever fly over the Artic and what does that look like from up there?
14. Does space look different from where you are?

ARISS is an international educational outreach program partnering the volunteer support and leadership from AMSAT and IARU societies around the world with the ISS space agencies partners: NASA, Russian Space Agency, ESA, JAXA, and CSA.

ARISS offers an opportunity for students to experience the excitement of Amateur Radio by talking directly with crewmembers on board the International Space Station. Teachers, parents and communities see, first hand, how Amateur Radio and crewmembers on ISS can energize youngsters' interest in science, technology, and learning.

 You think there's nothing on TV? Think again! Tune into NASA Television as well as the NASA website for the latest episode of "hams in space." Astronauts Mark Vande Hei KG5GNP and Joe Acaba KE5DAR are going outside the International Space Station along with their expedition commander Randy Bresnik on the 5th, 10th and 18th of October. This is strictly a business trip for the three American astronauts of Expedition 53: they have important station maintenance to do. Check the NASA website for local times in your part of the world.

While Joe and Randy are veterans of a few spacewalks, this will be the first for Mark, the flight engineer. Joe will join his two crew colleagues on the third and final spacewalk on the 18th.

Best of all, there'll be no commercial interruptions.
