USGS releases trove of high-resolution Mars images and terrain maps | ExtremeTech

“With a veritable army of robots scanning its surface, Mars is the most surveilled planet after Earth. Those rovers and orbiters collect a mountain of image data, but very little is processed into an easily viewable format. The US Geological Survey Astrogeology Science Center is looking to change that. Leveraging supercomputers and cloud computing, the USGS has released 4,800 digital terrain models (DTMs) and 155,000 high-resolution images of the red planet.”

Nevertheless, it is. 1 in 3 Americans have trouble falling asleep at night, according to the National Institutes of Health. People may struggle to catch those z's or stay asleep due to issues with chronic pain, nicotine usage, hormonal changes, pregnancy and menopause, medication, sleep apnea, or mental health, according to Dr. Keisha Sullivan, a doctor of osteopathic and family medicine and a sleep medicine specialist at Kaiser Permanente in Largo, Maryland.”

Did night vision footage show '10 ft. alien' from Las Vegas UFO crash report? | Newsweek

“A new video has gone viral on social media, purporting to show a mystery creature hiding behind a garden fence, that was quickly tied to last week's reports of a ‘UFO crash’ in a residential area of Las Vegas. This follows the mysterious sequence of events from late April that included eyewitness accounts of a bright streak across the sky, followed by a report of an object crashing in an individual's back garden. But did the latest piece of footage, filmed in night mode, really show ‘10ft tall’ extraterrestrials that one of the eye-witnesses claimed to have observed shortly after the reported crash?”
