Cap and gown means this is really it Yesterday morning I picked up my cap and gown for graduation. As if the multiple open house invitations I have received from my fellow classmates weren’t enough, having my cap and gown is now a definite reminder that I will be leaving WHS in just a Hear me. . . few short weeks. With that in mind, I have decided that Hannah Nieman making the most of these last weeks is crucial, and whether I believe it or not now, I’m going to miss everything about high school when I’m looking back on it in the coming years. So, I want to give you one last piece of advice,

Warriors—enjoy every moment you have here at WHS, because it goes by fast. I know that sounds cliché, and we’ve all heard it too many times to count, but when you’re a senior you start to realize how true that saying really is. As the year comes to a close at Honorfest next week, principal Jamie Nold usually sends the students out with something like, “You only take two things with you when you leave high school—your memories, and your education.” And with every year that passes, I never seemed to take that to heart as much as I know I will this year. I’m so thankful for all the memories I’ve made in my four years here, and I wouldn’t change them for anything. So, underclassmen, don’t forget to make as many memories in each year as you can, while you have the time. Senior Hannah Nieman will make the most of the next 15 days.

Possible habitable planet found By Amina Khan Los Angeles Times (MCT) LOS ANGELES — Sifting through observations from more than 100,000 distant stars, astronomers say they have discovered the first definitive Earth-sized planet that orbits in a habitable zone where water could exist in liquid form — a necessary condition for life as we know it.

Science Friday Scientists don’t know whether the planet has water or a protective atmosphere. They don’t even know its mass. But they said the landmark discovery gives astronomers great hope that a bumper crop of Earth-like planets is waiting to be found much closer to home, including around temperamental stars that until recently were considered inhospitable to life. “This is really a tip-ofthe-iceberg discovery,” said Jason Rowe, an astronomer at the SETI Institute in Mountain View, Calif., who spent a year analyzing data gathered by NASA’s Kepler space telescope and was part of a team that described the planet in the April 18 edition of the journal Science. After finding the planet known as Kepler-186f, “we can infer that other ones are likely to exist.” Locating them, he said, will be “the job of future missions.” It’s not quite an “Earth twin” — its parent star is a red dwarf, smaller and dimmer than the sun — but it’s clearly a close cousin, said study leader Elisa Quintana, a planetary scientist at NASA Ames Research Center at Moffett Field in California. Finding it fulfills a major goal of the $600 million Kepler mission, which was rejected four times before it launched in 2009. Scientists who were not involved in the new study lauded the find. “This is an historic discovery,” said University of California, Berkeley, astronomer Geoffrey Marcy. “This is the best case for a habitable planet yet found. The results are absolutely rock solid.”
