Farmers across the state begin their fall harvest

ROSE HILL, Iowa — It was a long hot summer in Mahaska County. The area was in a drought until late summer rains came. Now farmers in the area are starting to run corn. “This is our second day of harvesting corn, beans are not quite ready yet, but we’ve been struggling a little bit with the moisture we’re about 10 inches below moisture on the average for the year,” said Mark Jackson, who farms with his son Michael east of Oskaloosa. “Corn harvest right now is good I say a little bit above average.”

To the Moon by 2025?

As part of his visit to Central College last week, NASA Astronaut Raja Chari discussed the Artemis Project–a plan to land the first woman and next man on the Moon by 2025. Chari says the goal is getting the first humans back to the lunar surface since Apollo 17 in 1972, and is a collaboration of government space agencies and private spaceflight companies. Chari — whose wife Holly is a 1999 Central College graduate, was one of 18 astronauts chosen for the mission out of 18,000 applicants, and this past May, finished a six-month tour in the International Space Station. Hear more from Chari on the Let’s Talk Pella podcast.
