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.

Current discussions between the ARISS team and NASA suggest the possibility of voice contacts with the International Space Station (ISS) during Saturday’s ARRL Field Day activities this coming weekend.
An unpiloted Russian Progress cargo spacecraft undocked from the International Space Station Monday, completing its second and final undocking from the station since arriving in late November 2013.
The ISS Progress 53 resupply craft undocked from the aft port of the Zvezda service module at 9:29 a.m. EDT as the station orbited over Mongolia.
Following a marathon day that saw the launch and docking of three new crewmates, the fully staffed Expedition 40 crew of the International Space Station enjoyed a day off Thursday to rest and recharge for the mission ahead.
NASA astronaut Reid Wiseman, Soyuz Commander and cosmonaut Max Suraev of Roscosmos, the Russian Federal Space Agency, and European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Alexander Gerst were welcomed aboard the station when the hatches between their Soyuz TMA-13M spacecraft and the station were opened at 11:52 p.m. EDT Wednesday.
The next trio of crew members destined for the International Space Station is now looking forward to a Thursday arrival at the orbiting laboratory after their Soyuz spacecraft was unable to complete its third thruster burn to fine-tune its approach.
The International Space Station’s Expedition 39 crew members spent Thursday conducting science experiments and performing routine maintenance to get their orbital home in shape for the arrival of three new crewmates set to launch Tuesday.
Commander Koichi Wakata got an early start on the workday as he conducted the Reaction experiment shortly after the crew’s regular wakeup time at 2 a.m. EDT. This experiment involves a reaction time task that allows the crew and researchers to track the effects of fatigue on performance.
The International Space Station’s Expedition 38 crew supported a wide range of experiments Tuesday while three crew members get set for their journey back to Earth after nearly six months in space.
