Marsha Blackburn Report: This Week From Tennessee – August 18th, 2019

 

U.S. SenateNashville, TN – Middle Tennessee and East Tennessee are both home to some of the prettiest country in the state–and some seriously hard workers! I spent another week hearing from local leaders and business owners about some of the area’s biggest challenges, and brainstorming ways to keep the economy thriving.

I stopped by the female-owned Crescent Sock Company in McMinn County. The owners’ ancestors played a big role in the women’s suffrage movement. Cathy and Sandra are descendants of Harry T. Burn, a local lawmaker whose vote made Tennessee the 36th and final state needed to ratify the 19th Amendment.

Senator Marsha Blackburn.

NASA picks Study Proposals for understanding Fundamental Nature of Space

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. Two Proposals have been picked by NASA for concept studies that could help us better understand the fundamental nature of space and how it changes in response to planetary atmospheres, radiation from the Sun, and interstellar particles. The proposals will advance NASA’s heliophysics program and could lead to better protection for both technology and humans as we travel farther from home.

Each of these Heliophysics Science Mission of Opportunity proposals will receive $400,000 to conduct a nine-month mission concept study.

NASA has chosen two new science proposals for nine-month concept studies to advance our understanding of how the particles and energy in space – shown here flowing from the Sun in an illustration of the solar wind – affect the fundamental nature of space. One proposal will ultimately be chosen to launch along with NASA’s upcoming Interstellar Mapping and Acceleration Probe in October 2024. (NASA)
