Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan – Pebbles and dust flew as the black and tan German Shepard, Larry, a working dog from United States Forces-Afghanistan Mad Dog Kennels, hurtled toward his intended target, a burly man from AMK9’s contract working dog team in a bite suit.

In an explosion of muscle and fur, Larry launched himself at the man, clamping his jaws around a healthy portion of the suit.

Larry, the working dog who is handled by Spc. Austin Lancaster, native of Amarillo, Texas and military working dog handler for the 180th Military Working Dog Detachment in Fort Leonard Wood, latches on to the bite sleeve of an AMK9 contractor during the controlled aggression portion of the K9 Competition here on Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan.

NASA Balloon Mission observes Polar Mesospheric Clouds

 

NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD – On the cusp of our atmosphere live a thin group of seasonal electric blue clouds. Forming 50 miles above the poles in summer, these clouds are known as noctilucent clouds or polar mesospheric clouds — PMCs. A recent NASA long-duration balloon mission observed these clouds over the course of five days at their home in the mesosphere.

The resulting photos, which scientists have just begun to analyze, will help us better understand turbulence in the atmosphere, as well as in oceans, lakes and other planetary atmospheres, and may even improve weather forecasting.
