The Indian Navy has joined an exclusive maritime club after completing sea trials on the first of two 3rd Generation Submarine Rescue Systems being delivered by British-based JFD. During the trials, the Deep Sea Search and Rescue vessel (DSRV) successfully mated with a submarine on the sea bottom at a depth of 300 ft (91 m) and an angle of 45 degrees before taking aboard “survivors.”
Lockheed Martin has taken the wraps off its vision for a future manned lunar lander at International Astronautical Congress (IAC) in Bremen, Germany. The concept spacecraft is designed to show how a reusable lander, in conjunction with NASA’s planned lunar Gateway deep-space orbital outpost, can support an indefinite human presence on the Moon as well as providing valuable experience for the first manned missions to Mars.
It’s been almost half a century since the last astronauts set foot on the Moon and with new US plans committing NASA to a program of sustained human exploration and exploitation of deep space, returning to the lunar surface will involve much more than simply taking up where Apollo left off. Not only has technology advanced considerably since the 1960s, but making more than temporary and sporadic visits to the Moon and beyond requires a whole new approach to space exploration.

Yesterday, I received a rather lengthy rebuttal to my World Net Daily Article entitled:
“Religion Drives the Desire to Destroy Kavanaugh.”
It was comprehensive and quite revealing of the thinking of the left. So much so, that I thought I would post it, anonymously, as well as my responses to several of the commenter’s (talking) points.
Unfortunately, as it is so long, I must break it up into at least two, maybe more parts.
My responses are indented.
The commenter writes: “Sir: No one has set out to “destroy” Brett Kavanaugh. However, the accusations against him seem quite creditable. Only he knows whether he actually attempted to assault Dr. Ford sexually over 30 years ago. And Dr. Ford, unless her memory has been faulty.”
On this, we will have to agree to disagree. From everything I’ve heard, seen, and read, all there are are baseless accusations and convenient “memory” lapses from every accuser. Not a single person has come forth regarding any of them to corroborate the women’s stories. That is rather far-fetched, even with so much time past. And with a lack of any evidence or corroboration, any reasonable person must default to a presumption of innocence – in court or in life.
Allie Stuckey for Prager University asks why the big push to make men more like women. We want force the masculinity out of men. Like masculinity is a bad thing.
But in today’s snowflake society, there is more thing as just being a manly man. Now being manly is considered “toxic” masculinity.

Polish Lawmaker Speaks Out After Cathy Newman’s Latest Car Crash Interview on Illegal Migration
Polish lawmaker Dominik Tarczyński has stuck to his guns following a frank interview on the migrant crisis with Cathy Newman, insisting his government will not take a single illegal migrant because that is what his party promised before the elections.
The Channel 4 presenter, who became infamous online following her viral interview with Canadian scholar Jordan Peterson, had demanded to know how many “refugees” Poland had taken, to which the Law and Justice Party (PiS) politician replied: “Zero.”
If you feel like you’ve had some drawn-out breakups, they probably have nothing on the supercontinent of Pangaea, which took tens of millions of years to split up. But now, a unique fossil skull might readjust the timeline, with a strange creature turning up on a different continent to its previously-discovered relatives.
A robotic hand that can translate words into sign language gestures for deaf people has been created by scientists.
Named Project Aslan, the 3D-printed hand costs as little as £400 ($560) to make and interprets both written text and spoken words.
The device communicates through ‘fingerspelling’, a type of sign language where words are spelled out letter-by-letter through separate gestures on a single hand.
The robot, which will be ready in five years, could one day be carried around in a rucksack, scientists say.
NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover has spotted a set of mysterious ‘stick-like figures’ on the red planet.
In a photo shared to the rover’s Twitter account this week, NASA revealed a look at the unusual formations recently discovered on the face of a Martian rock.
