During the day, its 17,000 wing-mounted solar cells must charge up the lithium batteries to continue operation of the aircrafts electric engines over night until sunrise.
The flight passes just east of Japan and then over the Pacific, just south of Midway island, all the way to the island of Oahu in the Hawaii chain.
A cold front developed that was too dangerous to cross, and the flight team decided to make a stop in Japan to await the next weather window to attempt the rest of the run to Hawaii.

I want clover and I like the mosses on the shady lawn at the side of our home too. Birds chirp in our heavily flowered crab apple tree and honey bees go about their business. The blossoms are dropping petals like a snow on the lawn and my Yaris (car), which fly off my car as drive away like they are spread at some wedding.
Who needs chemicals for their yard? Who wants to look at a flat, monotonous, golf green that is not actually used for golf or lawn bowling?

But is there more to super pi than just those five numbers. At The Science Rant, we think so, and have a far more revealing discovery to present on SUPER PIE. Yes, revealed here for the first time, the real reason behind what makes Pi into Super Pi. Enjoy.
Yes, its true. Any day can be Super Pie day with the correct addition to Pie.
Sincerely and scientifically yours,

Sound can be created from a speaker of course, and for computers in the early 80's, good old 8-bit programmable sound generation could be produced using sound chips. The sound chip simply generated a wave form and you could control its frequency and sometimes volume or the amplitude (height) of those waves. You could also control the duration of the tones and with great dedication you could program music. This 8-bit style music has some dedicated musicians making amazing productions that are quite complex. This one below, I highly recommend for your listening pleasure. If you ever liked Metallica, you will like this. I recall seeing the video of Enter Sandman during its premiere on MuchMusic in the 90's (Canada's version of MTV). Enjoy.

When CCR first did this song about 69 and 70, the Vietnam war was going strong. The song is not anti soldier at all but expressed feelings on the behalf of young men drafted and sent to war for reasons that no one could describe properly.
While better off families and senator's sons could be moved from state to state each year and kept in university to evade their draft notice, the average lower and middle class sons had no such fortunate situation. (Draft notices were only valid from your State of residence draft board. So you could be moved each year and a new notice would need to be issued from your new state. In the age of paper and carbon copies and regular mail, that could take 1-2 years.)

Why do you need to smile and look bit happy to make a likeable first impression?
Hey I have a smile on my Facebook page and here in this Tim Hortons coffee shop even though I am reading about Tyrosine kinase mechanisms.
Find out the answer on Science Friday.
We listened to @SciFri Science Friday this week and do every Friday in the Mitton lab and PRRL. Its mandatory radio education if you want to hang with this gene man and do research.
Ask Austen, OU/WB Med-1 researcher. She set up her TNF alpha gene expression assays of human retinal endothelial cells on our Science Friday lab bench. On its top shelf is my old boombox tuned to NPR. Its older than Austen!
Also they covered: Robot Rules, Future of Money, Athlete Body Clock, Video Pick
Listen to Ira Flato on NPR.
Making laws for drones and robots, a look at next-gen payment systems, how circadian rhythms affect sports performance, and a video about face judgments.
