Air refuelling is the hidden force enabler allowing those countries with this ability to project their airpower around the world. Far from just the process of refuelling aircraft, it has changed the way we have fought wars in the last 70 years with many of the most well-known conflicts being dominated by airpower, which in turn is supported by air refuelling. This is an insight in this unseen side of the military.

At ULA we are passionate and committed to returning astronauts to space from U.S. soil. We are proud to be entrusted with such an important mission. We are excited to support Boeing and NASA, focused on the safety of our astronauts, and honored to inspire generations of rocket scientists and space enthusiasts. ULA is Go for Launch!
SpaceX is targeting Sunday, January 19 for an in-flight test of Crew Dragon’s launch escape capabilities from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. This test, which does not have NASA astronauts onboard the spacecraft, is intended to demonstrate Crew Dragon’s ability to reliably carry crew to safety in the unlikely event of an emergency on ascent.
The six-hour test window opens at 8:00 a.m. EST, or 13:00 UTC. A backup opportunity with the same six-hour launch window opening at 8:00 a.m. EST, or 13:00 UTC, is available on Monday, January 20.
Current weather data suggests our best opportunity for the launch escape test will be towards the end of the four-hour window, but we will continue to provide updates as new data becomes available.

The Moon is gateway to space, and in the future it might serve as an industrial and mining complex fueling vast production of spaceships, rocket fuel, satellites, space stations, and colonial habitats.

Fire is often considered the foundation of human technology, but there may be many worlds on which it would not be likely to practical, such an ocean planets, and on which intelligent life like Dolphins might emerge. Could such worlds host technological civilizations anyway? Or would they be forever stuck at little to no technology?
The answer to this question may depend on whether Stephen Hawking was right in his theory that describes how black holes shed mass and eventually decay. Time is flying by on this busy, crowded planet as life changes and evolves from second to second. At the same time, the arc of the human lifespan is getting longer: 67 years is the global average, up from just 20 years in the Stone Age.
Modern science provides a humbling perspective. Our lives, indeed even that of the human species, are just a blip compared to the Earth, at 4.5 billion years and counting, and the universe, at 13.7 billion years.
It now appears the entire cosmos is living on borrowed time. It may be a blip within a much grander sweep of time. When, we now ask, will time end?
Our lives are governed by cycles of waking and sleeping, the seasons, birth and death. Understanding time in cyclical terms connects us to the natural world, but it does not answer the questions of science.
