Lockheed Martin Proposes Manned Mission to the Dark Side of the Moon


Lockheed Martin's Proposed L2-Farside Mission Lockheed Martin
_____________________________________________________________________________________
The Obama administration may have axed NASA’s ambitious manned moon exploration plans for even an even more ambitious deep space exploration agenda, but for those developing the technologies that will one day take us to deep space the moon is just too ripe a testing ground to ignore. Lockheed Martin is pitching NASA what’s being called an L2-Farside Mission that would launch a manned Orion spacecraft into a stationary halo orbit on the other side of the moon.

The mission, Lockheed says, will serve several purposes. Most immediately, it would allow astronauts to study, via unmanned robots, some lunar real estate that hasn’t been seen with human eyes since the Apollo missions. But its real function is to test out technologies and skills that will be necessary to make a manned trip to an asteroid, and then on to Mars.

The idea is to park an Orion space capsule at the L2 Lagrange point about 40,000 miles above the moon’s far side, where the combined gravity from the Earth and the moon would allow the spacecraft to essentially hover in one place in sync with the moon

Lockheed isn’t going anywhere by itself. To get to the Lagrange point without resorting to a complicated multi-rocket scheme, Lockheed needs NASA to supply a new heavy lift launch vehicle – something that the space agency is working on but doesn’t have on the shelf. It a new heavy lifter does materialize, Lockheed sees an L2-Farside mission feasible as early as 2016.

Oxygen found on Saturn's moon Rhea

Nasa's Cassini probe has scooped oxygen from the thin atmosphere of Rhea – the first time the gas has been detected directly on another world.

A spacecraft has tasted oxygen in the atmosphere of another world for the first time while flying low over Saturn's icy moon, Rhea.
Nasa's Cassini probe scooped oxygen from the thin atmosphere of the planet's moon while passing overhead at an altitude of 97km in March this year.

Until now, wisps of oxygen have only been detected on planets and their moons indirectly, using the Hubble space telescope and other major facilities.

Instruments aboard Cassini revealed an extremely thin oxygen and carbon dioxide atmosphere that is sustained by high-energy particles slamming into the moon's surface and kicking up atoms, molecules and ions.

Astronomers have counted 62 moons orbiting Saturn. At 1500km wide, Rhea is the second largest and is thought to be made almost entirely of ice.

Whipped Cream Causes Buzz with splash of alcohol...Get Whipped



_______________________________________________________________________________________
.
A new cocktail topping is grabbing attention... of consumers and regulators alike.


It's alcohol-infused whipped cream.


It's not kept in the refrigerator, but on liquor-store shelves.


It contains about 15-percent alcohol. That is a little more that what's found in most wines and about three times more than beer.


The boozy treat is being sold in several states but could go nationwide.


Store owners in Boston say the alcohol-spiked whipped cream is extremely popular.


The Boston Herald reports that the Massachusetts Alcohol Beverages Commission will be keeping its eye on the product.
_______________________________________________________________________________________
The federal government ordered the makers of Four Loko to change its dangerous combination of caffeine and alcohol to something safer. However, it's not just beverages getting the controversial boost, its whipped cream too.

It might look like a regular can of whipped cream, but if you take a closer look at the label, you'll see why some university students are really buzzing about whipped lightning.

The whipped treat comes in different flavors, and it's infused with alcohol. The alcohol content is fairly high, 18 percent by volume, that's more than three times the amount found in most beers.

Shelby Winkelmann named to girls' high school All-America team - Hermann Missouri




____________________________________________________________________________________

Shelby Winkelmann has been selected to the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) 5th annual Under Armour Girls High School All-America Team, it was announced last Wednesday.
 

Winkelmann, a four-time first team all-stater from Hermann who recently signed with Nebraska, is one of four high school players from Missouri to receive All-America honors. She was named to the second team, along with Tara Dykstra of Redondo Beach, Calif., who will be her teammate at Nebraska. All three Husker recruits were on the All-America list. Taylor Simpson, 6-3 outside hitter of Doharty High School in Colorado Springs, Colo., was named to the first team.
 

The only player from Missouri on the first team is Jade Hayes of Ozark, a 6-foot outside hitter who will attend the University of Missouri.
 

Two players from St. Joseph Academy in St. Louis, this year's Class 4 state champion, were on the AVCA All-America team. They are Helen Boyle, a 5-11 outside hitter who will attend LSU, and Taylor Masterson, a 6-foot middle blocker who will attend Alabama.
 

Winkelmann played in four state volleyball tournaments, and the Lady Bearcats won the state championship this year and in 2008. The 5-9 outside hitter will be used as a libero and defensive specialist at Nebraska.
 

The 100 players selected for this year's All-America honor teams represent 31 states and 87 high schools. Many have already committed to play collegiate volleyball at some of the top programs in the country.
 

Each of the players on the first team will be invited to play in the Under Armour All-America Volleyball Match & Skills Competition. The event will be held at Municipal Auditorium, December 18 in Kansas City, Mo., in conjunction with the 2010 AVCA Annual Convention.
 

Requirements for nomination were that the student-athlete be in her senior year of high school, that she be nominated by her high school coach, that her coach be a member of the AVCA and that her individual season statistics versus all opponents for the entire season be entered into MaxPreps, a free service that aggregates and distributes data on high school sports.

Kentucky's 'King of Pot' on lam 2 years after giant raid...also Willie Nelson Busted (Video)


___________________________________________________________________________________

With authorities closing in to seize 2,400 marijuana plants on John Robert Boone's farm two years ago, the legendary Kentucky outlaw vanished like a puff of smoke. The prolific grower has been dodging the law ever since, his folk-hero status growing with every sale of a "Run, Johnny, Run" T-shirt and click on his Facebook fan page.

Tracking down the fugitive who resembles a tattooed Santa Claus has proven as hard as "trying to catch a ghost" for the federal authorities canvassing tightlipped residents among the small farms in a rural area southeast of Louisville. Boone, who's trying to avoid the life sentence he would get if convicted a third time of growing pot, has plenty of sympathizers in an area where many farmers down on their luck have planted marijuana.

He spent more than a decade in federal prison after being convicted in the late 1980s of taking part in what federal prosecutors called the "largest domestic marijuana syndicate in American history," a string of 29 farms in Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas and Wisconsin.

The group became known as the "Cornbread Mafia" and Boone was tagged by prosecutors as their leader, earning him the nicknames "King of Pot" and "Godfather of Grass." Eventually, 70 Kentuckians were accused of growing 182 tons of marijuana.

U.S. Government Seizes BitTorrent Search Engine Domain - also shut down 75+ web sites...


_____________________________________________________

Following on the heels of this week’s domain seizure of a large hiphop file-sharing links forum, it’s clear today that the U.S. Government has been very busy. Without any need for COICA, ICE has just seized the domain of a BitTorrent meta-search engine along with those belonging to other music linking sites and several others which appear to be connected to physical counterfeit goods.

While complex, it’s still possible for U.S. authorities and copyright groups to point at a fully-fledged BitTorrent site with a tracker and say “that’s an infringing site.” When one looks at a site which hosts torrents but operates no tracker, the finger pointing becomes quite a bit more difficult.
When a site has no tracker, carries no torrents, lists no copyright works unless someone searches for them and responds just like Google, accusing it of infringement becomes somewhat of a minefield – unless you’re ICE Homeland Security Investigations that is.

This morning, visitors to the Torrent-Finder.com site are greeted with an ominous graphic which indicates that ICE have seized the site’s domain.

Bottled-water scam finally feels squeeze


__________________________________________________________________________________
WE DON’T MISS the water when the cash runs dry. Bottled water, that is. That refreshing news came recently as Nestle reported nearly a 5 percent drop in bottled water sales in North America and Western Europe. That company bottles water under the familiar names of Poland Spring, Perrier, S. Pellegrino, and Deer Park.

Pepsi’s Aquafina and Coke’s Dasani reported declining or weakening bottled-water sales as well.

The sad part is that ending the bottled-water fad took a recession, when common sense should have kicked in long ago.

While some bottled water does come from the natural springs and mountain lakes depicted on the labels, most is just municipal tap water - water that is packaged and sold at enormous cost.
