I've seen images like that before. It is still going, but I read somewhere that it goes a lot slower now because more than one wheels are broken like that, so they avoid using them or put less weight on them.

Yeah, I'm guessing NASA doesn't officially recognize grow ops, though. ;)

The interesting part here is that it is preparation for a possible Mars or moon mission.

Does this belong here? maybe this is more engineering and technology?

Railway company sues workers over train crash
The Norfolk Southern Railway Co. lawsuit says locomotive engineer Kevin Tobergte and conductor Andrew Hall failed to reduce a train's speed and prevent its collision with another train.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports the March 18 crash in Georgetown destroyed two Norfolk Southern locomotives, derailed 13 cars and caused a fire and temporary evacuation. The lawsuit says the men are liable for damages to railway property and costs related to removing spilled fuel.

In fairness, light skin and reddish hair both came about as a result of moving to the more northern latitudes, so that probably isn't as far off as you might imagine.

3700 years ago isn't very long, and the genetic markers for light skin are pretty well known. I would assume they checked those.

Those faces are artistic representations of an estimate. All you can say is that face fits that skull and since the person lived in that area most likely looked like that.

Again "artistic representation". But yeah, the artist could make them have bad skin, or be fat, or whatever.

Baloney, nothing about moving north makes one fair-skinned or red-haired. Ask the Aleut/Inuk/Eskimo people who've actually physically evolved there over many thousands of years, possessing actual physical adaptations to Arctic climate. the first Homo Sapiens settlers to Europe were black Africans and they didn't get lighter, they got displaced and absorbed. However, the ancestors of the Celtic people, who were the whitest of the white offshoots of the central Asian ancestors of the Slavs, were quite well established in Northern Europe 3700 years ago.
