NASA Makes History with New Horizons’ Flyby of Pluto

By Daniel Morgan, Advertising Manager

After an almost decade-long journey spanning more than three billion miles, NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft made its closest approach to Pluto on Tuesday, July 14, 2015 at 7:49 a.m. ET.

The spacecraft came within 7,750 miles above the dwarf planet’s surface, which is about the same distance between New York and Mumbai, India.

This is the first space mission in history to explore a world so far from Earth. Not only does this feat speak volumes for NASA, but it solidifies the United States’ undeniable role as the leader in space exploration.

Brian William’s Return Demonstrates NBC’s Politics

By Daniel Morgan, Advertising Manager

Lester Holt has nicely situated into his permanent stay as NBC Nightly News solo anchor. After ‘filling in’ for Brian Williams since February, it is no surprise that Holt got the job. However, it is a surprise that NBC kept Williams after his distorted statements regarding his 2003 helicopter flight in Iraq. Or is it?

After his respected decade of leading the popular half-hour news slot, it is hard for the network to give Williams the boot. Even though he lied about his whereabouts in Iraq, he still managed to make his mark on the news industry and capture the hearts of Americans everywhere. But does a decade of credibility justify a blatant lie.
