Out-Of-Control Chinese Space Station Expected To Re-Enter Atmosphere Within Months

07 August 2017 23:53:04 WN.com - Asia News

A Chinese space station that is reportedly out of the control in orbit will return to Earth in less than a year, with a small possibility debris will make it to the ground, IFL Science reports. Called Tiangong-1, it was launched into orbit in 2011, welcoming one unmanned spacecraft and two crews. As Space.com reports, however, it “ceased functioning” on March 16, 2016, and is now doomed to re-enter the atmosphere. Throughout its life China performed periodic boosts, like that done on the International Space Station (ISS), to maintain its orbit. Since they lost control, its orbit has slowly degraded due to atmospheric drag by about 160 meters (525 feet) every day. This has seen it drop from...

Indian Mill Girl Sprints to New Life as Policewoman

07 August 2017 23:53:04 WN.com - Asia News

Before the break of dawn, Muthulakshmi Mariappan slips out of her home and starts running. In the stillness of the morning, she gasps for breath but eggs herself on to run faster, take longer strides and ignore the thorns piercing her bare feet. For the 20-year-old spinning mill worker, running fast is a prerequisite to becoming a policewoman - and becoming a policewoman would be her dream come true. The job would let her break free from a cycle of low-paid drudgery at her spinning mill in Rajapalayam, in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu, and give her new-found stature and the chance to escape a traditional female destiny. "Clearing the exams and being accepted for police academy...

07 August 2017 23:48:09 WN.com - World News

Author: Reuters, AP Mon, 2017-08-07 14:05 ID: 1502125080520286500 LONDON: The British government has denied it had agreed the amount of its EU exit bill.

The EU has floated a figure of €60 billion, while Britain has not indicated how much it would be prepared to pay. The Sunday Telegraph reported that...

ANALYSIS-Specter of coup, surge in violence haunt Venezuela

07 August 2017 23:48:09 WN.com - World News

Venezuela appears to be sliding toward a more volatile stage of unrest after anti-government forces looted weapons during a weekend raid on a military base and frustration over what some see as an ineffectual opposition leadership boils over. Last week's installation of an all-powerful new legislative body run by leftist President Nicolas Maduro's Socialist Party loyalists, despite massive protests and a global outcry, has left many Venezuelans feeling there are no more democratic options to oppose the government. That sentiment may have helped trigger Sunday's raid on a military base near the city of Valencia by soldiers and armed civilians, in which the government said two people were...
