Dodging the Roadkill: Weekend In The Smokies – Part 2

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I spent another weekend in the great Smoky Mountains this past weekend, not so much for riding my Harley, but to ride my Harley with friends and family.

The family were 3 cousins who hadn’t seen each other for over thirty years.  Family who had lost touch and finally were able to connect.  And it was the motorcycle that made that connection happen.

Jay and Roy hadn’t seen Diann for years, and she was coming to Tennessee to ride the Smoky Mountains.  To get back up after falling on the Tail of the Dragon.  To hang out with her cousins she hadn’t seen for so long.

NASA’s Dawn mission study shows Dwarf Planet Ceres could have had an Ocean

 

Written by Elyssia Widjaja
NASA-Jet Propulsion Laboratory News Office

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – Minerals containing water are widespread on Ceres, suggesting the dwarf planet may have had a global ocean in the past. What became of that ocean? Could Ceres still have liquid today? Two new studies from NASA’s Dawn mission shed light on these questions.

The Dawn team found that Ceres’ crust is a mixture of ice, salts and hydrated materials that were subjected to past and possibly recent geologic activity, and that this crust represents most of that ancient ocean.

This photo shows dwarf planet Ceres as seen by NASA's Dawn. The map overlaid at right gives scientists hints about Ceres' internal structure from gravity measurements. (NASA/JPL-Caltech/UCLA/MPS/DLR/IDA)
