NASA’s BRUIE Robotic Submersible tested under Sea Ice

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – NASA’s little robotic explorer will be rolling into Antarctica this month to perform a gymnastic feat – driving upside down under sea ice.

BRUIE, or the Buoyant Rover for Under-Ice Exploration, is being developed for underwater exploration in extraterrestrial, icy waters by engineers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. It will spend the next month testing its endurance at Australia’s Casey research station in Antarctica, in preparation for a mission that could one day search for life in ocean worlds beyond Earth.  

An underwater rover called BRUIE is being tested in Antarctica to look for life under the ice. Developed by engineers at NASA-JPL, the robotic submersible could one day explore ice-covered oceans on moons like Europa and Enceladus. BRUIE is pictured here in an arctic lake near Barrow, Alaska in 2015. (NASA)

Nashville Predators continue to struggle with loss to Winnipeg Jets 2-1

 

Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators continue to struggle finding the back of the net, falling behind early, then chasing the game and unable to hold off the Winnipeg Jets, 2-1.

Winnipeg scored just 18 seconds into the game when Patrik Laine completed a classic “give and go” with Kyle Connor to put the Jets on the board, 1-0.

The Predators have been falling behind early in their last series of games and just haven’t been able to rally back for a win.  The effort has been there, but the goal tending against them has been superior.  Tonight it was Connor Hellebuyck for Winnipeg that held off the Predators.
