NASA's Mars 2020 Rover Artist's Concept #1

This artist's concept depicts NASA's Mars 2020 rover on the surface of Mars.

The mission takes the next step by not only seeking signs of habitable conditions on Mars in the ancient past, but also searching for signs of past microbial life itself.

The Mars 2020 rover introduces a drill that can collect core samples of the most promising rocks and soils and set them aside on the surface of Mars. A future mission could potentially return these samples to Earth.

Mars 2020 is targeted for launch in July/August 2020 aboard an Atlas V 541 rocket from Space Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory will build and manage operations of the Mars 2020 rover for the NASA Science Mission Directorate at the agency's headquarters in Washington.

For more information about the mission, go to https://mars.nasa.gov/mars2020/.

What’s New In Social: Pinterest brings full dish recognition to its Lens camera search and adds star ratings to recipes

What?
Pinterest introduces new features designed to help people find recipes they will strongly connect with and receive recommendations from people who have tried the recipes.

Lens camera search:
Point your phone lens at an entire dish, and Pinterest will provide copycat recipes to recreate the dish. This feature is an unexpected update that taps into visual search technology.

Ratings:
Recipes will now include star ratings from sites like epicurious, Martha Stewart, and Food Network.

Filtered searches:
Pinterest introduced more filters to its recipe searches, giving users more opportunity to find recipes for foods that are currently stocked in their kitchen.

Why?
Recipes are Pinterest’s bread and butter. People search for and try more food ideas on Pinterest than any other category. According to Pinterest, food is one of the top categories on Pinterest—with over 15 billion ideas and counting

Industries likely to benefit?
Entertainment entities like Top Chef and Iron Chef America are poised to benefit from this update. Beverage brands like Dry Sparkling who have a “DRY (Soda) PAIRING GENERATOR“ on their website are strategically positioned to benefit from this update. Lexus (Lexus Master Chefs) could use this update to tap into and connect with an untraditional automotive audience.

What's New In Social: Instagram tests 'archive' feature.

What?

Instagram is testing an ‘archive’ feature, allowing users and brands to archive posts and bring them back to their public profile at a later date. Archived posts will be stored in a separate place and accessible on the user’s profile, designated with a clock icon. In this new feature, posts can be archived by tapping on the ellipsis or “…” to the top right of each post and clicking the archive option.

Why?

Archiving posts is a more gentle alternative to deleting posts. On an individual level, the next time a person has a fallout with a friend, instead of deleting photos they can simply archive them.  This update is also beneficial for anyone who initially began using Instagram to as a novice to showcase a specific talent. For example, a fitness coach will have the ability to delete their earlier posts from before their fitness or demonstration skills were more refined.

Industries likely to benefit?

This is a big WIN for all Brands and individual users. This bodes well for Brands who post attention-grabbing tiled photos or celebratory videos that are no longer necessary and individuals who are tempted to post selfies or product promotions for online giveaways.

Erosion of the Edge of the South Polar Layered Deposits

This image is an oblique view from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter of the sloping edge of the stack of icy layers over the South Pole has some interesting morphologies.

The slope appears to be eroding from a combination of landslides, block falls, and sublimation. The bright icy exposure in the larger landslide scar (upper right) suggests that this was a relatively recent event.

Small-scale textures over the scene are due to both blowing wind and the thermal expansion and contraction of shallow ice.

The University of Arizona, Tucson, operates HiRISE, which was built by Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp., Boulder, Colo. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of Caltech in Pasadena, California, manages the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter Project for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington.

Slim Crescent of Ice

The low angle of sunlight along the slim crescent of Saturn's moon Enceladus (313 miles or 504 kilometers across) highlights the many fractures and furrows on its icy surface.

The Cassini mission is a cooperative project of NASA, ESA (the European Space Agency) and the Italian Space Agency. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, manages the mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington. The Cassini orbiter and its two onboard cameras were designed, developed and assembled at JPL. The imaging operations center is based at the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colorado.

Short Shadows

The projection of Saturn's shadow on the rings grows shorter as Saturn's season advances toward northern summer, thanks to the planet's permanent tilt as it orbits the sun. This will continue until Saturn's solstice in May 2017. At that point in time, the shadow will extend only as far as the innermost A ring, leaving the middle and outer A ring completely free of the planet's shadow.

Over the course of NASA's Cassini mission, the shadow of Saturn first lengthened steadily until equinox in August 2009. Since then, the shadow has been shrinking. These changes can be seen by comparing the shadow in the above view to its appearance as Cassini approached Saturn in 2004 (PIA06077), equinox in 2009 (PIA11667), and two years ago, in 2015 (PIA20498).

This view looks toward the sunlit side of the rings from about 10 degrees above the ring plane. The image was taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft wide-angle camera on Feb. 3, 2017.

Manage your Melatonin Level Naturally

Melatonin production rises as the sun sets and continues throughout the night. When daylight hits the retina, neural impulses cause production of melatonin to slow. Light and darkness are major factors for melatonin production. However, there are few simple strategies that can help you control your melatonin levels.

Eat regular meals. The rhythm of melatonin production is strengthened by regular daily routines. Keep your mealtimes as regular as possible to keep your body in sync with the rhythms of the day.

Keep your diet at light. When melatonin production begins after nightfall, the digestive process slows down. Heavy foods eaten close to bedtime may lead to digestive interruptions which can make it difficult to sleep. Aim to eat small, light meals late in the evening.

Avoid stimulants. Common stimulants like coffee, tea, soft drinks, and caffeine-containing medications can interfere with melatonin production by interfering with sleep. Eliminate these stimulants from your diet and lifestyle.

Avoid exercising late at night. Vigorous activity delays melatonin secretion. Exercising in the morning will reinforce healthful sleeping habits that lead to melatonin production. For best results, do morning exercises outdoors in the morning light.

Two Prominences Unraveling

At the edge of the sun, a large prominence and a small prominence began to shift, turn and fall apart in less than one day (May 8-9, 2017). Prominences are notoriously unstable. Competing magnetic forces pulled the plasma back and forth until they dissipated. The images were taken in a wavelength of extreme ultraviolet light.

SDO is managed by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland, for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington. Its Atmosphere Imaging Assembly was built by the Lockheed Martin Solar Astrophysics Laboratory (LMSAL), Palo Alto, California.

Jovian Cloud Tops

This enhanced color view of Jupiter's cloud tops was processed by citizen scientist Bjorn Jonsson using data from the JunoCam instrument on NASA's Juno spacecraft. The image highlights a massive counterclockwise rotating storm that appears as a white oval in the gas giant's southern hemisphere.

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory manages the Juno mission for the principal investigator, Scott Bolton, of Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio. Juno is part of NASA's New Frontiers Program, which is managed at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, for NASA's Science Mission Directorate. Lockheed Martin Space Systems, Denver, built the spacecraft. Caltech in Pasadena, California, manages JPL for NASA.
