So I always run across, as many of you do, stories or articles about interesting stuff. It can be whatever. History, discoveries, adventure, expedition. These things don’t always have a home in a topic but they are worthwhile shares since, for many of the stories, they garner limited attention so they are easy to miss.
Here is a home to share them. If the thread dies so be it. F all of you. Pasty liberals need not participate. Here is my first just because it’s fairly current. Side note the Paul Allen, founder of Microsoft set up a high tech research vessel, R/V Petrel, yo,try and locate historically significant wrecks. They have found many others before this one.
They have located the wreck of the USS Hornet, an Aircraft carrier lost in October 1943. The wreckage was found over 17700 feet down and since it is so cold it is amazingly well preserved.

I love Paul Allen.  Got to work with him indirectly a number of projects.   Wicked fast on the uptake.  

For around here he was pretty conservative.  But he did support a gun measure in Washington to raise the buying age and background checks. 

He did so many cool things in his life.  What a surprise that cancer got him.  I know so many that have survived, and he had all that money.

NASA has said goodbye to Mars Rover Opportunity. Initially designed for a 90 day mission the rover lasted for 15 years. Sending back info from the red planet.
Here is a good thread giving some details.

Sad news. Mars rover #Opportunity is probably done. Sometime tonight, a team @NASAJPL will make their final attempt to contact #Oppy. If they can't, they'll likely call the mission. Here's what happened... 1/
