NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – NASA and its international partners now have the go-ahead to begin construction on a new Mars lander, after it completed a successful Mission Critical Design Review on Friday.

NASA’s Interior Exploration Using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport (InSight) mission will pierce beneath the Martian surface to study its interior. The mission will investigate how Earth-like planets formed and developed their layered inner structure of core, mantle and crust, and will collect information about those interior zones using instruments never before used on Mars.

NASA’s Swift Satellite, XMM-Newton observatory and others observe Stellar Winds from system of Giant Stars

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD – The hottest and most massive stars don’t live long enough to disperse throughout the galaxy. Instead, they can be found near the clouds of gas and dust where they formed — and where they will explode as supernovae after a few million years.

They huddle in tight clusters with other young stars or in looser groupings called OB associations, a name reflecting their impressive populations of rare O- and B-type stars.

Belgian trucker treks across Afghanistan in U.S. Army

 

Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionBastogneNangarhar Province, Afghanistan – The hulking mine resistant, ambush-protected all terrain vehicle screamed to a halt. The Soldiers held their breath for what was next.

An explosion? The road was crumbling in places and narrow enough to be an insurgent’s favorite choice.

Machine gun fire? A convoy of vehicles this long made such an opportune target.

A stray puppy? U.S. Army Pvt. Peter Beullens casually turned toward his truck commander with a smile.

During a recent mission, U.S. Army Pvt. Peter Beullens, Task Force Balls, steers his mine resistant, ambush-protected all terrain vehicle onto the hardball while escorting local resupply trucks to Forward Operating Base Garcia in eastern Afghanistan's Nangarhar Province Feb. 25th. Beullens is on his first deployment to Afghanistan. (Photo by U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Mark Burrell, Task Force Bastogne)
