    Siting a reasonably-sized facility is an environmental nightmare. Not a lot of people know it, but the modern era of the so-called environmental movement had its genesis in protests over the Storm King Mountain facility on the Hudson River. The protesters? Not the grimy, pony-tailed agitators of today, but wealthy landowners along the river whose sweeping vistas of the Hudson River valley would be “visually polluted” by the power lines running from the facility. Ask most people today what Storm King Mountain was proposed to be and they will say it was a nuclear plant. Wrong. It was planned to be a pumped storage facility.

    They say the same thing about Denmark and its boondoggle of a wind energy program. They fail to mention that the only thing that makes it even marginally viable is the ready access to Norwegian hydropower. And it isn't as if Denmark is any kind of world-class economic or military power.

    Conversion costs from diesel or gasoline to CNG can also be killers. I read or heard somewhere that to convert from one or the other to CNG requires an EPA-certified shop, and for something like a bus it runs around $100K with all the safety and QA required. Not that those are bad things for public transport, but my town looked at it for their public transit system and decided on a go-slow approach, where they'd do the conversions a few at a time and see if it panned out. The key issue was the cost per mile driven using diesel vs. CNG. At the time the equivalent cost for diesel vs. CNG was something like $3 diesel and 80 cents for CNG for the same number of vehicle-miles (I can't recall what that was). But given the conversion cost and vehicle lifetime it came out just a little on the positive side, (as long as CNG is cheap compared to diesel).

    I guess it's worth looking at for a vehicle that is on the street a lot, every day, carrying a fair number of people. But, being retired, I'm driving less than 40 miles a week unless its vacation or a consulting job somewhere. So it doesn't make sense for a homebody like me to try either CNG or EVs. I'm gonna be dead before I see a net positive ROI.

    My cousin is friends with a guy who runs tour buses in the towns around the Smoky Mountains NP and he looked into using EVs for his vehicles. The killer was the hill-climbing problem. That just kills the electrics. They ended up going with CNG, given the cost of diesel at the time.

    Steve Elmendorf, a Washington strategist and lobbyist, said the issue would fade away.

    Probably the most likely outcome. In two years' time, Stephanopoulos will have worked his usual "it's old news" and "they all do it" gambits to the nth degree. That's why they let this come out now. Two years in politics is like two million real years. Unless more comes out than what has so far, this thing won't have the legs to last two years.

    Aside from that, it will only matter if people hear about it and care about it. They won't hear about it because the media will protect Hillary, even more than they do Obama. They won't care about it for two reasons. First, the majority of the electorate today doesn't care about character and honesty. All they care about is, gimme free stuff from da gummint. Second, Hillary has the trump cards in her deck (she has ovaries and is a liberal).

    chimera to tanknetter
    My recollection is that the law(s) on astronauts keeping artifacts from their spaceflights were on the books quite some time ago, and are pretty restrictive.

    At the time it was not against NASA policy to carry along personal mementos. There was some wording about those being "sanctioned" by NASA, but the definition was pretty loose. The guys on Apollo 15 got into trouble with those postage stamps. Some were "sanctioned", others were not. The unsanctioned ones were planned to be kept by the crew and later sold to establish a trust fund for their kids' education. When NASA officials found out, they confiscated them all. Gus Grissom carried some Mercury dimes in Liberty Bell 7, which were recovered when the sunken craft was raised a few years ago. Buzz Aldrin took along a "communion kit" to the lunar surface, which caused a bit of a stir in some circles.

    There are people now trying to raise the F-1 engines from some of the Saturn Vs that landed in the ocean during the launch of some of the missions. NASA put the word out that those are still considered "government property". The general guideline seems to be if it was manufactured for NASA and paid for by the public, it is still public (government) property. Personal items are still yours.

    I don't know about the comments in the article's comment section that say something about Obama signing a law saying this or that about these items. Anything about Obama I would view with some skepticism.

    There was one Soyuz capsule that landed way off the Mark, by hundreds of miles. The cosmonauts had to fend off wolves until the recovery team arrived.

    That was Voskhod 2. It was that one where Leonov did the first EVA. They had trouble getting back into their seats after the EVA to properly set the center of mass of the spacecraft, and that delayed the retrofire by about 46 seconds. That caused an overshoot of about 386 km, which took them into Siberia. They heard wolves howling in the distance but the main problem was cold, since the spacecraft had no heat after landing. A helicopter dropped supplies and warmer clothes but the ground rescue didn't occur until the next day. They built a shelter to stay another night in the forest with the rescue team until they came out on skis the next day a a helicopter took them back.

    chimera to nikos1121; 21twelve
    I agree. Throw that ball into the third row of seats if the opening isn't there. They had two timeouts and two downs to push it in with Lynch or even a bootleg by Wilson. But Butler made a quick move on the ball and its possible Wilson didn't see that coming. He saw the shotgun and knew enough to hang back rather than clog the middle against the run which obviously wasn't coming on that down. Like I said a pass play in that situation isn't necessarily a bad call, it just has to be the right pass. I still say a fade to the deep corner with a tall wideout rather than a slant would have been a better call if you're going to pass in that situation.

    But what do I know? I'm just an armchair general who didn't have a dog in the fight. Just wanted to see a good game between two good teams and I think we got that.

    No question Butler made the best play on the ball we've seen in that position for awhile. He just read Wilson's look and stepped into the path of the ball. Not bad for an undrafted rookie from a Division II school, playing in the big game.

    Looks like there were two players a few yards into the end zone, and a Pats player closing from the top. A few yards away so yes, not a "big" crowd, but any kind of a deflection and a number of Pats players could have made the pick.

    No question about that. Butler held his position, he didn't get excited and jump into the pile. You could see he was reading where Wilson was looking to throw and just beat Lockette to the spot. He kept control of the ball, too, which was important. Just swatting it down would have stopped the clock with time left and Seattle having timeouts to spend.

    I agree with you both. Russell Wilson has some mobility so maybe an option with the receiver running a fade to the corner pattern, something to open it up, because you don’t throw into a crowd at the goal line. If it isn’t there then throw the ball into the stands and take your chances with Marshawn Lynch on 3rd and 4th down. But, its easy to second-guess, so perhaps we shouldn’t (but I can’t help it).

    A pass play on 2nd down isn't necessarily a bad call but it should not be over the middle into traffic. You had to know the linebackers would be clogging the center expecting a run and that puts them in position to make a pick, which is what happened. So if you're going to try a pass do a fade to the corner or something. If that fails then punch it in on 3rd and 4th down.

    But, armchair coaching after the fact is easy, so its time for me to STHU.

    Keep in mind that Hillary is not doing this to help get the truth out, or to assist the investigation in any manner. With the Clintons, everything is a political calculation, and in her mind she has nothing to lose, because there are only two possible outcomes. The first is the 'Pubs on the committee grow a pair and play hardball, and ask the tough questions and demand answers, even putting her under oath. If they play rough, she'll play the "victim" card. Remember what she did to Lazio when he tried to get her to sign a pledge? She'll turn the tables on the 'Pubs and whine about their "mean-spiritedness". And of course the media will embellish that gambit.

    The other outcome is that the 'Pubs play their usual meek, mild, deferential role, they don't ask any tough questions, don't press home any issues, and she comes off looking like she is helpful, cooperative, and innocent. Then she gets to frame the issue on her terms, which is always the key in politics. The 'Rats will say, see, Hillary has nothing to hide, the mean 'Pubs got nothing on her, let's "move on". Sound familiar? It should. We had eight long, weary, dreary years of it in the '90s.

    Good point about the microbial problem. NASA developed an elaborate protocol to deal with just that when the first lunar explorers returned (isolation garments, the LRL at JSC, etc.). The lunar environment turned out to be a self-sterilizer, but any kind of life-supporting world we discover will have its own alien (to us, when in fact we'll be the aliens) bacteria, viruses, and microbes that our systems have never had to defend against. No doubt they will, to some extent, but will it be enough? Remember what happened to the Martians in War of the Worlds. It could very well happen to us if we go somewhere that has germs and viruses we can't cope with.

    They went into the Big Ten championship game against Wisconsin as the underdog ... and they won that game by a score of 59-0.

    Obviously the selection committee weighted very heavily the late-season play. It's been said that in college football it is often more important how you finish the season than how you start, and this is an example.

    The Wisconsin game was one of total domination and if you look at the stats and some of the replays you will see that. Everything clicked, passing, running, defense, special teams, whatever. You might see that kind of performance once in every hundred games you played, and done with a QB who had never started a game before for the team. It was obvious this was a team that was peaking at the end of the season and those are the kind of teams you want to see in playoffs and bowl games.

    I always thought that in football when you had the ball the object was to score points. It didn’t matter what the time was left in the game, or how many points you or the other team had, your job was to score points. That’s not “running up the score”, it’s playing the game. My coach always told me you play the game for the whole game, you don’t quit, whether it’s the start or end of the game. Laying down for your opponent is a sign of disrespect, that you have pity for them. A good opponent doesn’t want pity, they want respect, and you give that by playing them with your best effort. You shouldn’t feel bad for the other team because it’s not what they want or should want. Neither should you feel bad for playing the game hard every play and every minute. Play tough but play fair. Respect your opponent. And be friends after the game.

    There was a guy who lived up the road from my Mom when she had a place on the ocean on the East Coast. He wanted to put up a wind turbine because it seemed like a good idea, there is always a breeze at the beach. So he did, along with a ground-level solar panel array. Then his neighbors sued him and shut down his wind turbine. Why? Too noisy, they said. So down comes the windmill. He kept his solar panels until a hurricane came up the coast one year and washed/blew them away. So he’s back on the grid and, ironically, a lot of his electricity is coming from a nuclear plant about ten miles away, that keeps on putting out the juice, day and night, windy or calm, night or day. Anecdotal, I know, but kind of interesting.

Rodamala’s barred spiral is just below the blade of the hockey stick. If you use the two stars that form the blade of the hockey stick as pointers, track right just past the dust tail and you will see my edge-on spiral. Just below that along the edge of the comet’s tail is another smudge that looks like it could be a classic spiral.

    I got the right picture now (was using the wrong one). It looks like a barred spiral. Very lovely. There is an edge-on view of a spiral if you follow the right-hand edge of the comet's dust tail just to where you see a bright white star with prominent diffraction spikes very close to the tail. The galaxy is just off the edge of the dust tail.

    I don't see it. I see one above the nucleus about halfway to the top of the frame, just to the left of the dust tail.

    Looks like multiple ion tails on this one, and a lovely, feathery dust tail.
