British School Connects to ISS via AudioVid

The Sevenoaks School successfully hosted a live satellite video link with the orbiting International Space Station (ISS) on 20 January 2011 during a presentation by Dr. Nicholas Patrick, a NASA representative and mission specialist. Sevenoaks is the first UK school to have attempted a live video and audio link with a space vehicle of any sort. Other schools in the UK have spoken to ISS astronauts via radio links. All six space station crewmembers participated in a NASA PAO TV downlink for the Russian educational event with the Sevenoaks School at Sevenoaks, Kent, United Kingdom.
