Swift calculates water production of Mars-bound comet Siding Spring

In late May, NASA’s Swift satellite imaged comet Siding Spring, which will brush astonishingly close to Mars on October 19, 2014. These optical and ultraviolet observations are the first to reveal how rapidly the comet is producing water and allow astronomers to better estimate its size. “Comet Siding Spring is making its first passage through the inner solar system and is experiencing its first strong heating from the sun,” said lead researcher Dennis Bodewits, an astronomer at the University of Maryland College Park (UMCP). “These observations are part of a two-year-long Swift campaign to watch how the comet’s activity develops during its travels.”This graphic depicts the orbit of comet C/2013 A1 Siding Spring as it swings around the sun in 2014.

TEPCO’s Tents For Tanks Plan At Fukushima Daiichi

TEPCO has told the NRA that they intend to cover contaminated water tanks at Fukushima Daiichi with some form of tent to help eliminate rainwater build up and contamination.
TEPCO presented 6 ideas for how they might try to cover the tanks. Some appear more effective than others. There does not appear to be a timeline or deadline for this work yet.
1 proposed gutter + Weir cover system

2 to plan tank top roof installation plan.

3 proposal for membrane material tent

4 draft simple roof system

5 large tents method

6 proposed permanent structure systems
