contatto 12 Febbraio


ARISS contact planned for schools in Vilnius, Lithuania    An International Space Station school contact has been planned for Scott Tingle KG5NZA with Vilniaus Jono Basanaviciaus Gymnasium together with Vilniaus Jono Basanaviciaus Progymnasium, Vilnius, Lithuania    The event is scheduled on Monday 12 February 2018 at approximately 12:45 UTC.       The contact will be a direct operated by LY1BWB.   The contact should be audible in parts of Europe. Interested parties are invited to listen in on the 145.800 MHz FM downlink.     School Information:  We are students of the Vilnius Jonas Basanaviciaus Gymnasium and Progymnasium.  Both of the schools are located in Vilnius, in the capital of Lithuania.  Here we are taught of all basic subjects such as physics, chemistry, biology, math, etc.  Our project team was assembled from both schools and each member has their own motivation to join, some of us are here to see what it's like to make an amateur radio contact and talk to a person in space, some are here for the generic experience, while others try to figure out if space science would be what they want to do in their future lives.    Our team extends from writers, filmmakers to technical people, so everyone can try out everything and do what they like most.  Best thing about this project is that it is a very unique way to celebrate the 100 years of Lithuania??s independence.  All involved students will be able to mark this historical moment with such a powerful milestone and inspire future generations so that they never stop learning new things and never give up reaching new horizons.    

Participants will ask as many of the following questions as time allows:    
1. Haroldas 18: Jonas Basanavicius was named person of the century in Lithuania. What kind of person would you choose to be your country's person of the century?   
2. Radvilas 14: Can you see Lithuania from your current position?   
3. Dominykas 18: What is your opinion about inflatable habitats that were tested in the ISS?

About ARISS: 

Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) is a cooperative venture of international amateur radio societies and the space agencies that support the International Space Station: NASA, Russian Space Agency, ESA, JAXA, and CSA. The US Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) and the  National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) provide special support.  

ARISS offers an opportunity for students to experience the excitement of Amateur Radio by talking directly with crewmembers on board the International Space Station. Teachers, parents and communities see, first hand, how Amateur Radio and crewmembers on ISS can energize youngsters’ interest in science, technology, and learning.

The primary goal of ARISS is to promote exploration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) topics by organizing scheduled contacts via amateur radio between crew members aboard the ISS and students in classrooms or informal education venues.  With the help of experienced amateur radio volunteers, ISS crews speak directly with large audiences in a variety of public forums.  Before and during these radio contacts, students, teachers, parents, and communities learn about space, space technologies, and amateur radio.  For more information, see: http://www.ariss.org/ , http://www.ariss-eu.org and https://www.amsat-on.be/hamtv-summary/ .

bentornato Paolo Nespoli


14 Dicembre 2017

L’astronauta dell’ESA Paolo Nespoli è rientrato a Terra questa mattina dopo 139 giorni nello spazio. Il viaggio verso casa dalla Stazione Spaziale Internazionale ha richiesto di passare dai 28.800 km/h di crociera all’arresto finale in appena tre ore.

Paolo ed i membri dell’equipaggio Randy Bresnik, della NASA, e Sergei Ryazansky, di Roscosmos, hanno toccato terra, nella steppa kazaka, alle 09:37 ora italiana (08:37 GMT).

La navetta Soyuz MS-05 ha sopportato le sollecitazioni della discesa e dell’atterraggio come previsto: il suo scudo termico ha raggiunto i 1.600 gradi durante il rientro in atmosfera, mentre all’interno della navicella gli astronauti hanno sperimentato fino quattro volte il proprio peso corporeo.

A 10 km di altitudine i paracadute si sono aperti, prima che i retrorazzi fornissero la frenata finale prima di toccare terra.

“Il cosiddetto atterraggio morbido è come un frontale tra un camion ed una utilitaria – e tu sei nell’utilitaria” ricorda Paolo dal suo atterraggio del 2011.

Durante la missione di cinque mesi, Paolo ha orbitato la Terra 2.224 volte, volato attraverso 35.000 albe e tramonti, e viaggiato per 94 milioni di chilometri.

Questa è stata la terza missione e la terza visita alla Stazione Spaziale per Paolo, portando il tempo trascorso nello spazio a 313 giorni, al secondo posto per un astronauta ESA dopo Thomas Reiter.

Vita è la terza missione di lunga durata dell’Agenzia Spaziale Italiana – ASI – frutto di un accordo con la NASA in cambio della fornitura di moduli per la Stazione.

Ritorno alla vita sulla Terra


Paolo ha portato a termine oltre 60 esperimenti durante la sua missione denominata Vita, acronimo di Vitalità, Innovazione, Tecnologia ed Abilità.

Il suo stesso corpo è stato oggetto di ricerca: i suoi occhi, i suoi mal di testa, gli schemi di sonno e le abitudini alimentari sono stati monitorati per comprendere meglio come l’uomo si adatti alla vita nello spazio.

Le annotazioni della temperatura corporea, gli esercizi muscolari e abbondanti campioni di sangue e di saliva completeranno il quadro e prepareranno l’uomo per future missioni lontano dalla Terra.

Dall’orbita a circa 400 km sopra il pianeta, Nespoli ha inviato i comandi ad un robot umanoide in Germania per riparare tre pannelli solari danneggiati su un terreno marziano simulato, mostrando come astronauti e robot lavoreranno insieme nelle future missioni planetarie.

La vita nello spazio potrebbe diventare più facile grazie a tablet e smartphone – Paolo ha testato un sistema vivavoce che visualizza le istruzioni durante delle attività complesse.


Due capsule Soyuz agganciate alla ISS

C’è stato molto traffico durante la missione Vita: Paolo ha dato il benvenuto a cinque veicoli in visita e ne ha visti tre lasciare di nuovo la Stazione. Ha preso parte all’attracco di due veicoli utilizzando il braccio robotico della Stazione, ed ha dato supporto a quattro uscite extra veicolari.

Paolo sarà ora impegnato con riunioni e test. Gli astronauti subiscono una forma di rapido invecchiamento nello spazio e devono riadattarsi a vivere in condizioni di gravità. Gli scienziati studieranno come il suo corpo reagisce, come caso di studio.

Il prossimo astronauta ESA a viaggiare verso la Stazione sarà Alexander Gerst, il cui lancio è previsto la prossima estate.


Nespoli torna sulla Terra


ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli will return to Earth on 14 December after his third mission to the International Space Station. Paolo and crewmates Randy Bresnik of NASA and Sergei Ryazansky of Roscosmos will return in their Soyuz MS-05 spacecraft. Watch the events from farewell to touchdown live by tuning in at these times:

  • 01:30 GMT (02:30 CET): farewells and hatch closure. Hatch closure scheduled for 02:00 GMT (03:00 CET)
  • 04:30 GMT (05:30 CET): undocking of Soyuz MS-05 spacecraft. Undocking scheduled for 05:16 GMT (06:16 CET)
  • 07:15 GMT (08:15 CET): reentry and landing coverage. First thruster firing to brake and reenter atmosphere scheduled for 07:44 GMT (08:44 CET). Touchdown in Kazakhstan expected at 08:38 GMT (09:38 CET)

The ride home from the International Space Station will see the trio brake from 28 800 km/h to a standstill at touchdown in barely three hours.

Paolo completed more than 60 experiments during his Vita mission, which stands for Vitality, Innovation, Technology and Ability.

His body was itself an arena for research: his eyes, headaches, sleeping patterns and eating habits were monitored to learn more about how humans adapt to life in space.

Temperature recordings, muscle exercises and plenty of blood and saliva samples will add to the picture and prepare humans for missions further from Earth.
