NASA says new heavy-lift rocket debut not likely until 2018

CAPE CANAVERAL Fla. (Reuters) - NASAs new heavy-lift rocket, designed to fly astronauts to the moon, asteroids and eventually Mars, likely will not have its debut test flight until November 2018, nearly a year later than previous estimates, agency officials said on Wednesday. NASA is 70 percent confident of making a November 2018 launch date, given the technical, financial and management hurdles the Space Launch System faces on the road to development, NASA associate administrators Robert Lightfoot and Bill Gerstenmaier told reporters on a conference call #facebook #Politics #Japan #France #Arabic #Russia #United Kingdom #Latin America #opinion

Libya warns United Nations of possible slide into civil war

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - Libya warned the U.N. Security Council on Wednesday that the chaotic North African state could descend into full-scale civil war if heavily armed warring factions are not disarmed. The 15-nation council met to discuss Libya days after its parliament, which was replaced in an election in June, reconvened and chose an Islamist-backed deputy as the new prime minister. #Politics #India #Business #Japan #Brazil #France #Arabic #Middle East #United Kingdom

Gaza truce holding but Israel's Netanyahu under fire at home

GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - An open-ended ceasefire in the Gaza war held on Wednesday as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu faced strong criticism in Israel over a costly conflict with Palestinian militants in which no clear victor has emerged. On the streets of the battered, Hamas-run Palestinian enclave, people headed to shops and banks, trying to resume the normal pace of life after seven weeks of fighting. Thousands of others, who had fled the battles and sheltered with relatives or in schools, returned home, where some found only rubble. #facebook #United States #India #Japan #Technology #France #Arabic #Israel #opinion
