Event

TPR Presents: Saturn - Up Close & Personal
TPR Presents: Saturn - Up Close & Personal is a presentation reviewing the ten years of science from Cassini in the Saturn system. The event will take place on Friday, September 19th, at 7 p.m., at Holly Auditorium, located at 7703 Floyd Curl Dr., San Antonio, TX 78229.

Hunter Waite, Program Director of Mass Spectrometry in the Space Science Engineering Division at Southwest Research Institute, will review the significant discoveries from the ten years of the Cassini-Huygens mission. Special emphasis will be placed on the massive atmospheric storms in Saturn's atmosphere, the grandeur of the rings and their intricate interactive "dance." A segment on Saturn's moons includes the marvels of Titan's methane seas and the role they play in making Titan the best abiotic organic factory in the solar system, and the awe of the small moon Enceladus whose interior sea spews forth into a massive cryo-geyser that lets us study the chemistry of the sea within. Photographs and other visual representations complement the presentation and allow attendees to experience the magnificence of Saturn.

In addition, Peter Fox, M.D., Director of the Research Imaging Institute at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio will speak about the effects of high altitude on the brain. Dr. Fox is working with the United States Air Force on a project that images the brains of U2 pilots to determine why these highly trained, physically fit pilots can become severely confused at extremely high altitudes. The data gathered from this project have implications for NASA, as well as for the commercial airline industry.

TPR Presents" Saturn - Up Close & Personal is sponsored in part by TMI -- The Episcopal School of Texas and by the School of Science and Technology
