Wonder if others are having this problem. for the past weeks, all these email announcements are delivered to me late. I get them the day after the contacts actually happen. That makes it tough to tune in. Tom W5KUB

An International Space Station school contact has been planned with participants at Scuola primaria De Gasperi, Noicattaro, Bari, Italy on 12 Dec. The event is scheduled to begin at approximately 09:19 UTC.

Our school is a public primary school named after Alcide De Gasperi. It is attended by about 700 pupils, aged between 6 and 11 years. In addition to the compulsory activities, our school gives the opportunity to attend optional activities in the afternoon; these concern English language, music, sports, theatre, science, ecology, and other artistic and research activities. De Gasperi school looks forward to the contact with the ISS on occasion of the celebrations of the centenarian of the prize Nobel to Guglielmo Marconi. The contact site is located at “Cittadella Mediterranea della Scienza“ of Bari, promoted by University of Bari. The “Cittadella Mediterranea della Scienza” is a permanent structure whose main aim is to diffuse scientific culture and its related technologies.
Participants will ask as many of the following questions as time allows:

ARISS is an international educational outreach program partnering the participating space agencies, NASA, Russian Space Agency, ESA, CNES, JAXA, and CSA, with the AMSAT and IARU organizations from participating countries.
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. Further information on the ARISS program is available on the website http://www.ariss.org/(graciously hosted by the Radio Amateurs of Canada).
