Hall of Fame countdown: Chipper Jones a worthy addition to third base fraternity

  Hall of Fame countdown: Chipper Jones a worthy addition to third base fraternity Chipper Jones' 468 home runs rank third all-time among players who primarily played third base and he’s also third in homers by a switch-hitter , behind Hall of Famers Mickey Mantle and Eddie Murray.During his 18 full seasons in the majors, all of them spent with Atlanta, Jones was a paragon of offensive production. His MVP season of 1999 came amid a stretch of eight years in which he batted .313 and averaged 32 homers and 107 RBI.

Ashley Graham Models Bikinis Alongside Her Mom in New Swimsuits for All Campaign

  Ashley Graham Models Bikinis Alongside Her Mom in New Swimsuits for All Campaign Ashley Graham teamed up with an extra special someone to model her latest limited edition Swimsuits for All capsule collection. The 30-year-old model designed her fifth capsule collection with the inclusive swimwear brand (available online now!), and recruited her mom and role model, Linda Graham, to model the Resort 2018 pieces with her on-location in Agadir, Morocco to celebrate Swimsuit for All’s Power of the Journey campaign. “My mom has been my role model since childhood and has played a vital role in developing my confidence,” Graham said in a release. “She promoted body positivity in our household before it was a movement. Her feel-good attitude toward her own body has shaped my ability to remain positive and self-assured,” Graham continued. “I could not think of anyone better to join me in celebrating beauty of all shapes and sizes in this campaign. Plus, she’s hot and looks incredible in the suits!” The model and her mom posed in a series of swimsuits from sexy string bikinis to colorful cutout one pieces in the desert and on the beaches of Morocco.

Graham continued to promote body positivity when designing all of the pieces in her new capsule by making sure each one would flatter all shapes and sizes.

Our solar system ’s first known interstellar visitor is likely even more alien than previously imagined, a new study suggests. Nobody knows for sure where ‘Oumuamua came from or how long it’s been voyaging through deep space. But the odds are good that it was born into a binary system that

That's the latest from astronomers who were amazed by the mysterious cigar-shaped object, detected as it passed through our inner solar system last fall.

The University of Toronto's Alan Jackson reported Monday that the asteroid — the first confirmed object in our solar system originating elsewhere — is probably from a binary star system. That's where two stars orbit a common center. According to Jackson and his team, the asteroid was likely ejected from its system as planets formed.

"It has been wandering interstellar space for a long time since," the scientists wrote in the Royal Astronomical Society's journal, Monthly Notices .

Discovered in October by a telescope in Hawaii millions of miles away, the asteroid is called Oumuamua, Hawaiian for messenger from afar arriving first, or scout. The red-tinged rock is estimated to be possibly 1,300 feet (400 meters) long and zooming away from the Earth and sun at more than 16 miles (26 kilometers) per second.

The ISS was never supposed to end like this

  The ISS was never supposed to end like this New plan to defund space station opens up some surprising possibilities.When the Trump administration released its latest budget proposal on Feb. 11, fans of human space exploration were dismayed to learn that it included plans to end America's involvement in the International Space Station.

New research suggests that the 1 st confirmed interstellar asteroid - called 'Oumuamua' by astronomers - likely came from a system where 2 stars But this object from another star system wasn’t entirely unexpected. In fact, astronomers had expected to see interstellar asteroids before this.

Last month, a science team led by Wesley Fraser of Queen's University Belfast reported that Oumuamua is actually tumbling through space, likely the result of a collision with another asteroid or other object that kicked it out of its home solar system. He expects it to continue tumbling for billions of more years.

Scientists originally thought it might be an icy comet, but now agree it is an asteroid.

"The same way we use comets to better understand planet formation in our own solar system, maybe this curious object can tell us more about how planets form in other systems." Jackson said in a statement.

Close binary star systems may be the source of the majority of interstellar objects out there, both icy comets and rocky asteroids, according to the researchers.

Afraid of heights in space: NASA astronaut details flight .
When NASA astronaut Joseph Acaba was out doing a spacewalk during a recent trip to the International Space Station, he held on tight. That's because Acaba is afraid of heights."If you look at the pictures, I'm holding on to the railing," he told a crowd at the Stennis Space Center on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. "It does take a little bit of work while you're doing a spacewalk to realize, okay, it's okay. You are not going to fall."Acaba was making his first public appearance — on the ground — since his Feb. 28 return from the space station.
