The VHF handheld radio model that has been used by the ARISS program to connect students worldwide with astronauts on board the International Space Station (ISS) for over 16 years has given an error message and is unusable at this time. While the ARISS technical team evaluates the best path to restore operation from the Columbus module, ARISS contacts will be supported using the Kenwood radio in the Russian Service Module. During this period, the packet digipeater will be unavailable.
Three International Space Station crew members are scheduled to depart the orbiting outpost Saturday, June 18. NASA TV will provide coverage of their preparations for departure and return to Earth beginning at 8:15 a.m. CDT tomorrow, June 17.

In 7F on Norwegian flight DY641 18.20 from Bergen to Oslo tonight. Norwegian has wifi - and I get FLYOVER ALERT when I turn on after take off. Hei! After a year of tracking you from my garden in Oslo without seeing you, I am very excited. I realize I am on the South side of the plane. You are passing over England. Hei, presto! Can I see you?!? And after a five minute count down, you glide by! Or, more accurately, fly by at 20-25 times the speed the plane is doing. I SAW YOU!!! So happy.

The ARISS commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the joint Apollo-Soyuz mission is going quite well. Some absolutely beautiful pictures have been posted on the ARISS SSTV image gallery. See:
Kudos to all on the great reception!
Also, fantastic efforts on ISS and in Dallas Texas yesterday for the Moon
Day/Frontiers of Flight Museum contact. It was fitting to have a US school
and the Russian Cosmonauts conducting a joint ARISS contact on the 40th anniversary of the of the Apollo-Soyuz docking.
I'm sure that what you see in this video looks pretty familiar to many of you because that's exactly what happened to many of us, myself included. Ironically, the link was suggested to me by Maryam 9K2MD, a young girl from Kuwait who got her ham radio license for the sole purpose of talking to Sergey Krikalev (onboard ISS) and eventually succeeded in doing so.
