first_imgLA CA9ADA FLINTRIDGE – Even Charles Elachi, the director of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, admits it would be difficult for the lab to match its past two years in the spotlight. But as the year gets under way, he said, “I think 2006 is going to be almost as exciting as 2004 and 2005.” On Jan. 15, the Stardust return capsule will parachute to the Utah desert bringing samples it collected from the tail of comet Wild 2. Ken Atkins, the mission’s project manager at JPL from 1995 until 2000, said Stardust will be the first sample return mission to come back from beyond the moon. Of course, while the new missions progress, other lab employees will work with the 16 ongoing missions JPL manages throughout the solar system. Elachi said the Cassini orbiter will fly past a Saturnian moon about once a month throughout the year, bringing new discoveries with each pass. With the new year, the lab has completed its funding-related layoffs, which cut about 5 percent of employees, bringing the lab workforce to about 5,000. And Elachi said “we envision for the foreseeable future we will stay roughly at the 5,000 level.” kimm.groshong@sgvn.com (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4451160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

But many times, the technology the robots carry is outdated by the time they reach their destinations. “What we’ve got here is a chance to bring those samples back to Earth,” Atkins said. “And there we can use the finest instruments in the world to investigate these particles.” After that high point, Elachi said the lab hopes one of its satellites, CloudSat/Calipso, which was supposed to launch in 2005, will launch in late February. It is designed to study the Earth’s clouds to improve weather prediction models. The launch has been delayed by an ongoing strike of Boeing technicians. In March, all eyes will turn to the Red Planet and the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. Once there, it will begin a five- to six-month process of adjusting to get in close enough to obtain the highest resolution public images of any planetary body, including Earth, ever captured. “What we’re hoping to see is the detail of the morphology so we can better understand the processes on the surface,” Elachi said. last_img read more

first_imgFONTANA – Danica Patrick didn’t hold back words – or perhaps one of her fists – after she got tangled up with Jaques Lazier late in Sunday’s Toyota Indy 400 at California Speedway. “The first person I saw after the accident was Jaques and that wasn’t a good thing,” said Patrick, who blamed Lazier for the Turn 2 mishap that knocked both from the race with 15 laps remaining. “I confronted him. I told him how I felt. I was mad at him.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “My son hits harder than she does,” chided Lazier, whose son Kayden is 4. Lazier, a resident of Rancho Cucamonga, didn’t offer any further details and said he’s going to let IRL officials handle it. “There are two sides to every story,” IRL spokesman John Griffin said. “We will investigate.” The other side denies anything actually took place. “I didn’t do that,” said Patrick, who was ninth at the time of the accident.”I definitely yelled at him, but I didn’t punch him. But sometime during the ride to the infield care center in the back of an IRL safety vehicle, Patrick evidently took it up a notch. The 23-year-old IRL rookie struck Lazier in the face. The driver of the SUV had to stop briefly to tend to the situation, which reverted back to verbal sparring as they circled the track. center_img “He’s going to actually say he got beat up by a girl?” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
