bon appetite - And financially, Georgia’s reopening guidelines are pretty thorny too. While the original rule stating that restaurants could seat 10 customers per 500 feet of public space was adjusted on May 12 to allow 10 customers per 300 feet, that’s still well under 50 percent capacity for all but the largest restaurants. “Our restaurants are not made for those guidelines,” Gianni [tells MARA SHALHOUP]. “We only make money if we’re packed out.

New map of SARS-CoV-2 infection in nasal cavity provides more support for wearing masks, researchers say
Fox News - The new study published in the journal Cell suggests that the virus first tends to firmly establish itself in the nasal cavity, but it can then be aspirated into the lungs -- where it wreaks havoc and can lead to pneumonia.
Scientists at the UNC School of Medicine and the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health believe their study supports the widespread wearing of masks as a way to prevent infection.
"If the nose is the dominant initial site from which lung infections are seeded, then the widespread use of masks to protect the nasal passages, as well as any therapeutic strategies that reduce virus in the nose, such as nasal irrigation or antiviral nasal sprays, could be beneficial," said study co-senior author Richard Boucher, a professor of medicine and director of the Marsico Lung Institute at the UNC School of Medicine, in a statement.

NASA's InSight lander has had a pretty triumphant run on Mars investigating marsquakes and listening to the weird sounds of the red planet. There's been one sticking point, though: Mars hasn't welcomed the lander's heat probe, known as the "mole."
The heat probe is designed to hammer into Mars, burrow down deep and take the planet's internal temperature, but the probe kept popping out of the ground. NASA and the mole team have spent over a year working through possible solutions for the stuck mole, and they may finally be making some progress. Read more from CNET

Nate Scott USA TODAY Sports - "You’d think that the thing holding pro sports up would be concerns about coronavirus, and how to safely get players back on the field. If not that, then dealing with the logistics of isolating players away from families for extended periods of time.
That’s not the hold up right now, at least when it comes to MLS and MLB. The hold up is money." Read more.
