Dodging the Roadkill: Riding Skyline Drive in Canon City Colorado

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyCanon City, CO – During my first trip to Colorado, one of the things that I had to see, was Skyline Drive in Canon City Colorado.  After riding up and over the Rocky Mountains, and Mount Evans, I didn’t expect this to be much of a trip.

I was wrong.

We left Colorado Springs and headed down highway 115.  It was early in the morning, so there was little traffic, but we could tell it was going to be a hot day.

The ride to Canon City was different from the others we had taken earlier in the week.  The scenery was more “brown and tan” as opposed to the beautiful green colors of the mountains.

NASA says second Star in System can make Planets look smaller

 

Written by Elizabeth Landau
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – In the search for planets similar to our own, an important point of comparison is the planet’s density. A low density tells scientists a planet is more likely to be gaseous like Jupiter, and a high density is associated with rocky planets like Earth. But a new study suggests some are less dense than previously thought because of a second, hidden star in their systems.

As telescopes stare at particular patches of sky, they can’t always differentiate between one star and two. A system of two closely orbiting stars may appear in images as a single point of light, even from sophisticated observatories such as NASA’s Kepler space telescope.

This cartoon explains why the reported sizes of some exoplanets may need to be revised in cases where there is a second star in the system. (NASA/JPL-Caltech)
