NASA Commentator Lori Meggs at the Marshall Space Flight Center talks to a group of students who had the unique opportunity to ask questions to astronaut Tim Kopra KE5UDN as the space station flew over Huntsville, Alabama
The students contacted the station using a Ham radio. It was all thanks to a research activity called Amateur Radio on the International Space Station, or ARISS, which is approaching the 1000th call like this to students.
