Prototype space station module begins inflating on NASA's second try | Reuters

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. Astronauts aboard the International Space Station on Saturday slowly inflated an experimental fabric module that may provide a less expensive and safer option for housing crews during long stays in space, a NASA TV broadcast showed. An initial attempt to unfurl the module on Thursday failed, most likely because of friction within the module's layers of fabric, foam and reinforced outer covering, NASA said. #Economy #Business #Middle East #markets #Innovation #United Kingdom #Entertainment

Iraqi Sunni politicians reject visit by Iran's Soleimani to Falluja | Reuters

BAGHDAD Sunni politicians in Iraq condemned on Saturday a visit by Iranian General Qassem Soleimani to Shi'ite paramilitary forces fighting alongside the Iraqi army to drive Islamic State militants out of the Sunni city of Falluja. Three lawmakers from the province of Anbar told Reuters the visit by Iran's al-Quds brigade commander could fuel sectarian tension and cast doubt on Baghdad's assertions that the offensive is an Iraqi-led effort to defeat Islamic State, and not to settle scores with the Sunnis. Falluja, which lies about 50 kilometers (32 miles) west of Baghdad, is a bastion of the insurgency that fought the U.S #India #Business #Islam #Europe #Iran #Iraq #crisis

Global airport trade group opposes new checkpoints after attacks | Reuters

MONTREAL The United Nation's aviation agency should avoid creating new checkpoints outside airport terminals as it draws up proposed global guidelines to improve security in the wake of recent attacks on travellers, the head of Airports Council International said on Friday. Angela Gittens, director general of the global airport trade group, said she did not want external checkpoints, which are being debated as a way to deter attacks on airports, to become part of a proposed global security standard for public areas because the additional lineup could create a new target. The U.N.'s International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) last week discussed creating a new standard that could push countries to come up with security rules for public sections of airports #India #Business #Africa #United Kingdom #article

No new signal from EgyptAir jet since day of crash, search intensifies | Reuters

CAIRO/PARIS No new radio signal has been received from an EgyptAir jet since the day it crashed in the Mediterranean last week, sources close to the investigation said on Friday. Media reports on Thursday suggested that a new signal had allowed officials to further home in on where the black box recorders might be located. But the sources told Reuters that nothing new had been detected since a radio signal picked up on the day of the crash from the plane's emergency locator transmitter (ELT) that allowed officials to determine a broadly defined search zone of 5 km (3 miles) in radius #United States #India #Business #France #Europe #Argentina #Copyright
