Student Contest for Grades 5-12: Cassini Scientist for a Day

(Entries due: Sept. 30)

On Oct. 11, 2009, the Cassini spacecraft will take images of Saturn and its rings and moons for students. Students will study the three imaging target choices, decide which one they think will yield the best science results, and explain their choice in a 500-word essay. Winners and their classes will participate in a teleconference with Cassini scientists from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in October. The Fall 2009 imaging targets will be announced on Sept. 1, 2009.
