      MAJOR MARS DISCOVERY TO BE ANNOUNCED AT DEC. 7 SCIENCE BRIEFING

      Imaging scientists Dr. Michael Malin and Dr. Ken Edgett from
      NASA's Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft will present what they
      describe as their most significant discovery yet at a Space
      Science Update at 2:00 p.m. EST on Thursday, Dec. 7. Their
      findings are being published in the December 8 issue of Science
      Magazine.

      This science update will be held in the James E. Webb Auditorium
      at NASA Headquarters, 300 E St., S.W., Washington, DC, and will be
      carried live on Telstar 5, transponder 11. The Ku-band satellite
      is located 97 degrees West longitude with a downlink frequency of
      11929 MHz, vertical polarity.

      Please note that, due to coverage of the ongoing Shuttle mission,
      NASA Television does not expect to carry this briefing, and two-
      way question-and-answer capability from agency centers will not be
      available.

      Participants will be:
      * Dr. Ed Weiler, Associate Administrator for Space Science, NASA
      Headquarters, Washington, DC., will be panel moderator.
      * Dr. Michael Malin principal investigator, Mars Orbiter Camera on
      NASA's Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft at Malin Space Science
      Systems (MSSS), San Diego, CA.
      * Dr. Ken Edgett, staff scientist at MSSS.
      * Dr. Jim Garvin, Mars Exploration Program Scientist at NASA
      Headquarters.
      * Dr. Ken Nealson, director of the Center for Life Detection at
      NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, CA.
