Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Earlier this semester, Austin Peay State University’s Department of Languages and Literature released the first print edition of Polifonía, a Spanish language scholarly journal that caters to Hispanic literature.

“The whole intention (of the journal) was to get our name out,” Dr. Osvaldo DiPaolo, APSU assistant professor of Spanish and journal editor, said at the time. “It makes us look better from the outside, and it can bring potential students who are interested.”

NASA’s Mars Curiosity rover records Weather and Radiation data about Mars

 

Written by Guy Webster
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – Observations of wind patterns and natural radiation patterns on Mars by NASA’s Curiosity rover are helping scientists better understand the environment on the Red Planet’s surface.

Researchers using the car-sized mobile laboratory have identified transient whirlwinds, mapped winds in relation to slopes, tracked daily and seasonal changes in air pressure, and linked rhythmic changes in radiation to daily atmospheric changes. The knowledge being gained about these processes helps scientists interpret evidence about environmental changes on Mars that might have led to conditions favorable for life.

NASA's Mars rover Curiosity used a mechanism on its robotic arm to dig up five scoopfuls of material from a patch of dusty sand called "Rocknest," producing the five bite-mark pits visible in this image from the rover's left Navigation Camera (Navcam). Each of the pits is about 2 inches (5 centimeters) wide. (Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech)
