Hi folks,
I've been away at play...7 sunny days in glorius Acapulco, and now at
KSC for recent launch of STS-82 (wow!, a major life thrill for me).
Life is hard, but I DO appreciate my blessings. Anyway, 
I'm starting a long road towards email catchup and came across Dave E's
note about Discovery programming:

> The Discovery Channel has a new web site for teachers, The Discovery
> Channel School. ...  During the next few months the Discovery Channel 
> will have an Earth to Mars theme.

In case the direct Earth to Mars URL hasn't yet surfaced, see

Also be sure to note a Discovery Channel/NASA K-12 Internet Initiative
partnership to bring a week's worth of great WebChats with key
space folks.  Reserve some time during the week of April 7-11, 1997
for hot talk with cool people.  Each day's activities start 
at 2:00 p.m. ET / 11:00 a.m. PT and will last about 2 hours.  See
for more details.

Yours, Marc

PS  A shuttle launch simply cannot be adequately described except
by being there.  At night, the rockets turn night into a brief,
blue-tinged dawn.  Just amazing.  And the sound is felt as well as
heard.  WOW!  I can't believe I get paid for this.
