Solar System: Things to Know This Week

Get the latest on women making history at NASA, our Juno mission, the Curiosity rover and move!

1. Women at NASA Making History, Creating the Future

Throughout Women’s History Month, we’ve been presenting profiles of the women who are leading the way in deep space exploration.

+ Meet some of them

2. Juno and the Giant

Our Juno spacecraft made its fifth close flyby over giant Jupiter’s mysterious cloud tops.

+ See the latest from the King of Planets

3. When the Road Gets Rough, the Tough Keep Rolling

A routine check of the aluminum wheels on our Curiosity Mars rover has found two small breaks on the rover’s left middle wheel tread–the latest sign of wear and tear as the rover continues its journey, now approaching the 10-mile (16 kilometer) mark. But there’s no sign the robotic geologist won’t keep roving right through its ongoing mission.

+ Get the full report

4. What Do Mars and Dinosaurs Have in Common?

Our research reveals that volcanic activity at the giant Martian volcano Arsia Mons ceased about 50 million years ago, around the time of Earth’s Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction, when large numbers of plant and animal species (including dinosaurs) went extinct. However, there’s no reason to think the two events were more than a cosmic coincidence.

+ Learn how scientists pieced together the past

5. A Comet in Commotion

Images returned from the European Space Agency’s Rosetta mission indicate that during its most recent trip through the inner solar system, the surface of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko was a very active place – full of growing fractures, collapsing cliffs and massive rolling boulders.

+ See the many faces of Comet #67P

6. Next Generation Space Robot is Ingenious, Versatile–and Cute

The next rovers to explore another planet might bring along a scout. The Pop-Up Flat Folding Explorer Robot (PUFFER) in development at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory was inspired by origami. Its lightweight design is capable of flattening itself, tucking in its wheels and crawling into places rovers can’t fit.


7. Shadowy Dawn

According to data from our Dawn mission to Ceres, shadowed craters on the dwarf planet may be linked to the history of how the small world has been tilted over time by the gravity of planets like Jupiter.

+ Find out how understanding “cycles of obliquity” might solve solar system mysteries

8. On Orbit and Online

We’re developing a  long-term technology demonstration project of what could become the high-speed internet of the sky. The Laser Communications Relay Demonstration (LCRD) will help engineers understand the best ways to operate laser communications systems, which could enable much higher data rates for connections between spacecraft and Earth, such as scientific data downlink and astronaut communications.

+ See how it will work

9. A Big Role for Small Sats in Deep Space Exploration

We selected 10 studies to develop mission concepts using CubeSats and other kinds of very small satellites to investigate Venus, Earth’s moon, asteroids, Mars and the outer planets. “These small but mighty satellites have the potential to enable transformational science,” said Jim Green, director of NASA’s Planetary Science Division.

+ Get the small details

10. Rings Around the Red Planet?

It’s possible that one of our closest neighbors had rings at one point – and may have them again someday. At least, that’s the theory put forth by NASA-funded scientists at Purdue University.

+ See more details about the once and future rings of Mars

Yes Sir Part 4- The Lecture

Yes Sir by evansrogerskitten 
Part 4: The Lecture

Sexual tension is high as Professor Winchester and Reader attend a school event. Hiding their feelings turns out to be a powerful aphrodisiac.

Series Masterlist

Warnings: Explicit Smut. Fluff. NSFW. Language, multiple orgasms, oral sex, dirty talk, anal play, fingering, John being super hot. WC: 4562 On AO3 Images aren’t mine but I sure as hell appreciate their creators. 

A/N: This is for @impalaimagining‘s Sam Winchester’s Birthday Challenge. (Sorry Sammy, your dad took over the prompt LOL Happy Bday tho, love ya) Song prompt is Are You Gonna Be My Girl by Jet, which ending up inspiring the last scene. Thank you to everyone that has commented, reblogged, liked this series! Without your encouragement I wouldn’t be writing it. xoxo Enjoy :) 

“Oh look, Professor hottie is here.”

I turned away from my friend Jo’s teasing comment and looked up the aisle. People milled about in the hallway and auditorium, a quiet hum of voices filling the open space. But between all of that was Professor Winchester.

@lorax177 reblogged your photoset and added:

you forgot the scene where ryuuko’s wearing senketsu and satsuke is trying to get her to resist

Hm, which scene are you referring to?

For this set I was only looking for moments where Satsuki specifically says, “Snap out of it!” (or しっかりしろ) to Ryuko, and I believe I caught them all.

I know Senketsu says something similar (“Stop it, Ryuko!”) when Ryuko wears Junketsu, but I don’t think Satsuki says anything of the sort?

The Grand Theft Auto franchise is best known for letting you run over hookers and then shoot them with bazookas from your jetpack, but today’s gamers get bored with that sort of thing after just a couple hundred hours. So, it didn’t take long for players to start one-upping each other with increasingly radical/deranged in-game stunts, which often require hundreds to thousands of attempts and a comparable quantity of Mountain Dew.

Consider the above clip, which display a level of vehicular control unseen since the days of legal drinking and driving.

These and similar clips are Blacksmoke Billy’s, which isn’t an alternative lifestyles hangout, but a YouTube channel devoted to some of the most insane and elaborate tricks you’ll see in the virtual world. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Tricks range from things you could probably do yourself after a few beers, to figuring out how to jump a motorbike onto a fighter jet, presumably the inspiration for and primary plot point in the upcoming Fast And Furious 8: The Fastererest And Furiousestmost.

6 Impossible Video Game Stunts Someone Pulled Off Anyway

Hey, remember when Insomniac Games were inspired by Jet Set Radio to make Sunset Overdrive?

Yeah, am I the only one who wants them to just make a brand new Jet Set Radio game for modern consoles? We lost the chance from a Crazy Taxi reboot from Blackrock Studios, but this could totally rock if done right.

I just wanted to pop in and thank you for being such a wonderful person and always being able to put a smile on my face even in the darkest of times. You, elliot, jet and darby inspire me to cosplay and helped me through a lot. Stay beautiful Fox

Awh thank you, Anon! You are so kind to take the time to write that! I hope your dark times are behind you or at least getting easier for you. Those are never fun and can sometimes be hard to move past. Stay strong!

Stay beautiful as well! <3
