Hearing from Astronaut Bill McArthur - one of his ham radio contacts was a question surprise from his daughter in space:

"So when I’m on orbit—and I think we did a ham radio contact with the girls’ elementary school. I think our younger daughter, it was her turn to ask a question. It’s like, “Dad, can we finally have a dog?”

So we got a dog."

HamTV is go for launch!

ARISS engineers in the US and Europe worked hard to deliver all the equipment to NASA at the end of December.

Watch for information on ground station configuration and updates as it gets closer to integration on the International Space Station.

On their monthly call, our International ARISS leaders looked back at some data from December’s SSTV submissions. Just part of the after-action review.

We thought you might enjoy a few bits of information they found.
