ITV News has broadcast a report about the amateur radio contact between City of Norwich School GB2CNS and UK astronaut Tim Peake GB1SS which took place February 26,2016.

The pupils asked a range of questions from ‘what happens to the blood if you cut yourself in space’ to ‘what’s your favourite place to fly over’ to ‘what sort of experiments are you doing in space’? The 10 minute live link up was made possible by the Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) team.
