NSS TO PROVIDE COVERAGE OF MARS LANDING

Washington, DC Dec. 3, 1999- The National Space Society, in association with Starport.com, will provide web visitors with continuous coverage of the NASA Mars Polar Lander mission beginning today, NSS Executive Director Pat Dasch announced.

"It promises to be both an important scientific mission as well as an exciting one," she added. NSS will also bring visitors official NASA press kits, mission plans, and graphics to better understand the Polar Lander's mission.
