One Year After Launch, Curiosity Rover Busy on Mars11.26.2012 (November 26,2012)
Panoramic View From 'Rocknest' Position of Curiosity Mars Rover
This panorama is a mosaic of images taken by the #Mast#Camera (Mastcam) on the #NASA Mars rover Curiosity while the rover was working at a site called "Rocknest" in October and November 2012.
The center of the 3scene, looking eastward from #Rocknest, includes the Point Lake area. After the component #images for this scene were taken, #Curiosity drove 83 feet (25.3 meters) on Nov. 18 from Rocknest to Point Lake. From Point Lake, the #Mastcam is taking images for another detailed #panoramic view of the area further east to help #researchers identify candidate targets for the #rover's first #drilling into a #rock.
The image has been white-balanced to show what the rocks and soils in it would look like if they were on #Earth. The raw-color version, shows what the scene looks like on #Mars to the #camera.
Researchers say they found strong evidence that more exercise was associated with better academic achievement among children.

Pint of beer a day keeps the doctor away: It’s well known that red wine can benefit your heart but a new study announced last week touts the health benefits of beer.
Published in the European Journal of Epidemiology, the study is an analysis of 16 studies involving more than 200,000 participants. Researchers found that people who
drank about a pint of beer a day had a 31% reduced risk of heart disease. For those who consumed more alcohol, either beer, wine, or liquor, their risk “surged,” noted MyHealthNewsDaily.
