Take all of my goddamn money Rockstar! And to anyone who wants this for Christmas, it's on the house from me.
David Gerdes, University of Michigan cosmology professor, while mapping galaxies discovered a new dwarf planet approximately 500 miles in diameter. This made the news today on national public radio. His web page:http://www-personal.umich.edu/~gerdes/. I know this is not sports related but as a double graduate ( BS chem, M.D. ), sometimes these things just make you proud to be an alumnus. Harbaugh will have a camp there next summer
For those who are willing, it's going to be a long night and day ahead for us in eastern and central Florida. We'd appreciate your thoughts and prayers as hurricane Matthew is bearing down on the area.
Looking forward to cheering on Harbaugh and co. once we get through this mess.
Thanks and go blue!
ed: thanks for the well wishes already. My family and I are in Orlando. So yes any further east and we'd have gotten the heck outta town.
6:30 AM update:
So far so good in southeast Orlando. There's some blowing and gusting, but overall it's been tamer than expected.
We've had power all night, so coffee's on. I got about four hours of sleep, and wife and son are still sleeping soundly.
We aren't out of the woods yet, but thanks for the prayers and positive thoughts.
8:30 AM Update:
Still raining and blowing here, but no visible damage other than a few small limbs down. Nothing worse than a summer thunderstorm as far as that goes. The Atlantic coast has taken it pretty hard and there are lots w/o power. Daytona Beach is getting hammered by wind and rain all morning. Praying for similar positive reports from other MGoFloridians.
NASA Administrator Charles Bolden has named Thomas Zurbuchen as the new associate administrator for the Science Mission Directorate at the agency’s headquarters in Washington, effective Monday, Oct. 3. Zurbuchen is a professor of space science and aerospace engineering at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
Never had him for a course, but Prof. Zurbuchen helped with our aero senior project back in '05... so it was pretty exciting to see him receive this appointment.
