Quotes

"An old growth forest in the Philadelphia area supplied the white oak used in the ship's frame and ... the trees were probably cut in 1773 or so -- a few years before the bloody war that established America's independence from Britain" according to a statement from the scientists...
...anniversary milestone," said MESSENGER Mission Operations Manager Andy Calloway, of the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL). "The MESSENGER spacecraft operates in one of the most challenging and demanding space environments in our Solar System, and we have met that challenge directly through innovation and hard work, as exemplified by the stunning discoveries and data return achievements. Our only regret is that we have insufficient propellant to operate another 10 years, but we look forward to the incredible science returns planned for the final eight months of the mission."
"In the planning phase, the goal is to design a survey that will make as little an impact [on marine life] as possible," Haines told Live Science. "In the operational phase, we try to even further reduce that impact."
"Philadelphia was one of the most - if not the most - important shipbuilding cities in the U S at the time. And they had plenty of wood so it made lots of sense that the wood could come from there."
