Dodging the Roadkill: Honoring A Brother I Never Knew

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Heading into the weekend, I was looking to “latch” onto a ride, so I called one of the three guys I’m going to Sturgis with this summer, and suggested we get together to discuss our upcoming adventure.   He said he already had plans for Saturday, but I was welcome to join him.

So I did, and I was humbled by what I experienced.

The Benny J. Humphrey Memorial ride was a true testament to the character, love and respect that Benny Humphrey had to those who knew him best.  I now wish I was one of them.

NASA’s CaveR rover helps scientists explore Underground Life

 

NASA Scientists test out new methods of discovering life in California lava tubes that could one day be used on other worlds.

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationSilicon Valley, CA – NASA says imagine descending into a cave carved out by lava to work alongside a rover about the size of Spirit and Opportunity on Mars, watching the pristine wilderness of a national park transition into tall pillars and stalactites, all in a search for subterranean microbes.

That was a typical day for NASA’s Biologic and Resource Analog Investigations in Low Light Environments project, also known as BRAILLE, while on deployment. Operated out of NASA’s Ames Research Center in Silicon Valley, the BRAILLE team is developing the capability to detect life on the walls of volcanic caves from afar.
