The Strange Attraction of Gale Crater

 

Written by Dauna Coulter
Science@NASA

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – Curiosity is about to go to Mars.  The car-sized rover, also known as the Mars Science Lab, is scheduled for launch in late November or early December 2011 from the Kennedy Space Center.  After an eight-month voyage to Mars, Curiosity will land at the foot of a 3 mile high mountain in a crater named “Gale.”

It sounds a little odd—a mountain in the middle of an impact crater. Wouldn’t the impact have smashed it flat? Some scientists believe the 96 mile wide crater filled in with sediments over time and relentless Martian winds carved a mountain in the center, where it now stands nearly three times higher than the Grand Canyon is deep.

Isaac VanMeter embodies it. It is more than just the Henderson, KY, native playing college football for the first time at Austin Peay at age 32, an age most male involvement in such a physical sport is reserved to the Fantasy variety.

VanMeter also is an exception in being a fulltime college student for the first time at a point in many men’s lives they already are taking out a second mortgage on their house.
