BRINK OF WAR: China strengthens border with North Korea amid imminent USA attack fears

Beijing is concerned a war between North Korea and America will put towns and villages near the northern border at risk.  Chinese officials also fear an influx of millions of North Korean refugees crossing into China if all-out war breaks out.  Beijing has increased military patrols along the border with North Korea, locals in Chinese villages have reported.  Radiation monitors have also been introduced to vulnerable towns to enable an early response to contamination in the event of a US nuclear strike on the hermit state. And citizens, already discouraged…

Here’s the controversial key to NASA’s bold plan for Mars

Get the Mach newsletter. SUBSCRIBE Begun in 1998 and completed in 2011, the International Space Station is celebrated as a remarkable feat of engineering as well as a far-flung home away from home for the astronauts who have lived and worked aboard the orbiting outpost. But with the ISS slated for retirement in 2028, NASA is now making bold plans for the next phase of human spaceflight. The plans call for astronauts to return to the moon and then venture deeper into space. As President Trump said in December, these…

NASA discover network of Moon TUNNELS for new base that could hide water

The US space agency has found a top candidate for a settlement with the lava tubes that burrow down into the moon and date back to its volcanic past. Lead researcher Dr Pascal Lee said: “We are looking at good candidates considering simultaneously their size, shape, lighting conditions and geologic setting.” The entrances in the Moon’s surface may lead to subterranean water the new images reveal. It is believed the tubes are part of an underground network and could give lunar explorers access into the Moon’s interior. The tunnels could…

What Should You Do in Case of Nuclear Attack? ‘Don’t Run. Get Inside’

The threats seem to come almost daily now out of North Korea — ballistic missile firings, preparations to test a nuclear bomb and routine bravado. State-owned media in the rogue nation last week vowed a “super mighty preemptive strike,” one that will reduce the U.S. to “ashes.” On Saturday, residents in Hawaii were sent into a panic when they received alerts on their mobile phones and televisions warning that a ballistic missile was on its way. The warning, which claimed “this is not a drill,” quickly prompted officials to say…

Hidden exoplanets could be revealed by echoing light

A shadow may not be the only way to spot alien worldsNASA, ESA, L. Calçada By Shannon Hall Echoes can reveal the unseen. Similar to how a killer whale can “see” through pitch-black water by bouncing high-frequency sound waves off objects, we could use light to discover exoplanets. Whenever a star emits a bright flare of radiation, some of its light may reach Earth where astronomers will measure a burst of brightness – but the display isn’t over. Because the light emanates in all directions, it will also head towards…

America’s Most Powerful Nuclear Weapon Almost Killed The People Who Helped Build It

WarIsBoring Security, An atomic disaster like no other.  America’s Most Powerful Nuclear Weapon Almost Killed The People Who Helped Build It Sixty-one years ago on an island in the South Pacific, scientists and military officers, fishermen and Marshall Islands natives observed first-hand what Armageddon would be like. And it almost killed them all. The Atomic Energy Commission code-named the nuclear test Castle Bravo. The March 1, 1954 experiment was the first thermonuclear explosion based on practical technology that would lead to a deliverable H-bomb for the Air Force’s Strategic Air…
