What has happened to Mars’ atmosphere? Scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory may have the answer.

Curiosity—NASA’s one-ton rover—has returned some interesting findings through the use of its SAM (Sample Analysis at Mars) instrument. One of SAM’s abilities is to take samples by “inhaling” content from the Martian atmosphere. Once inside, SAM can concentrate certain gases, separate them into their different isotopes and measure how much of each still exists on the surface of Mars.

In particular, Curiosity isolated and measured two isotopes of argon—argon-36 and argon-38. Argon, being a noble gas, is unable to bond easily with other elements making it a very observable element when analyzing samples.

Comparing the two isotopes of Argon, Curiosity found about four times as much of the lighter argon-36 than the heavier argon-38, removing uncertainty from previous measurements conducted in 1976 from NASA’s Viking lander. 

The ratio of argon that currently exists on Mars is much different from the ratio that currently exists at Earth, Jupiter and the Sun, supporting the theory that much of Mars’ previously thick atmosphere has been lost into space.

What does all of this matter to those of us on Earth?

Understanding the past and present composition of Mars’ atmosphere can be crucial to understanding the future of our atmosphere here on Earth. After all, Mars’ atmosphere was once very similar to Earth’s!

The folks at NASA—both human and robotic—continue to do excellent work to explain some of the incredible phenomena that occur all across the solar system! Let Congress know you support them through our PopVox widget at http://www.penny4nasa.org/take-action/

The Sad Face of American Business: How Arm & Hammer Laundry Detergent Rips Off Its Customers

Recently, I couldn't find my normal laundry detergent, so I bought the Arm & Hammer brand instead.  I was immediately struck by the enormous scoop provided in the box.  Take a look at the photo below.

While trumpeting the concentrated power of their detergent, which allows you to "use 1/3 less", they provide a scoop that, at minimum, uses 2x the amount needed, and quite possibly, 9x the amount!  The amount recommended for normal use is shown by a tiny line at the bottom of the scoop.  (I've put in some detergent - incidentally, equal to a full scoop from my normal detergent, Citra Suds - to help show the location of the line.) For "large or heavily soiled loads" they recommend another line about halfway up the scoop.  There is no recommended amount that calls for a full scoop.

This represents nothing less than theft.  The casual contempt for customers is shocking. "You won't notice if we rip you off!"

This is one more example of what Umair Haque calls "thin value" - the way that companies boost their bottom line without providing real value to customers, or, in this case, by stealing it from them. (Harvard Business Review: http://blogs.hbr.org/haque/2009/07/the_value_every_business_needs.html).

It was this kind of thinking that led to the financial crisis, as banks focused relentlessly on profits and their own bonuses rather than on creating real value.

(In this regard, I highly recommend the book The Shareholder Value Myth http://www.amazon.com/The-Shareholder-Value-Myth-Shareholders/dp/1605098132, which focuses on how putting corporate profits first in the name of "shareholder value" ends up harming not only the public and corporate employees, but shareholders themselves.)

P.S. For those commenting, this post isn't really about laundry detergent. It's about a business culture that condones and even encourages deception as a way of boosting profits. I'm interested in hearing about other examples where companies rip off their customers in similar ways, by getting them to use more of a product than they need. Or other ripoffs.

I'm on a campaign to get companies thinking more about making money by providing value to customers, and avoiding gimmicks. The banking crisis was all about an economy of gimmicks, but the mindset that brought us those problems is far more widespread.  It has to change.
