Thanks for making space contact a success
We would like to thank all the sponsors who helped make Joamie School’s contact with the International Space Station an overwhelming success.
Our appreciation goes out to First Air for their help with the first northern space contact and for future contacts in the Arctic, NorthwesTel for their technical assistance, the Driving Force for ground vehicles, the Legion and Nunavut Power Corporation for their contributions, and John Graham the airport manager for setting up his astronaut display at Joamie School.
We have already begun work on the next space contact, which will be held jointly by Manordale Public School in Ottawa and a school in Kuujjuaq.
Ron Ralph, Steve McFarlane and Lori McFarlane
