Marsha Blackburn Report: This Week From Washington – July 5th, 2020

 

ERA of Self Regulation is Over

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – What the digital mob chooses to attack changes with the news cycle. As we have seen, this heavily influences how Big Tech polices content on their platforms.

Senator Marsha Blackburn.

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – At a Senate hearing this past week on COVID-19 Coronavirus, U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) asked National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director Francis Collins whether “In the midst of all this depressing news about the virus, will there be enough tests so we can watch some football this fall, or basketball this winter?”

NASA creates Galactic Cosmic Ray Simulator to assess Space Travel risks of Radiation

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – NASA has created a space radiation simulator where researchers can speed up understanding of radiation risks astronauts face, and develop techniques to reduce those risks, as they head to the Moon under the Artemis Program and prepare for future missions to Mars.

Based on new technology and an innovative design for creating a broad spectrum of galactic cosmic rays (GCRs), the new space radiation simulator was developed through collaborations with world-leading space radiation researchers at NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia and the NASA Space Radiation Laboratory at Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, New York.
