To MARS with MER - Interact

TOUCHDOWN + 6! program script - part 2 of 2


33. MARVELOUS MARS #2 / VTR (00:30) ET 00:32
Earth and Mars, same and different.

34. CAMILLE WELCOME BACK / LIVE (00:30) ET 01:02
We've got sites all across the US and as you'll soon see, around the world, "watching" via the Internet, but it's all happening out at JPL and -- via JPL -- on Mars! So, off to the source! David?

***ALLCON: THIS WAS WRITTEN BEFORE THEY MOVED THE PRESS CON. TIME. SO THIS WILL BE REVISED. STILL THERE WILL BE A JPL RE-INTRO HERE***

35. PRESS CONFERENCE / LIVE (01:00) ET 02:32
Seidel back of room, whispers, latest release (MUST HAVE PIX!), move off to see speakers -- notes who was on show 3A, who is to come on LFM 3B if all goes well.

SEIDEL:
DAVID SEIDEL HERE, IN THE VON KARMAN AUDITORIUM AT NASA'S JPL! I'M WHISPERING SINCE I'M AT THE BACK OF TODAY'S PRESS CONFERENCE. IT'S BEEN GOING STRONG FOR ABOUT (CHECK) MINUTES. IT'S FEATURING IMAGES OF (CHECK) AND (CHECK). SCIENTISTS (CHECK) AND (CHECK) HAVE JUST BEEN SAYING (CHECK, CHECK, CHECK.)

WE HOPE TO BRING YOU MORE OF THESE AMAZING IMAGES! BUT THERE'S A VERY INTERESTING ISSUE CONCERNING TIME ON EARTH AND MARS! CAMILLE AND NEIL, CAN YOU PLEASE STRAIGHTEN IT OUT FOR US.

36. "LIVE" / TIME, ETC. / LIVE (01:00) ET 03:32

CAMILLE:

STICK WITH US, AND ALL WILL BE CLEAR

Graphic read-on: AMNH image?
IT'S NOW THREE O'CLOCK IN NEW YORK, AND -- OF COURSE -- IN WHEELING AND BALTIMORE, EASTERN TIME.

New frame: HMNS
IN HOUSTON, TEXAS, IT'S 2:00 PM CENTRAL TIME.

New frame: the Mall at JPL, or press room IN >MOST< PARTS OF PASADENA, CALIFORNIA, IT'S 12:00 NOON, PACIFIC TIME.

New frame: MPF mission control (with super?) BUT IN CERTAIN PARTS OF JPL, THOUGH PHYSICALLY SITUATED IN PASADENA, IT'S THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT >MARS TIME< THAT IS.

Live shot: almost empty
YOU SEE THE MEN AND WOMEN OF PATHFINDER ARE OPERATING ALMOST AS IF ON MARS.

WHEN IT'S NOON IN PASADENA, IT'S 2:00 A.M. AT SAGAN MEMORIAL STATION, THE PATHFINDER LANDER SITE ON MARS. IT'S NIGHT, IT'S DARK, AND THERE'S NO SOLAR ENERGY TO POWER SOJOURNER OR THE LANDER.

THAT'S WHY PATHFINDER MISSION CONTROL IS ALMOST EMPTY. THE HUMAN "MARS TEAM" IS ASLEEP OR JUST COMING ON DUTY, JUST LIKE ITS ROBOT COUNTERPARTS ON MARS.

MPS science area, bustling and hustling BUT THIS IS HOW IT LOOKED HALF A DAY EARLIER WHEN THE REST OF THE COUNTRY WAS ASLEEP.

Cut to Neil

NEIL:
THE TIME DIFFERENCE NOT ONLY AFFECTS THE MISSION BUT ALSO THE WAY YOU GET TO SEE PICTURES ONLINE AND DURING OUR LIVE TV PROGRAMS. LIKE THE MISSION TEAM, AT THIS MOMENT, SOJOURNER AND THE LANDER ARE ALSO SLEEPING. THIS MEANS NO LIVE PICTURES ARE BEING RECEIVED AT THIS VERY MOMENT. IN FACT NORTH AMERICA IS BELOW MARS HORIZON, AS SEEN FROM SAGAN STATION.

BUT DOWN HERE ON EARTH AND 'ROUND THE CLOCK, THE IMAGE PROCESSING LAB IS WORKING. EACH MORNING, CALIFORNIA TIME, NEW PICTURES ARE RELEASED FOR THE FIRST TIME ON >THIS< PLANET. THAT'S WHY WE THINK IT'S STILL OK TO CALL OUR PROGRAM "LIVE FROM MARS" BECAUSE YOU AND WE ARE AMONG THE VERY FIRST TO SEE THE LATEST IMAGES.

37. SOJOURNER'S TRAVELS / VTR (01:00) ET 04:32
Camille VO animation: brief summary of what was supposed to happen the first rover on another planet

CHAPTER HEAD: ROAMING ROUND MARS: THE PLAN WELL WHEN SOJOURNER'S NOT SLEEPING, THIS IS WHAT WAS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN.

THE ROVER WOULD ROLL DOWN ITS RAMP, ROLL AT (CHECK) CENTIMETERS PER SECOND OVER TO A NEARBY ROCK, AND BEGIN TO SNIFF IT, OFTEN OVERNIGHT, FOR 10 HOURS AT A TIME.

THAT'S WHAT WAS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN AND, EVERYONE IS PLEASED TO SAY, IT PRETTY MUCH WENT EXACTLY AS PLANNED.

38. SOJOURNER'S FIRST DAYS / VTR & LIVE (04:00) ET 08:32

CHAPTER HEAD: ROAMING ROUND MARS: FOR REAL SEIDEL and DONNA narrate scenes from Sojourner's time on the surface. Video, stills, animation, etc. inc. APXS, including preliminary science results. Just as in the previous sequences, we use the very best images from the actual rover travels round Mars.

DONNA ad libs over the Rover footage

WELL AS YOU'D EXPECT, GIVEN THE TRAVELS OF SOJOURNER, ONE OF THE BUSIEST PEOPLE AT JPL THESE PAST FEW DAYS HAS BEEN THE PRIMARY ROVER DRIVER, BRIAN COOPER HIS SHIFT NOW RUNS FROM 10 PM TO 6:00 AM PACIFIC TIME SO WE HOPE HE'S RESTING UP FOR THE RIST-RED ROAD JUST NOW.

BUT HE'S CERTAINLY ONE OF THE "PATHFINDER PEOPLE" WE WANTED YOU TO MEET.

THERE'S ANOTHER ACTIVITY YOU CAN CHECK OUT VIA THE WEB, AND THEN PARTICIPATE IN ONLINE

SPONSORED BY THE PLANETARY SOCIETY, "RED ROVER RED ROVER" INVITES STUDENTS TO BUILD ROBOTS OUT OF LEGOS AND THEN CONTROL THEM OVER THE INTERNET. STUDENTS LIKE THESE IN CALIFORNIA WERE ABLE TO DRIVE ROVERS IN UTAH AND VICE VERSA. YOU EXPERIENCE THE NEED FOR PRECISION AND TEAMWORK, THE PERILS OF LONG DISTANCE COMMUNICATION AND TIME DELAY.

CHECK OUT (GIVE URL)

CAMILLE:
THE PLANETARY SOCIETY AND OTHER GROUPS LIKE PASSPORT TO KNOWLEDGE HAVE BIG PLANS AND HIGH HOPES FOR THE FUTURE. PERHAPS SOME DAY STUDENTS WILL REACH OUT VIA THE NET TO CONTROL ROVERS ON THE MOON AND EVEN MARS AND HOW ABOUT SUBMERSIBLE HYDROBOTS UNDER THE ICE OF EUROPA

(NYC crowd wows)

OK, SASHA, ONE LAST E-MAIL QUESTION

SASHA

DONNA responds

CAMILLE
DONNA, THANKS A BUNCH FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT THROUGHOUT LIVE FROM MARS HOPE TO SEE YOU IN THE NEXT SCHOOL YEAR, WHEN WE HAVE 2 MORE VIDEOS AIRING ON PBS AND NASA-TV! BYE!!!

***CHANGE SATELLITE TO HOUSTON***

45. CAMILLE LEADS TO "PEOPLE" / LIVE (00:30) ET 26:47

IT TAKES MORE THAN ROBOTS TO MAKE A MISSION FLY AND THE MEMBERS OF THE HUMAN TEAM SPEND SO MUCH TIME AND ENERGY ON A PROJECT LIKE THIS THAT THEY BECOME A KIND OF FAMILY.

AND PATHFINDER'S NEIGHBORS AND COLLEAGUES AT JPL THE PEOPLE WORKING ON MARS GLOBAL SURVEYOR, DUE TO ARRIVE AT MARS IN SEPTEMBER, SHARE HOPES, HARD WORK, AND THE HIGHS OF ACHIEVING WHAT PRESIDENT KENNEDY CALLED THINGS WORTH DOING, NOT BECAUSE THEY WERE EASY, BUT BECAUSE THEY WERE HARD.

HERE'S PATHFINDER MISSION MANAGER RICHARD COOK WHO'S GOT TWO FAMILIES INVOLVED IN THE MISSION!

Camille smiles as if this is Oprah or Sally: YOU'LL SEE WHAT WE MEAN!?!

50. CAMILLE LEAD TO HMNS #3 (00:30) ET 39:17

***AS SUGGESTED BY CAROLYN, TWO SEQUENCES ARE SMOOSHED TOGETHER: themes are analyzing rocks, and looking for signs of life: NOTE -- 2 SEQUENCES, BUT NO MORE TIME!!!***
51. HMNS MISSION #3 / LIVE & VTR (02:30) ET 41:47
as before, we join the Mars mission in progress

location: Glovebox lab :

Janel introduces kids handling (weighing, measuring) meteorites, rocks and minerals. Tom holds rocks and minerals that could be found on Mars

close-ups of rocks and minerals -- Tom is a geologist. He explains the kinds of rocks we expect on Mars and explains how exciting it is to touch another world. Tom also explains the advantages of having humans in the loop when you're looking for interesting rocks.

TESTING FOR LIFE
Janel explains that astronauts at this station continually monitor the life support functions of the spaceship -- checking air, water, and power supplies. And in this mission they are also equipped to test soils for signs of life.

Tom explains that adding moisture can trigger a reaction that might indicate the presence of microbes in the soil. Kids add water to three clear glasses with soil in them: one does nothing, one bubbles and then stops, one continues to bubble and get milky. Tom explains that the effect which stops is probably a chemical change, but the effect that continues could indicate the presence of life in the soil. Tom says that the crew will make many tests like this with real soil before they land on Mars.

52. NEIL & CAMILLE LEAD TO COTF / LIVE (00:30) ET 41:47

NEIL:
THANKS, ANTARES TOM'S BASE ON EARTH IS THE JOHNSON SPACE CENTER AND ONE SIGNIFICANT DEVELOPMENT THIS YEAR IS THE FIRST-EVER AGREEMENT FOR THE HUMAN EXPLORERS IN HOUSTON AND THE ROBOT EMISSARIES FROM JPL TO WORK TOGETHER TO PREPARE FOR HUMAN MISSIONS TO MARS

CAMILLE:
GETTING THERE WILL REQUIRE SKILLS IN SPACE CONSTRUCTION -- AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW KINDS OF TEAMWORK. CLASSROOM OF THE FUTURE -- AS YOU'D EXPECT -- IS ONE PLACE WHERE SUCH FUTURE SKILLS ARE BEING GROWN IN SOME MOST UNUSUAL WAYS!

AND WHAT MORE APPROPRIATE WAY TO END OUR ELECTRONIC FIELD TRIP THAN TO LAND HUMANS ON MARS???

AS CARL SAGAN, THE ASTRONOMER AND AUTHOR FOR WHOM PATHFINDER HAS BEEN RE-NAMED, ONCE WROTE: DREAMS ARE MAPS^ AND CENTURIES OF DREAMS AND 21ST CENTURY HIGH TECHNOLOGY WILL -- WITHIN THE LIFETIME OF MANY OF YOU WATCHING -- TAKE HUMANS TO MARS

62. HMNS MISSION #5 / LIVE (03:00) ET 60:17
HMNS mission lands on Mars, (VTR) after sending off probe to Phobos on the way "down" successful end to this mission!

location: Mission Commander console with crews all at stations. Janel shows that all the crew equipment is stowed and everyone is ready for landing. Tom indicates that are about to land on the oldest region of Mars -- an ancient water carved feature called Dao Vallis, where they might find signs of life. Tom says that as a scientist, he is now turning the mission over to a test pilot, the mission commander, Gene Cernan, who will control the landing on Mars.

B-roll: TCR 14:36 - 15:40 (B-roll with audio) -- 64 sec

Come back to everyone in space station clapping with surface of Mars on screens behind Janel and Tom. Tom says farewell and indicates that Pathfinder is the first step to making this dream mission a reality.
