Report reveals an undeclared North Korean missile base headquarters

"The Sino-ri missile operating base and the Nodong missiles deployed at this location fit into North Korea's presumed nuclear military strategy by providing an operational-level nuclear or conventional first strike capability," the report said. The discovery of an undeclared missile headquarters comes three days after U.S. President Donald Trump announced on Friday that he "looks forward" to another summit to discuss denuclearization with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in late February.

Stunning photos show the super blood moon in all its glory

In the wise words of Yello, "Oooh yeah. The moon is beautiful."  Western hemisphere skywatchers enjoyed front row seats to a stunning celestial treat Sunday night as the only total lunar eclipse of 2019 arrived in its full glory. An eclipse of similar caliber is not due again until 2022.  "Visible for its entirety in North and South America, this eclipse is being referred to by some as a super blood moon," explains Lyle Tavernier, educational technology specialist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. "'Super' because the moon will be closest to Earth in its orbit during the full moon ... and 'blood' because the total lunar eclipse will turn the Moon a reddish...

European Space Agency wants to start drilling on the Moon in an effort to find oxygen and water

The European Space Agency  (ESA) is hoping to start mining on the Moon by 2025. The ESA has signed a 12-month contract with the rocket maker ArianeGroup to study and prepare for the mission which aims to extract regolith, or Moon rock. Regolith covers the entire lunar surface to a depth of at least 12 feet, as it made up of a mix of clays, glass fragments, minerals and chemical compounds like iron oxide from which oxygen, water and fuel could be extracted. Many space agencies now believe space mining is crucial for the establishment of permanent lunar bases or colonies. Dr David Parker, Director, Human and Robotic Exploration at ESA, said: "The use of space resources could be a key to...

MIT Professor: Blockchain Can Allow for More Inclusive, Borderless Economy

Blockchain can allow for the creation of a borderless economy, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) professor Silvio Micali claimed in a interview on Bloomberg's Daybreak Asia, Jan. 21. Speaking on the show, Micali outlined three major properties of blockchain systems that must function simultaneously to enable a more inclusive and borderless economy - security, decentralization and scalability. According to MIT's Ford Professor of Engineering, until recently, only two of those three basic properties could have been achieved simultaneously at any time.

Photographers get super views of 'Super Blood Wolf Moon' eclipse - even in Seattle

January's usual weather conditions - with chilly temperatures for much of America and cloudy skies in the Pacific Northwest - aren't exactly ideal for tracking a total lunar eclipse, but Sunday night's "Super Blood Wolf Moon" actually lived up to the hype. Photographers across much of the country braved the cold to get some jaw-dropping snapshots and time-lapse views. Even in Seattle, where the weather forecast wasn't promising, the hours-long progression from supersized full moon to a ruddy darkness and back to lunar brightness unfolded in mostly clear skies.

Nigeria's ruling party accuses opposition of plotting pre-vote violence

The Feb. 16 vote in Africa's top oil producer pits Buhari, a military ruler in the 1980s who was voted into office in 2015, against main opposition candidate Atiku Abubakar, a businessman and former vice president. Reliable polls are hard to find in the nation of 190 million people, and analysts widely expect a tight race, partly because opposition stronghold states have seen a bigger increase in voter registration than ones where the ruling party is popular. "We have credible intelligence that armed bandits andBoko Haram insurgents have been mobilized to engage in massive attacks and other acts of violence in several states," Information Minister Lai Mohammed said, pointing the finger...

Former soldier sues MoD after contracting Q fever from animal bacteria in Afghanistan

A former soldier is suing the Ministry of Defence (MoD) after claiming he caught the debilitating infection Q fever while dodging Taliban bullets in Helmand province, in the first case of its kind. The former infantryman says he contracted the bacterial infection during a tour of duty in Afghanistan. Wayne Bass, 34, was medically discharged from the Army in June 2012 suffering Q fever and chronic fatigue symptoms. He says his life has been ruined by the Army's failure to provide antibiotics which would have protected him from the disease. In 2011 Mr Bass was serving as a private in 2nd Battalion The Mercian Regiment. His platoon was responsible for reconnaissance and protecting other...

Scientists warn of climate 'time bomb' for world's groundwater

Future generations face an environmental "time bomb" as the world's groundwater systems take decades to respond to the present day impact of climate change, scientists warned on Monday. Found underground in cracks in soil, sand and rock, groundwater is the largest useable source of freshwater on the planet and more than two billion people rely on it to drink or irrigate crops. Groundwater reserves are already under pressure as the global population explodes and crop production rises in lockstep.

Super Blood Wolf Moon of 2019 Thrills Skywatchers with Stunning (and Red) Lunar Sight

NEW YORK --This past evening, a show-stopping celestial event -- the only total lunar eclipse of 2019 -- crossed the sky and likely captivated millions of skywatchers across the Americas and beyond, from above the Rocky Mountains to down beyond the Andes Mountains. At 10:33 p.m. EST (03:33 UTC) a visible shadow began to creep across the moon's face. As many people across the U.S. East Coast braved the chilly weather brought on by Winter Storm Yoshi to view the moon pass through the darkest part of Earth's shadow, people took to social media to express elation, wonder and tearful joy. From the famed Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, California came video of a blood-red moon. Several...

FRANKFURT/LONDON/PARIS (Reuters) - Ever wanted to run your electric car for free? E.ON and EDF are already working with Nissan to develop services that allow power stored in electric vehicle batteries to be sold back to the grid - and now they're trying to persuade European carmakers to follow suit. With millions of electric cars expected on European roads over the next decade, utility firms see both an opportunity to sell drivers more electricity and a risk that surges in charging at peak times could destabilize stressed power grids.

An unusual set of celestial circumstances came together over Sunday night and the wee hours of Monday for sky watchers in Europe, Africa and the Americas, where the moon was fully obscured before lighting up again with a faint red glow. The eclipse lasted about three hours: during the first hour the full moon was gradually swallowed up by the shadow of the Earth, then an hour of total eclipse where it was not invisible but instead appeared tinted in hues of red, orange and pink, followed finally by its full reemergence, bright and shining. Other monikers include a "Wolf Moon," a traditional way of coining an eclipse in the month of January, and a "Blood Moon" because of its rusty, red...

Total lunar eclipse 2019: Super blood wolf moon appears over the UK

Skygazers in parts of the UK lucky enough to be under clear skies have been treated to the astronomical spectacle of a "super blood wolf moon". The rare phenomenon, caused in part by a lunar eclipse, makes the surface of the moon appear a reddish hue while seeming brighter and closer to earth than normal. Catching a glimpse of the curiously-titled event will be down to luck for those wrapping up and heading out early, as many parts of the country were covered by cloud on Monday morning. Met Office forecaster Mark Wilson said: "There's a lot cloud around, but there are some breaks to enjoy the lunar eclipse as well. "Across lots of central England and northern England...

Lunar eclipse 2019: How to view the super blood wolf moon in the UK

The Moon will turn red in the early hours of Monday morning as Britain experiences its last total lunar eclipse for 10 years. The Moon will start to darken at 2.35am with full eclipse beginning at 4.40am. It will be free of the Earth's shadow by 7.49am. It  is the last chance for UK observers to see a total lunar eclipse in its entirety until 2029. A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth passes exactly between the Sun and the Moon creating a shadow which stops solar rays reaching the lunar surface. Spectators can expect the Moon to begin to darken slowly before turning red as it becomes completely caught in Earth's shade. Sometimes the eclipsed Moon is a deep red colour, almost...

On Friday, at least 79 people died from a powerful explosion at a gasoline pipeline in central Mexico that had been punctured by fuel thieves. Relatives of some of the victims said fuel shortages stemming from the government's crackdown led people to risk their lives filling plastic containers from the leak. President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who took office in December, said the tragedy has not weakened his faith in the plan.

Britain's only satellite-launching rocket to go on display after 48 years in the desert

Britain's only rocket to successfully launch a satellite into orbit is to finally go on display 48 years after it crashed into the Australian desert. The Black Arrow was launched in 1971 from the Isle of Wight, delivering the Prospero satellite, but the programme was shut down soon after, with the money diverted to build Concorde. Now space technology firm Skyrora has brought the rocket home and is to display it in Penicuik, Midlothian where the company is based. The rocket casing came down in Southern Australia where it was damaged by weather and vandalism.  A plaque will also be placed where Black Arrow had lain. Rocket scientist Ray Wheeler with a scale model of the Black Arrow rocket...

Planet Nine may not exist, say scientists, after finding simpler explanation
Planet Nine may not exist, say scientists, after finding simpler explanation

When the mysterious 'Planet Nine' was first hypothesised in 2016 it was hailed as the solution to the strange orbits of far-flung icy objects and the unexplained tilt in the Solar System. The finding came 10 years after Pluto had been unceremoniously downgraded to 'asteroid number 134340' and led to hopes that our star system would soon be restored to nine worlds. Yet despite widespread searches by the most powerful telescopes, Planet Nine has never been spotted, and now astrophysicists have put forward a 'less dramatic' explanation. They think that the Kuiper Belt objects are being tugged by the combined gravitational force of a rotating ring of icy chunks orbiting the Sun beyond...

How to watch the Super Blood Wolf Moon lunar eclipse this weekend
How to watch the Super Blood Wolf Moon lunar eclipse this weekend

Sadly, the United States (and the rest of the continent) missed out on a lunar eclipse last summer, but we will get one more chance this weekend. On the evening of January 20th, the only total lunar eclipse of 2019 will light up the night sky across North and South America, as well as parts of Europe, Africa, and Asia. The eclipse is being referred to a variety of names, but the most ridiculous (and therefore best) has to be Super Blood Wolf Moon. "Super" refers to the fact that the Moon will be closest to the Earth in its orbit when the total eclipse takes place, "blood" is a reference to the reddish hue the Moon will take on during the eclipse, and "wolf"...

Climate plans could make Germany's 'no limits' Autobahns history

The days of unlimited speeding on Germany's famously fast Autobahns could be over if the government adopts a series of draft proposals on climate protection put forward by its committee on the future of transport. Charged with coming up with recommendations on reducing the environmental harm caused by transport, the committee also proposed fuel tax hikes and electric vehicle quotas to help Germany finally meet European Union emissions targets. The proposals, outlined in a draft paper seen by Reuters, could prove controversial in car-mad Germany, whose decades-old motorway network is famous for "no limits" sections where drivers can put even the fastest cars through their paces.

Bashir has blamed the unrest and accompanying violence on foreign "agents" and rebels from the western region of Darfur, claims he repeated on Sunday.

Earth
Earth's Tilt May Exacerbate a Melting Antarctic

As levels of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide rise and warm the globe, Antarctica's ice will become more vulnerable to cycles on an astronomical scale, particularly the tilt of our planet is as it spins around its axis. New research finds that over 30 million years of history, Antarctica's ice sheets responded most strongly to the angle of Earth's tilt on its axis when the ice extends into the oceans, interacting with currents that can bring warm water lapping at their margins and leading to increased melting. The effect of the tilt peaked when carbon dioxide levels were similar to what scientists predict for the next century, if humans don't get emissions under control. [Collapsing...
