This is the Closest OSIRIS-REx has Gotten to Bennu. Just 680 Meters Above the Asteroid

NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft has been at asteroid Bennu since Dec. 3rd, 2018. On that day, it went from travelling to the asteroid to travelling around it. Since then it’s been surveying and mapping Bennu. Now OSIRIS-REx (Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security, Regolith Explorer) has reached a new milestone. On June 12th, the spacecraft executed another maneuver, and in the process broke its own record for the closest orbit of a planetary body by a spacecraft. This signalled the beginning of a new phase for the OSIRIS-REx mission called Orbital B. In Orbital B, the spacecraft is orbiting asteroid Bennu at an altitude of 680 meters (2,231 feet). (This beats its own previous record of 1.3 kilometers (0.8 miles) above the surface.) OSIRIS-REx will remain in Orbital B until the second week of August. Following that, it will raise its orbit to 1.3 km (0.8 miles) above the surface. During the first two weeks of Orbital B, the spacecraft will investigate particles being ejected into space. It first spotted those particles when it arrived at Bennu, and scientists want to investigate by taking frequent images of the asteroid’s horizon. For Orbital B’s remaini...

Mostly cloudy skies with a few showers after midnight. Low 58F. Winds light and variable. Chance

Mostly cloudy skies with a few showers after midnight. Low 58F. Winds light and variable. Chance of rain 30%. Most people only know Mount Dickey from hiking the Welch-Dickey Loop Trail. It’s a circuitous route over the two mountains and one of the most popular hiking trails in the White Mountains because of its outstanding views and the ease at which they can be reached. The scrambles over ledges provide a challenge for hiking newbies, as well as a fun-filled adventure for children of all ages. On any given weekend, you can find the parking lot filled with vehicles from various points south. On a beautiful morning with the sun reigning down and clear skies overhead, I decided to return to Dickey-Welch. When I arrived at 9 a.m., the parking lot was nearly full. I eased my truck into a tight parking space, grabbed my pack and started for the trailhead. People were bustling about, chattering away, stashing food into packs, lacing up boots, snapping leashes on dogs, looking at maps and getting companies of children in order. I started out on the trail with a parade of fellow hikers: two teenagers talking about the Red Sox and Bruins; a father trying to push his infant son up the tra...

Business briefing: Same store, two prices… it’s baffling, say shoppers

SAINSBURY’S has been accused of confusing customers after it emerged that some products can be found for up to £40 less in the same store. Nearly 300 of the supermarket’s outlets have housed an Argos counter since the grocery giant bought the catalogue retailer for £1.4billion in 2016. Dozens of items are sold by both, but shoppers were angry after learning they can make big savings only yards away. Catherine Davis, 69, from Northampton, bought a Henry vacuum cleaner for £149.99 in Sainsbury’s and returned to the store when her daughter decided she wanted one too. She said she was ‘incensed’ to find the Argos counter was selling the same product for more than £40 less. ‘It’s all very well telling me that they are two different shops but I am not an economist and as far as I am concerned I only see one shop,’ she told the Times. A portable Bluetooth speaker costing £99 at a Sainsbury’s in south London was on sale for £69 at Argos in the same shop, and at Ely, Cambridgeshire, a children’s Chad Valley sand and water table cost £16.50 in Argos but £25 in Sainsbury’s. James Daley of consumer group Fairer Finance urged both retailers to align their pricing. ‘Customers are going to fe...

Howdy, my name is John Cherwa and I’m the guest instructor on this here newsletter as Houston Mitchell contemplates what to do with his Lonzo Ball Lakers jersey. We’re going to skip all the smart aleck comments today and get right to the biggest story since the end of the NBA playoffs. First, let’s get to news, courtesy of Tania Ganguli and Brad Turner. The full story is here, and here’s a tighter version. “The New Orleans Pelicans agreed Saturday to trade Anthony Davis to the Lakers, according to people with knowledge of the deal. The Lakers sent Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart along with three first-round draft picks, including the No. 4 selection on June 20, to New Orleans to acquire Davis. “Since the trade cannot be finalized until July 6, the Lakers will have the salary cap space to sign another top-tier free agent to a maximum contract. “Davis’ acquisition comes a year after the Lakers signed LeBron James. At the time, their front office of Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka said James was the first part of a two-year process to rebuild the Lakers into a championship-caliber team. “The Lakers hoped to make progress last season. Hampered by injuries, particularly a five...
