NASA begins planning for Orion Spacecraft manned mission

 

NASA Headquarters

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – In February, NASA began an effort looking at the feasibility of putting crew aboard the first integrated flight of the Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft — Exploration Mission-1, or EM-1. After weighing the data and assessing all implications, the agency will continue pursuing the original plan for the first launch, as a rigorous flight test of the integrated systems without crew. 

However, engineers will apply insights gained from the effort to the first flight test and the integrated systems to strengthen the long-term push to extend human presence deeper into the solar system.

Dodging The Roadkill: Riding the Natchez Trace Parkway

 

Clarksville, TN I had heard so much about riding the Natchez Trace Parkway that when the day came, I was like a kid in a candy store.

As you know, I love to travel alone and everything I had heard about “riding the Trace” indicated that if you want to be “one” with your bike, and enjoy some solitude, then the Trace is where you go.

It was November 8th, 2016, Election Day.  We would FINALLY  be at the end of this national nightmare of a Presidential Election.  I was so sick of it all that taking this trip was the perfect way to turn off all the damn “noise.”

AAA reports Prices at the Pump Drop for First Time in Three Weeks

 

AAATampa, FL – Gas prices have dropped slowly on the week. Today’s national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $2.39, a three cents drop from one week ago; however, it is an increase of nine cents over last month and 18 cents more than this time last year. One year ago, the country was experiencing higher consumer demand and prices were increasing.

Fast forward to today, consumers are still experiencing higher gas prices over last year due to the OPEC agreement, but we are not seeing substantial increases at the pump due to increased gasoline inventories and low demand across the country.

AAA reports Average Gas Prices Remain Steady Despite Low Demand

 

AAATampa, FL – National gas prices have increased fractions of a penny to reach today’s average price for regular unleaded gasoline, which is $2.28 per gallon. Today’s average is the same as one week ago, five cents less compared to one month ago and 56 cents more than the same date last year.

Prices continue to remain flat due to lower driving demand and an oversupplied market as a result of increased U.S. production. As refinery maintenance season begins and driving demand increases, we could expect to see some of the gasoline supply in the U.S. soaked up.
