The Veterans Administration has gone digital! I received this gadget today from VA Palo Alto and it will allow my VA Palo Alto doctor (635 miles away) to remotely monitor my daily health and also deliver video messages and health/wellness content. I can also reply to "questions" from the doctor. It is tied to my VA electronic health record and brings the doctor's office to my home office. Device by ExpressMD Solutions. #health   #wellness   #veterans   #gadgets

You can still catch this NASA Hangout live in a few minutes from Yuma Proving Ground in Yuma Arizona!
If you are having trouble viewing the Hangout, try watching it on YouTube here: Join NASA for one of the Orion Spacecraft's Most Difficult Parachute Tests --

Join us to watch a Google+ Hangout from the U.S. Army's Yuma Proving Ground in Arizona from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. EDT July 24, as an Orion test capsule is dropped from a plane at 35,000 feet to evaluate its parachutes.
During the event, you will see one of Orion's most difficult parachute tests to date and hear from NASA and Army team members involved. Engineers will simulate a failure of one of the spacecraft's three main parachutes, releasing it before Orion has landed.
Exploration Flight Test-1, an uncrewed test of the spacecraft that will send Orion 3,600 miles away from Earth, is scheduled for September 2014. Orion's parachutes are being tested to ensure they can slow the capsule for a safe landing in the Pacific Ocean as the spacecraft reenters Earth's atmosphere from deep space missions at speeds of up to 20,000 mph.

Want to ask a Question? Submit questions on Google+ or Twitter in advance and during the event using the hashtag #askOrion. Before the Hangout begins, we will open a comment thread on the NASA Facebook page where questions may be posted.
