After 35 Years of Travel, Voyager Still Going Strong

Friday, September 7th, 2012 | Author:

Thirty-five years ago this week, Voyager 1 was launched. Its mission—along with its sister craft, Voyager 2 (which, interestingly enough, was launched two weeks earlier)—was to explore the outer reaches of our solar system and the beginnings of interstellar space. Aboard each craft was a gold-plated audio disc containing sounds, images and messages from Earth, on the off-chance either was ever found by intelligent life from outside the Solar System.

In 1979 and 1980, Voyager 1 visited Jupiter and Saturn, respectively. While there, the craft provided the first high-resolution pictures and conducted other studies of the two planets and their respective satellites. This resulted in the first views of Jupiter’s ring system, discovery of volcanic activity on the moon Io, the first close analysis of the atmosphere of Titan, and detection of complex structures in Saturn’s rings.

Celebrate May with a Mother of a Garage Sale.

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012 | Author:

We’re well into May now, which means we’re at the height of Spring. Days are considerably longer, flowers are blooming, and that whack-a-doodle robin that’s been attacking my bedroom window every morning for the past month has built a nest on the deck railing next to my front door instead. Of course, it’s also time to remember Mom and all that she’s done for us.

While Mothers’ Day has already past, that doesn’t mean you can’t get that special lady a little something extra “just because” – especially if it makes that special computer in her life run a little faster, smoother, or just plain better. Our monthly Garage Sale has a bevy of great deals on popular upgrades, so there’s a good chance we’ve got just what will make her digital life better. Here’s just a hint of what’s available this month:

As always, you need to act fast – items are “first come, first served” and of varying limited quantities. Quantities are limited to that which is on hand and items automatically count down and ‘disappear’ as sold out. Sorry… no rain checks.
