Dear discuss-lfm members, Just one day away from Program Two - "Cruising Between the Planets" - and the excitement continues to build! If you have not yet introduced your students to the Mars Team, the men and women behind the Mars Missions, be sure to visit the Mars Team web link at: http://quest.arc.nasa.gov/mars/team/index.html Here you will find 35 biographies (journals, too) that detail the lives of those who are integrally connected to the Mars Missions. Several of our featured guests who will appear in Program Two have online biographies available: Donna Shirley: Manager Mars Exploration Program Tony Spear: Project Manager Mars Pathfinder Lander mission Wayne Lee : Mission Planner, Mars operations Rob Manning: Flight System Chief Engineer, Mars Pathfinder Meeting Donna, Tony, Wayne and Rob in advance via the sharing their biographies will surely make the telecast more meaningful! Don't forget that on the same day as the live telecast (tomorrow) *Donna Shirley* will be a featured guest on the *Virtual Take Your Daughter To Work* Web Chats at 1:00 pm-1:45pm Pacific Standard Time. You must pre-register for this chat if your students plan to ask questions. You may also be an observer -- and this access does not require pre-registration. More information about this special event (and other scheduled chats with renown women in science, technology, and communications) is available at: http://quest.arc.nasa.gov/women/intro.html Are your students prepared to send *good* questions during the live telecast? Hundreds of questions fill the mailbox during the program and only a few *good* questions can be selected. To improve your student's chances of having their question selected, be sure the questions sent >>>>>> relate directly to the themes <<<<<< covered by this broadcast: * Mars Global Surveyor * Mars Pathfinder and Sojourner * navigation and trajectory maneuvers * careers Questions should be sent to email@example.com DURING the live telecast ONLY. If your question is not selected, be sure to send it to Researcher Q and A at firstname.lastname@example.org It's a good idea to check the Researcher Q and A archive found at http://quest.arc.nasa.gov/mars/ask/question.html to be sure it's not a "repeat" question before sending! The Program Two script for tomorrow's program will be distributed via updates-lfm newsletter today enabling you to better prepare students for the hour long program. We hope you find having access to the script allows you to "set the stage" for a more meaningful viewing experience. You are encouraged to share your & your student's reactions to Program Two via this forum following tomorrow's program. Jan Wee, moderator
