PetraScape v.1.00

bulletDownload PetraScape v.1.00 here. Save it to your desktop. Once saved, double click on the icon to run the software. Be forewarned that last semester I had two reports of the beta version of PetraScape crashing student computers! Both of these happened on computers with less than 512MB RAM and 64MB of video RAM. Relatively high-end systems did not reported any problems. I highly recommend using the computers in in Grossmont's Tech Mall or Science Learning Center because I know that PetraScape runs OK on them. If you use your own  computer, make sure you have at least 512MB RAM and a 3D accelerated video card running at least Direct X 7  with 64MB or more dedicated video RAM. Good luck.

Mount St. Helens is Erupting! Well, sort of..... actually it is building a new volcanic dome, which is about as tame as eruptions get, but you can watch it happen in near real time (5 minute updates) on the VolcanoCam.
