NASA prepares for future Satellite by studying Coral Reefs of Hawaii

 

Written by Alan Buis
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – NASA pulled off a scientific double play in Hawaii this winter, using the same instruments and aircraft to study both volcanoes and coral reefs. Besides helping scientists understand these two unique environments better, the data will be used to evaluate the possibility of preparing a potential future NASA satellite that would monitor ecosystem changes and natural hazards.

The advantages of studying active volcanoes from the air rather than the ground are obvious. Coral reefs may not offer the same risks in a close encounter that volcanoes do, but there’s another good reason to study them by remote sensing: they’re dotted across thousands of square miles of the globe.

Nashville Sounds get shutout by Sacramento River Cats 1-0

 

Nashville Sounds Baseball

Nashville SoundsWest Sacramento, CA – Designated hitter Daric Barton was hit in the knee by Donovan Hand with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 10th inning to give the Sacramento River Cats a 1-0 shutout victory over the Nashville Sounds in the finale of a four-game set on Wednesday afternoon at Raley Field.

Brandon Hicks hit a ground-rule double on the first pitch from Hand to begin the bottom of the 10th inning, which was lost in the sun by center fielder Logan Schafer. Hicks later moved to third on a couple of walks, and scored the winning run as Barton was struck by Hand’s off-speed pitch. Hand and pitching coach Fred Dabney both argued that Barton leaned into the pitch after the game ended.
