Now this is news. History, in fact.

News Alert: Mars helicopter Ingenuity successfully completed its historic first flight
The Ingenuity helicopter has successfully completed its historic flight on Mars and safely landed back on the surface, according to NASA.

The first powered, controlled flight on another planet took place at 3:30 a.m. ET.

Unlike when the helicopter's fellow traveler, the Perseverance rover, landed on Mars on February 18, there was a bit of wait to know how the helicopter fared in its attempt.

Sort of hard to believe. Assumed he'd get off somehow but there you go. BLM.

News Alert: Chauvin guilty on all three charges
Former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin was convicted Tuesday on charges of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd.

The jury of five men and seven women deliberated for four hours Monday afternoon and resumed deliberating Tuesday morning, according to the court. They were sequestered from the public during deliberations.

Chauvin, 45, had pleaded not guilty to second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.

I always think of this poem whenever I hear news stories about our ongoing adventures in outer space...



Gil Scott-Heron - Whitey on the Moon

Might be time for someone to do another version with a slight update on the lyrics.

Given the terrible news of the fire in the hospital in Iraq, I feel this man's quiet heroism needs to be highlighted. I doubt I could have done what he did.

A man who had been visiting his brother described people jumping out of windows to escape.

"The fire spread, like fuel ... I took my brother out to the street, next to the checkpoint. Then I came (back) and went up from there. To the last floor, that did not burn. I found a girl suffocating, about 19 years old, she was suffocating, she was about to die," said Ahmed Zaki.

"I took her on my shoulders and I ran down. People were jumping... Doctors fell on the cars. Everyone was jumping. And I kept going up from there, got people and come down again," he said.
