Hi Everyone,
    It was a great day today since the Pathfinder actually launched.  I 
was able to tape the launch from a late night news program "Up to the 
Minute" .  I showed my kids the launch tape along with a JPL Pathfinder 
tape I had gotten from my sister in Texas; I wore my special Mars 
T-shirt: and I gave my kids Mars bars to celebrate.  It was fun.  We also 
watched about the water found on the moon and had an interesting 
discussion about future space travel.  My kids are debating what to put 
into their P.E.T. kit tomorrow.  Hopefully we'll reach consensus by the 
deadline.
     I also got to watch Donna Shirley on Good Morining America, but 
wasn't prepared to tape it.  It was a good interview and informational 
spot.  Some of my students saw it too.  It's fun to watch people you've 
met on TV and to be so knowledgeable about and aware of what's happening. 
 Adds to the excitement.
