Dr Dee Dee Dynamo’s Saturn Surprise Published
(FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE–February 25, 2015–Boston, MA) – Boston-based surgeon and author Dr. Oneeka Williams has announced the publication of her new children’s book Dr. Dee Dee Dynamo’s Saturn Surprise, the third book in her Dr. Dee Dee Dynamo Book Series.
DR. DEE DEE DYNAMO–GIRL SUPER HERO– Born with supernatural powers from electrical energy, 9-year old girl Super Surgeon, Dr. Dee Dee Dynamo, jets around the Universe from her home base on the Island of Positivity fixing problems with her gifted hands. While visiting the local Planetarium one day, Gordon the Gullible Globe sounds the alarm that Saturn’s rings have disappeared. Dr. Dee Dee is skeptical but mobilizes her team of assistants and surgical instruments on an intriguing and SURPRISING mission to Saturn. The rings are literally revolting when she arrives and Saturn is distressed and overwhelmed by the uprising and the continued scrutiny of the Cassini-Huygens Spacecraft! ‘Hot off the press’ science information is shared as Dr. Dee Dee negotiates with the rings, moves and grooves to the ‘Do the Saturn Dance’ and surgically reconstructs the rings!
SATURN IN THE NEWS– THE CASSINI MISSION–Scientists have been discussing a possible new moon forming around the planet Saturn. This moon, which they named “Peggy”, was spotted in images taken by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft in April 2013. However, two months ago, at a presentation at the American Geophysical Union meeting, Cornell University’s Matthew Tiscareno revealed that Peggy had probably broken apart, with images showing not just one moon-betraying smear in the rings, but two. In fact, “instead of catching a moon in the act of forming, scientists may have glimpsed a moon in the act of dying.” (National Geographic, The Sad Story of Peggy, Saturn’s Newest Moon, Jan. 27, 2015)
