Sphinx Main
The Editor:   Will this be a continuing column, Lois ?

Futball Cat:   It depends on how sloppy, stupid, careless, or just how forgetful our athletes are.  Here is an Auburn team, number three in the country, who forgot how to hold the ball.  They fumbled twice in the last minute.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Welcome to a Comet
Image Credit: ESA/Rosetta/Philae/CIVA

Explanation: The Rosetta Mission lander is safely on a comet. One of Philae’s feet appears at the bottom left of this spectacular image of the surface of C67/P Churyumov-Gerasimenko. Still a happy lander, Philae bounced twice before settling and returning images from the surface, traveling a kilometer or so after initially touching at the targeted site Agilkia. A surface panorama suggests that the lander has come to rest tilted and near a shadowing wall, with its solar panels getting less illumination that hoped. Philae’s science instruments are working as planned and data is being relayed during communications windows, when the Rosetta spacecraft is above the lander’s new horizon.
