The maiden flight of India’s Small Satellite Launch Vehicle (SSLV) ended in failure when the rocket failed to insert its payloads into the target orbit. India Space Research Organization (ISRO), the country’s space agency, confirmed on Twitter that the satellites “are no longer usable” after the rocket’s kick stage placed the satellites into an elliptical, rather than circular, orbit. The vehicle took off from Satish Dhawan Space Centre on Sunday.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) -Northrop Grumman is partnering with rocket startup Firefly Aerospace to build a new version of its workhorse Antares rocket without Russian-made engines that were cut off from the United States after the invasion of Ukraine, the company said on Monday. The new version of Antares, a rocket which NASA uses to ferry cargo to the International Space Station, will use seven Miranda engines under development by Firefly, Northrop said in a statement, adding that the two companies will later work on an entirely new launch vehicle. Northrop's partnership with Firefly comes months after Russia halted deliveries of Antares' original RD-181 engines in retaliation for sanctions the U.S. levied on Moscow over its Feb. 24 invasion of Ukraine.

Science tells us that if we don’t rapidly eliminate the use of fossil fuels it will be disastrous for future generations.
From Day of the Dead to Shaun of the Dead, the secret to killing zombies remains the same: remove the head or destroy the brain. By many accounts, zombies spread through disease transmission, and stopping the spread from one individual to the next can only be achieved through causing enough head trauma that the pathogen is stopped in its tracks. Neurocognitive diseases like Parkinson’s and dementia are far more monstrous, but new research indicates they might be stopped in a similar if less gory
Gene editing company CRISPR Therapeutics made a basing pattern in the January-July time frame and the indicators support the potential for further price gains. In this daily bar chart of CRSP, below, we can see that prices declined to a low in May but the base pattern looks like it has been evolving from February. The daily On-Balance-Volume (OBV) line bottomed in February and turned higher in March telling us of a shift from aggressive selling to aggressive buying.

The summer of the supermoon is about to put on its final performance, stealing the spotlight from what is typically one of the most-anticipated astronomical light shows of the year. Supermoon season kicked off in June, followed by an encore in July. The third and final of the series will rise on Thursday, Aug. 11, illuminating the sky all night long. While the difference is minuscule, a supermoon is slightly bigger and brighter than other full moons throughout the year. However, some stargazers
