lungatar shakatar

You see, in the lungatar, we have the final version; both bodies find
themselves incapable of touch; they remain apart, even in the fondest
caress. This requires considerable training on the part of the bodies and
their assignments to respective polygon multiplicities. Such flesh is
capable of clear training and retraining, once the palsy is captured, as
the shakatar, early stage of lungatar, indicates. 20 meg but worth it 6.6 meg but worth it

...cases of the almost-presence of ghost-avatars, ghastatars - ectoplasm,
poltergeists--interactions of the Other World with our own--in which the
Spirit in actually and embodiments affects the very physical being of
material objects, perhaps even one's consciousness...

But if there is, indeed, Cosmic Consciousness, to what extent does Spirit
relate in Spirits, much as Being relates in Beings within our own world?
And what are the expectations of Relation, beyond obvious parallelism?
Does Spirit touch Spirit? And for that matter, in our world, does Being
ever really touch Being?

NASA Mars Orbiter Photographs Spirit and Vikings on the Ground

New images from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter show three additional NASA
spacecraft that have landed on Mars: the Spirit rover active on the surface since January
2004 and the two Viking landers that successfully reached the surface in 1976.

The orbiter's high-resolution camera took a dramatic photograph of Spirit's twin rover,
Opportunity, at the edge of a Martian crater two months ago.

Besides providing new portraits of these robotic emissaries, the images provide scientists
valuable high-resolution information about the surrounding terrain at each site. This aids
both in interpreting other orbital data and in planning activities for surface missions.

The new images are available online at links from and . They are among the earliest from Mars Reconnaissance
Orbiter's primary science phase, which began in November.

"We know these sites well at ground level through the eyes of the cameras on Spirit and
the Viking landers," said Dr. Alfred McEwen of the University of Arizona, Tucson,
principal investigator for the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment camera on
Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. "Applying that knowledge as we view the new orbital
images will help us interpret what we see in orbital images from other parts of Mars never
seen from ground level."

The camera's view of Spirit in the midst of the "Columbia Hills" is quickly being put to use
by scientists and engineers who plan the rover's daily activities, just as a comparable image
taken two months ago of Spirit's twin, Opportunity, has aided that rover's work. A second
image of the Opportunity site has now been combined with the first for a stereo view.

The view of Viking Lander 1 from the high-resolution camera on Mars Reconnaissance
Orbiter reveals the spacecraft's back shell about 260 meters (850 feet) away and the heat
shield nearly four times that distant. The lander returned the first view from the surface of
Mars and kept operating for more than six years after its July 20, 1976, landing.

"The biggest surprise is that you can still see what appears to be the parachute after 30
years," said Dr. Tim Parker of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., whose
calculations helped determine where to point the orbital camera for seeing the Viking

Viking Lander 2, unlike Spirit and Viking Lander 1, had not been detected previously in
images from NASA's Mars Global Surveyor.  One feature that had been considered a
possibility in an earlier image turned out to be the Viking Lander 2's back shell, about 400
meters (a quarter mile) from the lander easily discerned in the image from the newer,
higher-resolution camera.

Parker is identifying some individual nicknamed rocks in the Viking-site images that are
prominent in famous photographs taken by the landers, such as "Ankylosaurus," a rough
rock about a meter (three feet) long near Viking Lander 2, and the larger "Big Joe" near
Viking Lander 1.

NASA made imaging of the Viking Lander 2 site an especially high priority for Mars
Reconnaissance Orbiter to help in evaluation of candidate landing sites for NASA's
Phoenix Mars Lander mission, being prepared for launch next summer.  Phoenix will land
at a far northern site, and the Viking Lander 2 site, though not as high-latitude as where
Phoenix will go, is the most comparable site of any seen from the surface of Mars.

"The Viking Lander 2 site, with its combination of lander-based and orbiter-based
imaging, gives us an important anchor for evaluating the ground roughness and boulder
densities at sites where we have only orbital imaging," said Dr. Ray Arvidson of
Washington University in St. Louis, chair of NASA's Phoenix Landing Site Working

The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter is managed by JPL for NASA's Science Mission
Directorate, Washington. Lockheed Martin Space Systems, Denver, is the prime contractor
for the project and built the spacecraft. The High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment
is operated by the University of Arizona, and the instrument was built by Ball Aerospace
and Technology Corp., Boulder, Colo. For more information, visit .
