Astronauts go spacewalking to give new hand to robot arm
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — Spacewalking astronauts gave a hand to the International Space Station's big robot arm Tuesday. As the federal government geared back up 250 miles below, NASA astronauts Mark Vande Hei and Scott Tingle floated outdoors to install the new mechanical gripper. Because of the lingering effects of the government shutdown, the spacewalk got started in the morning without live coverage on NASA TV. An on-air message simply stated: "We regret the inconvenience." Nearly an hour into the spacewalk, however, NASA TV came alive and began broadcasting the event with typical blow-by-blow commentary. Space station operations were largely unaffected by the three-day shutdown.
Gravitationswellen: Wichtiger Schritt für LISA-Mission
Ab den 2030er Jahren soll mithilfe eines weltraumbasierten Detektors nach niederfrequenten Gravitationswellen gesucht werden. Die Mission unter dem Namen LISA wird aus drei Satelliten bestehen, die in Formation fliegen. Die Technologien dafür wurden bereits erfolgreich getestet, jetzt bestand auch die Gesamtmission den Mission Definition Review. (23. Januar 2018)
UK regulator says Fox takeover of Sky not in public interest
LONDON (AP) — British regulators say 21st Century Fox's takeover of London-based broadcaster Sky is not in the public interest because it would give Rupert Murdoch and his family too much control over the country's news media. But it offered solutions that raised hopes that a deal would eventually be reached as the Murdochs press ahead with an even bigger deal — Disney's own bid to buy Fox. The preliminary finding on Tuesday by the Competition and Markets Authority is the latest hurdle for Fox's effort to buy the 61 percent of Sky PLC it doesn't already own for 11.7 billion pound ($16.3 billion). Its attempt six years ago was derailed by the phone-hacking scandal at Murdoch's British newspapers.
