Bozeman, Russia and the International Space Station

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

Bozeman High School has been invited by Astronomers without Borders to pilot a new program that connects schools from around the world with the International Space Station.

Bozeman along with a school in Russia was chosen as a pilot to test a new program that could span across the nation.

A live press conference took place April 10 between Bozeman and Russian students. During that meeting, Montana students listened to a brief presentation from students about life in Russia and heard about historic and new engineering of portholes on a spacecraft.

Eduard Chizhikov, a Moscow resident who works with RT360, produced the first-ever 360 degree video in zero gravity focusing on space and the International Space Station. When asking about about why the program is focusing on high school students, Chizhikov said communication is key and students are great at keeping up with technology changes.

Chizhikov said, “Right now we have a very international world. We need to communicate to each other and if schools in Russia and the Asia, we will bring Asian students next time, we can talk with each other, it will be great example of what we should do in the future.”

If successful, Astronomers without Borders hopes to open this program up internationally so schools from across the nation can also participate.
