U.S. ARMY YUMA PROVING GROUND, YUMA, ARIZONA 85365 | VOLUME 65 NO. 14 MONDA Y, JUL Y 11, 2016 Updates to REAL ID, what you should know /Page 4 Mobility Test Article (MTA) of the 1960s /Page 8 Extreme Weather Safe Driving Tips /Page 9 Y1By Chuck Wullenjohn Conducting an individual test can be an unbelievably complicated undertaking, particularly when dealing with an expensive one-of-akind system. Late Junes test of the parachutes destined for use aboard NASAs Orion spacecraft is a case in point, for it involved a vast number of complex moving parts that had to mesh together in a precise, carefully planned and thought-out manner. These included several aircraft Ca., additional aircraft from Laguna stations at several points at YPG, and an exceptionally wide variety, dozens, of technical experts. The parachute system for Orion is a complex system of its own, comprised of 11 different parachutes which operate to slow it down and bring it to a safe earth landing. The systems three primary parachutes are made of tough nylon Though NASA has conducted 17 previous parachute drops at YPG, planners say each deployment is slightly different. The parachutes are packed under thousands of pounds of pressure it takes over a week to pack a main parachute, said Koki Nachin, NASA chief engineer for the capsule parachute assembly system. In the are in now, we will demonstrate that the parachute system works as expected within the predicted range of performance. He says NASA plans for an unmanned Orion mission to go into current director of NASAs Johnson Space Center, was on hand to witness what was to be the 18th YPG drop, but it was ultimately aborted due to an oxygen system problem aboard the C-17 aircraft carrying the parachutes and payload. She is a strong believer in the overall value of the testing. It doesnt matter how well the rest of a space mission goes, if the parachutes dont work properly at the end, you dont have a successful mission, she said. Im responsible for the safety of our astronauts and for the success of the Orion program, and what goes on here is a key component of that success. Ochoa has an interesting background. An astronaut for 12 Hispanic astronaut in world history. NASA parachute drop at YPG aborted SEE NASA page 3Your body repairs itself when you stop smoking /Page 2 It was "all systems go" for the NASA space capsule parachute test on June 29th until an oxygen problem aboard the C-17 aircraft ying the payload and parachute system forced the test to be aborted. If everything had gone as planned, this is how a successful descent would have looked.

This was her second visit to YPG, her when NASA conducted a test of vehicle, which was proposed to be an emergency escape vehicle for the international space station. That project was later cancelled. Ochoa says American astronauts have traveled in space each day for the past 15 years as members of the crew aboard the international space station and 250 miles above the earth. All crews are transported to and from the station by Soyuz spacecraft launched in Russia and says the partnership between NASA and the Russian Space Agency is extremely strong. experiments are ongoing aboard the international space station at any one time, she says, plus we use the station as a test bed for further space exploration. Ochoa says NASA tests components and systems aboard the station will help the agency conduct deep space missions. The Orion spacecraft, the largest spacecraft ever built, will be capable of revisiting the moon, an asteroid, and even the planet Mars.

Others have an intense fear of numbers called Numerophobia. This is obviously not true for those working with numbers and gures on a daily basis, so we asked members of YPGs Resource Management team why they chose their profession and what they enjoy most about it? Michele Dominguez, Staff Auditor. I originally attended school to study linguistics (American Sign Language and Spanish) in California. After serving in the Army, I attended the University of Houston at a satellite location that did not offer linguistics as a major. I researched the top 10 majors and selected the one I was most interested in, which was accounting. Accounting has allowed me the versatility of being a part of many different industries. What I like most about accounting is helping other people and being part of a team that works towards a common goal. They say you have to be a people person to work in Tina Manns, Chief, Manpower & Force Management. Although I dont fear numbers, and deal with them every day in my job, I dont feel I am good with them. I retired from the Army as a signaleer, profession. The great part of working in Manpower is that no two days are the same because the functional forces and numbers. I used to count my blessings that I do not work in budget or accounting because numbers challenges. Growing up I always wanted to be a teacher, then life happened and here I am with no with numbers!Minda Federmeyer, Accountant. I have always loved math. No fear of numbers here, my fear involves writing or speaking! I originally began my studies in Nursing because I love helping people. I loved the math and chemistry elements, but didnt like the other things, like dealing with blood and guts, so I came naturally and accounting is challenging and interesting, so Resource Management is the best place for me to be.

THE OUTPOST JULY 11, 2016 7Y7 SHOOTIN THE BREEZE Its Magic By David J. Horn One of the things about living in Yuma, is although were very fortunate to have the Colorado River and several lakes in the area, if you are a water sports enthusiast, you still cant be too picky. People moving into Yuma from areas with big water months in town looking at nothing but sand and creosote bushes, so their honest reaction is, Wow!! Look at all that water! Like a lot of people in Yuma, I have a small house, with a small back yard, and even smaller side yards with only room for a small trailer with a small said that he had a small sailboat he wanted to sell so he could get the money to buy a new battery for his compared to the big boat I sailed in a previous life, it would be like going from a Harley down to a whizzer. Anyway, two hundred bucks and one handshake later, I was the proud owner of a Montgomery 10. And, it is funto sail around who dont seem to have much else going on except to watch me, with one hand on the tiller and the other on the mainsails sheet line, cruise ropes as I go up, down, and across the lake. When I approach the shore during a tacking maneuver, little kids run to the edge of the water with their eyes wide opento them, its like a big white 747 coming in to land on their campsite. Just like staring into must be taken very seriously very There is no time to reach over and put on a life jacket within the 2 microseconds it takes that boat to heel over. There is no texting while sailing. The boat launch ramp too, is one of the most entertaining shows in town. A couple of weeks ago, a guy trying to use the big motor to run it up on a semi-submerged trailer, when with a little too much throttle, he launched that boat right up over the front roller and into the rear window of his pickup topper. And then there was the guy who after getting his boat positioned and sitting on the rollers, but not yet strapped down, drove up the ramp so fast that when he hit a big bump with one trailer wheel, he literally bounced the boat off the trailer where it landed upside down on the concrete. Never a dull moment. As for me, Ive always noticed that when I bring my sailboat back to the dock, there are people who ask me, So, how do you sail against the wind? I always just say, Its Magic. After saying that so many times, I put letters on the stern HP bass boat, a pontoon, waterski boat, Jet Ski, kayak, or inner tube put on some sunscreen and enjoy the water around Yuma. Get out there and always wear a life jacket and do watch yourself around that boat ramp. CHAPLAINS CORNER The Measure of a Man Submitted by Chaplain (Maj.) Douglas Thomison I preached a message that Sunday which is the title of this article, The Measure of a Man. I wont get too preachy, but I felt it would be important to share this with the readers of the Outpost. In measurements, we live in a world that depends on agencies that go around surveying and devices that make sure that companies are being honest in Administration to the building industry, there has to be some form of measurements for accuracy and honesty. On the spiritual side, a man could be measured by what he abhorrent (disgusting) to your soul. Paul gives the indication that it is to be a lifelong pursuit that we are never to stop pursuing after agony. Paul is informing us that every step of the way, there will be I have a list from a very old book which dates back to the 1600s. The title of this little book is The Godly Mans Portrait by Thomas Watson. The reason I feel this book is important is because Watson describes what he feels a Godly supposed measured by. A man: of knowledge, moved of humility, of prayer, of sincerity, zealous, patient, thankful, walks with God, serves God, trained in religion, and can weep. I asked myself, how do I measure against these in my walk with God and those around me? Instead of men who are pursuing the American dream, or chasing after empty pots of gold, or giving themselves a pass that leans toward laziness and checking out from responsibility, these are some measurements that are going to what if there were just a handful of men who wanted to say, I want to measure up to what God wants me to be! Our churches would change, our families would change, and our destinations would change. is that we pursue the things that God measures men by. Please visit the Oasis (Post) Chapel, its a closer drive!
