NASA selects Instruments for mission to Jupiter’s moon Europa

 

Written by Preston Dyches
NASA’ Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – NASA has selected nine science instruments for a mission to Jupiter’s moon Europa, to investigate whether the mysterious icy moon could harbor conditions suitable for life.

NASA’s Galileo mission yielded strong evidence that Europa, about the size of Earth’s moon, has an ocean beneath a frozen crust of unknown thickness. If proven to exist, this global ocean could have more than twice as much water as Earth.

With abundant salt water, a rocky sea floor, and the energy and chemistry provided by tidal heating, Europa could be the best place in the solar system to look for present day life beyond our home planet.

Any Gardener has the capabilities to grow Orchids

 
Large Purple Cattleya Orchid Corsage

Large Purple Cattleya Orchid Corsage

Clarksville, TN – When I was growing up, I believed that the most glamorous corsage any woman could receive was either a huge purple or white Cattleya orchid. My dad believed that too and usually presented both my grandmothers and my mother with either this type of showy bloom or a couple of Cymbidium orchids for most special occasions.

When I lived in College Park, Maryland, I visited Kensington Orchids just off the Beltway outside of Washington, D. C., and bought my first Cattleya orchid plant. When I lived in Belmont, Massachusetts, I was fortunate to belong to the Massachusetts Orchid Society and to get to know Dick Peterson, then editor of the American Orchid Society Bulletin. When I moved to Charlottesville, Virginia, I was one of the founding members of the Charlottesville Orchid Society and served as its first president.
