Science Results for Everyone
Talk about distance learning. This investigation tested communications between the space station and ground for educational and commercial uses. Previously recorded and real-time video images sent from the space station via an amateur radio channel were received in various places on Earth.  This kind of communication could improve teaching in the natural sciences and help inform the public about applications of space research. Results show the station’s great potential as a platform for a variety of educational experiments. The investigation is part of the suite of communication equipment housed on station.
