COUNTDOWN BEGINS – Delcastle Students Talk to the International Space Station!
Delcastle students will ask questions live to International Space Station astronaut Dr. Serena M. Auñón-Chancellor on Wednesday, Oct. 24, as the ISS orbits over New Castle County between 1:48 p.m. and 1:58 p.m. In partnership with Radio Newark, which is managing the amateur radio contact, Delcastle is the first school in Delaware to be selected for an ARISS (Amateur Radio on the Insternational Space Station) communication. Hodgson Engineering and Manufacturing students and teacher Tyrone Thompson built an antenna for the contact. To watch the event, go to www.facebook.com/NCCVTSD/, as we’ll be broadcasting live! The space suit was delivered Monday morning as part of a space products exhibit that ILC Dover, manufacturer of used in space missions, has brought to Delcastle so that science students can learn more about the space environment leading up to the live ISS contact.
