Dear discuss-lfm members,

Per Gheri F's prompting regarding Telstar 401,
the message below was posted to the discuss-lfa list and
is appropriate for this list as well.  Thanks,
Gheri for reminding me!  NASA-TV still plans to broadcast
the LFA 2 programs (Jan. 23, 30 and Feb. 6th) as well
as the next Live From Mars broadcast, April 24th,
"Cruising Between the Planets" at 13:00-14:00 EST. 
Educators depending on their local PBS stations
should check local listings or call their local
PBS station for coverage plans.

Jan Wee, moderator of discuss-lfm
