NASA is showering Boeing with cash for delayed SLS rocket
Going to the Moon isn't cheap, no matter how far ahead you can plan for it. Going to the Moon on a dramatically-shortened timeline? Well, that can be even more expensive, and with NASA revealing that it’s close to striking a deal with manufacturer Boeing for up to 10 SLS rocket core stages for the Artemis mission program, it’s clear that the agency is feeling particularly generous.As Ars Technica reports, the contracts that are close to being inked between Boeing and NASA will likely offer special incentives and fees for the company despite the rocket’s already lengthy development.
No one can really explain these strange NASA discoveries ! It seems like every week NASA sends out a press release stating that another groundbreaking discovery has been made in this or that corner of the universe, or on this or that planet, or even in the extreme climates of our own planet.
The history of the world is full of surprising mysteries. None of us will live long enough to see them all solved. However, it’s always interesting to have
Sri Lanka have appointed former South Africa, Australia and Pakistan head coach Mickey Arthur on a two-year contract.
The 51-year-old South African replaces Rumesh Ratnayake, who became interim head coach in August.
He had stepped in for Chandika Hathurusingha, who fell out with the Sri Lanka cricket board following their exit from the World Cup at the group stages this summer.

Arthur arrives following three years with Pakistan, who he led to the 2017 Champions Trophy title as well as number one in the Test and T20 rankings.
Scientists crack open Moon sample sealed for 47 years
Half a century ago, NASA sent humans to the Moon for the first time in the history of mankind. In a new report, NASA reveals that some of the Apollo-ear lunar soil samples it recently approved to be unsealed have finally gotten a chance to breathe. The samples, numbered 73002 and 73001, are the first lunar material samples to be unsealed in over 40 years.
But NASA can ’ t seem to explain it. Maryse Godden, The Sun, staff writers. But cops and experts can ’ t seem to figure out what caused the mysterious noise. Some experts say causes could range from supersonic aircraft to meteors exploding in the atmosphere.

He left that role after they also failed to reach the World Cup semi-finals, but said after accepting the Sri Lanka job: "It had been three very good years with Pakistan and I needed a little bit of time away.
"The Sri Lankan job became available and I started discussions. I looked at the talent that's available and that's the key motivating factor - to help these young players fulfil their potential."
The secretary of Sri Lanka's cricket board Mohan Silva added: "We are very happy and pleased that we have been able to obtain the services of Mickey.
"He's a well-known personality who has been the head coach of a number of countries."

Nobody knows what’s creating oxygen on Mars
NASA's Curiosity rover returned some seriously surprising data to Earth earlier this year, with readings of elevated methane levels that were hard to explain. Subsequent tests attempted to pin down the cause of the higher-than-expected readings but scientists have yet to come up with a definitive answer. Now, as questions about methane continue to swirl, scientists studying the behavior of gasses on Mars have noticed that oxygen on the Red Planet also acts much differently than it does on Earth. The observations were made in the Gale Crater, which the rover has called home since it landed there back in 2012.
Scientists discovered thousands of objects in that area that are even bigger than Pluto. They also noticed a large gap in the Kuiper belt — some unknown planet as big as Earth pulled all the stones from the belt Although sound can ’ t travel through space , radio waves can. But where do they come from?
BIZARRE DISCOVERIES In The Jungle That Scientists Couldn' t Explain . All of this has combined to hand us a string of discoveries that seemingly leave more questions than answers. We’ll start things off with Mother Nature and a strange species of spider that builds even stranger decoys in its web.
Arthur will be assisted by Zimbabwean Grant Flower, who will be Sri Lanka's batting coach, as well as Australians David Saker and Shane McDermott, who will be bowling and fielding coaches respectively.
Arthur's first task will be leading Sri Lanka away to his former side Pakistan, with the two sides contesting the first match of a two-Test series from December 11.

Antarctic Experiment Reveals Strange 'Ghost' Particles That Physicists Can't Explain .
When physicists detected signals of high-energy neutrinos coming from a rather unlikely direction in the cosmos, they naturally went looking for a powerful source that might explain it. An intense examination of the most likely origins of these more reactive forms of 'ghost' particles has now come up empty-handed, opening the way for more exotic speculations over what might be behind the odd signals. Trawling through seven years of data from the neutrino-hunting IceCube experiment, a large team of researchers from around the globe are now forced to admit conventional explanations for the discovery are looking pretty weak.
