NASA's EPIC View of 2017 Eclipse Across America
Animation of DSCOVR satellite's observations of moon's shadow on Earth's surface

From a million miles out in space, NASA’s Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC) captured 12 natural color images of the moon’s shadow crossing over North America on Aug. 21, 2017.

EPIC is aboard NOAA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR), where it photographs the full sunlit side of Earth every day, giving it a unique view of total solar eclipses. EPIC normally takes about 20 to 22 images of Earth per day, so this animation appears to speed up the progression of the eclipse.

Bradley Walsh tapped to be the next Doctor's Companion

It's not surprising that, given the First-Ever Female Doctor (Jodie Whittaker), her Companion would be cast with a male actor. Reading the early morning news from the UK, there seems to be a fair amount of panic in the streets over this one, as Walsh seems most known [1] for his roles in the soap Coronation Street and for his work as a footballer and comedian in the past and as a game show host and singer more recently.

Me, I know him mostly from his work on Law & Order UK, which Chris Chibnall (the new Who showrunner) was the lead writer for, and he did an excellent job in the Jerry Orbach analog role. He can do drama and take things seriously as needed (and I do hope that's more the approach they take). (Actually, knowing Chibnall did L&OUK also adds further confidence in the next era for the Doctor.)

Research reveals that nutrients that benefit the brain are naturally good for the heart as well. And this is primarily because the brain requires around 20% of the entire blood pumped by the heart in order to obtain a sufficient supply of energy and fuel. And this proves that if the heart is not healthy and fortified, the brain cells will not be able to continue their optimal functioning.

Here, take a look at the star ingredients of the MIND diet that will help energize your brain, heart and the rest of your body

1. You’re Playing the Divide and Conquer Game

HINODE Observations

Hinode scientists plan to observe the Aug. 21, 2017 total solar eclipse over the course of at least two orbits.

Hinode is a spacecraft designed to observe the solar surface and corona in X-ray light. It is located in a low-Earth (about 400 miles or 630 km altitude), sun-synchronous polar orbit that permits nearly continuous observations of the sun. Since its launch in 2006, the spacecraft has been able to take amazing images of our moon passing across the face of the sun. The images enable scientists to develop an improved model of the telescope performance. On May 20, 2012, Hinode took this spectacular image of a solar eclipse with its X-Ray Telescope (XRT), revealing the inner regions of the sun’s million-degree corona and a glimpse of its active photosphere.
