Hi %recipient.firstname%,


Did you know that there are schools where the students have talked to the astronauts in the International Space Station (ISS)? They were able to ask questions, e.g. about the scientific experiments done up there.

Communication is established with the help of local amateur radio operators. For the students, it's an experience that can stimulate their interest in science and engineering (STEM). Contacts have been established with classes of all levels. The educational component is adjusted accordingly.

For more information, see the ARISS website.


Even if you don't have the opportunity to talk to the astronauts, you can view the Earth as they see it from the ISS. If the picture is black, that means the ISS is on the night side of the Earth . Come back later or see when the International Space Station passes over your location.



With imagination, you can travel into space without leaving Earth. To help you do this, why not create Animaplates spaceship puppets? I bet they will inspire stories of space travel and encounters with extraterrestrials!
