The Cosmic Frequency

American ham radio operator in Austrialia makes historic contact with Soviet/Russian cosmonauts from Mir space station.

Before the likes of Skype and Twitter, curious people built and operated amateur ‘ham’ radios in order to connect with other curious people around the world.

The Cosmic Frequency tells the story of Maggie Iaquinto, an American-born Australian who forged a unique relationship with the Russian cosmonauts aboard the space station Mir.

  1. I love this story. American spent enormous amounts of money to find a pen that would write in the zero gravity of space. The Russians just used pencils.


Be nice!
