***************************** JUPITER'S MOON IO: A FLASHBACK TO EARTH'S VOLCANIC PAST Jupiter's fiery moon Io is providing scientists with a window on volcanic activity and colossal lava flows similar to those that raged on Earth eons ago, thanks to new pictures and data gathered by NASA's Galileo spacecraft. The sharp images of Io were taken on Oct. 11 during the closest-ever spacecraft flyby of the moon, when Galileo dipped to just 380 miles (611 kilometers) above Io's surface. The new data reveal that Io, the most volcanic body in the solar system, is even more active than previously suspected, with more than 100 erupting volcanoes.

The images cover a period from November 15-18 and were captured by the NOAA/National Weather Service's Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES)-8. The video was enhanced and rendered at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Laboratory for Atmospheres.

ITEM 2a - VOLCANIC IO--------------------------------------TRT :53 Images of the Prometheus volcano on Jupiter¹s moon Io reveal two hot spots and a volcanic caldera, or crater, seven times larger than Hawaii¹s Kilauea caldera. By studying Io, scientists hope to learn more about the geological processes that shaped Earth, Mars and other planets. ITEM 2b - B-ROLL: FOOTAGE OF HAWAIIAN KILAUEA CALDERA-----TRT 1:29 ITEM 2c - ANIMATION OF GALILEO-----------------------------TRT :53 NASA¹s Galileo spacecraft flew by Jupiter¹s moon Io on October 10, 1999, at a distance of about 15,000 km or 9,400 miles. Images of Io were taken by the Near-Infrared Mapping Spectrometer (NIMS) onboard the spacecraft.

ITEM 3 - SCIENTISTS STUDY ARCTIC OZONE IN SOLVE CAMPAIGN (replay) - ARC, LARC, DFRC Contact at NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, CA: John Bluck (Phone 650/604-5026). Contact at NASA Headquarters, Washington, DC: David E. Steitz (Phone 202/358-1730). ITEM 3a - EXAMINING ARCTIC OZONE--------------------------TRT 1:38 NASA scientists are joining researchers from Europe, Russia, Canada and Japan to mount the largest field-measurement campaign ever to assess ozone amounts and changes in the Arctic upper atmosphere this winter. This collaborative campaign will measure ozone and other atmospheric gases using satellites, airplanes, heavy-lift and small balloons, and ground-based instruments. From November 1999 through March 2000, researchers will examine the processes that control ozone amounts during the Arctic winter at mid to high latitudes.

ITEM 3b - ER-2 AIRCRAFT------------------------------------TRT :52 B-roll: ER-2 aircraft being prepped at NASA Ames; pilot getting onboard; takeoff. ITEM 3c - INTERVIEW---------------------------------------TRT 1:11 Dr. Michael Kurylo, Manager, Upper Atmosphere Research Program at NASA Headquarters, Washington, DC ITEM 3d - INTERVIEW---------------------------------------TRT :29 Dr. Phil DeCola, Program Manager, Upper Atmosphere Research Program at NASA Headquarters, Washington, DC ITEM 3e - INTERVIEW---------------------------------------TRT :40 Katja Drdla, Principal Investigator, SOLVE campaign, NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, CA ITEM 3e - INTERVIEW--------------------------------------TRT 1:01 *Chip Trepte, Atmospheric Scientist, NASA Langley Research Center, Hampton, VA.
