Dodging the Roadkill: Old School Or New, It Doesn’t Matter

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Bikers come in all shapes and sizes.  Motorcycles come in all shapes and sizes.  Ever wonder why?  I think it reflects the culture of motorcycles.

There’s a biker for every ride and a ride for every biker.  We’re ALL bikers, regardless of the size of our machine, or it’s age, or the technology it carries. 

My only regret is that I didn’t discover this passion when I was younger.   

I love meeting bikers who have been riding for 30, 40, even 50 years and more.  I love hearing about their machines and what it took to keep them running.  I love the stories of group rides “back in the day.”  I would have loved to have been a biker then.

NASA’s twin Voyager Spacecraft helped improve Communications

 

Written by Andrew Good
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – As NASA’s twin Voyager spacecraft were changing our understanding of the solar system, they also spurred a leap in spacecraft communications.

The mission’s impact is still visible in California’s Mojave Desert. There, at NASA’s Goldstone Deep Space Communications Complex, the arcs of antenna dishes peek out over craggy hilltops. Goldstone was the first place where the two Voyagers started to change the landscape. The farther they traveled, the bigger these dishes needed to be so they could send and receive radio waves necessary to track and communicate with the probes.

In order to "talk" with the distant Voyager spacecraft, NASA had to leap forward in space communication technology. In the image above, a 64-meter-wide antenna dish in Goldstone, Calif. is expanded to 70 meters. (NASA/JPL-Caltech)
