Dodging the Roadkill: Road Captain

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – When I started this journey, I would only ride with a couple of guys, but for the most part, I’m a loner.  I prefer riding alone, because this is my “happy place.”  As you obviously know, if you’re a biker, the solitude of man and his machine, cutting through the countryside, is an experience that is almost spiritual.  I wrote about it here.

As I was making new friends, I started getting involved in my local H.O.G chapter. It was a great way to meet new people who shared the same passion I did.  Each chapter hosts group rides on a regular basis, and it’s a way to create fellowship and ride, ride, ride.

NASA says Dark Energy Survey helps us understand structure of the Universe

 

Written by Elizabeth Landau
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – What is our universe made of, and has its composition changed over time? Scientists have new insights about these fundamental questions, thanks to an international collaboration of more than 400 scientists called the Dark Energy Survey (DES).

Three scientists from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, are part of this group that is helping to further our understanding of the structure of the universe.

The advances in astrophysics from DES are crucial to preparations for two upcoming space missions that will probe similar questions about the nature of the universe: ESA’s Euclid mission (which has significant NASA participation) and NASA’s Wide-Field Infrared Survey Telescope mission, both expected to launch in the 2020s.
