AUGUST 5 CHAT WITH NATHAN BRIDGES, PLANETARY GEOLOGIST

Wednesday, August 5, 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time: Nathan Bridges, planetary
geologist: Since late September, 1997, when the Mars team stopped hearing
from Pathfinder, virtually all of Nathan's time has been spent analyzing the
large amount of images and other data collected by the Mars rover. Nathan's
primary areas of study are understanding the chemical makeup of the rocks
and soil, and the effects of wind on the surface. Nathan continues to study
Mars data, and will soon have results of his investigations published in a
scientific journal. Please read Nathan's autobiography prior to joining this
chat: http://quest.arc.nasa.gov/mars/team/bridges.html

Beginning July 22, you can register for this chat at:

SPREAD THE WORD AND GET A NASA PARTY PACK

We at Quest have a problem, and we would like your assistance.  We have a
reasonably good website, but not enough people know about it.  We would
like to inform people of our existence, so that they may take advantage of
the materials we offer.  We were hoping that you might be able to help us
out in this area.

Basically, we have assembled some packs of cool posters and
information, and we would be willing to give one of these "party packs" to
anyone who helps us spread the word.  Such help would consist of the
following:
  * Getting a local newspaper to publish an article about Quest.
  * Getting five or more people to join the Quest mailing list (which they
    can do by sending a message to listmanager@quest.arc.nasa.gov and
    writing   subscribe sharing-nasa   in the message text).
  * Doing a presentation about Quest at a local teacher conference.
  * Any other useful activity that spreads the word about Quest. Let us know
    what ideas you think of.

Please consider helping us get the word out.  If you do so, please tell us
so we can send you signs of our gratitude.

If you need information to help you spread the word (such as the above info
on how to join the mailing list), feel free to send me a note with your
question.  Furthermore, if you need flyers to pass out for a presentation or
whatever, you can Email me and I will send you some.
