NASA Announces Next Steps on Journey to Mars: Progress on Asteroid Initiative

NASA Wednesday announced more details in its plan for its Asteroid Redirect Mission (ARM), which in the mid-2020s will test a number of new capabilities needed for future human expeditions to deep space, including to Mars. NASA also announced it has increased the detection of near-Earth asteroids by 65 percent since launching its asteroid initiative three years ago.
For ARM, a robotic spacecraft will capture a boulder from the surface of a near-Earth asteroid and move it into a stable orbit around the moon for exploration by astronauts, all in support of advancing the nation’s journey to Mars.
"The Asteroid Redirect Mission will provide an initial demonstration of several spaceflight capabilities we will need to send astronauts deeper into space, and eventually, to Mars," said NASA Associate Administrator Robert Lightfoot. "The option to retrieve a boulder from an asteroid will have a direct impact on planning for future human missions to deep space and begin a new era of spaceflight."

Titled Rainworks, the invisible pieces by Seattle-based artist Peregrine Church started popping up last year, whose (entirely laudable) mission was to "make people's rainy a little bit better". Each installation is made from an environmentally safe, water-repellant coating that lasts anywhere from 4 months to a year. The art installations are in Seattle, but anyone armed with a $20 bottle of spray and some cardboard can go make their own. Just add water.

Paul Smith X Land Rover Defender
Car | Suv
It's a Land Rover Defender, done up by Paul Smith. It is a collaboration between fashion Designer Paul Smith and car manufacturer Land Rover.
The vehicle features 27 different colours used on the exterior panels, all of which were chosen by Sir Paul Smith. Taking inspiration from the British countryside, as well as colours historically seen on Defenders used by the Armed Forces, he says, "I wanted deep rich colours, but at the same time, I wanted them to work together yet be surprising." In order to achieve the look he wanted, Paul gave the SVO team a set of Pantone colour references, which were then mixed specially for this vehicle.
