Dodging the Roadkill: The Week That Was

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – This has been an eventful week, to say the least.  I’ve learned more about myself, and my motorcycle, than I have in all the short time I’ve been riding.

A couple of weeks ago, my mechanic was asking me if I had changed out my front wheel bearings.  I told him I hadn’t.  He said he thought it would be a good idea, since the wheels had over fifty thousand miles on them (I know, right?).   

So I wasn’t able to get to the dealership that week, and lo and behold, as I was riding one day, they went out.  I limped home, had the bike towed to the dealership and it was fixed.

NASA’s path to the Moon runs through Alabama

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – Since the earliest days of the NASA space program, the path to the Moon has run through Alabama. Today, work in the “Rocket City” Huntsville and across the state is advancing the largest rocket we’ve ever built and our Artemis Program to land humans on the Moon by 2024.

At a recent visit with the Huntsville Chamber of Commerce, NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine demonstrated Alabama’s deep technical and economic contributions to our nation’s space program.

The largest piece of structural test hardware for America’s new deep space rocket, the Space Launch System, was loaded into Test Stand 4693 at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama Jan. 14, 2019. The liquid hydrogen tank is part of the rocket’s core stage that is more than 200 feet tall with a diameter of 27.6 feet, and stores cryogenic liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen that will feed the vehicle’s RS-25 engines.
