STS50-39-006 (25 June-9 July 1992) --- Astronaut Richard N. Richards, STS-50 mission commander, stands by a monitor displaying a group of elementary pupils (Addison Elementary School, Marietta Georgia) who were among the many students and others on Earth who communicated with members aboard the Earth-orbiting Space Shuttle Columbia. The Shuttle Amateur Radio Experiment (SAREX) has flown on a number of STS missions now, allowing hundreds of students and "hams" the chance to communicate with licensed radio operators in space. Richards is KB5SIW and astronaut Ellen S. Baker, the crew's other licensed operator, is KB5SIX.
