ISS200 miles high to be a little more precise.  On March 9th, 2007 a group of Mission Viejo High School (MVHS) students made radio contact with the International Space Station and for 7 minutes asked questions of the commander of Expedition 14 of the International Space Station (ISS).  The tie-in to this crazy long distance call...Commander Michael Lopez-Alegria is a class of '76 MVHS graduate as is Matt Bennett, the University of California Irvine student who set up the ham-radio connection with NASA to complete the transmission.  A group of approximately 15 students gathered around the microphone, taking turns asking questions of the astronaut.  The entire event, broadcast live to all of the school's classrooms, was recorded on video from the MVHS video studio and is available in both audio and video versions at Int'l Space Station.

Mission Viejo HS is one of the area's top rated high schools with a student population of approximately 2880 students.  It has been awarded the Blue Ribbon School Award of Excellence (the highest award an American School can receive) by the US Dep't of Education on three occasions and has also been recognized three times as a California Distinguished School.
