BREAKING: NASA confirms water on the Moon’s surface

Published

on

12 p.m. ET Oct. 26, 2020: NASA announced Monday that water has been confirmed to be present on some sunlight surfaces of the moon, according to two studies published Monday in the journal Nature Astronomy.

It had been believed that water on the moon only existed in the shadowed portion of the lunar surface.

According to Paul Hertz, astrophysics division director at NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C., the water is believed to be distributed across the lunar surface and is only a small amount.

The discovery is a boost for the agency’s Artemis program, which aims to land the first woman and the next man at the moon’s south pole in the year 2024. If the water can be used, it would mean, among other things, that astronauts would not have to transport as much water with them for missions to the moon.

The discovery was made from observation of the moon’s surface via a telescope on SOFIA, a modified Boeing 747 airplane that flies high in Earth’s atmosphere.

Original story:

NASA on Monday will announce an “exciting new discovery about the moon” in a teleconference aboard an airplane fitted with a powerful telescope.

The space agency has not hinted at what the announcement may be, only stating that “this new discovery contributes to NASA’s efforts to learn about the moon in support of deep space exploration.”

The announcement will be made at noon EDT from the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy, or SOFIA, for short. SOFIA is equipped with a nearly 9-foot telescope.

Audio of the teleconference will stream live on the agency’s website.

According to NASA, the briefing participants are:

  • Paul Hertz, astrophysics division director at NASA Headquarters, Washington.
  • Jacob Bleacher, chief exploration scientist for the Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters.
  • Casey Honniball, postdoctoral fellow at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland.
  • Naseem Rangwala, project scientist for the SOFIA mission, NASA’s Ames Research Center, Silicon Valley, California.

Facebook has been caught using voter-suppression tools to ban Republican accounts

Published

on

Facebook Inc. has been caught using voter-suppression tools and techniques to remove pages and profiles of those who support the Republican and Conservative candidates.

In a controlled test environment, two accounts we’re created by the Pennsylvania Breaking News website. Each website added 10 “friends”, in addition to using a profile picture border to support respective candidates.

5 political posts were made on each account, along with 10 shares from the respective candidates (Donald Trump for the Republican account and Joe Biden for the Democratic account). On the eve of the election, the Republican account was seized and disabled by Facebook Account Security. The Democratic account remains active.

Facebook could not comment on account security related questions but numerous reports have surfaced that their algorithm has been attacking Republican-based accounts.

If Trump wins again, he can have a third term…

Published

on

In a shocking turn of events, it has been said that Donald Trump is eligible for a third term if he is re-elected come November 3rd. Many democratic voters rule this theory out based upon the 22nd amendment, but are they right?

Today, the Lincoln Project, who is a major anti-Trump advisor, has aired a new ad confirming they are wrong. Donald Trump is eligible for a third term due to the failed impeachment process that occurred in early 2020.

Last month, Forbes had reported that Trump was stating he would “negotiate” a third term because “he’s entitled to it”. Come 2024, he will be on the ballot if he chooses to be.

Not only did the failed impeachment entitle the president to run yet again, but, the Clinton campaign was caught spying on the GOP’s campaign materials. Spying on another campaign is illegal.

Franklin D. Roosevelt actually served a third term and won a fourth, but he has died just a few months after the inauguration. FDR led the country out of the Great Depression and through World War II, much like President Trump had led the country through the coronavirus pandemic.

Will you be voting for Donald Trump on November 3rd? Comment below!
