In preparation for the 2004 landing of the Mars Exploration Rovers, NASA engineers and scientists tested their remote operation procedures using a rover called FIDO (field integrated design & operations rover). Our remote team traveled to the desert test site to see what they learned in the desert and what they hoped to learn on Mars. Join us from the front porch of the Exploratorium as we check out today's partial solar eclipse. Learn safe viewing practices, then go outside and watch for yourself! Exploratorium staff Ron Hipschman and Robyn Higdon sum up the last five days of spacewalks, and show a couple of good-bye conferences with the shuttle astronauts. The Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) was successfully installed. In preparation for the installation of the NICMOS Cooling System tomorrow, the astronauts also installed the Electronics Support Module. We also talk with Massimo Stiavelli, a scientist at the Space Telescope Science Institute about his involvement with the ACS and the future Wide Field Planetary Camera 3 (WFPC3) scheduled to be installed during the next servicing mission in 2004. Learn about the successful replacement of the Power Control Unit (PCU) and listen as we talk with Mark Clampin, part of the team that developed the Advanced Camera for Surveys scheduled for installation tonight. We learn about Hubble's new solar arrays, and Dr. Bruce Margon talks about the future of Hubble and about the Next Generation Telescope, which will eventually replace Hubble. In an exclusive taped interview, Hubble payload commander and astronaut John Grunsfeld discusses how astronauts who'll be servicing a telescope in space train in a giant pool at the Johnson Space Center. We'll also show an interview with space engineer Amy Ross, filmed in the space suit laboratory at Johnson. Fresh from the launch viewing area at Kennedy Space Center, Ron Hipschman shows images and recounts what it’s like to watch at shuttle launch from three miles away. We also preview the mission and the tasks the astronauts will be doing during their five planned space walks. Join the Origins team as they travel to Antarctica. We sent Mary, Noel, Paul, and Julie to explore scientific wonders from McMurdo to the Pole. Learn all about the extreme science being conducted at the South Pole in a daily dispatch from Terra Australis Incognita! Today from the South Pole, Mary Miller speaks to Kathryn Rollins, who will tell us about the AMANDA Neutrino Dectector.
