    .... Above is a global map of Mars, showing its largest and well known geological features...smaller than Earth, its lack of oceans means that Mars’ actual dry surface has about the same square footage as the continents of Earth. It is a vast place. Getting a close look at every spot is going to take many decades of work, and probably won’t be finished until humans are actually walking its surface... ...let’s pick a spot to the west of Olympus Mons, the solar system’s largest volcano, and between Tharsis Montes, the string of only slightly smaller giant volcanoes to the...

    The fascist, intolerant, and oppressive nature of today’s leftist culture has now gotten so bad that The Atlantic, a liberal publication long considered a reasonable intellectual voice from the left, can no longer tolerate for more than two weeks the hiring of a conservative, even though that conservative, Kevin Williamson, was also a vehement opponent of Donald Trump....Williamson’s firing is only one example of a legion of similar stories. There is the fascist intolerance of modern academia for example. Or we can talk about the hateful scapegoating of innocent NRA members...Or maybe we should mention the hate and violence committed...

    "Several recent stories regarding Trump’s space policy has prompted David Livingston to quickly schedule a Bob Zimmerman appearance on The Space Show for Monday, March 19, 7 pm (Pacific). The show will last at least ninety minutes. David especially wanted my analysis of Trump’s comments about the Falcon Heavy and SpaceX and how those comments have the big space contractors Boeing and Lockheed Martin quaking in their boots. Their fear and terror is further compounded by the present lack of a NASA administrator, which is made even worse by the announcement that the acting interim administrator is retiring at the...

    The former Sanford, Florida neighborhood watch volunteer, who was found not guilty in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, told Big League Politics Hillary R. Clinton’s suggestion that Capitol Hill Republicans were partners in Sunday’s spree-shooting in Las Vegas was a disgrace. “Frankly, I am just disgusted that Hillary Clinton made the comments that she did without out knowing anything—and that is the most dangerous thing that anyone in politics can do at this point,” said George Zimmerman, who was a neighborhood watch volunteer the Feb. 26, 2012 evening Martin jumped him and struggled for his gun. Under pressure from...

    Three jurors from the George Zimmerman trial are going on national television to defend their controversial verdict — one that sparked protests across the country — and legal analysts say they could perform a public service. “People don’t understand you have to follow the law,” juror Madelin Rivera said in an interview. “They give directions to the jury, and you follow that.” Rivera (known as juror B-29 during the trial), Amy Tronolone (D-40) and Christine Barry (B-51) appear in “The Jury Speaks: George Zimmerman” at 9 p.m. Monday on Oxygen. The series also talks to jurors in the trials of...

    Months after campaigning for Hillary Clinton, Trayvon Martin’s mother is considering running for office herself, Miami news sources reported. “The only thing I can do is try,” Sybrina Fulton told Miami ABC affiliate WPLG. “And, I am not afraid to try.” Fulton spent part of 2016 campaigning for Clinton. In an op-ed she penned for CNN, Fulton explained she endorsed the former first lady because Clinton emphasized the Black Lives Matter movement and backed gun control efforts. George Zimmerman, a former neighborhood watchman, killed Martin, Fulton’s 17-year-old son, five years ago in Sanford, Fla. A Florida jury later acquitted Zimmerman,...

    NRA says law 'restores the right of the presumption of innocence and the right of self-defense'! On Friday, Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) signed into law new legal protections for individuals who defend themselves with firearms. Senate Bill 128 shifts the burden of proof requirement from the accused to state prosecutors during certain legal proceedings when someone claims he fired a gun in self-defense. The law, which goes into effect immediately, requires that state prosecutors present evidence to overcome a defendant's claim that they employed a justifiable use of force. If the prosecutors can't show "clear and convincing evidence" that...

Zimmerman was later acquitted of criminal charges related to Martin's death, but it...

    The Zimmerman Telegram finally prompted the decision Great Britain had been wishing for since the sinking of the Lusitania in May 1915. The text asked the Mexican government to enter the war on the side of Germany, if the U.S. declared war when Germany resumed unrestricted submarine warfare in February 1917. The German ambassador offered for them to make war and peace together, offered generous financial support, and to sustain an understanding Mexico was to reconquer the lost territory in Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. The British were monitoring messages neutrals such as the U.S. and Sweden were improperly forwarding...

    In his new play "The Trial of Trayvon Martin," set to open April 6 in the Manny Fried Playhouse, Buffalo playwright Gary Earl Ross poses a simple question with a damning answer: What would have happened on Feb. 26, 2012 if the roles of Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman, whose deadly confrontation that evening helped to fuel a new movement for racial justice in America, had been switched? "Would Martin have been released because there was nothing to contradict his story?" Ross asked. "Or would he have been held until they found something to contradict his story?" Given what we...

    Almost five years ago, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by a "neighborhood watch" member as he walked home from a convenience store where he had purchased a juice drink and a package of Skittles. George Zimmerman, the man who shot Trayvon, believed him to be "possibly dangerous" because of his race and the fact that he was wearing a hoodie. Trayvon's murder – and Zimmerman's eventual acquittal – incited nation-wide outrage and was part of launching the powerful Black Lives Matter movement. To this day, Trayvon's name serves as a reminder of the progress that is necessary in...

    Matthew Apperson has been convicted of attempted murder of George Zimmerman, firing a gun into a vehicle, and aggravated assault. The trial occurred in the same courtroom where Zimmerman was found not guilty by reason of self defense, in the killing of Trayvon Martin.  The sentence was handed down yesterday, on October 17th.  It is for a minimum of 20 years in prison. Apperson claimed self defense.  He said that as he was driving, Zimmerman accelerated, and that as he approached Zimmerman's vehicle from behind and to the right, he accessed his firearm, because he feared Zimmerman.  Then, as...
