Clarksville City Council Update for October 22nd, 2012

 

Clarksville City Council - Ward 10Clarksville, TN – We have had some issues within the ward with crime, speeding, and traffic. The Rudolph Town neighborhood has had some vehicle break-ins a couple of weeks ago. In response to citizen concerns, I asked our Clarksville police precinct to run any extra patrols possible through the neighborhood.

As a reminder during this holiday season, whether at home or out shopping, do not leave valuable items in sight within your vehicle and lock it up when it is parked. Also, for goodness sake do not leave a vehicle running while you pop into the “quickie mart” for that loaf of bread or milk. «Read the rest of this article»

Written Guy Webster
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – The NASA Mars rover Curiosity this week is driving within a shallow depression called “Yellowknife Bay,” providing information to help researchers choose a rock to drill.

Using Curiosity’s percussive drill to collect a sample from the interior of a rock, a feat never before attempted on Mars, is the mission’s priority for early 2013. After the powdered-rock sample is sieved and portioned by a sample-processing mechanism on the rover’s arm, it will be analyzed by instruments inside Curiosity.
