Contact the Astronauts of the International Space Station

Wednesday, June 25 - 10:45am


Space Station Mission Patch (ISS17)We are now at capacity for the space station up-link, however, you may still have the opportunity to listen to a live feed as we contact the ISS. If you were unable to reserve your spot in the theater, we will have a satellite location set up in the rotunda.

Join us at the Mayborn Museum as we connect with the International Space Station in a live up-link, which will take place via telebridge with station WH6PN in Hawaii. The event will be hosted by the Mayborn Museum in conjunction with ARISS (Amateur Radio on the in the International Space Station),the Baylor Amateur Radio Club, the Heart of Texas Amateur Radion Club, and Robinson Elementary, in the museum's SBC Theater.

Learn about life in space as Astronaut Greg Chamitoff talks about his experiences on the Space Station. During the interview, the International Space Station will be tracked on screen and the contact maintained until the Space Station disappears over the horizon. The estimated contact time will be nine minutes.

If you have made a reservation, seating will begin at 10:00am in the SBC Theater and doors will close at 10:30am.

If you were unable to make a reservation, seating in the rotunda will be limited and we recommend that you arrive early.

The museum will open at 10:00am.
