A new Landsat satellite launched earlier this year will add its leading-edge cameras to the project. A public filing on March 29 reported SunEdison is facing “substantial risk” of bankruptcy, SunEdison isn’t the only renewable energy giant in trouble. We have baked racist imagery so. COMMISSIONERS REGULAR MEETING. The Hancock County Commissioners will meet at a.m. on Tuesday, September 13, in the conference room at the county courthouse in Ellsworth, ME.

Goldman Sachs doubles number of losing days last quarter compared to year earlier bloom. Look-alike inflatable tanks are meant to act as decoy targets for enemy weapon systems, helping to protect real military hardware from destruction.
The Rusbal tanks contain simulators that produce radar and thermal radiation, which closely mimic the signature of actual Russian tanks. Airtight material covers the simulators, power units and fans over a thin frame, all of which is inflated in under 10 minutes. Rusbal has been making inflatable products since with their most sophisticated products going to their Russian military clients.

May 10 The star, TW Hydrae, is a popular target of study for astronomers because of its proximity to Earth approximately light-years away and its status as a veritable newborn about 10 million years old.
It also has a face-on orientation as seen from Earth. This affords astronomers a rare, undistorted view of the complete disk. The image above right is the inner section of that disk, showing the gap at one astronomical unit, or about million miles from the star, the same as the distance of the Earth from the Sun.
Essentially, this relatively close star system is providing us a perfect opportunity to study the formation of a solar system not unlike our own. In the heat of competition: A state judge has denied a request by Broadcom for a temporary injunction to block the five engineers hired from that company by SpaceX from doing work during the lawsuit.
The article includes further information, including details from one of the poached employees, justifying and explaining their job move. The competition heats up? He did, however, say that investors from the U. And should the buyer use the Ukrainian Zenit rocket that the platform was designed to use, the technical problems might be reduced as well. An evening pause: Performed live on the television show Shindig! Be sure to read the notes about this song and group at the youtube link.
The article above begins by focusing on how the university president has backed down from his original willingness to support the squelching of free speech. I suspect this pressure from alumni, who with most universities provide a great deal of financial support, is making him rethink his positions.
Your tax dollars at work! The U. It was the 13th most heavily-subsidized company in America. The competition really heats up! Lockheed Martin has recently exploited this advance to manufacture powerful new weapons for the US Army. In March last year, the aerospace and defense giant demonstrated a 30 kW laser weapon and its devastating effect on a truck. While even a small laser array could accelerate probes of all sizes, the larger GW system would of course be the most powerful, capable of generating enough thrust to send a CubeSat probe to Mars in eight hours — or a much larger 10,kg 22,lb craft to the same destination in a single month, down from a typical six to eight.
Further upgrades would make it possible to send a cubesate and its lightsail to Alpha Centuri in about fifteen years. The important point here is that it appears that all the technology for building this already exists, or is relatively straightforward to develop. Even as I am appearing on Coast to Coast, John Batchelor has just posted the podcast for my appearance tonight on his show, embedded below the fold. I probably should have noted this earlier, but I am about to begin another two hour stint on Coast to Coast with George Noory.
Should, as always, be a lot of fun. Fascists: Democratic attorney generals from 16 states announced today that they plan on investigating and prosecuting companies for fraud if they dare express any skepticism about global warming. We want to expose it and want to pursue them to the fullest extent of the law. The concept of dissent and debate increasingly appears completely foreign to liberal, leftwing politicians and activists.
Disagree with them in any way, and they think that gives them the right to destroy you. Killing competition: The American launch industry as well as the FAA regulators are in agreement that a law that limits American small satellite companies from using foreign launch companies should remain in place. It seeks to oblige non-U.
The rationale is that these non-U. The fear is that India could subsidize its rockets so that the price could always be kept below what any American company could charge. The truth, however, is that competition and innovation, here in the U.
Those foreign companies are now scrambling to actually redesign their rockets to lower their costs and thus their prices, rather than asking for more handouts from their governments. This law should be repealed. On March 17 two different amateur astronomers have taken videos of a bright flash on Jupiter which suggests something had crashed into the gas giant.
That was followed by three lesser strikes on June 3, recorded independently by Wesley and Christopher Go ; on August 10, independently seen by Masayuki Tachikawa and Kazuo Aoki ; and on September 10, seen visually by Dan Petersen and independently recorded by George Hall. The Air Force has concluded that the Japanese X-ray telescope was not hit by debris, and that its problem was thus likely caused by some internal engineering failure.
