The NASA selection team released its preliminary list of potential names on Twitter . Most of them aren’t too bad. It’s important to emphasize that only one of the finalists is likely to be chosen and NASA’s selection committee is still discussing options. Three other finalists have been chosen , but at least there’s a possibility that one is added in the wake of a formal announcement. One of those names was chosen late in the afternoon from a pool of over 700 names.

The names, submitted in alphabetical order. The team also released the first batch of the nine finalists , who all meet one or more of the following criteria: 1. Ability to work on the ground 2. Ability to live on the Mars surface. 3. Ability to work in the Mars laboratory (such as in the rover’s control room). 4. Ability to work independently on the Mars laboratory. 5. Ability to be able to safely operate on the Mars laboratory. 6. Ability to live in austere isolation, as long as there is no threat of radiation. (The Mars Life Support Laboratory is being built in Texas.) 7. Ability to work in a climate suitable for life-on-Mars. 8. Ability to work in isolation, as long as there is no threat of harm to others on Mars. 9. Ability to live as close to Mars as possible in austere isolation and with no other humans. The Mars Life Support Laboratory Mars Curiosity Rover will be the first human-to-Mars mission that NASA will make. ( NASA Ames -The Mars Science Laboratory Mission , p. 13)

The Curiosity rover has a variety of scientific instrumentsdesigned to understand the geology and the atmosphere of the surface of Mars. This part of the mission should be completed before the end of the year , when the rover should begin the next part of its plan. (Source NASA - Mars Science Laboratory Mission, p. 13)

The rover’s remote sensing instrument (RMI) has the unique capability to “see” in the ultraviolet (UV) region and to assess in detail the chemical structure of the ancient Martian surface. (Source NASA: http://www.nasa.gov/msl3)

The Mars Science Laboratory is NASA’s first robotic terrestrial exploration mission that will put humans on Mars. ( NASA - Mars Science Laboratory Mission , p. 9-10)

Some other interesting stuff about a natural disaster:

1) When the last big volcanic eruptions occurred over 1,000 years ago, it took about 40 years for the resulting debris to settle and spread around the planet, and even more to die off quickly enough before the oceans or land died off.

2) “We’re pretty sure that if you can get more than one or two earthquakes in 100 years, you’re going to get a major volcanic eruption,” says David Titley, director of the Southwest Research Institute and a professor of earth sciences at Arizona State University. If you got an 18-month period while someone sits on a chair, is the air around them really stale with pollutants, and people are breathing in dust and garbage? It’s certainly a concern. Most of the big volcanic eruptions were of low magnitude, the only ones that created significant damage on land. This study published Jan. 12 in Science indicates that an 18-month-long period of the “precautionary Principle.” When the last big volcanic eruptions occurred over 1,000 years ago, it took about 40 years for the resulting debris to settle and spread around the planet, and even more to die off quickly enough before the oceans or land died off. 3) “The same principle can be invoked by a natural disaster,” says Titley. “If you put yourself in a really bad situation with a lot of risk that the community hasn’t prepared for, it may be better to wait and avoid that disaster. This doesn’t negate the need for people to be prepared. It just shows that you can avoid the worst conditions with pre-disaster planning.” In fact, research by Titley and his associates showed that, to the degree that someone is willing to admit to an impending catastrophe, they are less likely to die when living on that coast than those who say “well, I have lots of things to do.” In this way, a pandemic seems like a good opportunity for people to look back on times when the people on their island wouldn’t have seen a way to help themselves.

This is a great post on the subject. I agree wholeheartedly with Dr. Titley, and I suspect that his research will also influence scientists and policy makers in the near and long term. So what else are we waiting for?

(And yes, I know the name: Asteroid Hunter, but don’t laugh; it’s a seriously goofy name.) NASA says that some projects might be worth a more serious look. A searchable database from NASA’s Planetary Science User Group will go live soon. The database will have a list of all projects that are likely to be evaluated in the next round of the Artemis Evaluation.

Space-Bound Bats in Space

You might think all of these missions would go together, but it’s actually quite different. First, two of the four spacecraft are designed for landings. In addition, the Mars Pathfinder will launch from one of three launch sites. Also, there’s no specific timeline for a landing. Of the three, it’s actually a little hard to see which one will land first.

MOSCA: The Martian City On Mars

Also known as a base-building experiment, MOSCA will be a series of floating buildings that will function as Martian communities in zero gravity. MOSCA will use a number of components to build out a Martian city. One such piece is the planetarium . Another is a “pile”. Together, they will form an entire city, and we can imagine building this planet into what might be our future home.

Mars Science Laboratory: Mars Inflatable Space Habitat

Space Habitats can give us a glimpse into the Martian environment - and the human heart. This one would take the idea of a Mars habitat and make it come to life in an incredible way that looks like a giant, inflatable castle - if people could get enough of them. Space Habitat would be made out of a lightweight, transparent polymer but would be constructed to be self-durable. It would also feature a special oxygen system to keep your home air-tight and safe (so make sure you have a spare). The whole project costs $100 million, and it can be built in just three years.

But for all his virtues, however, he was not perfect . One day, a small band of fighters headed to Bielenstock to rescue their former allies - a giant worm and its commander. As they arrived for the mission, though, a worm dropped from the sky and crushed their ship. And it is at this moment that both the worm and the leader of the group find something very sad. A little worm named Nala, the worm they rescued, had disappeared. The worm was only a baby, but it was alive. “The Worms would not leave us alone” Suddenly, the worm turns around and takes them in its mouth. But then before it can even finish, the worm opens a portal and teleports away. The group is completely crushed and the leader is left utterly shattered .

Nala continues to spawn worms to follow the same pattern of existence, only with each worm spawning on a random worm in the same room as it. But as you are likely aware by now, this was only a prelude to the Wormstorm.

“The Worms are coming! You will not escape us until we destroy your world!” A worm bursts forth and lands directly on the worm nest that the worm had been visiting. Unfortunately for the worm, and for the tiny worm called Nala, it is immediately overwhelmed by a swarm of thousands of these creatures. The worm can do nothing but watch as it grows to a towering height, only to slowly fade as its very existence is taken out in the most ruthless of ways.

As the worm slowly fades from existence, its sole soul is slowly ripped out of its body and eaten away by its fellow inhabitants of the worm nest. In the end, only one worm is left. For this worm and all others like it, there will be no rest; only eternal darkness. The Worms return to their worm nest and feast on the souls of their former enemies.

Alford The Worm

Alford is a mighty creature whose home is the world of Kismet, the Worm Queen. Alford is well-groomed and his skin is soft and smooth. His teeth are even polished and his eyes are brown as ivory, black having long been a part of Alford’s nature. Alford wears a ring as a crown on his head, and two rings in two other locations: the first is a golden ring that’s attached to another ring on his finger and the second is an amber ring that’s in a small gold pouch on his breast. Alford’s face is a white and smooth stone - very unlike his appearance in the first game, in which they said his skin was a gray stone with some kind of “frosting on the inside.” He has an enormous, thick head of fur that goes almost to his waist and a body that is more bulky and hefty than what we will see in the game. While he has a thick, muscular head, his shoulders are relatively small and his body is more compact than that of the first game. Alford’s eyes are set in a small, dark stone that seems to stand between the light and the dark. His jaw is very large and his snout is full of sharp teeth. Alford is very strong; in fact, he is apparently a force of nature, capable of swinging around a fist-sized boulder like it’s no small thing, though even stronger creatures wouldn’t dare try to wrestle him over any smaller objects. He is quite capable of swinging his arms against the sides of walls and fences while swinging off the edge of a cliff-top. Though his arms are big and strong, he is no match against the giant giant worms with their claws that could pierce his skin with one hand. Alford carries with him a small staff that he can use to attack with his bare hands.

Lilly the Worm

Alford is the second of Lily’s daughters, the second to be born to the Worm Queen. Lilly is a beautiful, pale child of about twenty years old. This is different from her appearance in the first game and we will get to that later. Lilly’s body is all soft, silky fur and her skin is soft as silk. While she has curly hair on the top of her back, its quality is such that it does not cover this part of her body. She has big brown eyes. As well, her upper body is very tall and very muscular. This indicates there is a huge gap between her upper body and her lower one and she has quite a bit of girth on her upper body as well as her lower body, implying she is quite large for a girl her age, which is possible due to the fact that there

The corals were created with 3D printing in the wild, and have a whole range of features that provide benefits to both humans and the sea. The corals weren’t engineered to be fish-like or even sea urchins: they’re fish-like, with an impressive array of muscles, a spiny foot, and a tongue that acts like a mouth.

How do these new, genetically engineered fish fit within the larger world? At the rate of coral dying each year - which seems inevitable - we’re going to run out of coral and are moving on to the next step - to make new corals. And, while we’re on the subject of new corals… 3D-printed corals could potentially be used to build a new “sea forest,” a “sea grass” called the chytrid fungus, and a variety of fish and other aquatic organisms.

3D printing has made it easier for people to customize their items. And this trend of 3D printing is only accelerating. It isn’t just 3D printing or fashion: a significant portion of our items are “printable,” which basically means they can be made by computers and 3D printers. This trend has started, and it’s already having some interesting effects on the environment. 3D printing and the printing of many items can be more environmentally friendly than the traditional mass-production of paper and cardboard. When 3D printers arrive at your door, they’re made by using less water. This is great, and the use of a third party to print your furniture or appliances is more efficient. But here’s where it gets tricky:

Water. It’s very common for things like furniture or appliances to be printed using the 3D printing systems that exist today. All of these are fairly new, not to mention difficult to manufacture and ship, let alone get to market. If you’re not living in a city, you definitely aren’t going to be able to afford a 3D printer. However, if you’re in one, you’re going to want to be able to print things like furniture. So, let’s say I’m in Seattle and I want to print a couple of new stuff for my house. I order a CNC file from Shapeways and send it off to their printers. When they’re done printing, they’ll ship it back to me. In return, they’ll send it back through a FedEx delivery company, where I can pick it up. How exactly are these things shipped? The basic problem: no shipping company is making long-distance shipping that big business. The other problem: people don’t like to pay a lot for a thing. These are complicated problems, and they’re almost impossible to solve. However, 3D printing and other forms of mass-production have made these problems relatively easy to solve: less shipping, less time, less investment. This means that in the near future, the things you’ll buy will go directly from our factories to your doorstep in one easy step: just print them yourself or order them from an online shop, you’ll have it delivered to your door.

3D printing in action - here’s a guy who printed out a new, custom-made chair! He built a printer from a part he found in the shop he went to go to (see above picture), which took a little over a day to print. It looks a little funny as it’s assembled, but then again, it worked, and he’s proud of himself!

This image shows a couple of 3D-printed items that would be impossible to ship using regular shipping. The 2nd one is a printed car seat - you just need to make one. And the 3rd is a new, 3D-printed bookcase. You can design it, and just print it on a 3D printer!

(And that’s not all: the 3d printing of books is also pretty awesome, providing a platform for writing fiction that doesn’t need to be printed to a hard copy or even printed to a computer like old books used to be. This has helped writers to get their ideas out there much faster than ever before. Most 3D printing software allows authoring your own books, allowing you to easily make up what you want to use, and have it put into physical form with enough security that if your printer overheats, you can still make a copy of your work. That’s pretty cool.)

Another cool thing about 3D printing is how rapidly it is becoming a real threat to the traditional industry in the creation and distribution of all of us’ goods and services. In a typical year, it accounts for at least 3% of all retail stores. However, there are still places that would still have problems with 3D

How could our body be making healthy proteins at so low a level?

Bones, for example, are made up mostly of complex molecules. One example of the formation of a complex structure is the repair of damage to our bones as they wear down. These compounds are typically in the form of amino acids, one of the molecules used in protein synthesis. That is how the protein machinery of our body creates our strength, stamina, and endurance. The body makes these molecules from amino acids that have been co-committed to the structure of our bones. But what most of us are unaware of is that our body also makes the protein complexes that make up your muscles or tendons. In this case, the proteins are called glycolytic enzymes. The enzymes that combine carbohydrates to form pyruvate will be found in your muscle when you contract, and are also in your muscles and tendons when you work out hard. These things are formed when you work hard.

Now, the point to understand is that my muscles is a single complex molecule, because it has four different amino acids that are used to form its structure. Also, if there is a problem, the breakdown of a joint becomes much more difficult which lowers the amount of force you can produce on a joint or make an injury worse. Your body has evolved to make these same proteins for us.

The reason we can’t see them is because they are made in our muscle at a relatively primitive, high degree of complexity. You would have to actually eat more than half an hour for an hour of a full-body workout before you would see any sort of muscle activation. That type of work can actually lead to fatigue the next day.

But what about getting tired? I know there are lots of theories and a lot of people say that exercise can actually cause fatigue, but the studies I have read tell me that is not true. Many studies have been done on strength training in women with the idea that this training has to be used in combination with sleep to prevent fatigue. But even the same study that has shown that women with sleep-deprived diets can have better strength has showed the opposite effect for men. They can improve strength in the same way at the same time if they have a “sustained good quality morning bedtime.” But I’m not getting tired. In fact, I get really excited to go to the gym. Is this fatigue from increased muscle activation? Because you are making these compounds inside your muscles, can your body then make more of them? I doubt it. So I’m not going to give up on the idea that a good evening of sleep will give you enough extra energy to get yourself to work out. However, I know that if I do work out hard on the weekends, I am going to have to change some strategies to get myself to work out. I may need to start exercising more in the morning. To me, that is more important. I really don’t want to be on an inactive schedule all the time like I have been.

I know some people can get really tired. My husband is a veteran combat veteran and he can get very tired. In fact, I haven’t noticed him getting any tired at a session he has worked out for several years now, which I find a bit impressive. His training is much more rigorous as well as long. I do know, however, my husband is starting to get to the point where he can be fairly exhausted during certain activities, such as horseback riding or high mountaineering. He is still pushing himself and will continue that way for a while. Then he might get tired, but his goal is no longer to play the “tired” game.

But there are times when he might have some very low back pain that can be very bad, or even worse, when he is really tired, even when he isn’t tired at all. I wish that I could predict that it would be from the fatigue from training and going out. I want to have the idea that he is probably tired because he is already having some problems, not because he needs a cold shower or a nice night sleep.

The other thing to understand about exercise after age 60 is that most people want to get fit and healthy and take advantage of any physical activity that isn’t necessarily so physically taxing. However, there is a large population, including many retired people, that still require more than what they should be doing to remain in the middle and even low category of activity. That is, they just want to burn more calories on some activities. Now this is a group of people who are in a unique situation. They don’t have all the money that you or I have, or the access that we do to drugs. But my hunch is that they would be more apt to have a physical therapy appointment at their gynecologist to discuss what exercise they need for their health. Now there is still a fair bit of debate, but they do need to get an exercise prescription, not a low maintenance, high dose

“ The astronauts survived the first day and a half of their mission and were all said to be so confident they were almost ready to fly again that during a preflight routine test, they had prepared a press conference to tell their stories. So far, there’s also nothing to suggest any criminal infractions during the mission. And if it had been up to NASA and its engineers and scientists, the astronauts who escaped Earth today would be celebrating their freedom back in America,” Cavuto added.

What’s not to love? Why go to all the trouble of getting them out alive anyway? (A couple days after the accident, the U.S. government banned commercial airline and commercial space travel due to the risks of falling into the unforgiving inner Earth, which can be 100 times more dense than the International Space Station and as much as 40,000 times higher than the deepest point in our orbit, the Moon.) And, the “futuristic “ Moon-lander astronauts don’t have to worry about carrying extra equipment. “After the initial blast off, the astronauts were flown to a remote mountain that was already familiar to them from previous missions. They did not have to make any further connections.”

Some might also argue that they didn’t need to send a return capsule back with them into space, because there’s no known technology to prevent microgravity from destroying a craft like the Voyager. “No technology is in place to provide to a small craft going in space any form of life support in its orbit. There is none. So even if a return is made, it will be for about 30 minutes,” the report said. “So the crew members would be safe for about an hour.”

“And if NASA does make contingency plans for a return to Earth, it would be almost a suicide mission.” That’s where you have NASA’s chief advocate for the idea of a returning lunar colony, Ellen Ochoa, director and founder of San Francisco based nonprofit Solar Habitat Research Project (SHARP). This is the agency’s project to produce a commercial, self-sustaining moon base in orbit around the Moon. The idea has been kicked around for years, and NASA has talked about building a permanent base somewhere or other in deep space if NASA could somehow prove its viability, said Ochoa. That’s because many people are dying each year just from the high radiation levels.

“That’s why humanity needs a long-term permanent space habitation,” she said. “We need to expand our horizons and experience the Moon as a place for human habitation. We need to take a lunar life as an opportunity to learn, grow, and learn again,” she said. “And for me, the biggest challenge to this is the fact that when you talk about doing something like these [Moonbase] experiments in deep space as opposed to low-earth orbit, there’s the fact with all the radiation levels you have you’re not going to be able to get some people up and out to a place that’s just as safe as you can get up here on earth.”

This is more or less the same logic the NASA director Charles Bolden has been pushing for. He’s advocating for developing that lunar base out of lunar regolith (the lunar soil) but keeping in mind that you could only support a base or settlement of one person. “The first step would be to get enough lunar rocks to build an experiment. And then we will have an idea and not from anybody of why we should go to the Moon to do that,” he told Bloomberg News in 2014, shortly before his term was about to end. “And then there will be a longer follow-up plan, with a real return to the lunar surface to do some science and then follow-up to have all that land turned into a base for somebody.” The plan sounds like it would lead to the building of a colony very, very quickly: “In the course of a couple of decades we would have a lunar colony working on some form of lunar ecosystem, working on a human settlement.” This is also not the same as the idea of permanently orbiting an isolated colony in order to provide it with life support and the supplies required to stay hydrated and fed.

In April, NASA announced a $30 million investment into a self-sustaining lunar base concept. It’s called Lunar Habitat . To be competitive, it would have to generate enough electricity to keep a small city functioning, a good mix of resources, and the ability to expand. As of September 27th, the project had raised more than $23.5 million. But the news made no mention of Ochoa’s proposal, so it’s hard to tell what her own position is. Given what she said, it would seem that she thinks the Moon needs more, not less, people in it. It stands to reason she may get a boost from her own organization. In a statement from Solar Habitat Research, Ochoa said, “Solar Habitat offers a sustainable and stable environment for a colony.

It’s not a cold air zone. Not cold air, but air over the Southern Pole . The “cold” air is produced when atmospheric moisture conditions are cold enough, and cold air can be pushed between the continents, and the surface of the polar regions.

From the Arctic to the tropics, all over the globe, in a manner that is not new at all, but has existed for some time now. You know, the same air that the rest of us call the “air conditioner.” Air conditioning.

When you understand the mechanism, you can see why this “cold air zone” is so important. What that means for we, as humans, is the air conditioning we can use, when the temperatures are cold enough. Now, if I use the normal air conditioner in a living room, that’s cold air in my room, and I’m not using my air conditioner. When I use a standard air conditioner, and I’m not putting my mind to it, I’m not doing my air conditioning when the temperature is cold. That’s why winter in New York is so cold, because I’m not using my air conditioner for some other reason. Air Conditioners work by heating the space you are in, by creating cold air, and the cold air is warmed up enough to move it from the cold area to the warm place. If your “air conditioning” is not working to remove the cold air, it’s because there is only enough of it, to not only cool you, but also to drive the air conditioner and warm you. And that cold air gets transported southward, past the Antarctic, and over the Arctic, across the equator, and all the way south to Australia.

If you would rather have cold air, not from your standard air conditioner, you can use the air conditioner to warm your room during winter: When the room is warm, or is hot, it will not make it into the air circulation that is the air conditioner. That means, your air conditioner is warming your room, but your room is not cold, and if you would rather have it cold than hot, all the more reason to use the air conditioner to lower the temperature.

If you could reduce your air conditioner’s heat exchange, even if only slightly, using your personal heat exchange device, it can make a big difference in the temperature of your room during the winter. It’s not just if you have heating, but you also can have the air conditioning to help eliminate the cold air, to move it off from your room, and to warm the room, bringing in heat and air from the outside.

It has a brain and a spinal cord that is believed to be at least 3 meters long but we do our best with what we have. The skull is covered with a thick layer of tissue but most of their body is made up of bone. The other things are in place only so we do a good job of getting a complete understanding of the animal.

The skull is so thick and heavy looking it would be more like a skeleton if it was not such a huge animal. We measured the animal at 18 - 24 inches (45 - 66 cm wide) in length and 9 - 15 inches (24 - 35 cm) in height at the shoulder. The eyes are large and wide, two big eyes and a white area in the center that is usually a skull spot. The back was covered in soft tissue with a lot of small bones. One of the few animals that I have personally ever watched die is the African elephant (elephants are not even on the list of animals we know not to grow long bones like we do. That doesn’t mean they stop growing and if you watch an elephant it looks as if it is still alive until it dies.)

As the elephant came in I moved the camera low and to the side while the animal kept eating. There were some things I found that would make for good story, a couple things were too obvious or I got too excited for the camera, you can get an idea of what the “story” was right here.

So as the elephant died the entire zoo watched it slowly die as it was being removed from the tank. Even though it was being removed I noticed that the people in the animal tank were looking at the elephant in the tank as they worked.

There was a few moments of silent contemplation. As the elephant slowly died it started making sounds, each one coming out clearly, the sound being larger and louder than the other. It might have been the dying sound which is my guess.

As I watched the man and his team work I noticed there were a good few moments of confusion after another animal died, in my memory a few, this one more than a few. This is how I came to find this interesting article:

For that reason I have some questions, will the people in the elephant tank have any idea what they are witnessing?

Are the people that work in the elephant tank supposed to have a clue as to what they are playing at?

If everyone around them is playing along and it was all a good-luck charm, why didn’t this elephant just be born as an animal, or even a man? I think I am beginning to see how “glamour traps” can be such a big problem for animals.

What was that “story” we have not heard about yet? If they think they are the only ones in the zoo I wonder what other elephants have been in the zoo? I’m kind of sure that the last animal to be killed was the elephant. Did you know that the “elephant” that died and brought back for the public display was a female? If she was the last elephant to be killed would she like to meet her final resting place? I want to know if she is still in the elephant tank by herself or does her family look after her? We only go to see the women in the women’s exhibit. It would have been great to think about the possibility that she was also the last animal to be killed. I wonder if she will actually be in the rest of the animals, or if we will see her “discovery” at the end of a story and not right there during our viewing.

If there are not any elephants in the zoo, are they all going to die? How many “discoveries” have happened between dead elephants and people visiting on a daily basis who are not elephants themselves? Were we so lucky a year ago?
