Just calling space to say happy Independence Day
Working with NASA and the Austin Amateur Radio Club, the boys of Cub Scout Pack 304 were able to talk directly to Astronaut Gregory Errol Chamitoff aboard the International Space Station. The event was part of a program called Amateur Radio on the International Space Station, or ARISS.

While many Americans may have picked up the phone to catch up with family and friends across the country this Independence Day, some Central Texas cub scouts chatted with friends in space.
