A group of Sacramento area Girl Scouts had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity on Thursday morning. After months of preparation and collaboration with community volunteers, the scouts made live contact with an astronaut aboard the International Space Station. Communication was made via ham radio with technical help from volunteers with the River City Amateur Radio Communications Society.
