I'm looking for specific and reliable links for information on missions. I would like to know more about missions that involve the moons specifically indicated in the rules. This has been my weakest area in this event so far, and I would really like to improve my knowledge on it. Thanks in advance.
Go to the JPL site and search the name of the mission you are looking for. There will usually be links about instruments, timelines, etc.

To browse missions, select the mission tab on the JPL site, and select ALL.

we just had our first invitationals today, but one fo the questions on the test was " where are there equatorial glaciers on earth?" this made me really confused, so i put there are none, but i need a little bit of help here... ?
I think we used your test for an invitational in Tennessee! The test was from some invitational in California, and I remember that question. That question is out of place.

So, I've never done this event before, and I am REALLY confused as to what I'm supposed to do, I used the Wiki but I still don't really know what to do. Could somebody please post a website or help me out a bit?

Hate to break it to you, but the wiki won't help you for this year's rules. Start with Wikipedia and Google and go from there. Your coach should have the rules for this year.

This would be a cue for someone to update the wiki.

I work on state wikis. I have no idea what to do with event wikis.

Just throw information on there. If it needs cleaning up people will do that, but what it needs most is content.

Double post, but this is important:http://www.nasa.gov/press/2014/april/na ... z30Qcc1zkV

I'll just say that if I was writing any more tests this year (which I'm not) I'd definitely include a section on this.
