Images of Red Rock Coulee By Al Popil

Hi Don, Some snaps from Red Rock Coulee, 60k south of Medicine Hat, Alberta. Just an observation. I’ve been going there for a number of years and I’ve really noticed the deterioration of the concretions. These are sandstone concretions with iron ore and are up to 2.5m in diameter, among the largest in the world. Me thinks in about 25 years there is not going to be much left of the concretions. Al.

On Standby

When a car skidded on wet pavement and struck a telephone pole, several bystanders ran over to help the driver. A woman was the first to reach the victim, but a man rushed in and pushed her aside. "Step aside, lady," he barked. "I've taken a course in first-aid!"

The woman watched for a few minutes, then tapped him on the shoulder. "Pardon me," she said. "But when you get to the part about calling a doctor, I'm right here."

Alien Megastructure? 'Tabby's Star' Continues to Baffle Scientists

Alien Megastructure?
Nearly a year after first making headlines around the world, "Tabby's star" is still guarding its secrets.

In September 2015, a team led by Yale University astronomer Tabetha Boyajian announced that a star about 1,500 light-years from Earth called KIC 8462852 had dimmed oddly and dramatically several times over the past few years.

These dimming events, which were detected by NASA's planet-hunting Kepler space telescope, were far too substantial to be caused by an orbiting planet, scientists said. (In one case, 22 percent of the star's light was blocked. For comparison, when huge Jupiter crosses the sun's face, the result is a dimming of just 1 percent or so.)

More on Space.
