      ARISS is an international educational outreach program
      partnering the participating space agencies, NASA, Russian
      Space Agency, ESA, CNES, JAXA, and CSA, with the AMSAT and
      IARU organizations from participating countries. ARISS
      offers an opportunity for students to experience the
      excitement of Amateur Radio by talking directly with
      crewmembers on-board the International Space Station.
      Teachers, parents and communities see, first hand, how
      Amateur Radio and crewmembers on ISS can energize
      youngsters' interest in science, technology, and learning.
      Further information on the ARISS programme is available on
      the website http://www.rac.ca/ariss (graciously hosted by
      the Radio Amateurs of Canada). Information about the next
      scheduled ARISS contact can be found at
