Dear James,  (and all)

third program "Touchdown" be aired on NASA TV so I can record it?  
I recorded the other 2 programs already.

Glad to have you with us, James! And all others new to the 
Live From Mars project!

Due to the fact that the July 1997 summer Live From Mars programs do not
fit the "usual" ONE hour formula for the NASA-TV education file,
NASA-TV will not be re-broadcasting the programs at this time
or in the near future.

        The two summer broadcasts, "Touchdown" and "Touchdown
        + 6" aired live July 6th and 9th and were TWO HOURS
        long and aired on NASA-TV and PBS on those dates.  

If you go to the Live From Mars web site and select LIVE
VIDEO or go directly to:

you will find an overview of the programs and a script with
detailed content information.

PTK has made the programs available on videotape for a cost
of $35.00 per two hour program for those in the US only! This
price includes shipping and handling!  

VHS videotapes of the Live From Mars programming can be ordered direct 
from Passport to Knowledge. All tapes are NTSC, with educational 
non-broadcast rights for life of tape. 

How To Order:
Mail a check, money order, or purchase order payable to 
Passport to Knowledge, or fax to 973-656-9813. Sorry, 
no credit card orders.  Clearly indicate the program title(s)
you are ordering.

One last thought.... It is possible that your NASA Teacher Resource Center 
serving your area may have recorded the programs and can make them 
available to you.  Check with them. If you do not know which 
TRC to contact, access this URL for a list of NASA TRC's.

Hope this information helps!
