Vietnam vet still in the fight

Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division159th Combat Aviation Brigade

Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan – A $5.00 bill dollars transformed Roy Brown’s boyhood dream into reality in 1971.

“My mother asked me how I knew I wanted to be a pilot if I’d never flown, so I went to the local airport, paid $5.00 and rode in a Piper 140 airplane for about 20 minutes,” Brown said. “Then I walked right into the Army recruiting office and said, ‘Send me to flight school.’”

The recruiter told then-19-year-old Brown about a program called “High School to Flight School.” Still in his first semester of college, he knew flight school was a good opportunity, so he took it. His mother had reservations about him going to war, but knew that flight school was something her son would never be afforded any other way.

Roy Brown, now a chief warrant officer 5, poses in front of his helicopter in the 1970s. Brown joined in the Army in 1971 as a Cobra pilot, and he has since been certified on 11 different aircraft models. Today, he is serving the C27J Spartan liasion officer for Task Force Thunder (159th Combat Aviation Brigade) in Afghanistan.

Kepler Discovers a Planet with Two Suns

 

Written by Dr. Tony Phillips
Science@NASA

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – The existence of a world with a double sunset, as portrayed in the film Star Wars more than 30 years ago, is now scientific fact. NASA’s Kepler mission has made the first unambiguous detection of a circumbinary planet — a planet orbiting two stars — 200 light-years from Earth.

Unlike Star Wars’ Tatooine, the planet is cold, gaseous and not thought to harbor life, but its discovery demonstrates the diversity of planets in our galaxy. Previous research has hinted at the existence of circumbinary planets, but clear confirmation proved elusive. Kepler detected such a planet, known as Kepler-16b, by observing transits, where the brightness of a parent star dims from the planet crossing in front of it.
