Dear discuss-lfm members,

Just in case you haven't had time to access the NASA JPL
Mars Pathfinder web site and check on how Mars Pathfinder
is doing, here is the latest update.

Hope everyone had a relaxing break if you were on vacation
over the holidays!  We are all looking forward to the start of
our Planet Explorer Toolkit debate which will begin next week
on Monday, Janaury 6th.  Thanks to all who have posted their
Planet Explorer Toolkit proposals and yes, even to those of you
who posted after the December 20th deadline.  We plan to include
all your ideas (even if you got caught in the holiday rush!)

Welcome back to LFM!

Jan Wee

MARS PATHFINDER MISSION STATUS

                                      December 18, 1996

                               12:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time

Sojourner, a 10-kilogram (22-pound) rover tucked away on a petal of the 
Mars Pathfinder spacecraft, got a 'wake up' call on Dec. 17 from flight 
controllers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. After waking up, Sojourner 
conducted an internal health check and sent data back to the flight team 
that all was well.

The Pathfinder flight team was ecstatic with the rover data, which
showed that all systems within the rover were operating normally. In 
addition, data from the rover's main science instrument -- the alpha 
proton x-ray spectrometer -- showed that it was operting properly.

"The rover woke up, did its internal health check, sent the lander 
its status data and went back to sleep, all as planned," said
Art Thompson, rover operations team member. "All subsystems were 
verified as being in good health."

Pathfinder continues to perform very well on its 500 million-kilometer 
(310 million-mile) journey to Mars, the team reported.  Currently the 
spacecraft is 4 million kilometers (2.5 million miles) from Earth, traveling 
at a speed of 3.1 kilometers per second (7,000 miles per hour). Its 
destination, Mars, is currently about 190 million kilometers (118 million
miles) 
away. All temperatures and power utilization of the lander and cruise 
stage remain at their predicted levels for this phase of the mission.

The spacecraft was spun down from 12.3 rpm to 2 rpm on Dec. 11. Flight 
controllers first instructed the spacecraft to turn to a Sun angle of 
50 degrees and an Earth angle of 32 degrees. This allowed them to use 
all four operating Sun sensors. The spacecraft executed the commanded 
spin down to the normal cruise spin rate of 2 rpm in steps of 2 rpm 
at a time.

Once the normal spin rate was established, the team turned on the 
spacecraft's star scanner on Dec. 12. Star scanner data allows the 
spacecraft to establish full, three-axis knowledge of its orientation 
in space. This is the normal cruise attitude control mode and the 
one in which all trajectory correction maneuvers will be performed.

While Sun sensor #5 continues to work well after a software fix, the 
flight team continues to investigate the cause of the loss of Sun sensor 
head #4. The team expects to reach a likely conclusion on the cause of 
the problem within the next month or two.

Dave Gruel, Pathfinder flight director at JPL, conducted the Dec.16 
health check of the lander science instruments, including the atmospheric 
sensor instrument and meteorology (ASI/MET) package and the imager. 
Temperature, pressure and accelerometer readings from the
atmospheric/meteorology 
instrument verified it was in normal working order. Power and dark current 
measurements received from the imager while it was imaging the darkness 
around it, confirmed that the instrument was working properly, Gruel said.

Richard Cook, Pathfinder mission operations manager at JPL, reported 
today that Pathfinder has been fully checked out for this phase of 
the mission and that all subsystems are "go" for a successful seven-month 
cruise to Mars.

The next major in-flight event will be Pathfinder's first trajectory 
correction maneuver, which is scheduled for Jan. 4, 1997.

WEARING MANY HATS
John Moreau - http://quest.arc.nasa.gov/mars/team/moreau.html

January 3, 1997

Whenever the general public or the media call or come to our 
department for the latest information on the Mars Global Surveyor 
(MGS) or Mars Pathfinder missions, they always end up here at the 
Space Photography Laboratory (SPL). Our name is kind of deceiving; 
we are a laboratory -- graduate students as well as postdoctoral 
researchers use our facilities all the time -- but we also function 
as a library and a "museum" of sorts.

As one of 17 NASA Regional Planetary Image Facilities in the world, 
our job is to store the data returned by spacecraft. These data are 
available for everyone to use in the facility. Since these data are 
essentially space history in the making, we also serve as a type of 
archive, or museum. Data sets are preserved using archive-quality 
materials and equipment like acid-free papers and special 
transparent sleeves for hard-copy photographs and temperature and 
humidity control systems for the entire lab.

When the data from the Mars missions are returned and distributed 
by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, they will end up here, just like 
data from the Viking missions in the 1970s. We've already begun to 
collect whatever information we can about both missions, as well as 
the failure of Mars 96, to make available to the public and the press, 
and especially to teachers and students who visit often.

On November 7 professors and staff, as well as a reporter from a 
local newspaper, came to the SPL and gathered around our TV in 
anticipation of the MGS launch. We were all disappointed by the 
"scrubbed" launch the day before and were hoping that this one would 
be successful. I had set up the VCR to record the launch as well as 
the press conference that would follow. Then I had to go to my 
planetary geology class, so I would not be able to see it "live" like 
everyone else. When I came back, I learned that the launch was 
successful. The reporter asked questions of some of our research 
professionals about the logistics of Mars exploration.

Because Mars Pathfinder launched in the middle of the night, we 
didn't have an audience crowding into the lab to watch as with MGS. 
But we still recorded the launch to be played back upon request the 
next day. We probably played it for people at least a dozen times the 
next day.

Lately, I've been trying to learn as much as I can as quickly as I can 
about both missions -- the instruments flying on both spacecraft, 
the logistics of orbital entry for MGS and aerobraking for Pathfinder, 
what experiments the rover Sojourner will carry out on the surface 
of Mars, and more -- in order to be able to talk about both missions 
to teachers and classes that visit the SPL. We've probably had about 
10 classes of roughly 30 kids between third and eighth grade come 
in since the MGS launch. They always have lots of good questions 
about the missions and about Martian geology and meteorology in 
general. Sometimes, these questions are tough! I do my best to 
answer them and encourage them to learn more on their own, by 
using the Internet for example. It's great to watch them get more 
excited about science through what they learn here from us.

Adults are enthusiastic about Mars exploration, too. On December 14 
we held our second annual Open House. About 50 teachers from 
around the state came to participate in an all-day workshop/open 
house on planetary geology, which included information on missions 
to Mars, both past and present. We gave away a Mars globe and the 
Viking 20th Anniversary Multimedia CD-ROM as door prizes. It was a 
fun event but it was hard work! I began organizing it, with the help 
of others in September, but we all wished we had more time! The 
teachers seemed very appreciative and enthusiastic, however, and 
the work was well worth it. Hopefully, they will take information 
and activities back to their classes to teach them more about space 
exploration.

I'm at work right now while writing this. Not all of my job consists 
of public education/outreach though. As a librarian here, I have to 
make sure that data sets are easy to find and organized, that 
missing images, documentation or maps are accounted for or 
replaced, that the entire SPL collection is documented and located in 
places that are logical and consistent (i.e. easy to find) and that lab 
"materials" (from paper to data sets to computers) are available for 
researchers.

Today I'm working on a continuing project to catalog all of our books 
and nonserial publications for entry into a database that I'm creating 
in Filemaker Pro. Currently, we have no established system for 
finding books by subject. Imagine going into your local library and 
asking for a book on craters and being told that the book was 
"somewhere on those shelves, mixed in randomly with hundreds of 
other books on many different topics"! Although we have fewer books 
and publications than a public or school library, we still have a lot 
and that's kind of what it's like! So, I've decided to organize this 
collection into a database where you can search by a topic and find 
exactly which books we have and where they are located. When this 
is done, people should be able to access it via the Web from their 
homes or classrooms. This will take some time! 

Before I start this for today, I'll check the Web for updates on both 
Mars missions (we post the latest news in the hall for everyone to 
see) and also update out information on the Galileo mission. We are 
creating a "digital catalog" of press-release images from the Galileo 
science teams as soon as they become available. The more 
information and images I can get on current missions, the better I 
can inform visitors to the SPL about what's going on in space 
science.

I think I wear many different hats around here: student, librarian, 
public-relations specialist, teacher, archivist, lab assistant, 
sometimes planetary geologist (I've been asked to help "do science" 
once or twice on Galileo). The job is definitely never boring! Well, 
got to get back to work! Happy New Year!

ROVING FOR ROCKS ON THE RED PLANET: THE MARS PATHFINDER 
MISSION

Mars is the most Earth-like planet in our solar system. After Earth, 
it is the only other planet that is capable of supporting life. Recent 
scientific evidence suggests that life did once exist on Mars and 
makes the planet a doubly exciting target for exploration. Mars is a 
unique terrestrial planet. Evidence suggests it underwent major 
climatic changes and has a geologic record of surface rocks that 
spans the entire history of the solar system. The geologic record 
suggests that early climate on Mars was warmer and wetter, and 
that liquid water a requirement for life may have been present. 
Studying the geological, climatological, and exobiological conditions 
of Mars may provide the data science needs to address the almost 
theological question of: "Are we alone in the universe?"

QUESTION
Why don't the rockets use nuclear fuel?  Jake Argo, Grade 5, Monticello
School
Sender: owner-answers-lfm
Precedence: bulk

ANSWER from Cathy Davis on December 10, 1996:
Some rocket engines were developed to use nuclear fuel. One developed in the
early 1970's, called NERVA, demonstrated performance superior to any chemical
rocket engines. However, there are many safety concerns about using nuclear
fuel
for rocket engines.



*******************************************************
QUESTION:
What is the expected operational life of the rover?


ANSWER: from Howard J Eisen on January 1, 1997:

The Rover should operate in the Martian environment for several weeks, 
maybe months.  As the Rover lands in late summer, there is less 
sunlight available each day.  Less light means less electrical power 
from the solar panel and also less heat from the sunlight.  Those two 
things will combine to eventually cause a failure in the Rover as some 
electronic component gets too cold.  
     
The Rover's mission has been designed so that it accomplishes all 
primary objectives within the first seven days.  These tasks include 
mobility, imaging (of the lander and of Martian terrain), science 
(APXS of rocks and soil) and technology experiments.    
    



*******************************************************
QUESTION: Mars  Global Surveyor maps Mars will you study the areas of
pictures taken by the 
 Viking mission to see if there has been any changes.


ANSWER from Cathy Davis on January 2, 1997:
Yes. Although, we will have a camera that has different spatial resolution
than
the Viking missions. A major interest is to see what, if any, changes have
occurred in the last 20 years.


*******************************************************
QUESTION: How would Pathfinder be able to get any traction and not be blown
away?  = 
Are there spikes on the tires?


ANSWER from Cathy Davis on Jan 2,1997;
 Each tire has a series of steel spikes which look like little spade 
     shovels.  There are about 200 per wheel.
