Despite having to be at the school early in the morning after working late the night before on last minute preparation, the team pulled off a nearly perfect contact with the International Space Station. With strong signals until just before our anticipated loss of signal time at the horizon, all 22 students who had prepared questions for Commander Koichi Wakata were able to ask their questions and hear the answers. Even Dr. Catherine Neuhoff, the principal of MMSTC, got to ask an impromptu question before the assembled crowd gave a big cheer and we signed off with NA1SS.

You can see a video of the contact as well as the report by TV Warren News on the Macomb Mathematics Science Technology Center website.
