SpaceX launches its 50th Falcon 9 rocket, carrying a 'bus-sized' Spanish communications satellite into orbit (and it weighs a record six tonnes!)
SpaceX carried out the 50th launch of its signature Falcon 9 rocket early today, a swift ascent to a milestone which many aerospace firms take far longer to attain.
It was carrying to orbit a Hispasat Spanish-language communications satellite 'almost the size of a city bus,' according to tweet from CEO Elon Musk.
The craft weighs six tonnes (6.6 tons), making it the largest geostationary satellite that the firm has taken into space. The launch of the Falcon 9 took place on schedule at 12:33 am EST (5.33 am GMT) from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.About 33 minutes into the flight, the satellite was deployed into geo-stationary orbit, SpaceX said in a live webcast.
Writing on Twitter, a spokesman for the firm said: 'Successful deployment of Hispasat 30W-6 to a geostationary transfer orbit confirmed.'
The satellite will expand television, broadband and telecommunications services in Europe and Northwest Africa. Source
Delta passengers confused as thick fog rolls through cabin for 30 minutes on Florida tarmac
Passengers on-board a Delta flight in Jacksonville were puzzled when the cabin suddenly became engulfed in thick fog.
Cell phone video captured the tense moments on-board the flight, bound from Jacksonville to New York City on August 11th. The smoke began filling the cabin as the plane sat on the tarmac, prior to takeoff. Crew members failed to notify anxious passengers of where the fog was coming from, which lasted for thirty minutes. One passenger stated that crew members even poked fun of the situation calling it a practice for their "Halloween Haunted House. Delta Airlines says that during humid conditions it's common for fog to fill the cabin due to condensation.
Despite the event, the flight made it safely to its destination to New York's John F. Kennedy airport Source
Flights at an airport in Ireland have been temporarily suspended after a plane carrying US troops caught fire and had to be evacuated on the runway.
The brakes of the Boeing 763 overheated and burst into flames, forcing it to cancel its imminent departure from Shannon Airport in Ireland.
Smoke could be seen coming from the plane but all passengers were evacuated safely. The plane is believed to be an Omni Air operated flight, a US-based private airline that transports personnel for the US army.
Air traffic controllers noticed the fire and saw smoke coming from the plane's landing gear as it taxied along the runway.
The airport tweeted: 'We can confirm that an incident has occurred at Shannon Airport involving a Boeing 763 aircraft. Emergency services are in attendance. All passengers and crew have disembarked. Airport operations temporarily suspended.
'We are currently working to remove the aircraft from the scene of the incident so we can resume safe operat…
Read where Demons reside: Article 4. Whether our atmosphere is the demons' place of punishment? Objection 1. It would seem that this atmosphere is not the demons' place of punishment. For a demon is a spiritual nature. But a spiritual nature is not affected by place. Therefore there is no place of punishment for demons. Objection 2. Further, man's sin is not graver than the demons'. But man's place of punishment is hell. Much more, therefore, is it the demons' place of punishment; and consequently not the darksome atmosphere. Objection 3. Further, the demons are punished with the pain of fire. But there is no fire in the darksome atmosphere. Therefore the darksome atmosphere is not the place of punishment for the demons.
On the contrary, Augustine says (Gen. ad lit. iii, 10), that "the darksome atmosphere is as a prison to the demons until the judgment day." I answer that, The angels in their own nature stand midway between God and men. Now the order of D…
