Join Dr. Marc D. Rayman, chief engineer and mission director on NASA’s Dawn mission, to learn about the two largest unexplored worlds in the inner solar system.
The ambitious and exciting Dawn mission is one of NASA’s most remarkable ventures into the solar system. The spacecraft has recently completed an exploration of Vesta and is now traveling to Ceres; these were among the last uncharted worlds in the inner solar system prior to Dawn. The alien landscapes Dawn reveals provide humankind with a new perspective on the solar system.

Covers issues that parents have trouble with: school, home, friends, moral/spiritual
values, sex, drugs/alcohol, work, disrespect, house rules, etc.
No theories – No psycho-babble – No excuses; just proven, practical methods from
over 25 years of turning LA’s worst kids into polite, respectful, clean/sober, unsel-
fish, high-achieving hard-working kids…almost overnight. Lots of straight talk, but
equal amounts of laughter and tears to make it palatable. Parents will leave the
class with numerous steps to take immediately, to regain control of their children
and their homes.
