      MARS MISSION UPDATE VIA WEBCAST

      Mars scientists from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory,
      Pasadena, Calif., will give the latest report about the 2001
      Mars Odyssey mission, now en route to the mysterious red
      planet, in a webcast available for viewing starting June 7,
      2001 at 11 a.m. Pacific Time.

      JPL scientist Dr. Claudia Alexander will host the
      webcast, which will feature answers to questions submitted in
      advance, along with interesting images and cool animations of
      Mars.

      Dr. Roger Gibbs, the 2001 Odyssey Mars spacecraft
      manager, will answer questions on the mission's progress and
      how the spacecraft will perform 'aerobraking' in the Martian
      atmosphere. Dr. Jeff Plaut, the mission's deputy project
      scientist, will talk about the science the team hopes to
      accomplish while Odyssey orbits Mars.
