WASHINGTON — A critical test of the core stage of the Space Launch System is facing another delay, this time because of a combination of weather and technical issues that may push back the test to the end of the year.
NASA announced late Nov. 6 that it was delaying the final phases of the Green Run test of the SLS core stage, including a full-duration static-fire test of its four engines. That test had been scheduled for mid-November, a date confirmed by officials with NASA and Boeing, the SLS prime contractor, less than a month earlier.
One reason for this slip was Hurricane Zeta, which passed near the Stennis Space Center in Mississippi, where the Green Run tests are taking place, Oct. 28. While the hurricane did not damage the core stage or its test stand, it did cause damage elsewhere at the center and in the community. Some
SpaceX plans to launch the first operational flight of its Crew Dragon astronaut taxi to the International Space Station on Nov. 14, 2020. Called Crew-1, this will be the second Crew Dragon mission to carry astronauts, following the successful Crew Dragon Demo-2 test flight in 2019.
Riding on top of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, NASA astronauts Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover and Shannon Walker, along with Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) astronaut Soichi Noguchi, will lift off from the historic Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 7:49 p.m. EST (0049 GMT), if all goes according to plan.
The astronauts will spend about six months at the International Space Station as members of Expedition 64/65 before
Around a hundred thousand years ago, South Africa’s Cape south coast was a busy place. Giraffes, crocodiles, hatchling sea turtles, and large bird species populated the landscape. Early humans were there, too.
We know all of this because of fossil track sites that today dot the Cape south coast, which is about 400 kilometers east of Cape Town. These sites date to between 400,000 years and 35,000 years ago, to a geological epoch known as the Pleistocene. The tracks were made on dunes and beaches, which became cemented over time. These ancient surfaces, which often preserve the tracks in remarkable detail, are now amenable to our inspection and interpretation. Our research team has been documenting these track sites since 2007.
A substantial body of archaeological evidence has accumulated, indicating that ancient humans on this coastline adorned themselves with jewelry, developed sophisticated tool technology, created some of

Rebounding from a 7% drop in September, shares of Niu Technologies (NASDAQ:NIU) climbed 37%, according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence. In addition to the company’s reporting of third-quarter sales, investors were motivated to pick up shares of the Chinese electric-scooter manufacturer after Wall Street shared a favorable outlook on the stock.
While the impact of COVID-19 acutely affected Niu’s first-quarter scooter sales, the company recovered in the second quarter, reporting year-over-year growth in scooters sold of 81% in China, though international sales shrank 62%.
To the delight of shareholders, however, the company reported Q3 year-over-year scooter sales growth in both China and international markets, 70% and 6%, respectively. Although the company credited the rising sales in international markets to “demand recovery in July and August after the severe impact from COVID-19 in the second quarter,” management attributed growth in China
Through tonight: Shorter days are helping keep this heat from being even further above average. Temperatures fall quickly after sunset toward the mid-40s to the low 50s downtown and around the Chesapeake Bay. Patchy areas of dense fog may develop in the early morning, but skies are generally partly cloudy. Winds are light to calm.
Tomorrow (Monday): Still warm and a bit stagnant, as high pressure continues to sit over us. After any patches of fog, mist and low clouds burn off in the midmorning, we may again see some hazy sunshine. This could hold temperatures back a little, in the upper 60s to low 70s. The sunniest spots may again see some mid-70s.
Overall, it is bright, but there may still be some air pollution hanging around. Besides this downside, it remains a decent stretch of weather for outdoor activities. Light southerly breezes help mix and clear the atmosphere
