Dodging the Roadkill: Dad

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Happy Father’s Day to all of you dads and grand dads!  This is the day we recognize your strength, love and hard work to raise your family, and provide them with every opportunity.

My father was the youngest of four boys from Dayton, Ohio.  They lived through the Great Depression with little to call their own, but they had what they needed.

When my Dad turned 18, he bolted from a town that he didn’t want to be in and joined the Army.  He was stationed at Fort Campbell Kentucky where he met my mother.

A Last Look at Saturn from NASA’s Cassini Spacecraft

 

Written by Preston Dyches
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – In a fitting farewell to the planet that had been its home for over 13 years, the Cassini spacecraft took one last, lingering look at Saturn and its splendid rings during the final leg of its journey and snapped a series of images that has been assembled into a new mosaic. 

Cassini’s wide-angle camera acquired 42 red, green and blue images, covering the planet and its main rings from one end to the other, on September 13th, 2017. Imaging scientists stitched these frames together to make a natural color view. The scene also includes the moons Prometheus, Pandora, Janus, Epimetheus, Mimas and Enceladus.

After more than 13 years at Saturn, and with its fate sealed, NASA's Cassini spacecraft bid farewell to the Saturnian system by firing the shutters of its wide-angle camera and capturing this last, full mosaic of Saturn and its rings two days before the spacecraft's dramatic plunge into the planet's atmosphere.
