Dodging the Roadkill: Boots

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I seem to be able to find inspiration for my posts in the most unlikely places sometimes. 

Today as I was taking off my boots from an afternoon ride, I looked at them and thought, “these things have supported me for a lot of miles.  Oh the stories they could tell.”

While I DID buy a new pair of boots last year, I just keep putting on the old ones because they just feel better and as superstitious as I am, I don’t make many changes in my riding style.  

They’ve been with me since the beginning.  We’ve been together a long time. I couldn’t possibly throw them out.

NASA’s Mars Helicopter Completes Flight Tests

 

NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – Since the Wright brothers first took to the skies of Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, December 17th, 1903, first flights have been important milestones in the life of any vehicle designed for air travel. After all, it’s one thing to design an aircraft and make it fly on paper – or computer. It is quite another to put all the pieces together and watch them get off the ground.

In late January 2019, all the pieces making up the flight model (actual vehicle going to the Red Planet) of NASA’s Mars Helicopter were put to the test.

Members of the NASA Mars Helicopter team attach a thermal film to the exterior of the flight model of the Mars Helicopter. The image was taken on February 1st, 2019 inside the Space Simulator, a 25-foot-wide (7.62-meter-wide) vacuum chamber at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. (NASA/JPL-Caltech)
