Antares Rocket takes for ISS

A US rocket has been launched from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility on Virginia's Eastern Shore, carrying cargo with the space agency's re-supply mission for the International Space Station (ISS).

The Antares rocket built by Northrop Grumman lifted off on 17 April carrying the Cygnus cargo spacecraft to the ISS.

It carried about 7,600 pounds (3,450 kg) of supplies and scientific experiments to the station. Some instruments it transports will examine astronauts' health in microgravity. It is also carrying 40 intrepid mice.

First female astronaut candidate of USA Jerrie Cobb dies

NASA's first female astronaut candidate, pilot Jerrie Cobb, has died at the age of 88.

In 1961, Cobb became the first woman to pass astronaut testing. Altogether, 13 women passed the arduous physical testing and became known as the Mercury 13.

But NASA already had its Mercury 7 astronauts, all test pilots and men. None of the Mercury 13 ever reached space.

Cobb served for decades as a humanitarian aid pilot in the Amazon jungle.

GK of the day: Libya Crisis

Sometimes a controlled chaos is much better option than altogether freedom. This is an another tragic story of a long-time dictator controlled country set free to idolize itself on the style of Western democracy.

Recently, oil rich African country Libya was again on the turmoil as local militia are fighting in control of the country’s capital Tripoli.

The battle began when the Libyan National Army (LNA), a force in control of most of Eastern Libya, launched a surprise offensive on Tripoli.

That attack threatens to reinvigorate the armed conflict in a country marred by instability since former dictator Muammar Qaddafi was deposed in 2011.
