Jilted by Trump, Xi and Kim Seek Upper Hand Before G-20 Summit

Jilted by Trump, Xi and Kim Seek Upper Hand Before G-20 Summit Both China’s Xi Jinping and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un have suffered from President Donald Trump’s penchant for walking away from talks. Now, he’ll have to worry about what they tell each other behind closed doors. Xi’s state visit to Pyongyang on Thursday -- the first such visit by a Chinese president in 14 years -- will showcase a renewed camaraderie between two neighbors that battled the U.S. together in the Korean War. The trip also sends Trump a pointed message about China’s broader influence ahead of potentially pivotal trade talks between American president and Xi on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Osaka, Japan.

Mountain of ice on asteroid ‘is like nothing humanity has ever seen before’

Mountain of ice on asteroid ‘is like nothing humanity has ever seen before’ Astronomers could hardly believe their eyes when they saw a 12,000ft mountain of ice rising from the surface of the dwarf planet Ceres in images sent back by NASA’s Dawn probe. The mountain ‘is like nothing that humanity has ever seen before’, NASA said this week. The mountain of ice (Ahuna Mons) is even, smooth, and steep-sided, and now scientists from the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) believe they know how it formed. Basically, the mountain is a huge mud volcano, made of hot mud which burst through the surface at a weak point covered in reflective salt - then froze in the bitter cold of space.

Only surviving original recording of man's first steps on the moon is set to fetch $2million - decades after NASA sold them off for $218 at a government surplus auction

Only surviving original recording of man's first steps on the moon is set to fetch $2million - decades after NASA sold them off for $218 at a government surplus auction In the years after the July 20, 1969 moon landing, NASA recorded over its tapes or sold them to cut costs and admitted in 2006 that all the original recordings were lost. Gary George, 65 from Las Vegas, was a college student when he bought 1,100 reels of NASA videotape in 1976, not realizing the moon landing tapes were among them.
