Our prices are based on the prevailing fuel rates at the time of the brochure publication, which is well in advance of departure. While we will do everything possible to maintain our prices, if fuel prices increase significantly at or before the time of the voyage, it may be necessary to institute a fuel surcharge.

This morning we visit the Richard F. Caris Mirror Laboratory at the University of Arizona, where a team of scientists and engineers is creating giant lightweight mirrors for a new generation of optical telescopes. These are not the conventional solid-glass mirrors of the past. The borosilicate glass is melted and spun-cast in a custom-designed rotating oven to yield a unique honeycomb structure that can be larger and lighter than traditional solid-glass mirrors.

Steven Squyres' research focuses on the large solid bodies of the solar system: His work involves analysis of data from both spacecraft and ground-based telescopes, as well as a variety of types of geophysical modeling. Areas of particular interest include the tectonics of Venus, the history of water on Mars, and the geophysics of the icy satellites of the outer planets. Data analysis and theory are used together to examine the processes that have shaped the surfaces and interiors of these bodies.

Squyres has participated in a number of planetary spaceflight missions.

From to he was an associate of the Voyager imaging science team, participating in analysis of imaging data from the encounters with Jupiter and Saturn. Peter Smith graduated in from the University of California Berkeley in physics and later continued his education at the University of Arizona Optical Sciences Center graduating with a master's degree in During this period, Smith participated in many of the seminal space missions that have explored the solar system.

During the Pioneer Venus mission in , Smith created models of the energy sources that heat the surface of Venus to nearly degrees. Pioneer Saturn, in , initiated nearly a decade of study of outer-planet atmospheres, particularly for Jupiter and Titan. Mysterious, cloud-enshrouded Titan became the focus for Smith's research which led to observations and mapping of the solid surface of Titan, Saturn's largest moon, using the Hubble Space Telescope in Martin Tomasko, Smith became the Project Manager for a descent camera for the Huygens mission to the surface of Titan that landed in early and returned the first close-up images of Titan's surface.

As the first lander to reach Mars since the two Viking missions in , there was tremendous public interest as the camera returned the first images from the Martian surface on July 4, Day-by-day images of the alien landscape explored by the Sojourner Rover were featured on the front pages of newspapers and on the TV news networks.

Since then Smith has built cameras for the Mars Polar Lander mission that crashed on the Martian surface in December Later, the Surveyor mission was cancelled because of the loss of Mars Polar Lander, grounding more UA-built cameras. Despite these setbacks, Smith has continued to associate with Mars missions and is serving on the science team for the Mars Exploration Rovers that landed in January He also helped build the microscope for Beagle 2, a European lander that failed to return data upon its arrival to Mars in December In fall , after one and a half years of proposal development, Smith's Phoenix project was selected as the first Scout mission to Mars after a competitive NASA selection process.

The spacecraft launched August 4, , and will land in the northern polar region of Mars on May 25, The lander will conduct science experiments for 3 to 5 months as part of NASA's search for life in our solar system. The Phoenix name recalls the mythological bird that rises from the ashes of his predecessor.

The Phoenix mission uses the mothballed lander with instruments delivered for both that mission and the failed Polar Lander mission. Chris received his Ph.

His current research focuses on the evolution of the solar system and the origin of life. He is also actively involved in planning for future Mars missions including human exploration. Chris been involved in research in Mars-like environments on Earth, traveling to the Antarctic dry valleys, Siberia, the Canadian Arctic, and the Atacama desert to study life in these Mars-like environments. Co-Investigator - Responsible for the overall management of Investigation 6 — Planetary Pioneers, and participate in efforts to identify new model organisms, do the initial tests for UV and desiccation resistance, and mechanisms of resistance.

He was responsible for conceiving and developing the x-ray fluorescence spectrometers used for geochemical analyses of Martian soil samples onboard the Viking landers. He has introduced the concept of key roles for cometary particulates and formation of comet ponds as an enabling step for the abiotic origin of life.
