NASA’s MAVEN Mission Finds Mars Has a Twisted Tail

Mars has an invisible magnetic “tail” that is twisted by interaction with the solar wind, according to new research using data from NASA’s MAVEN spacecraft.

NASA’s Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution Mission (MAVEN) spacecraft is in orbit around Mars gathering data on how the Red Planet lost much of its atmosphere and water, transforming from a world that could have supported life billions of years ago into a cold and inhospitable place today. The process that creates the twisted tail could also allow some of Mars’ already thin atmosphere to escape to space, according to the research team.

“We found that Mars’ magnetic tail, or magnetotail, is unique in the solar system,” said Gina DiBraccio of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. “It’s not like the magnetotail found at Venus, a planet with no magnetic field of its own, nor is it like Earth’s, which is surrounded by its own internally generated magnetic field. Instead, it is a hybrid between the two.” DiBraccio is project scientist for MAVEN and is presenting this research at a press briefing Thursday, Oct. 19 at 12:15pm MDT during the 49th annual meeting of the American Astronomical Society’s Division for Planetary Sciences in Provo, Utah.

The team found that a process called “magnetic reconnection” must have a big role in creating the Martian magnetotail because, if reconnection were occurring, it would put the twist in the tail.

a collaboration with +Prasanna Kumar
(thank you Prasanna. It was truly a great experience working with you.)

holding palms of each other
lost ourselves in a depth of the moment
enveloped by the stygian glimmer
being free of space and time - bracelet

spark of love with dazzling effect kindled
embers of deep-rooted emotions
making aura scintillate with liveliness
like a gush of cold wind

that, tantalizes and nudges, deep thoughts
to forget and forgive, as small fissures
in the relationship can bring a havoc,
whispers of words in the ears- toxic,
ruin every genuine feeling turn into tragic

so come on!

let's take a resolution
and close our eyes, and dive into oblivion

to listen to the symphony
of distant light
enjoying the melody
of falling star, that strikes
deep into the abyss of heart, enlightening us

with a streak of white light within

let’s experience the feel and feelings as bliss
let's be united
like a yin-yang and entwine together
in carving a niche, to find
solace in the silence and stillness

the night passing by at snail's pace,
unraveling secrets to our dreamy eyes,
with a smile on our faces
the warmth of dazzling fire celebrates

our eternal union............!

Learn Something New Every Day

Most of us have one or two areas of knowledge that we strive to know very well — things related to our jobs, of course, and maybe a hobby or two. But while it’s important to develop a deep understanding of the things that matter most to us, it is just as important to develop a broad understanding of the world in general.

The beautiful Trifid Nebula is a cosmic study in contrasts. Also known as M20, it lies about 5,000 light-years away toward the nebula rich constellation Sagittarius. A star forming region in the plane of our galaxy, the Trifid does illustrate three different types of astronomical nebulae; red emission nebulae dominated by light from hydrogen atoms, blue reflection nebulae produced by dust reflecting starlight, and dark nebulae where dense dust clouds appear in silhouette. But the red emission region roughly separated into three parts by obscuring dust lanes is what lends the Trifid its popular name. Pillars and jets sculpted by newborn stars, below and left of the emission nebula's center, appear in famous Hubble Space Telescope close-up images of the region. The Trifid Nebula is about 40 light-years across. Just too faint to be seen by the unaided eye, it almost covers the area of the Moon in planet Earth's sky.

Survey Reveals Apple's Retail Stores Does Not Sell Many iPhones

A recent survey of 2,000 U.S. consumers who bought a major Apple product in the last year shows that almost four in ten Macs sold are purchased directly from Apple, either through the company’s retail store or its online store. However, the vast majority of iPhones and iPads are purchased somewhere other than Apple’s retail stores.

The CIRP survey found that just over 10% of iPhones were bought at the Apple store, with the bulk of sales going directly to carriers. It will come as no surprise to see that around three-quarters of iPhones are bought through carriers. Best Buy raked in about 5%, with the majority of those sales likely being of phone/plan combos sold on behalf of carriers.

Mrs. Clinton sees something, I don't see. She claims Trump's Tweets are dangerous. But there is no danger in his messages. The only thing he wanna to do to inform his American people, and he has the right to do this. Oh- and by the way she has broken her toe and it hurts her. Hopefully, she will recover very soon. Otherwise I have to fly directly to Mrs. Clinton and have to lotion her broken toe with a special cream. And of course I will brew her a camomile tea with lot of honey, and I will sing a beautiful melody for her. So that she will forget her broken toe.

If she would be alive today,
Ms. Carrie Fisher would complete 61 years old.

The daughter of Hollywood golden couple Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, Carrie Fisher was born in Beverly Hills in October 21, 1956. Her parents went on to divorce when she was two years old and her father married Elizabeth Taylor.

Having grown up in the limelight it was no surprise that Carrie opted for a career in showbiz. Her early appearances alongside her mother in Las Vegas when she was 12 years old stood her in good stead, and in 1973 she joined her mother again in the Broadway production of 'Irene'.

Having left the States for the UK, Carrie enrolled at London's Central School of Speech and Drama. Her first film appearance was in the comedy 'Shampoo' in 1975 starring Warren Beatty, Julie Christie and Goldie Hawn.

However, it was in 1977 that Carrie was rocketed to international stardom after landing the role of Princess Leia Organa in George Lucas's "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope". Also starring Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Alec Guinness, Star Wars was a critical and commercial phenomenon.

Carrie and her co-stars became overnight superstars and the subsequent merchandise saw their faces on everything from posters and plastic dolls to duvet covers and fluffy slippers. Carrie reprised her role in the equally successful sequels - "The Empire Strikes Back" in 1980 and "Return of the Jedi" in 1983.

While her career was soaring, Carrie’s personal life was becoming troubled as she battled an increasing addiction to alcohol and drugs. Following a brief engagement to Dan Aykroyd in 1980, she married singer Paul Simon in 1983. However, the marriage was not to last and ended some eight months later.

As her film career dwindled in the early 80's, Carrie turned her hand to writing, penning the semi-autobiographical "Postcards from the Edge". Published in 1987, it became a bestseller and she won the Los Angeles Pen Award for Best First Novel. The book was turned into the equally successful film of the same name starring Meryl Streep and Shirley MacLaine in 1990.

Although her performance in the hit film "When Harry Met Sally" was widely saluted by critics, Carrie began to devote her efforts to writing and over the subsequent years she released "Surrender the Pink", "Delusions of Grandma" and "The Best Awful". Carrie died on 27th December 2016, one day before her mother. Her final film, "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", is scheduled to be released on December 15, 2017.

After the huge success of "Star Wars" both critical and in the box office, giving birth to a new era cinema. George Lucas was already planning its sequel, but decided to divide his work with the director Irvin Kershner and screenwriters Lawrence Kasdan and Leigh Brackett, many fans were afraid (even with Lucas writing the story), but this group brought the saga to a all-new and unexplored level in "Empire Strikes Back".

Each scene and sequence moves the viewer closer and closer to a pivotal point where the characters are also paired as an influential unit relevant to a particular plot. Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo, which interconnect with the other pairs Han Solo/Luke Skywalker and Vader/Leia.

The flow of dialog from these characters help create a malleable cohesion as to help support the type of character in which they each portray; hero, villain, damsel in distress and rouge smuggler. Besides all that this space and time adventure brought the audience into the story and helped create a new mythical journey.

Character driven story. Great character arcs. One of the greatest twists and cliffhangers in movie history. Some truly iconic film moments. Those are the reasons why "Empire Strikes Back" is such a great film.

Honest Trailers does "Star Trek: The Next Generation"

To be fair, TNG ran for 178 episodes over 7 seasons, so there was plenty of time for bad episodes, repeated tropes, and odd character business that looks a lot more odd when repeated back to back.

But, for all the solid, good entertainment that came from TNG, this is a fun take-down of all of the above. (As well as some honest criticism, e.g., Worf being the punching bag of the galaxy.)
