>accomplishments in a pair of free public lectures. The lectures
>will be held Thursday, Dec. 17, at JPL's von Karman Auditorium,
>and Friday, Dec. 18 at Pasadena City College's Forum, both at 7

> "The Galileo Europa Mission: Searching for What Lies Under
>Europa's Ice," is part of the monthly von Karman Lecture Series
>sponsored by JPL's Public Affairs Office. The lecture title
>refers to the prospect that a liquid ocean may lie beneath the
>icy crust of Jupiter's moon Europa. That fascinating premise has
>been supported by pictures and other data returned to Earth by
>Galileo.
>
> After Galileo's primary mission ended in December 1997, the
>spacecraft embarked on a two-year extended journey called the
>Galileo Europa Mission. In addition to the intriguing
>information about Europa's possible ocean, Galileo has gathered a
>wealth of data about Jupiter and its other moons, including
>Ganymede, Callisto and Io.
>
> Since joining JPL in 1975, Erickson has worked on the Viking
>mission to Mars, Voyager mission to the outer planets, and Mars
>Observer, and has been part of the Galileo team in development
>and operations for 19 years.
>
> More information about JPL's von Karman Lecture Series
>is available on the Internet at http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/lecture/,
>or by calling (818) 354-5011. JPL is a division of the
