A United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket with NASA’s Mars Science Lab (MSL) rover Curiosity rolls out to its Space Launch Complex-41 launch pad arriving at 8:40 a.m. EST Saturday.

The U.S. space agency is set to launch the newest of its Mars rovers Saturday on a two-year mission to find places where life may have existed on the red planet.

NASA’s $2.5 billion Mars Science Laboratory, known as Curiosity, is to be launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida on an unmanned rocket.  The size of a car, the rover has 17 cameras, a robotic arm, a laser, and a drill to break through the planet’s rock.
The rover is expected to reach Mars in August.  The intended landing site is a 150-kilometer-wide depression called Gale Crater, named for Australian astronomer Walter Gale.

The crater’s geological features include many places where scientists believe water may have once flowed, as well as a high, broad mountain that mission managers say will be a main focus.  The scientists have said the rover’s mission will help reveal secrets of Mars’ environmental history.

The NASA scientists say the rover’s instruments will be used to study whether the landing region had favorable conditions for supporting microbial life.  They say Curiosity will not be on a life-detection mission and will not be searching for fossils.

The six-wheeled Curiosity is the largest of the rovers NASA has sent to Mars.  The 900-kilogram rover is about two meters tall and two meters long and wide.  It is about twice the size of previous rovers Spirit and Opportunity.

9/11: Explosive Evidence -- Experts Speak Out
by Architects & Engineers for 911 Truth

The 43 technical experts interviewed in Experts Speak Out lay out the case for controlled demolition from their individual areas of expertise in hi-rise architecture, structural engineering, metallurgy, chemistry, physics, and controlled demolition. The seeming implausibility of the implications of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers being demolished with explosives is also handled quite skillfully in the film, as eight experts in psychology discuss the difficulties many people have in confronting the myth-shattering reality. This is a newly released DVD.

Reviews: Excellent Item for Travel, Backpacking, Camping, Etc.

This radio is a great little investment. It does exactly everything it states it should. On a 60 second crank I got hours of play. I ran the radio completely dead by leaving the light on and the radio playing at half column. I let the radio play like this with the light on for at least an hour before it went dead. I then put it out in the sun and let it charge with the solar charger for about four hours and then turned the radio on and let it play for only about an hour and then just didn't want to complete the experiment. I am very pleased with this radio. 60 seconds of cranking for hours of play is very reasonable. Letting it charge out in the sun and getting hours of play is very reasonable. I have other brands like this in the past that you would crank for 5 to 10 and get maybe 10 minutes of play.

The USB charge does work, but know that it will not charge an iPhone 3Gs. This is more a problem/restriction of the iPhone 3Gs (a widely discussed complaint across the Internet for many-many generic charging devices) and is not because of the radio. Charging my old Samsung phone was not a problem.

Capitalism: A Love StoryCapitalism: A Love Story. On the 20-year anniversary of his groundbreaking masterpiece "Roger & Me," Michael Moore's "Capitalism: A Love Story" comes home to the issue he's been examining throughout his career: the disastrous impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans. But this time the culprit is much bigger than General Motors, and the crime scene is far wider than Flint, Michigan.
