ARISS SUISSE LAUSANE le jeudi 26 janvier 2017 à 11h06 UTC


ARISS contact planned for Swiss Space Center

An International Space Station radio contact has been planned for astronaut Thomas Pesquet KG5FYG/FX0ISS with Swiss Space Center – EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland.

The event is scheduled Thursday January 26, 2017 at approximately 11:06 UTC , which is 12:06 CEWT.

The telebridge contact will be operated by W6SRJ, located in California, USA.

The contact will be conducted in French.

School presentation

The Swiss Space Center works to facilitate access to the space sector for both research institutions and industrial partners, so that they can collaborate on the realization of international projects.  Based at EPFL, the Swiss Space Center also works to disseminate public awareness of space, to provide educational activities to school pupils and training to university students.

Participating Schools

Two schools have answered present to the offer of giving astronauts a ring onboard the International Space Station.

1. The Ecole primaire de Châteauneuf will participate with kids as young as 6, who are already very knowledgeable about space: they studied the Solar System and the Earth, various space missions and what role Europe and Switzerland have in them. They have been following Thomas Pesquet on social media since his training and they are ready to take over from him, as they already know what to put in the 1.5 kg suitcase that astronautes are allowed to bring onboard the ISS.

2. Middle school students from the Etablissement de Préverenges are also very well prepared: for these boys and girls gravity holds no secret anymore as they have studied the concept of forces, how to model, compute, and measure them; they have also learned about how astronauts eat on the ISS by conducting a workshop in the classroom.

Participants will ask as many of the following questions as time allows:

1 Léane: Quelle heure est-il en ce moment sur ISS?

2 Aasha: Fêteras-tu ton anniversaire autour de bougies, gâteau et de cadeaux?

3 Timea: Pouvez-vous s’il vous plait nous décrire ce que vous voyez hormis la Terre et le Soleil?

4 Valentina: Quelles sont les choses les plus drôles que vous faites en apesanteur?

5 Ilhan: Que faites-vous pendant votre temps libre?

6 Naya: Quel est la nourriture que tu n'aimes pas manger dans l'espace?

7 Elina: Quelles étaient tes matières préférées à l'école?

8 Ermin: Ta maman te manque?

9 Selma: As-tu observé les effets de la pollution sur notre planète?

10 Aya: Dans le Soyouz et ISS as-tu entendu des bruits qui font peur?

11 Dana: Quelle était votre motivation pour aller dans l’espace?

12 Lauryne: Entre combien de candidats avez vous été choisi et pourquoi?

13 Vincent: Pendant l’entraînement, quelle a été pour vous la chose la plus difficile a réaliser?

14 Pauline: Quelles sont les expériences scientifiques que vous faites?

15 Nathan: Qu’est-ce que cela vous procure d’être en apesanteur?

16 Robin: Votre sommeil est-il différent quand vous dormez dans l’ISS?

17 Alice: Qu’est-ce que vous faites si vous avez une urgence médicale?

18 Nathan: Y a-t-il des disputes entre les astronautes?

19 Noa: Qu’est-ce qu’il vous manque le plus de la vie normale?

20 Johan: Quelle est votre plus grande peur durant votre séjour dans l’espace?


ARISS is an international educational outreach program partnering the volunteer support and leadership from AMSAT and IARU societies around the world with the ISS space agencies partners: NASA, Russian Space Agency, ESA, CNES, JAXA, and CSA.

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.

ARISS FRANCE Le Creusot le 16 janvier 2017

                                                                 image ESA 
ARISS contact planned for school in Le Creusot, France

An International Space Station radio contact has been planned for astronaut Thomas Pesquet KG5FYG/FX0ISS with High School "Léon Blum", Le Creusot, France.

The event is scheduled Monday January 16, 2017 at approximately 11:53 UTC , which is 12:53 CEWT.
The telebridge contact will be operated by K6DUE, located in Maryland, USA.

School presentation

Le Creusot is a commune in the Saône-et-Loire department in the region of Bourgogne in eastern France. Formerly a mining town, its economy is now dominated by large metallurgical companies such as ArcelorMittal, Schneider Electric, and Alstom. In the 19th century, iron ore mines and forges around Le Creusot generated a business in steel, railways, armaments, and shipbuilding.

The lycée Léon Blum (Le Creusot-71) together with the lycée international Charles de Gaulle (Dijon-21) and lycée Pierre Paul Riquet (Saint-Orens-31) were selected after a call for projects in March 2015 by the CNES Youth Education department for the PROXIMA mission.

The project is named CERES (after the name of ancient roman goddess of agriculture)
Thomas will grow some seeds in space as part of the CERES educational experiment. A special cargo of mustard, lentil and radish seeds was sent to him on the Space Station. He should water them and take pictures at regular intervals to study how the seeds grow in space.

Students of the two partner high schools and a local elementary school are also participating to the list of questions.

Participants will ask as many of the following questions as time allows:

1. Maëlys (17): On imagine la vie dans l'espace très différente de celle sur Terre. Malgré les liaisons radios, vous sentez-vous coupé de la réalité?

2. Thomas (18): Qu’avez-vous ressenti pendant votre sortie extravéhiculaire? Avez-vous eu peur du vide?

3. Samia (11): Constatez-vous quelques changements corporels? Par exemple la croissance accélérée des poils, des cheveux ou des ongles,
ou à l'inverse une déshydratation de la peau, perte de cheveux, etc...?

4. Célia (12): Y aurait-il une différence de ressenti si la station elle-même n’était plus en chute libre
mais en réelle apesanteur, éloignée de toute source de gravité?

5. Lucas (15): Avez vous déjà réalisé notre expérience CERES sur la croissance des plantules?
sinon quelles hypotheses ou conclusions pouvez vous déjà faire?

6. Floriane (17): Serait-il possible d’entretenir des cultures ou développer un jardin dans l’ISS
afin de subvenir à une partie des besoins nutritionnels des astronautes?

7. Yassine (10): Pensez- vous qu'il soit possible de faire pousser dans l'espace des végétaux
dont la plus grande partie est ici enfouie sous terre comme les carottes par exemple? et des végétaux plus grands comme des arbustes?

8. Eva (17): Que pensez-vous de la participation et l'implication de lycéens à des expériences menées dans l'espace?

9. Clémence (17): Pensez-vous que des expériences comme CERES pourraient être réalisées sur Mars
et permettre dans les années à venir d'éventuelles cultures sur cette planète pour une future colonisation?

10. Martin (11): Le fait de rester plusieurs mois dans une même station avec cinq coéquipiers ne crée-t-il pas parfois des conflits à cause du stress?

11. Kheira (17): Sur Terre, l'homme est un géant de la découverte, de la technologie et du progrès.
Mais, au milieu de l'univers, comment se sent-on?

12. Louis-Emiland (15): Les particules dues aux pluies d'étoiles filantes ont-elles des conséquences (même minimes)
sur l'ISS ou peut-être même sur vous, astronautes?

13.  Dania (11): Quelles différences observez-vous entre les expériences réalisées sur Terre et dans l'Espace?

14.  Emma (11): Comment vous organisez vous dans l’ISS avec les autres astronautes? Existe-t-il un roulement pour les différents services,
comme la préparation des repas, etc...

15. Anais (15): Pouvez-vous vous vêtir comme vous le souhaitez dans la station spatiale internationale?
Avez-vous la possibilité de laver votre linge dans l’ISS?

16. Céleste (11): Pensez-vous au retour sur Terre? Si oui, appréhendez-vous cet instant?

17. Arina (17): Les astronautes suivent-ils (ensembles) toutes les traditions et fêtes de leur pays d'origine?
 (par exemple Noël le 25 décembre pour les Européens et Américains et le 7 janvier pour les Russes)

18. Léna (18): J’ai toujours rêvé d’être astronaute. Quels conseils me donneriez-vous?

19. Maël (10): Allez-vous réaliser des expériences dans l'ISS dans le but d’installer la vie sur Mars?

20. Sarah (17): Pensez-vous que votre génération d'astronautes ira sur Mars? Espérez-vous y aller vous-même?


ARISS is an international educational outreach program partnering the volunteer support and leadership from AMSAT and IARU societies around the world with the ISS space agencies partners: NASA, Russian Space Agency, ESA, CNES, JAXA, and CSA.

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.

ARISS contact planned for schools in Belgium

An International Space Station radio contact has been planned for astronaut Thomas Pesquet KG5FYG/FX0ISS with Collège Saint-Guibert, Gembloux, Belgium and Euro Space Center, Transinne, Belgium.

The event is scheduled Thursday January 12, 2017 at approximately 13:47 UTC , which is 14:47 CEWT.

The telebridge contact will be operated by K6DUE, located in Maryland, USA.

Three schools will participate to this ARISS contact:
- Saint-Guibert College (students at their college in Gembloux)
- Kindergarten and primary school Sainte-Lutgarde (students on Space Camp at  Euso Space Center)
- Saint-Laurent school (students on Space Camp at Euro Space Center)


Presentation Saint-Guibert College (Gembloux) Belgium

The Saint-Guibert College was founded by the congregation of the Brethren of the Chtistian Schools, following the principles of its founder Jean Baptiste de La Salle. This pedagogy is centered on the youngsters, adapted to their time and devoted to their social insertion, with special care for the most needy.

Our College, located at Gembloux in central Belgium, comprises 4 separate schools and 3100 students:
- The basic school with kindergarten and primary school 2 - 12, Saint–Guibert square
- The secondary school, general, technical and professional, 12 – 18, Orneau square
- The small school at the Station, for Dutch immersion tuition, 2 ½ - 12, and French kindergarten
- The kindergarten at Ernage.

Openness, listening, availability, faith, the place of the pupil are the values of our pedagogic project, summarized by Albert Jacquard’s saying: “ I am the relations I weave “

We want a school that favors:
A. The relation to oneself,
B. The relation to knowledge,
C. The relation to others.


Presentation Euro Space Center - Transinne - Belgium

Opened in June 1991, Euro Space Center is a discovery center specializing in socio-educational recreation. Our field of specialization is space.
Euro Space Center has become a leader in Belgium for the dissemination of knowledge about space sciences and technologies.

«One school, two locations in a green and country side environment»
For more than 130 ans, the Sainte-Lutgarde schools are active in the splendid landscape of central Brabant, in the town Lasne.  The schools feature two locations: one in the Lasne town center, with some 245 students of the primary cycle; the other at the Chapel site, with 40 students in Kindergarten and the two lower primary.

Headteacher Sainte-Lutgarde schools Mrs Dominique Hut states:
The Sainte-Lutgarde schools in Lasne aim to help the child build up competence and knowledge, while developing self-confidence, awareness and autonomy.
Our schools wish to promote the joy of learning in a serene and positive atmosphere, in line with requirements.
To meet these goals, the Child-Parent-Teacher partnership is an indispensable asset.


Saint-Laurent school

Since several years, the Saint-Laurent school participates to the Space Classes. Every year, the pupils of 3rd primary work on space topics, so we can devote many lessons to this thematic. Twice we had the opportunity to talk to Thomas and we follow his training for his great adventure on the ISS.  This year, two classes participate to the project and we are very excited to ask questions to Thomas on his work on the Space Station and his dream as an astronaut.

Participants will ask as many of the following questions as time allows:

Gembloux = College Saint-Guibert
Sombreffe = Ecole Saint-Laurent (Euro Space Center)
Lasnes = Ecole Sainte Lutgarde (Euro Space Center)
1. Gembloux : Louis - La nourriture a-t-elle le même goût que sur Terre?
2. Lasnes : Maëlle - Est-ce facile de toujours rester en apesanteur?
3. Gembloux : Pauline - Dormez-vous bien dans cette position?
4. Sombreffe : Quelle a été votre première sensation lors de votre entrée dans l’ISS?
5. Gembloux : Jérôme - Que faites-vous de votre temps libre?
6. Lasnes : Chiara - À quoi ressemble l’espace vue de l’ISS, voit-on quelque chose?
7. Gembloux : Marie - D’où vient l’oxygène que vous respirez dans la station?
8. Lasnes : Camille - Quel est le plus gros danger à bord de l’ISS?
9. Gembloux : Alexandre - Les animaux de compagnie sont-ils autorisés?
10. Sombreffe : Quelles sont les expériences que vous menez dans la station spatiale?
11. Gembloux : Lucie - Avez-vous besoin d’un casque audio pour communiquer entre vous dans la station?
12. Lasnes : Robin - Avez-vous du WiFi?
13. Gembloux : Nathan -  La notion de temps est-elle la même que sur la Terre?
14.Sombreffe: Quelles sont vos différentes tâches dans l’ISS?
15. Gembloux : Adeline - Comment entretenez-vous vos vêtements (lavage, séchage)?
16. Lasnes : Benjamin - Peut-on voir la pollution autour de la terre?
17. Gembloux : Hugo - Qui peut être astronaute?
18. Sombreffe : Comment avez-vous vécu le décollage ?
19. Gembloux : Dahlia - Avez-vous des expériences à réaliser dans le domaine de la santé?
20. Lasnes : Celia - Aimeriez-vous aller sur Mars?

ARISS is an international educational outreach program partnering the volunteer support and leadership from AMSAT and IARU societies around the world with the ISS space agencies partners: NASA, Russian Space Agency, ESA, CNES, JAXA, and CSA.

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.

REVUE et VOEUX du RAF Radioamateurs-France 2017

Bonjour à toutes et tous,

Voeux
On souhaite traditionnellement lors des vœux pour la nouvelle année, le
bonheur, la prospérité, la santé… Évidemment, je le souhaite, et plus que
jamais.
Mais j’y ajoute un brin de folie et de bonne humeur, d’inventivité et
d’énergie, de force et de courage, afin de mener à bien tous vos projets.

Qu’ils se réalisent et que cette année soit couronnée de succès individuels
et collectifs.

La radio ? bien sûr ! riche, intense, passionnée …

Un BON, un très bon  5e  ANNIVERSAIRE  à  Radioamateurs France.

Qu’écrivions nous dans la première lettre en janvier 2012 ?

« Radioamateurs … vaste sujet, pour bien comprendre, il faut remonter au
début du Radio Amateurisme.

 A la suite de ‘’l’épisode’’ de la F0, bien mal défendue par certains, et
de beaucoup d’autres sujets, c’est la goutte d’eau qui fait déborder le
vase …

Un constat récurent: nous sommes bien mal entendus, défendus et représentés.

Un certain nombre de personnes vont oser critiquer ouvertement
l’association ‘’historique’’.

Viendra la création de l’association ‘’Radioamateurs France’’ maintenant
connue et reconnue en France mais aussi dans la francophonie et plus …

La modestie de notre adhésion-cotisation est un atout majeur qui n’est pas
contraignante et est en adéquation avec notre philosophie d’ouverture à
tous.

Nous offrons une palette complète (revue, site, news, cours, …) accessible
à tous.

Notre devise reste d’actualité, information, défense, promotion,
formation reste d’actualité.
