Maryville TN – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) said members of Congress have worked together to get results for Americans and for Tennesseans.
“I often suggest Tennesseans look at Washington, D.C., as if it were a split-screen television. On one side, you hear about impeachment and tweets, but, on the other side, you have members of Congress working together to get results for Americans. And in 2019, we’ve done just that.”
“Congress passed legislation in December that provides permanent funding – that is fully paid for – for HBCUs and other minority serving institutions attended by over 2 million minority students,” Senator Alexander said.

Greenbelt, MD – Fortunately for NASA scientists today, Apollo-era leaders had the foresight to save much of the 842 pounds (382 kilograms) of Moon soil and rocks retrieved by NASA astronauts 50 years ago for future generations. They figured new crops of scientists, using instruments of their time, would be able to probe the samples with unprecedented rigor.
Now, the future that Apollo-era scientists envisioned has come. Their successors, many of whom weren’t even born when the last astronauts scooped up the Moon samples they’ll now be probing in their labs, are ready to take a giant leap towards answering long-standing questions about the evolution of our solar system.
