Austin Peay State University launches ‘Science on Tap’ at Strawberry Alley Ale Works on September 3rd

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – When Austin Peay State University’s Dr. J. Allyn Smith talks black holes, he likes to drop in lots of “fun stuff” and quirkiness.

Take, for instance, his description of a hypernova (which is basically supernova’s bigger and more energetic brother that forms a black hole inside its starry shell): “It becomes what we call a self-eating watermelon, the black hole eats the star from the inside out.”

Dodging the Roadkill: Rocky Mountain High – Part 3

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – When I agreed to go to Sturgis, that was all there was to it.  I would spend the week at the Rally and come home.

Somewhere along the way, this adventure expanded into a full blown travel itinerary that included stops in Colorado Springs, and Ouray, Colorado.

A couple of years ago, I met an Army veteran and his wife, Craig and Kim Kotzen. 

Craig and I met through a mutual friend, and our love for motorcycles developed into a great friendship.  We’ve traveled several times to the Smoky Mountains where we’ve gotten to know each other better.

NASA reports Landsat Illustrates Five Decades of Change to Greenland Glaciers

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD – NASA says ice fronts have retreated, rocky peaks are more exposed, fewer icebergs drift to the ocean: the branching network of glaciers that empty into Greenland’s Sermilik Fjord has changed significantly in the last half century. Comparing Landsat images from 1972 and 2019, those changes and more come into view.

The glaciers appear brownish grey in this true-color Landsat 8 satellite image from August 12th, 2019. The color indicates that the surface has melted, a process that concentrates dust and rock particles and leads to a darker recrystallized ice sheet surface.
