The full recording – Eleanor Palmer talks to ISS




At 9.51am on Wednesday 4th November, using a telebridge via Western Australia, we spoke to Kjell Lindgren, an American astronaut currently on the ISS.

This was done with help from local and national amateur radio enthusiasts…a huge thank you to Martin ( in Australia) Ciaran Morgan and parent Mark Drayton who inspired this amazing event.
