Live on the Internet - 'Habla ISS' radio contact with Pedro Duque

25 October 2003

On 26 October at 13:07 CET (12:07 UT), six groups of children from schools in Spain, and one school in Portugal, will talk to Pedro Duque on board the International Space Station during an ARISS radio contact. You too can listen in live on the Internet, as Pedro talks to them from space.

The children are all prize winners in the 'Habla ISS' contest that was held earlier this year. School classes were asked to send their questions for Pedro, along with drawings and essays.

The 'Verbum Casa Das Palabras' museum in Vigo will host the live radio contact with ISS, during which the children will ask their questions to directly Pedro Duque.

Listen and watch LIVE!!
