Dodging the Roadkill: Reckless

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I’m sure at one time or another, we’ve ALL done something reckless.  That’s how it is when you’re young and immortal.  As you grow older though, you become a bit wiser, not to mention you understand, “I’m too old to so something this stupid.”

I went on a group ride over the weekend and there were seven of us.  A couple of Harley’s a couple of Gold Wings and a couple of sport bikes.  “Crotch rockets” as some like to call them.

The sport bikes were guys I had never met.  Good guys, but it was our first time riding together.  The plan was to get out for a few hours while it was still the cool of the morning, and be done before the heat settled in.

Tennessee Titans roster remains nearly intact for next season

 

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – Perhaps Tennessee Titans executive vice president/general manager Jon Robinson’s two most critical moves since the AFC Championship game were locking up a pair of the team’s own free agents with new, multi-year contracts—quarterback Ryan Tannehill and running back Derrick Henry.

Tannehill, acquired in a trade with the Miami Dolphins, was a catalyst for the team’s resurgence in 2019, taking control as the starter in Week 7 and finishing the campaign with a league-best 117.5 passer rating. He was named to his first Pro Bowl and voted the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year.

NASA’s Artemis I Rocket completes Four Green Runs

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationHuntsville, AL – The Space Launch System (SLS) rocket core stage for the Artemis I lunar mission has successfully completed its first four Green Run tests and is building on those tests for the next phase of checkout as engineers require more capability of the hardware before hot-firing the stage and its four powerful engines.

Green Run is a demanding series of eight tests and nearly 30 firsts: first loading of the propellant tanks, first flow through the propellant feed systems, first firing of all four engines, and first exposure of the stage to the vibrations and temperatures of launch.

The Space Launch System (SLS) rocket is completing the Green Run test for the rocket’s core stage, shown installed on the top left side of the B-2 Test Stand at NASA’s Stennis Space Center near Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. For Green Run, the team is completing a series of eight tests culminating with Test 8, a full-up hot fire test that lasts eight minutes. Flames from the test will exit out of the yellow flame bucket shown here on the north side of the test stand. (NASA/Stennis)
