Upcoming ARISS Contact Schedule as of 2015-05-26 02:30  UTC

Quick list of scheduled contacts and events:

On  behalf of the ARISS-International team, it is with great sadness that 
we announce the passing of long-time ARISS team member Nick Lance, KC5KBO,  
SK.  Nick passed away on May 24 from an aneurism of the aorta.
Nick was  a smart, caring, considerate and helpful person that loved the 
amateur radio  hobby.   As the primary amateur radio license trainer for the 
ISS  astronauts, Nick played an integral role in encouraging and training 
countless  astronauts (US, Canada, Japan and Europe) to pursue their amateur 
radio license  and become active on ARISS.  He inspired and trained dozens of 
NASA's  aerospace education specialists (who talk to schoolteachers 
nationwide) to get  their ham tickets. He also taught a "Hamster" course to middle 
schoolers,  inspiring them to pursue careers in technology through Amateur 
Radio and ARISS  activities.  
Personally, I enjoyed working with Nick both as a NASA  engineer and an 
amateur radio operator.  I will miss his quick wit and  sense of humor.   Nick 
will be deeply missed by many. 
Our deepest  sympathy goes out to all that knew Nick, especially Renee, his 
wife, and all his  family members.
