    Great Camera Positioning! JUNEAU, Alaska -- The Coast Guard's Civil Engineering Unit from Juneau and Controlled Demolition, Inc., brought down Alaska's tallest structure at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday in Port Clarence using controlled explosives. The Long Range Aids to Navigation tower at the Coast Guard LORAN Station was the tallest of its kind in the country but the condition of the tower was deteriorating and with no funding for repairs the tower was at ever-increasing risk of an uncontrolled collapse. Alaska Public TeleCommunications tower in Knik 30 miles north of Anchorage will become the states tallest structure at 808 feet. U.S. Coast Guard video.

    From NASA science news: Last week, on Feb. 11th, the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) lifted off from Cape Canaveral on a five-year mission to study the sun. Researchers have called the advanced spacecraft the “crown jewel” of NASA’s heliophysics fleet. SDO will beam back IMAX-quality images of solar explosions and peer beneath the stellar surface to see the sun’s magnetic dynamo in action. SDO is designed to amaze—and it got off to a good start. “The observatory did something amazing before it even left the atmosphere,” says SDO project scientist Dean Pesnell of the Goddard Space Flight Center. Moments after launch, SDO’s Atlas V rocket flew past a sundog hanging suspended in the blue Florida sky and, with a rippling flurry of shock waves, destroyed it. Click on the image below to launch a video recorded by 13-year-old Anna Herbst at NASA’s Banana River viewing site—and don’t forget to turn up the volume to hear the reaction of the crowd.

    TAPS Day is done, gone the sun, From the hills, from the lake, From the sky. All is well, safely rest, God is nigh. Go to sleep, peaceful sleep, May the soldier or sailor, God keep. On the land or the deep, Safe in sleep. Love, good night, Must thou go, When the day, And the night Need thee so? All is well. Speedeth all To their rest. Fades the light; And afar Goeth day, And the stars Shineth bright, Fare thee well; Day has gone, Night is on. Thanks and praise, For our days, 'Neath the sun, Neath the stars, 'Neath the sky, As we go, This we know, God is nigh.
