NASA makes Highly Accurate GPS Possible

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – Navigating to within three inches of your destination is made possible by algorithms and software developed by NASA. These power a NASA system that augments the raw navigation signals provided by the U.S. Air Force’s GPS satellites to support airplane navigation around the world, direct emergency responders and, soon, guide self-driving cars.

The Air Force began launching global positioning satellites in 1978, and it continues to operate and maintain the satellite network to this day. But over the decades, NASA has played a critical role in improving the system we rely on in our daily lives.

Dodging the Roadkill: The Sturgis Chronicles – Part 7

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – As soon as I started meeting other bikers in Sturgis, who came from all over the country, I quickly learned that everybody comes to this rally for different reasons. 

Some came to be with friends that they only saw this time of the year.  Others came in groups to have a good time, see all the performers and just let their hair down.

I met many couples who were making their way to the West Coast, where ultimately they were going to ride the Pacific Coast Highway in California.

Me?  I came to ride and ride we did.

Dodging the Roadkill: The Adventure Of A Lifetime

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I met Rob Leunberger during a recent memorial run he organized for a friend who tragically lost his life on the back of his motorcycle.  You can read that story here.

As I joined the group for the day’s ride, I was on the outside looking in.  I didn’t know most of  those who had gathered to honor their friend, on this scorching hot summer day. 

At the end of the day though, I had witnessed an amazing friendship among men and women, brought together by a motorcycle, with a love for one another that was special.  They would do ANYTHING for each other!
