NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope observations reveal possible Stormy Weather on Brown Dwarfs

 

Written by Whitney Clavin
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – Cool celestial orbs called brown dwarfs may have swirling, stormy clouds present. New observations from NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope suggest that most brown dwarfs are roiling with one or more planet-size storms akin to Jupiter’s “Great Red Spot.”

“As the brown dwarfs spin on their axis, the alternation of what we think are cloud-free and cloudy regions produces a periodic brightness variation that we can observe,” said Stanimir Metchev of the University of Western Ontario, Canada. “These are signs of patchiness in the cloud cover.”

This artist's concept shows what the weather might look like on cool star-like bodies known as brown dwarfs. These giant balls of gas start out life like stars, but lack the mass to sustain nuclear fusion at their cores, and instead, fade and cool with time.

Tennessee Representative Joe Pitts talks about President Tim Hall Leaving Austin Peay State University

 

“…they are leaving our university a much stronger institution because of their commitment to servant leadership.”

Tennessee State Representative - House District 67Clarksville, TN – The recent news of the departure of Austin Peay State University President Tim Hall to become the next leader at Mercy College in New York is certainly a blow to our community, especially those of us who are Austin Peay alums.

It is difficult if not impossible to measure the positive impact on our university by Tim and the APSU First Lady Lee Hall.

It must be said though that Tim and Lee Hall have infused a new standard of excellence at our alma mater, and they have made an equal, if not greater impact on higher education in our beloved state.

American Heart Association says void the holiday jelly-belly by making holiday traditions healthy

 

American Heart AssociationNashville, TN – The holiday season is about family and food – and all too often, adding a few extra pounds to our waistlines. Break The Tradition!

Are you a mindless eater? Mindless eating is consuming food just because it’s there. It’s eating while distracted – watching TV, working at a computer or texting on our smartphones. It’s eating for emotional comfort instead of for hunger. Simply put, it’s not paying attention to what we eat which can lead to being overweight and even obesity.

Make this holiday a healthy one.

NASA’s Mars Curiosity Rover nears it’s next destination, Cooperstown outcrop

 

Written by Guy Webster
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Fort Campbell's Morale, Welfare and Recreation - MWRPasadena, CA – NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity completed its first two-day autonomous drive Monday, bringing the mobile laboratory to a good vantage point for pictures useful in selecting the next target the rover will reach out and touch.

When it drives autonomously, the rover chooses a safe route to designated waypoints by using its onboard computer to analyze stereo images that it takes during pauses in the drive.

The low ridge that appears as a dark band below the horizon in the center of this scene is a Martian outcrop called "Cooperstown," a possible site for contact inspection with tools on the robotic arm of NASA's Mars rover Curiosity. The ridge extends roughly 100 feet (about 30 meters) from left to right, and it is about 260 feet (about 80 meters) away from the location from which Curiosity captured this view.
