NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. — Do astronauts text their moms? Do astronauts work out? Have astronauts ever seen little green men?

In early March 2020, students at River Ridge High School in New Port Richey could ask NASA astronauts these very questions.

The school is one of just nine in the entire country that will communicate with the International Space Station using amateur radio.

“Space is one of those things that, no matter if you’re in chess club or a football player or a cheerleader, it brings us all together,” said teacher Linda Nowicki, who says almost every facet of River Ridge played a part in winning this special opportunity.

The Gulf Coast Amateur Radio Club will supply the school with the expertise and equipment to make contact with the ISS.

Students will submit questions to win a chance to directly chat with the astronauts.
