Dodging the Roadkill: Weathering the Winter

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – The winter months have always been my least favorite time of the year.  Obviously when I was a kid, I loved the snow and all that came with it, but as an adult, a biker, and a man who has a few “achy” bones, winter is NOT fun for me.

One of the greatest things about this blog and all of you who follow, is that I get to learn so much about you and the part of the country that you live in.  I’ve never been so blessed by anything in my life as I have with this motorcycle and the people and places it brings me.

NASA’s Mars 2020 Rover’s Mast to include new Laser Instrument

 

SuperCam is a rock-vaporizing instrument that will help scientists hunt for Mars fossils.

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – NASA is sending a new laser-toting robot to Mars. But unlike the lasers of science fiction, this one is used for studying mineralogy and chemistry from up to about 20 feet (7 meters) away. It might help scientists find signs of fossilized microbial life on the Red Planet, too.

One of seven instruments aboard the Mars 2020 rover that launches this summer, SuperCam was built by a team of hundreds and packs what would typically require several sizable pieces of equipment into something no bigger than a cereal box.

NASA reports Successful Landing of Boeing’s Starliner Flight Test

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – NASA says Boeing’s CST-100 Starliner spacecraft completed the first land touchdown of a human-rated capsule in U.S. history Sunday at White Sands Space Harbor in New Mexico, wrapping up the company’s uncrewed Orbital Flight Test as part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program.

Starliner settled gently onto its airbags at 6:58am CST (5:58am MST) in a pre-dawn landing that helps set the stage for future crewed landings at the same site. The landing followed a deorbit burn at 6:23am, separation of the spacecraft’s service module, and successful deployment of its three main parachutes and six airbags.

The Boeing CST-100 Starliner spacecraft is seen after it landed in White Sands, New Mexico, Sunday, December 22nd, 2019. The landing completes an abbreviated Orbital Flight Test for the company that still meets several mission objectives for NASA’s Commercial Crew program. (NASA/Bill Ingalls)
