The open-air concert event, Tachevah: A Palm Springs Block Party, takes place April 17, 2013 at 5 p.m. and stars indie band, Passion Pit. With the Coachella Valley Music and Art Festival in full swing, more than 7,500 people are expected to attend the block party that will feature two beer gardens and 10 vendor booths. The Black Weirdo Tour began in Austin, Texas where the group performed for the city"s annual, South By South West festival wristbands. Next on the list was a trip to California where the duo performed two shows. Now they"re here in Toronto for a 3 day performance set. Besides becoming golf"s largest amateur golf tournament, the Golf.Com World Amateur Handicap Championship is one of the world"s greatest annual reunions. Golfers from every U.S. state and two dozen countries gather every year during the last week in August to not only compete in a professional tour-event wristbands, but also to renew friendships from years past, and make new ones for years to come. E: There"s been some debate regarding what genre SWR belongs in-people have dubbed it anything from post-punk to rock to dance music. How would you describe it? AB sport wristbands We had written three or four songs and we decided let"s not repeat ourselves. Let"s stop if it starts sounding like anything we"ve done. On the fourth song, there"s a line [talks about the canyon/fire] -that"s a San Fernando Valley reference; that"s where we"re from. There"s really no bands coming out of the Valley, so this was kind of like our love letter to the Valley. I think the record feels like where we"re from. It reflects who we are as musicians, not looking back, but looking forward.

China is on track to launch its first Mars probe around 2020, and plans call for retrieving soil and rock samples from the red planet before 2030, said Zhang Rongqiao, the mission"s chief designer.

China aims to become the first country to conduct an orbital and surface exploration of Mars in a single mission, he said on Wednesday at an international forum on lunar and deep space exploration in Beijing.

The Chinese Mars probe consists of three parts: orbiter, lander and rover. It will carry 13 scientific instruments - seven in the orbiter and six in the rover, he said.

The orbiter will collect data on Mars" atmosphere, electromagnetic field, temperatures, surface landscape and other key scientific indicators, he said.

The rover, weighing around 200 kilograms, will focus on collecting surface data, as well as testing other equipment to pave the way for future sample retrieval missions between 2025 and 2030.

Overall, China"s first Mars mission "is going smoothly and all according to plan", he added.

Russia, India, the US and the European Space Agency have probes orbiting Mars, but only the US has successfully landed a rover and carried out surface missions. Around 2020, NASA, the ESA and the United Arab Emirates will also launch Mars probes.

Before 2020, China will launch an unmanned landing mission to the moon named Chang"e 4, as well as a moon sample retrieval mission named Chang"e 5. In the following years, China will explore asteroids and smaller bodies to understand the solar system"s origin and formation, and search for information on possible extraterrestrial life.

China also plans to launch probes to Jupiter in 2036 and Uranus in 2046, Zhang said. However, these planets are so far away from the sun that light is too weak to power solar-powered probes. Chemical propulsion systems face long-term storage issues and an even harsher environment in space, he added.

"Since Mars is close to Earth and shares relatively similar characteristics, it has become the priority target in deep space exploration," Zhang said. "Not only might Mars serve for future robotic or human settlement, studying its evolution can help us answer some of the key questions in cosmology that can have a profound impact on our life."

One example is that NASA has confirmed that liquid water existed on Mars, "so is Mars the past or the future of Earth? Studying how Mars became a mostly barren, arid planet can help with our own environmental protection effort on Earth," Zhang said.
