Program

JOHN VIERTHALER introduced Dr. Michael B. Duke who is the Director of the Space Research Center at the School of Mines in Golden.  Dr. Duke’s team of scientists was selected to plan a robotic lunar mission to the south pole Aiken basis on the back side of the moon.   This is an area that experienced a major meteor impact that caused sub-surface material to be brought to the surface of the moon.  The analysis of this material will help determine the age of this basin and may shed light on the history of early collisions on the inner planets of our solar system.   Data created by this mission may also help answer the questions concerning the origin of life - did it occur naturally or was it affected by by celestial collisions.  
Dr Duke’s team is in competition with another group which is planning a Jupiter mission.  The winner will be chosen in April 2005.   Should the Duke team win, usable data will not be obtained until 2010.

    Positive initiative

A smile will give you something to smile about. Just try it and see. Offer an encouraging word and suddenly you'll have a reason to be encouraged.  It works every time.

Be positive and you'll have something to be positive about. Rather than waiting and hoping that something good will come along, be the something good that comes along.

You always have the ability and the opportunity to change the world for the better in your own special way. Every moment that goes by is a moment you can use to move positively forward, when you choose to do so.

If the day seems too dark, fill it with the light of your love and laughter. If life seems too discouraging, give to it your positive energy.

The situation is always ripe for someone to step forward with a positive initiative. Be that someone, right here, right now, and see how great it can be.
