Senator Marsha Blackburn says 2019 Was a Good Year for Tennesseans

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – If the commentariat are to be believed, nothing has happened this year in our nation’s capital outside the scope of impeachment.

Funny thing about that: while most of Washington and the mainstream media were focused on the story of the day, I knew that back home, Tennesseans wanted to see a values-driven agenda that didn’t hinge on the Republican Party’s success in the 24-hour news cycle.

It wasn’t an easy thing to pull off. It took a lot of elbow grease to drag the Senate’s collective attention outside of the Beltway and into the homes and businesses of the American people; but I left my office for the last time in 2019 feeling a deep sense of gratitude for all I was able to accomplish on behalf of my fellow Tennesseans.

Senator Marsha Blackburn.

NASA looks at Mars’ Water loss today to discover how much water Mars once had

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – NASA says Mars may be a rocky planet, but it is not a hospitable world like Earth. It’s cold and dry with a thin atmosphere that has significantly less oxygen than Earth’s. But Mars likely once had liquid water, a key ingredient for life. Studying the history of water can help uncover how the Red Planet lost water and how much water it once had.

“We already knew that Mars was once a wet place,” said Curtis DeWitt, scientist at the Universities Space Research Association’s SOFIA Science Center. “But only by studying how present-day water is lost can we understand just how much existed in the deep past.”

Infrared observations can study these particles that retrace the history of liquid water because the heavier molecules are more likely to remain even after liquid water has evaporated.
