Spring is the best time to get the highest price for your used vehicle

AAAKnoxville, TN – Depreciation is the single most expensive cost of owning a vehicle. Your vehicle depreciates the minute you drive it off the lot, and steadily decreases in value each year.

As a quick rule of thumb, a car will lose between 15 and 20 percent of its value each year. After three years of a car’s life, depending on the vehicle, it may have depreciated by as much as half of its original value.

NASA’s Mars Curiosity rover discovers Two Tone Mineral Veins on side of Martian Mountain

 

Written by Guy Webster
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – Two-tone mineral veins at a site NASA’s Curiosity rover has reached by climbing a layered Martian mountain offer clues about multiple episodes of fluid movement. These episodes occurred later than the wet environmental conditions that formed lake-bed deposits the rover examined at the mountain’s base.

Curiosity has analyzed rock samples drilled from three targets lower on the mountain in the past seven months. It found a different mineral composition at each, including a silica mineral named cristobalite in the most recent sample.

This March 18, 2015, view from the Mast Camera on NASA's Curiosity Mars rover shows a network of two-tone mineral veins at an area called "Garden City" on lower Mount Sharp. (NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS)
