ARISS achieved its 1000's contact

ARISS is proud to announce the 1000th contact with space.ARISS was formed to allow students of every age to ask questions to astronauts in space using simple radioamateur means.Over the last 16 years, these contacts have enabled students to ask many questions, pushing forward interest and motivation in S.T.E.M.The amateur community has demonstrated that they can achieve a very high degree in reliability and professionalism in offering such contacts.Thanks to all those volunteers the mark of 1000 contacts has been reached, and with Tim Peake currently on board of ISS we hope for many more contacts.
