Rover Sends First Color Snapshot From Martian Surface


NASA's Curiosity rover has snapped its first color photo of the Martian landscape from the surface, using a camera that is still packed away on its long robotic arm.

The new Mars photo reveals a view of the terrain north of the Curiosity rover, and shows the north wall and rim of Gale Crater in the distance, NASA officials said Tuesday in an image description.

Curiosity touched down on the Red Planet on Sunday night inside Gale Crater, a sprawling impact basin that stretches 96 miles (154 kilometers) across. While a camera on the rover's underbelly snapped hundreds of color photos of Mars from above during the descent, the new image is the first color view from Curiosity on the ground.

Deep Purple Keyboardist Jon Loard Dies


Jon Lord, the keyboardist of the pioneering British hard-rock band Deep Purple, died Monday in London. He was 71.

The cause was a pulmonary embolism, said his manager, Bruce Payne. Mr. Lord announced last year that he had cancer.

In songs from the late 1960s and early '70s like "Smoke on the Water," "Hush" and the epic "Child in Time," Deep Purple laid much of the groundwork for heavy metal, drawing a blunter and fiercer sound out of the blues-based riffs common in the British invasion's first wave.

Sightings of the Loch Ness Monster


The first written account of the Loch Ness Monster, or Nessie, was made by the Viking Adamnan in 565 AD. He described how St. Columba heard about the monster killing a man, and then rowed to the center of the loch to order the beast to stop such attacks in the future. Ever since that time, legend has it, Nessie has never repeated its misdemeanor. But it’s still there – according to a number of people who saw her.



Sightings

In 1933 alone, there were 5 sightings of Nessie.

Did You Know Why?


Why is the sky blue?

When sunlight travels through the atmosphere, it collides with gas molecules. These molecules scatter the light. The shorter the wavelength of light, the more it is scattered by the atmosphere. Because it has a shorter wavelength than the other colors, blue light is scattered more, ten times more than red light, for instance. That is why the sky is blue.
