Special transmission received by one of our surgeons… from Outer Space!

One of our surgeons, Dr. Timothy Mitchell, recently received a special transmission…from outer space!  In fact, it came from the ISS (International Space Station), and it was this special postcard commemorating the first space-to-ground wireless transmission, which took place back on November 13, 2000 !  Amateur Satellite Communications enthusiasts nationwide, like Dr. Mitchell and his local group called the Portland Amateur Wireless Association,  have been credited with helping to make breakthroughs in the science of satellite communications! That is truly far out!!IMG_4212
