To MARS with MER - Interact


Tuesday October 30, 2001
13:00-14:00 Eastern

LIVE FROM MARS 2001 originates live from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, where the spacecraft is managed for NASA by the California Institute of Technology. Just days after the Odyssey mission (named for Arthur C. Clarke's famous science fiction story and film) reaches Mars orbit (October 24), mission scientists and engineers take students behind the scenes for a live update on the spacecraft as it begins to lower itself down towards Mars to begin its science mission. Amazing images from the ongoing Mars Global Surveyor mission show new evidence for the existence of water on the planet, raising the continuing and tantalizing possibility of past life.

Web-based e-mail allows students from any location to send questions to the NASA researchers, and receive back answers in real time. Pre-taped segments show how to follow this and other NASA missions throughout the school year, including--courtesy of NASA, JPL and researchers at Arizona State University--opportunities for students to actually target some of Odyssey's science instruments and analyze results, working alongside Mars scientists!

Videotapes of the broadcasts can be ordered from PASSPORT TO KNOWLEDGE.
