Curiosity-Mt Sharp

Mars Exploration Curiosity continues to explore the region around Mt. Sharp on Mars.  This photo shows the variety of areas to explore at various elevations.  Curiosity continues to search for microbial life, as of yet none has been found.  This area may hold the best promise as the rover and scientists work together to examine the minerals found at the higher levels.  So far they have found Hematite, clay and boron at these higher levels.

Curiosity check-in

Rough Terrain on Mars near Mt. Sharp Thought I would check-in on some of the latest activity from our rover friend, Curiosity.  Curiosity has undergone some software updates since I last wrote, it seems to be fully operational, more than I can say for my laptop, but that’s another story. Curiosity landed on Mars in 2012, it has managed to make a journey to an area dubbed ‘Mt Sharp’.  The rover has traveled over 8 […]

End-times puzzle

Are we nearing the end of the End-Times? Since the 1990s, I’ve studied Bible prophecy with regard to End-Times.  While I still have much to learn, to me the signs or pieces of the puzzle are becoming easier to identify.  They are becoming so numerous, it is hard to find a week when a news event does not exist as it relates to the End-Times.  You will see the word ‘converging’ mentioned in many articles […]

The LM – Lunar Module

The Lunar Lander   In my previous posting, I wrote about the Lunar lander being stowed in the top of the S-IV-B portion of the Saturn V.  The Command Module docked with the LM and gently pulled it out of the storage area.  The two spacecraft traveled to the moon together, docked, allowing the astronauts to travel between the craft through a tunnel which was part of the docking equipment. Two of the astronauts, the […]
