Possible Mars Mission 'Showstopper': Vision Risks for Astronauts
 

The Mars mission, developed by ISRO, is slated for lift off from India’s launch facility at Sriharikota in October or November. 

Mars may possess a stark and austere beauty, but a manned Red Planet mission will likely not be easy on the eyes.

Recently, scientists have begun realizing that spaceflight can cause serious and perhaps permanent vision problems in astronauts. NASA researchers are working hard to understand the issue, which could present a major hurdle to mounting manned missions to Mars and other faraway destinations.

"This is one that we don't yet have a good handle on, and it can be a showstopper," Mark Shelhamer, chief scientist for the NASA Human Research Program at Johnson Space Center in Houston, said last week during a presentation with the agency's Future In-Space Operations (FISO) working group. [The Human Body in Space: 6 Weird Facts]

Another peril of microgravity

The human body suffers in the microgravity environment of space. For example, without effective countermeasures — i.e., vigorous weight-bearing exercise — astronauts' muscles atrophy and their bones shed calcium, becoming more and more brittle over time.

Spaceflight can also affect the eyes. Researchers have known this for decades, but they're just now beginning to appreciate the gravity of the situation.

In 1782, Thomas Jefferson wrote,

" I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His Justice cannot sleep forever." hmmm....

In 1838 Abraham Lincoln once said:

" At what point shall we expect the approach of danger?..... Answer; If it ever reaches us, it must spring up amongest us, It cannot come from abroad, If desruction be our lot, we must ourselves be it's author and finisher." 

In 1951 Harry Truman once said:

" I have the feeling that God has created us and brought us to our present position of power and strength for some great purpose." 

 Sir Isaac Newton, scholar, mathematician and one of the greatest scientific mind's in human history, once said,

" In the absence of any other proof, the human thumb alone would convice me of God's existence."

    Rajon Rondo's "Boston Strong" Shoes Are Outstanding

    View image on Twitter

     
     

    Rajon Rondo just tweeted this photo of the shoes he wore tonight to honor the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. In short, they are exceptional. The kicks bear the initials of the victims on various areas of the shoe along with the words “Boston Strong” and the date of the incident on the tongue, which aptly serves as a marathon tag. Thoughtful touch.

     

    Thunder clinch No. 2 seed, Clippers take No. 3 seed

    Few expected the Thunder to get hung up on the Detroit Pistons on the last night of the season to clinch their playoff seed, but they nearly did before eking out a win at home. With the victory, the Thunder secured the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference and a first round matchup with the Memphis Grizzlies. The Clippers will be the No. 3 seed, and open a series against the Golden State Warriors.

    Though the game was pretty close the whole night, the Thunder pulled the deficit close in the fourth before pulling out the victory on the shoulders of Kevin Durant's 21 fourth-quarter points (he scored 42 total), finally gaining the lead on one of his almighty dunks.

    Kdunk

    Russell Westbrook (22 points) and Reggie Jackson (15 points) also starred in the win for Oklahoma City.

    The opening series with the Grizzlies is a rematch of a second round playoff series from last season. The Grizzlies won 4-1, but the Thunder were playing without the injured Westbrook.

     

    Chicago Bulls vs. Charlotte Bobcats

    Chicago is fighting to steal the third spot in the East away from the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night. The Bulls haven't lost a game to Charlotte all season (3-0) and are 8-2 over their last 10 games. Joakim Noah has been a double-double machine, and the typically-staunch Tom Thibodeau defense has been on point.

    In order to vault the Raptors for the No. 3 seed, Toronto will have to drop a game at Madison Square Garden that same night. Charlotte hasn't had good luck against Chicago this year, but have considerable momentum as they close out the season. They've won eight of their last 10 games and their own defensive strategy has played a considerable part. Look for the battle between Noah and Al Jefferson to be the deciding factor in Charlotte.

     

    Dallas Mavericks vs. Memphis Grizzlies

    Dallas has done a great job getting to where they are at today. After fighting through the scrum at the bottom of the Western Conference, they've clinched a playoff spot. They just don't know which one. With the Suns eliminated from contention on Monday night, it has come down to the final day of the regular season for the Mavericks as they try for the No. 7 seed. Dallas will end up playing either San Antonio, Los Angeles or Oklahoma City in the first round. They've fared the best against the Thunder, but to even get that chance they'll need to beat Memphis on Wednesday.

    That's going to be a tough challenge considering how good the Grizzlies have looked lately. They played the Suns tough on Monday night in a playoff atmosphere game, squeezing out a win down the stretch for the opportunity to play in the postseason. They've allowed an opponent to score 100 points just once since Mar. 3, and their dominance on the glass has been phenomenal. Marc Gasol is averaging 17.5 points and 8.5 rebounds per game over the last 10 games. It's safe to say he's healthy and ready for a run through the playoffs.
