Curiosity Finds…SOMETHING…on Martian Surface
While scooping its first samples of Martian soil, NASA’s Curiosity rover captured the image above, which shows what seems to be a small, seemingly metallic sliver or chip of… something… resting on the ground. Is it a piece of the rover? Or some other discarded fleck of the MSL descent mechanisms? Or perhaps an exotic Martian pebble of some sort? Nobody knows for sure yet, but needless to say the s

One of the challenges of running a site like Centauri Dreams is that deep space news accumulates so swiftly that it’s easy to focus on one issue while another timely story slips away.

Urban Stonehenge
Above you see an urban Stonehenge that I encountered along Highway 290 E. here in Houston. It was created for the worship of sprawl, toll roads and the automobile. It tells you when the autumnal equinox is and how many dollars are being charged to your tag.

In these states a battle between two very different visions for the economy is playing out.   The GOP aims to create momentum for its ongoing push to diminish the role and strength of unions in the American economy.
