Speakeasy, a gala sponsored by Boulder Lifestyle magazine and dozens of businesses and individuals in Boulder County. More than 260 people gathered at the Marriott Westminster to celebrate the high quality healthcare that TRU Hospice has been offering since 1976. TRU is Colorado’s first hospice program, and is the only nonprofit hospice in Boulder and Broomfield Counties. Silent and live auctions featuring art, jewelry and travel highlighted the evening along with a special speakeasy cocktail from Roundhouse Spirits, dinner and dancing to live music from Swing Je’Taime.

NEW SPACE TELESCOPE CONCEPT COULD IMAGE OBJECTS AT FAR HIGHER RESOLUTION THAN HUBBLE University of Colorado Boulder researchers will update NASA officials next week on a revolutionary space telescope concept selected by the agency for study last June that could provide images up to 1,000 times sharper than the Hubble Space Telescope. CU-Boulder Professor Webster Cash said the instrument package would consist of an orbiting space telescope and an opaque disk in front of it that could be up to a half mile across. According to Cash, diffracted light waves from a target star or other space object would bend around the edges of the disk and converge in a central point. That light would then be fed into the orbiting telescope to provide high-resolution images. The new telescope concept could allow scientists to image space objects like black hole “event horizons” and plasma swaps between stars, says Cash. The novel telescope system also could point toward Earth and image objects as small as a rabbit, giving it the ability to hunt for lost campers in the mountains.

OSMP has closed the Sanitas Valley Trail, except for two small segments that connect with other trails, as the department re-grades and resurfaces the flood-damaged trail, and completes drainage repairs.
