Student Scientists Have Their Day
Students from schools throughout the U.S. peppered a panel of top Cassini scientists with questions on Saturn and its rings and moons. Leading the panel, on Dec. 7, 2010, was Amanda Hendrix, Cassini deputy scientist. She was assisted by Kevin Baines, a JPL Principal Scientist with extensive experience in planetary exploration, and Rosaly Lopes, a world-famous planetary geologist and volcanologist.The event has been recorded, and is available on Ustream.
The 2009 edition of the Ustream event is also available on Ustream.
