hopefully this Saturday.  

They are doing a REALLY GREAT job of updating the countdown, including
COOL picturs of the Proton Rocket, on a Web site at:

The main Mars 96 Home Page is:

Also,  I found the COOLEST way to make images and maps of Mars, 
with a variety of resolutions and map projections (and COLOR option).

This is a web site that would work VERY well with students who

The site is:

Also a GREAT site for viewing images from the Viking landers is:

Have fun!
