The I-Cubs struck first in the bottom of the second inning when Stephen Bruno drove home Victor Caratini on a dribbler up the middle. Iowa maintained a one run advantage until the top of the fourth inning when with two outs Chapman stepped to the plate. The Sounds third baseman deposited a 2-2 pitch well beyond the left field fence to knot the game up at one run apiece.

My Two Cents: Dusty

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterPerdido Key, FL – We vacation here every year, and every year we manage to meet new friends.  They come from all over and we’re united by the ocean, the pool and the sunshine.  Once our time here is done, we go our separate ways, never to be seen by one another again.

Not this year. 

This year I met a young man who has touched my heart and soul.  A man who faces unbelievable challenges every day and that’s just before breakfast.

NASA’s Mars Curiosity rover examines Ancient Lake on Mars

 

Written by Guy Webster
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – A long-lasting lake on ancient Mars provided stable environmental conditions that differed significantly from one part of the lake to another, according to a comprehensive look at findings from the first three-and-a-half years of NASA’s Curiosity rover mission.

Different conditions favorable for different types of microbes existed simultaneously in the same lake.

Previous work had revealed the presence of a lake more than three billion years ago in Mars’ Gale Crater. This study defines the chemical conditions that existed in the lake and uses Curiosity’s powerful payload to determine that the lake was stratified.

This evenly layered rock imaged in 2014 by the Mastcam on NASA's Curiosity Mars rover shows a pattern typical of a lake-floor sedimentary deposit near where flowing water entered a lake. Shallow and deep parts of an ancient Martian lake left different clues in mudstone formed from lakebed deposits. (NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS)
