Nashville Sounds

Nashville SoundsSalt Lake City, UT – The Nashville Sounds came from behind to topple the Salt Lake Bees 9-5 Sunday night at Smith’s Ballpark. The win snapped a season-long four-game losing streak for the Sounds.

Trailing 5-3 in the seventh, the Sounds used an unconventional play to take the lead. With two outs in the inning Brett Vertigan gave the Sounds the spark they needed. His double chased Salt Lake starter Dylan Unsworth from the game.

Unsworth’s replacement, Ryan Clark entered and promptly plunked Melvin Mercedes. Ramón Laureano then drew a walk to load the bases.

Tennessee Titans

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – In his fourth NFL season, Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota is charged with picking up offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur’s playbook and guiding the offense. He will do so with the benefit of a complete, healthy offseason, a luxury he did without the previous year due to injury.

The former No. 2 overall draft pick won 20 games as a starter from 2015 through 2017. It was the most by any quarterback in his first three seasons with the franchise since George Blanda joined the Oilers as a 10-year veteran in 1960 and earned 28 wins through 1962.

Tennessee Titans’ Jon Robinson shapes up Roster

 

Tennessee Titans

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – Tennessee Titans general manager Jon Robinson has had three offseasons to mold the roster to his liking and can point to tangible evidence of progress. After being named to his current post in January 2016, the team tripled its win total from 2015, going from three wins to nine wins and earning him the additional title from Amy Adams Strunk of executive vice president.

Her confidence was rewarded in 2017, when the Titans earned their first postseason berth since the 2008 season and won their first postseason game since the 2003 campaign.

NASA announces International Space Station Experiment Reaches Ultracold Milestone

 

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – NASA reports the International Space Station is officially home to the coolest experiment in space.

NASA’s Cold Atom Laboratory (CAL) was installed in the station’s U.S. science lab in late May and is now producing clouds of ultracold atoms known as Bose-Einstein condensates. These “BECs” reach temperatures just above absolute zero, the point at which atoms should theoretically stop moving entirely. This is the first time BECs have ever been produced in orbit.

CAL is a multiuser facility dedicated to the study of fundamental laws of nature using ultracold quantum gases in microgravity.

This series of graphs show the changing density of a cloud of atoms as it is cooled to lower and lower temperatures (going from left to right) approaching absolute zero. The emergence of a sharp peak in the later graphs confirms the formation of a Bose-Einstein condensate -- a fifth state of matter -- occurring here at a temperature of 130 nanoKelvin, or less than 1 Kelvin above absolute zero. (Absolute zero, or zero Kelvin, is equal to minus 459 degrees Fahrenheit or minus 273 Celsius). (NASA/JPL-Caltech)
