Hi Phil,

Indeed that was at Qld Astrofest in 2005. Renato chatted to Andy Thomas
aboard the ISS. Played it back to everyone at dinner to enormous applause.
One of the coolest things I have ever seen at a star party.

Jeanette made this posting at the time and a transcript of the conversation
between Renato and Andy Thomas appears in this same thread :-
