The Winner…

Hi gang every one had a good day, didn’t you! It warmed up hear today, mid fifty’s. How ever the wind was cold. I had the dogs out running a couple of times today they had a ball. Buddy loves to chase anything. He’s so much bigger than the other dogs; they get out of his way!

Bouncing around reading the news today, Asia is still a major world concern. I enjoy keeping up with science and the unknown. I ran across a story that has been unfolding for twenty years.



Gravity May Lose Its Pull

The Jet Propulsion Laboratory physicist was looking over data from two Pioneer spacecraft that had been speeding through the solar system for nearly a decade.
Only something was off base. The craft weren't where they were supposed to be.

Only something was off base. The craft weren't where they were supposed to be.
Rather than traveling at a constant velocity of more than 25,000 mph toward the edge of the solar system, Pioneers 10 and 11 were inexplicably slowing down. Even factoring in the gravitational pull of the sun and its other planets couldn't explain what he was seeing.
How could that be?
At first, Anderson figured there must be a simple explanation. Maybe there was a malfunction on board the spacecraft. Maybe his calculations were wrong.
Shy, bookish and soft-spoken, Anderson was not the type to call a news conference to announce that two U.S. spacecraft appeared to be disobeying the physical laws of the universe.
"I assumed something was going on that I didn't understand," said Anderson, now 70. "So I just kept at it."
For years.

If you like science or just curious this is a grate article check it out!

Also today the female athlete of the year was announced…

Small wonder then, that what was an average year for golfer Annika Sorenstam was more than good enough to earn her recognition as The Associated Press Female Athlete of the Year for the second year running

She won early and often, and often by overwhelming margins. She won on four continents - in Australia, Sweden and Japan and in six of the 50 United States. She won a major, the most money and a remarkable 10 times in just 20 starts worldwide.

She is amazing, to read full story!

Thought for the day, as our world gets smaller every year, so do we in comparison!
