Subject: Olympus Mon gone by the wayside?

I just read in July 1997 issue of Astronomy (p32, Event Horizon) that Olympus Mons has now been replaced by Tharsis Bulge as the tallest volcano on Mars. And not only that, Margaritifer Sinus rather is now considered to be the lowest point on Mars. How about that news folks. Also, there has been several letters lately about building Mars Scapes. For ours, we use clay, sand, gravel and rocks the kids picked up. I also included cinders from the running track to give it that reddish, rusty appearance. We enclosed one of the scapes with black paper and poked little holes in it. Then Lea put little Christmas lights through the holes to give Mars a star studded look. Our school year ends on the 30th. But, I will continue to keep in touch with Live from Mars from home. Hope all of you wonderful teachers will do the same. I will be looking up towards Mars on July 4th with dreams in my mind and hope in my heart.
