NASA Nears Choice on Private Space Taxis for Astronauts

NASA Nears Choice on Private Space Taxis for Astronauts The world could know by the end of the week which private spaceship is going to fly NASA astronauts to and from the International Space Station. The space agency is about to give out its Commercial Crew Transportation Capability contract, or CCtCap, the last in a series of awards and agreements NASA began putting in place in 2010 to encourage the development of private space taxis for American astronauts. While one winner is widely expected, it's possible that NASA will tap multiple companies, agency officials said. "NASA has not specified a set number of awards under CCtCap," NASA officials wrote in a blog post last week.

Bruised euro holds ground ahead of inflation test

A pedestrian is reflected in an electronic board showing the various stock prices outside a brokerage in Tokyo By Marc Jones LONDON (Reuters) - The euro clung to modest gains and a rally in Europe's share and bond markets cooled on Thursday as investors put bets on possible fresh ECB stimulus next week on hold ahead of German inflation data. Escalating tensions in Ukraine kept riskier assets under pressure, with the top share index in Germany -- whose corporate sector has strong trade ties with Russia -- extending initial losses on reports Russian troops had crossed the border to fight alongside separatists. The recently-battered euro inched off a one-year low versus the dollar to $1.3204 as bond markets steadied with yields in most key parts of the euro zone pinned near record lows. "If the German CPI (inflation figures) underline strengthening deflation, it will fuel caution towards the euro zone... and add selling pressure on the euro," said Junichi Ishikawa, a market strategist at IG Securities." European stocks took their lead from a quiet Asia as the main markets in London, Frankfurt and Paris opened 0.2, 0.4 and 0.2 percent lower after three days of gains.


Telecom rivals battle for Vivendi's Brazil broadband unit

Telecom Italia tower in Rome By Leila Abboud and Lisa Jucca PARIS/MILAN (Reuters) - The battle over Brazil's telecoms market intensified on Thursday as European competitors Telecom Italia and Telefonica made rival offers for Vivendi's Brazilian broadband business GVT. Vivendi, which will examine the bids at a Thursday board meeting, must now choose whether to exit its last remaining telecom business after selling off its French and Moroccan mobile operations to focus more on media. French tycoon Vincent Bollore, who is Vivendi's chairman and largest shareholder, has led the talks with Telefonica and Telecom Italia in recent weeks and his view will weigh heavily in the outcome. Spain's Telefonica said it had raised a previous 6.7 billion euro bid for GVT to 7.45 billion euros ($9.84 billion), increasing the cash component of the initial offer made at the start of August.

The company logo is displayed at the Samsung news conference at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas BEIJING/SEOUL (Reuters) - A China-based supplier for Samsung Electronics Co Ltd and Lenovo Group Ltd said on Thursday it had never hired child laborers, denying allegations by a U.S.-based activist group.

The watchdog said it had shared the evidence with Samsung last week and that Samsung demanded the supplier pay some students' wages.

Quakes Keep Shaking Iceland's Bardarbunga Volcano

Quakes Keep Shaking Iceland's Bardarbunga Volcano Earthquakes are still rocking Iceland as lava pushes through a long underground fissure near the ice-covered Bardarbunga volcano. By 6:42 p.m. local time (2:42 p.m. EDT) today (Aug. 27), the Icelandic Meteorological Office (IMO) had detected about 1,300 tremors in the region, most of the them originating from the subsurface channel being carved out by magma, or molten rock. Late in the day, the discovery of a long depression above the southeast edge of Bardarbunga's caldera sparked new speculation about an eruption. As much as 10.5 billion gallons of water (40 million liters) could have melted and gone missing under the ice, the University of Iceland said.


NASA says new heavy-lift rocket debut not likely until 2018

NASA’s Space Launch System 70-metric-ton configuration is seen launching to space in this undated artist's rendering By Irene Klotz CAPE CANAVERAL Fla. (Reuters) - NASA’s new heavy-lift rocket, designed to fly astronauts to the moon, asteroids and eventually Mars, likely will not have its debut test flight until November 2018, nearly a year later than previous estimates, agency officials said on Wednesday. NASA is 70 percent confident of making a November 2018 launch date, given the technical, financial and management hurdles the Space Launch System faces on the road to development, NASA associate administrators Robert Lightfoot and Bill Gerstenmaier told reporters on a conference call. NASA estimates it could spend almost $12 billion developing the first of three variations of the rocket and associated ground systems through the debut flight, and potentially billions more to build and fly heavier-lift next-generation boosters, a July 2014 General Accountability Office report on the program said. While the rocket might be ready for a test flight in December 2017, as previously planned, the new assessment showed the odds of that were “significantly less” than the 70 percent confidence level NASA requires of new programs, Gerstenmaier said.


Scientists find mild cases of MERS among patients' families

Handout transmission electron micrograph shows the Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) coronavirus By Julie Steenhuysen CHICAGO (Reuters) - Fewer than half of Saudi Arabian patients in a study passed the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome virus to household members, and many of those who developed secondary infections contracted mild cases of MERS, global researchers reported on Wednesday. The study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, confirmed observations that the virus can cause mild disease, but overall transmission rates are low. "If less than half of infected patients transmit the virus to contacts, such as in this study, we can be pretty sure that this virus will not be able to start an epidemic in humans," co-author Christian Drosten of the Institute of Virology at the University of Bonn Medical Center said in an email. MERS, thought to originate in camels, causes coughing, fever and pneumonia, and kills about a third of its victims.

Over any given period there's a 50-50 chance the poison vial will open, and a person who opens the box after a given time and looks at the cat will then observe that it is either dead or alive.

Unusual Fish that 'Walks' Holds Clues to Animal Evolution

These first four-limbed animals, the so-called stem tetrapods, ultimately gave rise to amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals, including the largest animals to ever live on the planet. When fish started moving onto land, "the fossil record suggests there was a great deal of diversity among fish, and thus a lot of competition between the fish," said lead study author Emily Standen, an evolutionary and comparative biomechanist at the University of Ottawa in Canada. But just how ancient fish made this shift to terrestrial life still remains largely a mystery.

Tricking memory in lab animals stokes hope for PTSD

By Sharon Begley NEW YORK (Reuters) - The frailty of remembrance might have an upside: When a memory is recalled, two research teams reported on Wednesday, it can be erased or rewired so that a painful recollection is physically linked in the brain to joy and a once-happy memory to pain. "Recalling a memory is not like playing a tape recorder," said Susumu Tonegawa of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who led one of the studies. The mice had been engineered so specific brain neurons could be activated with light, a technique called optogenetics.

Power of the Sun: Elusive Solar Neutrinos Detected, a Cosmic First

Power of the Sun: Elusive Solar Neutrinos Detected, a Cosmic First Tiny particles forged in the heart of the sun have been detected for the first time, offering scientists a glimpse into the nuclear fusion core of our closest star. The subatomic particles, called neutrinos, are hallmarks of the dominant fusion process insidethe sun. The new findings "allow us to look at the majority of the fusion reactions in the sun's core in real time, as they happen, minus an eight-minute delay for travel to Earth," Andrea Pocar, of the University of Massachusetts and part of the Borexino team, told Space.com by email.  "The measurement allows us to strongly confirm the model of the sun, and to take a 'neutrino photograph'."
