NASA's 19th annual Great Moonbuggy Race will be run at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Ala., on April 13-14, 2012. The expressions from these young racers tell the story of the race better than words ever can. They truly are the "face of the race." Good luck to all of the teams!
Check out all the details on the 2012 Great Moonbuggy Race. Winning teams will be posted on Saturday evening (April 14, 2012):

Editor's Note: This image isn't from one of the satellites that Marshall manages, but I'm posting it as a helpful link. NASA is consolidating all of its current tsunami images on this page: www.nasa.gov/topics/earth/features/japanquake/index.html. Hope this helps!
NASA’s Terra satellite's first view of northeastern Japan in the wake of a devastating earthquake and tsunami reveal extensive flooding along the coast. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) acquired the right image of the Sendai region on March 12, 2011, at 10:30 a.m. The left image, taken by Terra MODIS on February 26, 2011, is provided as a point of reference.
Water is black or dark blue in these images. It is difficult to see the coastline in the March 12 image, but a thin green line outlines the shore. This green line is higher-elevation land that is above water, presumably preventing the flood of water from returning to the sea. The flood indicator on the left image illustrates how far inland the flood extends.

Welders work on the twin towers of a 215-foot-tall structural test stand for NASA's Space Launch System (SLS), the world's most powerful rocket for human space exploration, at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. When construction is completed, hydraulic cylinders at Test Stand 4693 will push and pull the liquid hydrogen tank of the SLS’s massive core stage to subject the tank and hardware to the same loads and stresses they will endure during launch. Test Stand 4693 is being built in Marshall's West Test Area on the foundation of the stand where the Apollo Saturn V F-1 engine was tested during the 1960s. (Photo courtesy Brasfield & Gorrie)
