    First Light Newsletter - January 2004

    New Year Launches a Busy Space Year

    NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory is gearing up for an exciting and busy new year. If all
    goes as planned, a comet encounter, two Mars landings and arrival at Saturn are some of
    the challenging activities on the 2004 calendar for JPL spacecraft. Also watch for
    revealing images of the universe and new insights into Earth's climate, environment and
    geologic systems.
    Stay tuned!

    STARDUST: On Jan. 2 the Stardust spacecraft will fly through the cloud of dust and gas
    surrounding comet Wild 2, collect particles and return them to Earth in 2006.

    MARS EXPLORATION ROVERS: On Jan. 3 and Jan. 24, twin rovers will touch down at separate
    locations on Mars to search for signs of liquid water activity in Mars' distant past.
