ARISS at the MOST @ MOST | Syracuse | New York | United States

The MOST will make contact with the International Space Station (ISS) on Friday, Feb. 23 via amateur radio and speak with NASA Astronaut Mark Vande Hei, who launched to the ISS in September 2017!

For this special event, the MOST will open at a special time of 8:30 a.m. on Friday to allow visitors to experience this rare opportunity. Regular exhibit admission rates apply.

Contact will last approximately ten minutes, and Boys & Girls Club of Syracuse Central Village students will ask Mark Vande Hei a series of questions until the ISS reaches the horizon and communication is lost.

Join us at the MOST for an exciting and memorable experience! Following our contact with the ISS, enjoy a planetarium show, see A Beautiful Planet in IMAX – a film from the perspective of astronauts aboard the ISS – and explore the Flight & Space exhibit with activities from Lockheed Martin!

Exhibit admission rates apply.
