Dear discuss-lfm members,


In the six weeks leading up each live television broadcast, we 
promised a weekly Challenge Question to get your brain cells firing. 
Since the next live broadcast, "LFM 102: Cruising Between the 
Planets," is scheduled to air from the Jet Propulsion Lab on April 24, 
it's time to post the first question.

CQ #1: If geology is the study of Earth (from the Greek geo-earth and 
logos-knowledge), what should the study of Mars be called?

Your answer can be either etymologically correct, with Greek 
derivation, or more humorous if you like! 

You are invited to send original student answers to us. We will list 
the kids' names online and token prizes will be given to those with 
the best answers. Send your answers to Jan Wee at:

Please include the words CHALLENGE QUESTION in the subject line of 
your email.

Hope your students will give this one a try!!  Please send 
answers by Saturday, March 29th.

Jan Wee, moderator
