Tensions Rise In Sea Between Ukraine And Russia

  Tensions Rise In Sea Between Ukraine And Russia The Sea of Azov, which is technically shared by Ukraine and Russia under a 2003 agreement, has become a point of increased tension in recent months.“The security service said: ‘Watch closely, the Russians are preparing countermeasures. They are planning seizures and hijackings of Ukrainian ships,’” a Ukrainian shipowner told Radio Free Europe in a video published on Wednesday.

Their main job involves installing a pair of high-definition TV cameras. The cameras are meant to provide sharp views of commercial crew capsules coming in to dock. Until SpaceX and Boeing start flying astronauts, NASA must rely solely on Russian capsules for getting to and from the 250-mile-high outpost.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — Spacewalking astronauts set up TV cameras Thursday for new crew capsules set to arrive in coming months. The International Space Station’s commander, Drew Feustel, and Ricky Arnold completed the installation — their main job

The International Space Station's commander, Drew Feustel, and Ricky Arnold completed the installation — their main job — after struggling with a shield for protection against space debris.

As the work got underway, Feustel had trouble removing the protective panel, in order to disconnect an old cable and hook up a new one for the cameras. He used a small crowbar and noted if "I had more hands" the job would be easier.

Arnold floated over to help. Between the two of them, the astronauts managed to complete the initial cable work.

"Fantastic job," Mission Control radioed. But the astronauts soon encountered more snags, slowing them down. They finally got the two high-definition TV cameras installed on the end of 4 1/2-foot booms.

Jimmy Kimmel interviews Ryan Gosling in space for First Man

  Jimmy Kimmel interviews Ryan Gosling in space for First Man Jimmy Kimmel and Ryan Gosling talk in space The interview is centered around Gosling's newest film, 'First Man,' in which he plays Neil Armstrong This fall, Ryan Gosling will take on the role of a lifetime when he plays Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, in Damien Chazelle’s new film First Man. With the movie’s first trailer set to premiere Friday night, Jimmy Kimmel will have Gosling on the show to discuss — and they’ll be doing the interview in space, as seen in a new teaser clip, above. Sitting together in the tight confines of a spacecraft in their astronaut suits, Kimmel and Gosling share several laughs — especially once they spot a particularly funny callback to the 2013 film Gravity. More than a month before the First Man trailer premiered, Gosling and Chazelle previewed select footage at this year’s CinemaCon in Las Vegas. Chazelle relished the chance to tell the story of the first lunar astronauts on film for the first time, while Gosling homaged the bravery of Armstrong and his fellow astronauts as they prepared to go where no man had gone before. To see the full interview, tune in to the special “Game Night” edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live! at 8 p.m. ET following the night’s West Coast NBA Finals game.

Spacewalking astronauts have set up TV cameras for new crew capsules set to arrive in coming months.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. >> Spacewalking astronauts set up TV cameras today for new crew capsules set to arrive in coming months. The International Space Station’s commander, Drew Feustel, and Ricky Arnold completed the job after struggling with a balky shield for protection against space

The high-def cameras are meant to provide sharp views of commercial crew capsules coming in to dock.

Until SpaceX and Boeing start flying astronauts, NASA must rely solely on Russian capsules for getting to and from the 250-mile-high outpost. The Russians rides are costing NASA up to $82 million per person.

NASA hasn't launched astronauts into space from U.S. soil since the last shuttle flight in 2011. SpaceX and Boeing are aiming for test flights from Cape Canaveral, Florida, by year's end.

The tentative schedule shows flights without a crew by both companies in late summer followed by launches with astronauts by December. But those dates are considered optimistic.
