On Monday I caught a bit of the final moments of WUMD over FM. The community-focused college radio station at University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth is moving to an online-only format after its FM license was sold to Rhode Island Public Radio. To mark the occasion, WUMD aired special programming and shared video from the studio as it counted down its remaining time on FM. It was definitely bittersweet to witness the occasion from afar on WUMD's Facebook Live stream. Just before the switch over, various DJs and hosts said their FM farewells, which was very touching to watch. I challenge you to not break down in tears as they announce their final FM sign-off. Moments later, they transition to the online-only version of WUMD by opening with a Bob Marley track, heading into the future on an optimistic note.
I've been an intermittent participant in the Radio Survivor Podcast lately, but you can catch me chatting about recent college radio news on this week's episode. Additionally, I share my most recent radio station tour of community radio station WPPM-LP in Philadelphia. I've got three more station tours in the pipeline, including one bona fide college radio station.

spacecraft through the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter's orbit. Pioneers 10, 11 were launched in 1972 and 1973, and Jupiter accelerated to Saturn, the first to visit Jupiter and Saturn's detectors, and in 1989 they crossed Pluto's orbit and flew into deeper space. They all carry the globe card designed by Sagan. After confirming the maturity of the technology and the safety of the trip, Voyager 1 and 2 also set sail in 1977. Outside the sun system scenery On August 20, 1977, Voyager 2 was first launched from the Canaveral, Florida, by the Hercules 3 E-Sagittarius rocket, and on September 5, Voyager 1 was also launched and started Their glorious and long journey. Although Voyager 1 was half a month later than 2, but it entered the runway faster, so in December that year Coach Handbags Outlet to catch up with No. 2, and took the lead in 1979 to reach Jupiter. After the acceleration of the effective gravitational slingshoe effect, Voyager 1 flew faster than any existing aircraft, making it the farthest spacecraft from the sun, exceeding the pioneers 10 and 11. Voyager 2 flight speed slower flight path, but also 'blessing in disguise', able to maintain the ecliptic plane that is the orbit of Nike Free 6.0 the solar system planets, in 1981 through Saturn's gravity to Nike Air Max Shoes Outlet accelerate to Uranus and Neptune , Became the first ship to visit Uranus and Neptune's spacecraft, completed by the 176-year planets geometric array and visit the four giants giant planetary opportunities. Traveler No. 1 is early departure from the ecliptic. Traveler No. 1, No. 2 equipped with wide-angle and narrow-angle TV cameras, with 3.7 meters in diameter large high-gain antenna, launch quality 815 kg, 16 small engines, can accurately adjust its attitude, which can be more detailed observation Target planets. In January 1979, Voyager 1 began shooting Jupiter for the first time. On March 5 of the same year, it flew to a recent point of 349,000 kilometers from Jupiter Center. The 'navigator' has been able to gain a deep understanding of Jupiter's satellites, rings, magnetic fields and radiation belts in close-up flight for 48 hours due to the distance from such close distance, as well as high-definition camera resolution The The entire shooting process was finally completed in April of the same year. Traveler No. 1 on the observation of Jupiter and its satellite has a lot of important discoveries, found a new satellite, radiation properties, and found Jupiter as ever as never seen the planetary Coach Bags Totes ring, the ring is very small and weak, the ground telescope is difficult Find. The most surprising is the discovery of volcanic activity on the Europa. This was never observed on Earth, and even the pioneers 10 and 11 were not Cheap Coach Bags observed. The energy of the Europa activity comes from the giant tidal gravity of Jupiter. With Jupiter's gravitational force, Voyager 1 accelerated towards Saturn and swept Saturn in November 1980, less than 124,000 km from Saturn. Traveler No. 1 detects the complex structure of the beautiful Saturn ring, and observes the atmosphere on Titan. As a result of the discovery of Titan has a dense atmosphere, Jet Propulsion laboratory control staff finally decided to let travelers on the 1st approaching Titan VI, Shoes Outlet this decision also let its trajectory north from the ecliptic, visit Uranus and Neptune mission Had to give travelers on the 2nd. After leaving Saturn, the traveler on the 1st implementation of the camera has been very little task. In 1989, it had crossed the equivalent of Pluto orbit, position 32 degrees north of the ecliptic. In the 2009 Valentine's Day, it photographed the last batch of photos, Nike Casual Shoes Mens which is the famous dim blue dot with the solar system family portrait. Karl Sagan has had this idea for years, so that the 'navigator' will leave the solar system before, look back at the earth. There are two famous pictures of the earth, one is the 1968 Apollo 8 on the moon shot 'ground', the earth rose from the top of the moon; the other is the 1972 Apollo 17 to the moon on the way back The earth, the vast land of Africa and the clouds are clearly visible. These two photos let people see the earth is just an ordinary planet, which is the great achievement of human understanding of self. Sagan wants Voyager 1 to look back at Earth at the edge of the solar system and take a picture so that mankind will take a step back and see that the earth is actually just a little bit of an indomitable little in the vast universe. But shooting this photo is very resistant. First of all, this time Traveler No. 1 task has come to an end, the staff members to leave; and then the Earth is very close to the sun, the lens is too close to the sun, may be damaged; to take photos need to extend the mandate of 6 months, Cost is also a lot of money. Sagan repeatedly called no fruit. In 1989, he seized the opportunity to make an appeal last and informed his then president of NASA, Admiral Richard Trulli. The Admiral was told by Sagan to approve the action. Traveler No. 1 was 4 billion kilometers from Earth, and the time taken was to take pictures on February 14, 1990.
