NEW “DISCOVERIES IN PLANETARY SCIENCE” CLASSROOM POWERPOINTS AVAILABLE

The DPS Education Subcommittee announces the 3rd release of “Discoveries in Planetary Science” Classroom Powerpoints, covering five new topics:

– Venus’ Active Volcanism
– Martian Glaciers
– Titan Lakes
– Explaining Iapetus
– Waterworld at 40 Lightyears?

These are succinct summaries of discoveries too recent to appear in “Intro Astronomy” college textbooks; each set consists of just three slides to be shown: the discovery itself, a basic explanation based on good planetary science, and the “big picture” context. Another page for further information is provided as well. Powerpoints and PDF’s can be downloaded from http://dps.aas.org/education/dpsdisc.
