Watching the recent rocket take off to the International  Space Station one of the experts mentioned that the station orbits earth 16 times per day, which I think I heard before, but he went on to add something I had never thought about previously that is - they get 15 sunrises and 15 sunsets.
Now consider - it is 2055 - you are working on that space station, get the weekend off - you want to do one  of the major CQ or ARRL contests - you like to do all bands.
Each orbit is 90 minutes, you have 8 bands to work.
What operating  schedule would you prepare ahead of the contest to work all of those bands to the maximum? 

A bit of  fun to think about ahead of the holidays.
