Center in League City, Texas.

On Tuesday afternoon, preliminary results from the current Mars Odyssey

recent Deep Space One flyby of comet Borrelly, which provided the highest
resolution data yet obtained of a cometary nucleus. Additional results from
the NEAR-Shoemaker mission to the asteroid Eros also will be presented
Wednesday afternoon. Thursday afternoon features new results on Martian
meteorites, while Friday morning highlights the continuing debate on
evidence for life in Martian meteorite ALH84001.
