STUDENTS PRESENT JUPITER RESULTS IN LIVE TELECAST AND WEBCAST

     A few of the 2,300 girls and boys from 13 states who used
a huge remote-control telescope to measure energy from
Jupiter's radiation belts during this school year will present
their results to NASA scientists Friday during a live telecast
and webcast from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena,
Calif.

     The one-hour webcast will begin at 2 p.m. PDT (5 p.m. on
the East Coast) at the Internet address

     http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/webcast/jupiterkids .

     The event, including comments from U.S. Rep. Jerry Lewis
(Redlands, Calif.) and NASA Administrator Dan Goldin by
satellite link from Washington, D.C., will also be broadcast
live on NASA Television. Information about NASA TV is
available at http://www.nasa.gov/ntv/ .

     The students' measurements are useful in the
interpretation of radio measurements that NASA's Cassini
spacecraft made when it flew near Jupiter four months ago. The
students used a radio telescope at the Goldstone Complex of
JPL's Deep Space Network, near Barstow, Calif. They controlled
it from computers in their middle-school and high-school
classrooms through coordination by the Lewis Center for
Educational Research, Apple Valley, Calif.

     JPL, a division of the California Institute of
Technology, Pasadena, manages Galileo and Cassini for the NASA
Office of Space Science, Washington, D.C.
