NEWScoop: Satellite Burns Up, Photog Reads In, Trains Won’t Die, Prof is DOA and More College Football

Like Father, Like Satellite
NASA, all out of finding metaphors for the space program, looked up to the skies to see one of its own burn up. The remnants may never be found, but they were not going to be looking for them anyway. They got 99 problems but a shuttle program ain’t one (and neither is the UARS satellite). Visit Scientific American for more on this story.

Photog Sees Things… Exactly as They Weren’t Before
Instead of life flashing before her eyes during a near-death experience, a photographer found what she wasn’t looking for instead. No “nature spirits” dominate her art work. They were there all along… Or were they?! Dun dun DUN! Visit MyFoxHouston for more on this story.

Planes, Trains or Automobiles? Automobiles, Obviously
Houston just can’t quit the idea of having rail transit zig-zagging the area. Just let it die, people. It’s not going to happen. It was a nice dream while it lasted, but face the facts and wake up sweating. Visit Off the Kuff for more on this story.

Everybody Gets an “A”… for “Attendance”
The “15 minute” rule was long gone by the time some students realized there was a bigger problem in their class. The professor wouldn’t be showing up anytime soon. No, he wasn’t busy grading papers or taking a cat nap before the lecture… He was in for the big sleep, as it were. Visit Abc13 for more on this story.

College Football: We Wantz MOAR
With the landscape of NCAA pigskin forever changing, what we need is more of the same. University of the Incarnate Word is looking for a little Division I love. It’s all the rage these days. All you need is a little gumption and a lack of football history. It’s a San Antonio uprising to the FBS. Visit Off the Kuff for more on this story.
