11/10/2016

“ARISS Milestones,” a video of a presentation by past ARISS-EU Chair Gaston Bertels, ON4WF, on the history of Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) is now available.

Bertels delivered the approximately 12-minute overview during the 6th Polish Nationwide Conference of ARISS Contributors and Supporters, held in Ostrów Wielkopolski on October 22.

In his presentation, Bertels noted that the primary objective of ARISS is educational outreach, by making it possible for students on Earth to speak with ISS crew members via ham radio, “and get answers direct from space.”
