Casini space probe ends its 20-year mission

On Sept. 15, 2017, after twenty years in space, NASA's Cassini spacecraft ended its remarkable journey of exploration. After completing many moon-flybys and observing seasonal changes on Saturn and Titan, the craft expended almost every bit of the rocket propellant it carried. At that point, operators  deliberately plunged Cassini into the planet to ensure Saturn's moons were not polluted by the pieces of the craft,  and would remain pristine for future explorations. In the photo, Earth is 750 million miles away.

Giza pyramids early attempt at camping
Once shrouded in mystery, the pyramids of Giza are now believed to be the earliest known attempt at camping out, a team of archeologists has reported. "It appears that around 4000 BC, the pharaohs of Egypt began packing up all of their earthly possessions for some recreational camping on the western banks of the Nile," said Dr. Zahi Hawass of Cairo University, noting that the pyramids' dense outer walls and sharply angled faces would have been perfect for keeping rain out. "Furthermore, it seems that the extensive hieroglyphics showing spirits embarking on a journey to the afterlife was their way of telling spooky ghost stories." Despite the remarkable discovery, Hawass and his team are still unsure why so many ancient Egyptians decided to remove their inner organs before getting inside their stone sleeping bags at night. This article teaches us that we should not believe everything we read without some sort of evidence..

New transportation system passes first test
August 1, Hyperloop One made history. Nearly four years to the day after Elon Musk published his plans for the system, it set a new hyperloop speed record - 200 mph on their test track outside Las Vegas. It is faster than trains, safer than cars and less damaging to the environment than aircraft. It is anticipatedit will soon reach speeds of over 600 mph. The 28-foot-long pod hit speeds of 192mph in about five seconds using electricity to generate more than 3000 horsepower while traveling through a 1600-foot-long concrete tube. Everything about the pod, XP-1, functioned well during the test. To reduce friction as much as possible, the air pressure in the tube was dropped, and the pod used magnetic levitation. While the test went well, there are still many additional steps and challenges before hyperloop becomes a transportation reality. see more

50-year old bookstore c
omes to an end
The idea of the Alpha Book Center was first laid in the mind of Dr. John Rodgers in 1967. Within a year it hatched.  It grew and moved steadily year after year. But, after nearly half a century, faced with growing competition and a declining interest in books due to the influence of computers, founder Dr. John Rodgers decided it was time to retire the store. Most of the merchandise was sold and the doors were closed, but the website stayed open to sell the remaining stock. August 11 the store website was cancelled in the last step to bring an end to the store. You may still access store information at its encyclopedia listing. There is still a lot of merchandise left. It may be viewed Sunday afternoons at the Omega Directory, 6418 S. 39th  S. 39th Avenue in Phoenix
