I was chosen by NASASocial to view the ICESat-2 satellite launch at Vandenberg Air Force Base two weeks ago.

It was AWESOME!

You can check out all of my photos/videos on my Facebook.

Here is another opportunity and I urge everyone to apply.

NASA is opening its doors and inviting its social media followers and news media to an in-person ‘Moon to Mars’ event on Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2018, at agency locations across the country.

The event takes guests on a tour of the center and highlights our work with international and commercial partners to refocus exploration efforts on the Moon, with an eye to ultimately going on to Mars and even beyond.

Each center will be connected via a multi-center NASA Television simulcast with NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine at Kennedy Space Center during the event. Bridenstine will discuss plans to enable human exploration of the Moon as preparation for human missions to Mars and deeper into the solar system.  

Participants will get a unique behind-the-scenes look at the respective center and the diverse work of the agency through tours and presentations with scientists, engineers and managers. The events also will provide guests the opportunity to interact with fellow social media users, space enthusiasts and members of NASA’s social media team.

Social media users interested in attending should register for an in-person event at one of the locations throughout the country. Registration for the NASA Social closes at 11:59 p.m. EDT on Monday, Oct. 1. Participants will be selected from online submissions.

We have NASA locations in Alabama, California, Florida, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Ohio, Texas, and Virginia. No two locations are the same. Each center has a different itinerary depending on their location.

You won’t regret it.

Controversial foot doctor Pierre Dupont accused of using ‘knock-off’ implants

A controversial foot doctor is now facing accusations about the use of questionable implants on patients without their knowledge.

Go Public and Radio-Canada recently reported how, after being banned from dentistry in Quebec following serious problems with patients, Pierre Dupont reinvented himself as a foot specialist in Ontario. One of his Ottawa patients contacted us after having trouble healing from foot surgery done by Dupont.

Pancreatic cancer risk tied to specific mouth bacteria

The presence of certain bacteria in the mouth may reveal increased risk for pancreatic cancer and enable earlier, more precise treatment, report investigators. Pancreatic cancer patients are known to be susceptible to gum disease, cavities, and poor oral health in general, say the study authors. That vulnerability led the research team to search for direct links between the makeup of bacteria driving oral disease and subsequent development of pancreatic cancer, a disease that often escapes early diagnosis and causes 40,000 US deaths annually.

A spoonful of sugar? Swapping sugary drinks for water and dairy seems the best medicine

New research may have an impact on the sugar tax debate. The research team observed overall changes in dietary patterns in overweight children, including a decrease in consumption of sugary drinks, when additional water or milk is added to their diet.

Have a great day!
