ESA CERN Contact Successful


On Tuesday, November 22, eighteen students attending the ESA CERN Geneva Science Festival each asked a question of Bill McArthur, KC5ACR, via the telebridge station, NN1SS, in Greenbelt, Maryland. The event was attended by approximately 300 students and teachers, and at least one television station and a professional photographer. ESA will edit and post a video of the contact on its website in the near future.
