Public Invited to Come Aboard NASA’s First Mission to Touch the Sun

Want to get the hottest ticket this summer without standing in line?

NASA is inviting people around the world to submit their names online to be placed on a microchip aboard NASA’s historic Parker Solar Probe mission launching in summer 2018. The mission will travel through the Sun’s atmosphere, facing brutal heat and radiation conditions — and your name will go along for the ride.

“This probe will journey to a region humanity has never explored before,” said Thomas Zurbuchen, the associate administrator for the Science Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “This mission will answer questions scientists have sought to uncover for more than six decades.”

Understanding the Sun has always been a top priority for space scientists. Studying how the Sun affects space and the space environment of planets is the field known as heliophysics. The field is not only vital to understanding Earth’s most important and life-sustaining star, it supports exploration in the solar system and beyond.

Submissions will be accepted until April 27, 2018. Learn more and add your name to the mission here: http://go.nasa.gov/HotTicket

Published in HARDWARE AND METAL, page 10 statement attributed to Mr Gourley House of Commons the member for Colchester.

Mr Gourley is a man of education, a lawyer by profession, a wide reader, and a very thorough gentlemai in the truest of the word. When he speaks, however, the members sit back and prepare themselves.

 

We have the Canadian Pacific Railway stretching up through the country, but as far as any development is concerned, the country is in about as undeveloped a state as it was when the Tndian chiefs saner their war songs on the banks of the Ottawa.”

More May Brothers news

Active Trade in Early Spring—May Bros., Toronto Quiet business during the early part of the year and opening into a broad field of good business in the spring is the expectation of May Bros., West Toronto. Reduction of prices on some lines with conditions varying with cer-tain merchants is thought necessary to stimu-late buying, though a gradual reduction is pre-ferred. On some lines such reductions might entail an actual loss. A complete stock with smaller quantities of each line is advocated. Collections are said to be good and steps are being taken to curtail credit accounts. Published in Vol. XXXIII. TORONTO, JANUARY 15, 1921 No. 3

Take a walk in the woods with acclaimed Irish-Canadian scientist and author Diana Beresford-Kroeger as she reveals our profound human connection to the ancient & sacred northern forests
“From the sacred sugi and cedar forests of Japan, the ancient Raheen Wood of Ireland, and the walnut and redwood trees of America, to the great boreal forest of Canada, ‘Call of the Forest’ tells the amazing stories behind the history and legacy of these ancient forests while also explaining the science of trees and the irreplaceable roles they play in protecting and feeding the planet.
‘Call of the Forest’ sounds the alarm by calling for immediate action on a global scale, but at its heart, it is a story of triumph, proposing a simple strategy for each of us to combat climate change by planting trees in our own yards and neighbourhoods.
