Satellite imagery from space agencies sought in search for missing Belle Isle woman

ORLANDO, Fla. – The family of a missing Belle Isle woman made a plea Tuesday for space agencies to provide satellite imagery as the search continues for Stephanie Hollingsworth.

There’s a $10,000 reward for information leading to Hollingsworth, who was last seen Sept. 25 at a Walmart shopping center at 5991 S. Goldenrod Road in Orlando.

Hollingsworth’s husband, Scott, and other family members held a news conference, along with Bill Moore, a retired Orlando police detective, who shared details about emerging technologies they want to use to help find Stephanie Hollingsworth’s 2000 Chevrolet Tahoe.

Moore said they’re seeking help from NASA, SpaceX, L3Harris Technologies, Microsoft, Amazon and Geospatial Enthusiasts.

“We can get lucky to have a satellite passing overhead to capture her either walking to the car or the car leaving that parking space,” Moore said. “The family requests the assistance of any corporation or individual to search stored satellite

NASA Ingenuity: Meet the woman launching a helicopter on Mars

What does it take to build a helicopter to fly on Mars? 

For starters, you can forget the remote control. Mars is more than 30 million miles away on a good day, so the time delay in sending and receiving signals means you couldn’t fly the spacecraft with a joystick — you have to send waypoints in advance from here on Earth and hope for the best.

It also needs to charge itself. And it has to be able to take off in the incredibly thin Martian atmosphere (roughly 100 times thinner than Earth’s atmosphere), meaning the entire helicopter — including solar panel, batteries, computers, rotors and landing gear — has to weigh less than 4 pounds. And how do you test it in a simulated

SC woman says technology gap became obstacle to finding new job

“I’m out here in a new world where there’s a lot of technology I don’t have access to,” Marianetta Smith said. “It’s a struggle in every area.”

ROCK HILL, S.C. — A 62-year-old Rock Hill woman said she was denied benefits, after losing much of her income because of the shutdown. To make matters worse, she said she struggled to compete in the virtual job market without the proper skills or resources.

Marianetta Smith said she wants to work and is actively looking for jobs, but she said it’s been tough without a computer in this virtual world.

“I’m out here in a new world where there’s a lot of technology I don’t have access to,” Smith said. “It’s a struggle in every area.”

Smith said she’s among those left behind in the pandemic. In fact, even the Zoom interview with WCNC Charlotte almost didn’t happen.

Woman Heard on Camera Begging Assailant Not to Harm Her Is Found Beaten to Death, Man Arrested

South Salt Lake Police Department Kaitlyn Barron

Her plaintive cries pierced the night, as she screamed, “Please don’t rape me!”

It was only after the sun came up that the partially clothed body of the young woman who spent her last moments begging for her life was found crumpled in a parking lot in Salt Lake, Utah.

On Sept. 28, police in South Salt Lake were called to a back parking lot at 2550 South 300 West in South Salt Lake City, Utah, about a report of a deceased, partially clothed female, the department says in a statement.

The woman has been identified as Kaitlyn Barron, 23, of San Antonio, Texas, The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

Barron “had been severely beaten” and was an “obvious victim to a homicide,” the statement says.

She was also the “potential victim of rape,” according to a probable cause statement, Fox 13 Now reports.

The Science Femme Was Allegedly a White Male Professor Who Posed as Woman of Color and Bullied Women

“The Science Femme” claimed to be a female academic. She claimed to have upended efforts by her social justice-obsessed department to draft a statement condemning racism.

And when Twitter users accused her of racism, she claimed to be a woman of color herself—and an immigrant to boot.

But The Science Femme, who tweeted from the handle @piney_the, wasn’t any of those things, digital sleuths began alleging late last month. Instead, they claimed, “she” was Craig Chapman, a white male assistant professor of chemistry at the University of New Hampshire. The allegations, bolstered by an internal chemistry department email, would make Chapman at least the fourth white academic revealed to have posed as a person of color in recent weeks.

In three of those cases, academics are accused of shamelessly trying to further their own careers. But in Chapman’s case, Twitter users who came into contact with @piney_the say the account

In 2024, if NASA’s plans come to fruition, a woman will walk on the surface of the moon. NASA announced the plan last year, but offered an update Monday to its Artemis program, laying out steps to send astronauts back to the moon for the first time since 1972. 

The plan includes pairing the powerful Space Launch System rocket with an Orion spacecraft in an unmanned test flight next year. That mission will be called Artemis I. Artemis II will launch in 2023 with astronauts aboard who will fully test Orion’s navigational prowess. All of this will lead up to Artemis III in 2024. 

Artemis III will lay the groundwork for longer lunar missions and more surface exploration. NASA is sending scientific equipment

NASA this week revealed new details of its plan to put a woman on the moon by 2024, including the cost and planned landing site for the mission.

The space agency estimates the cost of the mission at $28bn.
