During the 2019 World Scout Jamboree, the NA1WJ Amateur Radio Station will be in contact with the International Space Station as part of the ARISS Program. During the contact, which lasts about 10 minutes, we will have 10 Scouts speaking with an astronaut. That conversation will be a question and answer session, with the Scouts asking a list of prearranged questions.
Thanks to everyone who submitted their suggested questions. We’ve compiled that list, combining and editing those with similar questions, into the list of 30 questions shown below.
Please select your top questions for the astronaut. Select no more than 20. Selecting fewer is fine. There are a total of 30 questions in the list below.
Once we have your input, we’ll finalize the list of questions and forward it to the ARISS team.
We will publish the final list of questions before the Jamboree. We’ll also provide either live coverage of the contact and/or a video after the contact.
