You can take a look at the photos at Mars Mania II, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Saturday, April 8, on the UA campus. HiRISE team leader Alfred S. McEwen will show off the latest photos and give a talk. Details online.
McEwen has also co-authored (with Carolyn Porco of the Space Science Institute and Elizabeth Turtle and Jason Perry of the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory) an article in the latest edition of Science that reveals there may be water erupting from geysers on Enceladus, a moon of Saturn.
The latest images from NASA's Cassini space probe, still in orbit around Saturn, show icy jets at the moon's south pole.
"We realize that this is a radical conclusion--that we may have evidence for liquid water within a body so small and so cold," Porco press-released. "However, if we are right, we have significantly broadened the diversity of solar system environments where we might possibly have conditions suitable for living organisms. It doesn't get any more exciting than this."
"The new fencing and vehicle barriers authorized in my amendment will provide much stronger border security for Arizona," Kyl said in a statement. "It will make it much more difficult for smugglers and illegal aliens to gain entry, significantly reduce crime rates in border towns, and preserve fragile desert lands and archeological resources which are impacted by illegal pedestrian and vehicular traffic."
Goddard is likely to face a challenge from Republican Bill Montgomery in November.
The struggling Wildcats drew a No. 8 seed for their 22nd consecutive appearance in the NCAA tournament and are scheduled to face Wisconsin on Friday, March 17, in Philadelphia.
"They are a man-to-man team," UA Coach Lute Olson said at a press conference. "They shoot a lot of threes. They will run on steals and interceptions, but not off missed shots. I'd say they are fairly typical of Big Ten teams of the past in terms of preferring a half-court style and being physical, tough on the offensive boards. But I do feel that we have the ability to match up well with them based on how we've played throughout the course of the year."
Leroy Donald Johnson was caught in the neighbor's barn with his pants unzipped while holding a sheep down, according to a police report, which notes that he told the neighbor: "You caught me. ... I tried to (expletive) your sheep."
Johnson denied any effort at animal husbandry when he was arrested by a deputy from the Maricopa County Sheriff's Department, according to the Republic. He told police he had been at his neighbor's home to discuss annexation.
