NASA Educational Workshops Aerospace Educators Share-A-Thons are scheduled at each of the NSTA Area Conventions this fall, and at the National NCTM, ITEA, NCASE, and NSTA conferences in the spring. This is an opportunity to exchange an activity, materials, and/or ideas you have developed for your students as a result of your experience at the NASA Educational Workshops. Sign up to present at a Share-A-Thon by sending Christina Gorski an email to cgorski@nsta.org or a fax at (703) 522-5413 with your intentions: which convention(s), title/short description of what you plan to share, your name, school, address, fax, email, and the year and NEW workshop site you attended. Be sure to send us a copy of your handout(s).

Jupiter Images

Jupiter's famous Great Red Spot, a storm as wide as two Earths and more than 300 years old, interrupts the pattern of horizontal stripes on Jupiter in a new color image of the planet from NASA's Cassini spacecraft. The image was taken from a distance of about 78 million kilometers (48 million miles) on Oct. 8. A related panel of three images displays the same side of Jupiter in three different wavelengths, including ultraviolet and infrared views that show features not seen in visible light. The images are available from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., at http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/pictures/jupiter/

Water on the Space Station

Rationing and recycling will be an essential part of life on the newly-populated International Space Station. In this article, the first of a series about the challenges of living in orbit, Science@NASA explores where the crew will get their water and how they will (re)use it.
