Deadlines! Deadlines! Deadlines!

Brief Description: Remember the Shoemaker-Levy Comet Impacts on Jupiter last Summer? Something new is about to plunge into the atmosphere of this giant planet... only this time it is an object made by humans! On December the 7th, 1995, a probe released by Galileo in July will drop into the Jovian skies and begin its descent of discovery. Meanwhile, the Galileo spacecraft will start a two-year mission to map the moons, monitor the atmosphere, and examine the magnetic field of our Solar System's largest planet.

At the same time, work continues at a feverish pace to prepare two missions to Mars that will launch in November and December 1996-- Mars Global Surveyor and Mars Pathfinder. Both of these missions have Arizona connections. The sixth biannual Arizona Mars K-12 Educators' Workshop will include insider views of how we are preparing these Mars missions. The workshop will include a three-hour session on the Jupiter system and Galileo mission, information about Mars geology and climate, plus presentations by K-12 educators on themes of Mars, Jupiter, and Solar System exploration.

Before registering, please be sure to read "August 1995 Teacher Workshop at ASU to Feature The Planets Mars and Jupiter" for More Information. Please Share this information with K-12 Education Colleagues.

To Register, make a copy of this Form and send it by snailmail or fax.
