An International Space Station school contact has been planned with participants at Ritsumeikan Moriyama Junior High School, Moriyama, Japan, on 29 Dec. The event is scheduled to begin at approximately 09:30 UTC. The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds. The contact will be direct between NA1SS and 8N3RM. The contact should be audible over Japan and adjacent areas. Interested parties are invited to listen in on the 145.80 MHz downlink. The contact is expected to be conducted in Japanese.







The 21st century requires us to have an international awareness of scientific, technological and social interaction in this turbulent age. Taking full advantage of a continuous education system as an affiliated school of Ritsumeikan University and Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University, we develop students' motivation and spirit of inquiry. Students enjoy the surrounding beautiful nature and great Lake Biwa, and the wonderful school life on a brand new campus. They also have opportunities to encounter various people; both local and from all over the world. We provide integrated programs of science and humanities, and advanced placement programs closely cooperating with the colleges of Ritsumeikan University, as well as a wide variety of field research and active learning. I believe our students' training, inspiration and talents will contribute to the world. The world is our stage: We will create it.
