"At Seattle Center tonight the storm played WNBA hoops against the Dallas Wings. Sports with Swartz at 10 and 40 after the hour Northwest News Radio. Another rocket entered space from NASA a facility in Virginia and will conduct research before returning to Earth's surface. Rebecca Hughes with more. Three, two, one. A Northrop Grumman Antares rocket blasted off from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility Tuesday night. The rocket carried a Cygnus spacecraft with a payload of supplies for the International Space Station. Along with scientific investigations the mission will examine fire protection aboard spacecraft and the density of Earth's uppermost atmosphere. I'm Rebecca Hughes. You ever made a really big mistake at work, you know, like cutting off communication with a deep space probe? Thank goodness me neither. But that did happen to some folks at NASA. A happy resolution may be coming. Here's ABC's Brad Milkey. For almost half a century the Voyager 2 probe has been sailing through space. It went past Mars then Jupiter and Saturn finally out of the solar system. At this point it's more than 12 billion miles from Earth and it's still rightfully beaming back information we've never gotten from anywhere else. Well a weeks couple ago flight engineers accidentally sent a command to Voyager 2 to tilt its antenna 50 away degrees from Earth. Doesn't sound like much but that tiny shift was enough to render its coms useless. It's beaming information but to no one and mission control can no longer send it any commands. But a glimmer of hope NASA has this thing called the Deep Space Network satellite dishes around the world that constantly scan the sky for radio signals. Well yesterday they picked up the faintest of pulses from Voyager 2. It's called a heartbeat signal not enough to be useful. It's not facing the Earth squarely enough for that but it at least lets us know the craft is still functioning. But will we ever get in touch with Voyager 2 again? Thank goodness they thought of this before and every few months Voyager systems do an automatic reset to make sure its instruments are still facing Earth. The next reset occurs automatically in October meaning those engineers with the butterfingers will have to sit in silence a little bit longer.

"Give some love up to minnesota. Lynx real quick lakesha clarendon got signed with minnesota and as soon as that happened they have not lost a game. When when the clarendon was signed to minnesota everybody you know was a lot of reactions. Oh you there in all star level player and they've done a phenomenal job ever. Since arriving in minnesota claritin has been plus eighteen plus Where are we Plus eighteen plus eleven and then Dead even that's where they've been in the minnesota lynx games that they've played in and minnesota was sliding and win. Clarendon showed up all of a sudden. There's just an impact that they have on the floor. That's different compared to so many other other players out there that that when clarens out there there's just this things seemed to be flowing better for four minnesota when they're on the floor and i think that's that's been a huge huge element to what the success that we've seen out of minnesota and minnesota just figured it out you know they had one close game against atlanta but. Yeah they're wins. They beat the connecticut sun as their first win of the season. They beat the connecticut sun. And then they got back to back wins against atlanta. And they're up currently as we're recording this. They're up on or excuse me no. They're they're down four but they're playing the mystics mystics. Pretty close and they've got a couple teams ahead of them. They've got the sparks winnable game chicago. Winnable game dallas dallas atlanta like their next one two three four five games After the mystics tonight are very winnable games before they start playing teams like Las vegas and phoenix if they go ahead and win. Let's say four of the next five. I really like where minister where minnesota could be you know if they're sitting at seven and five. They're they're going to be up in the upper echelon of the and i think that that's the reality of where will likely see minnesota here soon. So yeah i'm feeling a little bit like we jumped the gun putting up in putting them in the top three or four in our preseason predictions. But i don't think the beginning of the season was their truth. No the they were missing what we always not only did. They not have signed Clear they were missing collier for a large out of that too. Yeah a perennial fringe. Mvp candidate and one of the best defensive players in the league so that makes a difference it also we said this at the top of the show i think ten to twelve games is enough of a sample size to start drawing conclusions for a team. They they in the mystics have played the fewest games so far. It's why they're playing right now. his combination. It's a four point game around halftime as as of this recording. But they they've only played seven games. And they lost the first four to close to phoenix. And then the hot start new york liberty and in seattle seattle so tough early seasons leading because it was a tough schedule and they didn't have one of their most important players and suddenly against connecticut. Overtime win atlanta close win in the net. Lanta twenty point below canal close when against the mystic. So they've got some teams coming up. That i absolutely think are beatable. You've got the sparks in chicago after this and then a doubleheader at dallas dallas c'mon has been really pesky this year But you expect the youth of dallas to to not always perform leading the clutch. We're going to talk about the dallas wings in a minute actually have a lot of good things to say about dallas But that's you know. I think they're turning things around at exactly the right time like if if chicago is a sinking ship. I think i think minnesota voided Avoided the worst of the storm and is kind of Writing things in time to have a really good shot at a decent playoff berth. By the end of the year they also end their year with a game against the sparks to against the mystics. Three against the fever Teams that i think by. Then we'll expect them to beat so they could be one of those candidates for going five hundred most of the year and then finishing really strong. So i i like them a lot I'm glad that that came out in. She called that team out And there there aren't a lot of coaches in the league. That are willing to publicly do that. I'm sure in the locker room. It happens more than we think But if you if you remember the quote it was something like that. That's one of the worst defensive performances in my tenure as a coach and she her as a coach is a decade and the next game. they beat The like the five in connecticut sun handed their. I lost so she knows how to she goes out to coach. Kyle that's the that's the big takeaway from here We only have a few minutes left to this episode. We wanted to give you the basic overview of who hot and. He's not right now in the in the league. I don't like that phrase it that way. But that's essentially what this is but we left a little bit of time for the biggest surprises and all all launch off this discussion. By saying that. I think the dallas wings three and five record while not glowing is actually like pretty decent. All things considered especially since two of those five losses or overtime to the reigning champs.

'I Played A Season Of The WNBA Secretly Pregnant'
"So Alexis tell us about Schuyler digging Smith the player Skyward Digging. Smith is phenomenal biggest. She has obviously the ability to score in score. Well but she is a great facilitator a true floor. General did first of all so not only can she make shots for herself and score really well on her own but she also is very good at finding her teammates and making sure they have opportunities and what she like as a person. I tried a lot of different sports. Basketball was the one that kind of stuck with me. Something does drove me and continue to drive me. I wanted to be the best very vocal. Very passionate very young. I guess and fresh you can see that through her through endorsements and her the workout kind and one two and three and four contracts relief contract threatening. That's right this is ridiculous Schuyler Digging Smith but not as ridiculous as an outdated sports drink and then on social media just her vocalness she was very vocal about. Wnba athletes getting equal pay. Don't act like you don't see the discrepancy. You know adult. Don't make me feel like I'm crazy. This is not new as far as not getting paid and she actually sat out last season after giving birth to her son and while she was out she was pretty vocal about her unhappiness with how her team the Dallas Wings handled her becoming a new mom. Can you walk us through that drama? So during the two thousand nineteen season that Skyler was sitting out. After having a baby she took to twitter and expressed how she was unhappy with the organization and didn't feel. They supported her through her pregnancy. She wrote people. Call me a quitter. Said I gave up on my team. Not Knowing took two full months away from everything because the postpartum depression with limited sources to help me be successful mentally and physically but just wait though keep that same energy continue. I've played the entire season pregnant last year. All Star in the league top three to five in MPG. Didn't tell a soul. Wow it was very eye opening for all of us and really the catalyst who okay. She is going to step away from this organization eventually right so that lack of support leads her to request a trade from the wings. Yes where she was going to go was obviously a mystery and with that she got interest from multiple teams the Phoenix Mercury. Being one of them. And when did we first start to hear that the mercury were serious about Landing Skyler Diggins? The mercury are a pretty good at keeping things. You Know Fairly Hush Hush I think rumors were swirling that it could be a potential landing spot but really it didn't start until WNBA free agency opened up on February tenth. Lots of signings lots of trades. Lots of deals happen the very first day but then on the second day the Phoenix Mercury sent one of their all-stars to WanNa Bonner to the Connecticut Sun in exchange for two top ten twenty twenty draft picks and a twenty twenty one first round draft pick and that kind of sets the rumors ablaze of. What are they going to do with that? Who are they going to get? And that's when Schuyler is name really started popping up in association with the Mercury the Dewana trade happened on the eleventh and twenty four hours after It was announced that Skyler would come to Phoenix. And tell us about this mercury team that Skyler diggins joining you have arguably the best player in the world in Diana Teresi Rossi barrels luxury back in front or Ossius. Twenty-five she's fiery on and off the court. She's opinionated. She will tell it like it is when she has the ball in her hands. She is controlling every aspect of the game and making sure that the ball gets where it needs to be a Rossi fodder for the Finnish dish from Diana Toronto and the chemistry that you see her build with her teammates in practice and in Games when she is playing is second to none and Brittany griner at center One of the most dominant athletes on the court favorite thing is blocking Williams workings rider system. She holds the WNBA record in blocks in a single game and single season so definitely a lot of all stars around Schuyler. The mercury are clearly already stacked but despite that they've had a couple of really disappointing years last season. Diana GERACI was injured and the team lost during the first round of the playoffs. Chicago sky around two decisive victory over Phoenix seventy six. The final teams will often start thinking about a rebuild after underperforming like this or when injuries catch up with marquee players was that ever a thought in Phoenix. Not a rebuild but a kind of re strategize a focus on getting healthy a focus on Dan atrocity getting back one hundred percent. Britney griner toward the end of the season was dealing with injuries. I think a big thing for the mercury knowing that Diana Tracy is thirty seven years old and likely at the tail end of her career that it was important to make one big last tidal run. But I think part of getting all those draft picks for Dewana and setting the stage for this blockbuster trade was really to put the team in a great position to contend for a title with Dan Atrocity. And what's what's Phoenix hoping to get out of Schuyler now that she's on the team. I talked with head coach. Sandy Brunello after the Schuyler deal was done and she said that there was going to be a focus on being a lot more physical more playmaking ability and that is something that skyler definitely brings to the table. We're not very Closest Diane Army to will to win passion for the game. But she's white fire Panel the bone she create obviously is a real tough defender with Schuyler. Here are some of the decision. Making some of the ball handling will also fall into Schuyler slap and knowing that Schuyler signed a multi year deal and that Diana is looking toward the end of her career. I think it would ultimately be a good transition to start building the team out instead of the team solely focusing on one star player. And why does this trade makes sense from Schuyler perspective? I think it places Schuyler. In a great position to play alongside A player like dance Rossi to play alongside Brittany griner but also with the team culture. The mercury have kind of the best family planning and Family Facility is in the league. I think they're building a new practice facility state of the art but they also have a quote unquote family room. They have a lot of MOMS on the team. The coaches have kids and it really is a family atmosphere so I think looking at what? Schuyler went through it made sense for her to land with the mercury knowing. There's these all-stars knowing they prioritize family knowing that she won't have to hopefully worry about some of the things she dealt with in
WNBA Playoffs: Players to watch
"The WNBA playoffs have kicked off y'all, and this was a truly a historic season for women's basketball. I mean, I certainly believed the postseason will be no less exciting as we've seen in the first round of games. So guys, let's just skip to the finish line and tell me t- who you got winning at all and why? Yeah, I think that this is probably the toughest WNBA postseason that we've seen in a minute because every case, every team that's in it actually has a case for why they could win it. I've been on the sparks his bandwagon for a while because my city no longer has a team. The Detroit shock is no longer a team. So I've just been jumping back and forth. I know right, like and I was cool when they went to salsa as the Tulsa shock, because at least they kept the. Name, even though they were in a different city, but now they're the Dallas wings and I just don't feel comfortable sharing for another city like Dallas doing anything. So I just keep jumping around. Yeah, that was definitely a shy just. So I just keep jumping around and I've been on a sparks. His bandwagon for the last couple of years is I really just felt like they have been a complete team. They did win it, but now I'm really hoping to see a Connecticut Seattle. I just think that it would be the alternate number one, the autumn ease versus whether she can't get more easily. Connecticut can't get more west Seattle. So there's that then for me, there's the Yukon factor to see brianna Stewart and then super to see how that dynamic is. People here love their Connecticut sun, but they also love their Yukon huskies. So now you're actually giving the fans a little bit of a side to choose between the two. And then lastly, because our grow today, obviously she plays for the sun and she'd been missing for like family. So my dude, if you don't be missing for like fabulous rail, bring a championship. This. Nobody got time for that. I was telling someone other day that you're correct me if I'm wrong. But like this particular w NBA season just feels different than ones like years past like the regular season has been so incredibly height. It's being in a lot, a lot of well-deserved publicity. And you know now we're now we're now wanna w NBA playoffs which of course, for the past couple of years in been lit from start to finish and like in the NBA. Like what like we see in in sports just across spectrums. Like your postseason is where your, where your superstars become like
