Date: Thu, 12 Jun 1997 09:17:44 -0500
Dear Educators, Excitement is building as the Pathfinder spacecraft maneuvers towards its goal of landing on Mars this July 4th. Passport to Knowledge will be on hand to bring you virtually to "where the action is" -- on location at NASA JPL, at The Planetary Society's Planetfest celebration/convention, and national museums (American Museum of Natural History in NY and more) and select uplink sites -- on July 6th and 9th with two 2 hour long *live* programs scheduled for 14:00-16:00 EST on NASA-TV and PBS Telstar 402. (See earlier posting for Important Broadcast Information detailing the satellite coordinates and key info) PTK would like to poll this forum to find out if any of YOU will be in attendance at Planetfest or attending workshops at NASA JPL during the first weeks of July. If you are planning to be on hand, please send a note with your name, email address, and relevant contact and background info (your position, school, location). Please send this information to email@example.com and copy firstname.lastname@example.org For more details about Planetfest check out The Planetary Society's Web site.... http://planetary.org/hot-top-planetfest.html Jan Wee, moderator PS -- Thanks to Dr. Ken Edgett for sharing the Civilization article citation and for keeping our "ears" and "eyes" open in these final 21 days before the landing!
