Comet Siding Spring buzzes Mars, but NASA orbiters and rovers are safe

Comet Siding Spring shaved past a planet’s surface at one third the distance of the Earth to the moon. But it wasn’t Earth in the cross hairs — it was our neighbor Mars.

The comet came so close that Mars Odyssey, Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and the Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) had to duck and cover on the other side of the planet.

They’re all OK, NASA said in a statement. It will take a few days for them to transfer pictures and data to Earth.

Siding Spring has moved on. The comet does not pose a threat to Earth and was headed back out to the outer reaches of the solar system, NASA said.

Life Emergence

"A single thread of self generation ties the cosmos, the bios, and the technos together into one creation. Humans are not the culmination of this trajectory but an intermediary, smack in the middle between the born and the made… The arc of complexity and open-ended creation in the last four billion years is nothing compared to what lies ahead."

She’s America’s youngest female billionaire - and a dropout

Elizabeth Holmes left Stanford University at 19 with a plan to start her own company. For money, she cashed out the funds her parents had saved for tuition. Now, she counts billionaire Larry Ellison as an investor and has former secretaries of state on her board.

If you’re also interested in attempting to start your own company and once you have a solid framework, I highly recommend going to your Secretary of State’s website for whichever state you’re in and for around $50 you can purchase essentially your own Company and name to get you started.
