    UC Santa Barbara geologist Jim Boles has found evidence of helium leakage from the Earth’s mantle along a 30-mile stretch of the Newport-Inglewood Fault Zone in the Los Angeles Basin. Using samples of casing gas from two dozen oil wells ranging from LA’s Westside to Newport Beach in Orange County, Boles discovered that more than one-third of the sites — some of the deepest ones — show evidence of high levels of helium-3 (3He).Considered primordial, 3He is a vestige of the Big Bang. Its only terrestrial source is the mantle. Leakage of 3He suggests that the Newport-Inglewood fault is deeper...

    NORFOLK, Va. (NNS) -- The last two H-3 Sea King helicopters made their last operational flight Jan. 27, taking to the air before making way for their replacement, the MH-60S Knighthawk. Military personnel and civilians gathered in hangar SP-35 aboard Naval Station Norfolk, home of Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 2, the Fleet Angels, as their Commanding Officer, Cmdr. H. Kris Croeber, addressed the crowd. “Whatever the mission they were tasked with, the H-3 found a way to get it done.” said Croeber. “There is only one King.” Throughout its 45-year history, the H-3 has been involved in many missions,...

    Hummer, long loved by loyal owners and fans and just as equally loathed by environmentalists and some consumer groups, is coming out with a new model that it hopes wins over at least some critics. The General Motors division that makes the Hummer also hopes the new model, the H3, puts some pop back into the vehicle's sales, which through August had plunged 25 percent from a year ago. Unveiled recently at a Anaheim, Calif., auto show, the H3 retains the unique look of its larger siblings but gets an average 20 miles per gallon on the highway -- almost...

    In their (iraqis') frustration for a successful offensive against Iran on the northern front between 12th and 22nd March of 1981, Iraq fired two Frog-7 surface-to-surface Rockets against cities of Dezful and Ahwaz. Within days after this attack, commanders of the 31st and 32nd Tactical Fighter Wing in Shahrokhi Tactical Air Base (TAB 3, near Hamadan) planned a counter attack. According to Iranian intelligence, the Iraqi Air Force removed most of her valuable assets to its Al-Wallid air base on the Baghdad-Amman highway close to Jordanian border, part of H-3 complex. There at least two squadrons equipped with ten Tu-22B...

    On Friday, March 14, at 7:20 a.m. MST — five days before the official start of the war — two B-1B bombers struck the H3 airfield complex about 250 miles west of Baghdad. The bombers also hit another airfield complex nearby, according to the Associated Press. The Air Force did not say where the B-1Bs were based. Ellsworth Air Force Base has two squadrons of B-1Bs — or 26 aircraft. The other 34 aircraft in the nation's B-1B fleet are based at Dyess AFB, Texas. Nearly 1,000 Ellsworth personnel and an undisclosed number of Ellsworth B-1Bs are deployed overseas for...
