Exclusive: Spain's Repsol suspends swap deal for Venezuelan oil under U.S. pressure

Wed, 04/17/2019 - 13:46

HOUSTON/MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Spain's Repsol has suspended its swaps of refined products for crude with Venezuela's state-run oil company PDVSA, people familiar with the matter said, as U.S. officials weigh penalties for foreign firms doing business with Venezuela. The Spanish oil company has been swapping fuel and waiving payments due from a joint venture with PDVSA in exchange for crude, even as the United States rolled out new sanctions aimed at ousting Venezuela's socialist President Nicolas Maduro.

Beresheet bummer: Investigation of Israeli lunar lander’s crash points to human factor

Wed, 04/17/2019 - 12:38

A manually entered command apparently set off a chain reaction of events that led to last week's crash of an Israeli-built lunar lander during its attempt to touch down on the moon, the mission's managers said today. Preliminary results of an investigation into the crash indicate that the manual command was entered into the spacecraft's computer, which caused the main engine to switch off and stay off during the Beresheet lander's descent. That led to the failure of the nearly $100 million lunar mission, which took its name from the Hebrew words for "In the Beginning." The privately funded SpaceIL… Read More

Elusive molecule, first in Universe, detected in space

Wed, 04/17/2019 - 11:53

In the beginning, more than 13 billion years ago, the Universe was an undifferentiated soup of three simple, single-atom elements. "It was the beginning of chemistry," said David Neufeld, a professor at John Hopkins University and co-author of a study published Wednesday detailing how -- after a multi-decade search -- scientists finally detected the elusive molecule in space. "The formation of HeH+ was the first step on a path of increasing complexity in the Universe," as momentous a shift as the one from single-cell to multicellular life on Earth, he told AFP.

NASA sets up more ‘Near Year in Space’ stays, including a record-setter for women

Wed, 04/17/2019 - 11:32

Just days after the publication of scientific results from NASA’s first “Year in Space” mission, the space agency says two more extended stays on the International Space Station are in the works. One of the missions will set a world record for the longest spaceflight by a woman, and it’s already in progress. NASA astronaut Christina Koch, who went into orbit in March, is having her tour of duty extended to 328 days.
