However, wholesale inventories were much lower than anticipated, implying (all else equal) and downward revision to the GDP estimate. Consumer sentiment improved in the mid-November assessment. Jobless claims moved below the 400,000 level, but the figures are a bit suspect at this time of year due to difficulties in the seasonal adjustment. «Read the rest of this article»

Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 are each equipped with six sets, or pairs, of thrusters to control the pitch, yaw and roll motions of the spacecraft. These include three pairs of primary thrusters and three backup, or redundant, pairs. Both spacecraft are now using all three sets of their backup thrusters.

Michael will discuss this topic in more detail as part of the next Provost Lecture Series.
