Thanks to Sandy for posting the newsbrief that happened this morning from 10:00 to 11:00 AM PST. It was absolutely great. I used the overhead to write down the main points and the science kids took notes. We discussed the most important discoveries: that Mars has a core, mantle and crust and that there is overwhelming evidence that Mars had a warmer and wetter past. Finding sand grains was very exciting as sand requires weathering. They stated that Sojourner was a GREAT observer and field geologist and takes great picturer. The photos they shared with us were absolutely great! I wish I had recorded it. If anyone hears that they are reshowing it, I would love to know. My students had met Dr.Greg Wilson down at Ames Research Center last spring as he was doing experiments using wind tunnels to simulate conditions on Mars. They were VERY excited to hear him talk at today's newsbrief. As we are beginning Weather Worlds it was great to hear and see the current Weather Report and I think what was most fun was to see the forecast for tomorrow's weather. It was a very informative and visual update and I am so glad that we knew about it and were able to watch it. Ginny and 6/7 grade science class at Hydesville School, Ca.
