High winds delay launch of Pluto-bound NASA craft

first_imgCAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – Gusty winds on Tuesday forced NASA to postpone the launch of the New Horizons spacecraft, which was to begin its nearly decade-long journey to Pluto. The unmanned craft is now scheduled to lift off at Kennedy Space Center between 1:16 p.m. and 3:15 p.m. today. Winds reached 40 mph Tuesday afternoon, exceeding the 38-mph limit that officials had set for launch, said NASA spokesman Dwayne Brown. “Hopefully, Mother Nature will cooperate (today).” The weather is expected to worsen, however, with forecasts calling for strong winds and isolated thunderstorms. NASA officials estimated a 30 percent chance that today’s launch will be delayed by weather. The probability of a weather delay for Tuesday’s planned launch was estimated at 20 percent.

If it launches before Feb. 3, New Horizons would get a 9,000-mph speed boost from flying past Jupiter, reaching a top speed of 45,000 mph. That would cut the craft’s travel time by at least 3 years, allowing it to reach Pluto by July 2015. If the craft launches between Feb. 3 and Feb. 14, it would miss the gravity assist. The earliest it could reach Pluto would be 2019. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

GALLAGHER CANNOT MOVE OUTSIDE A FIVE MILE RADIUS OF LIFFORD

first_imgDouble-killer John Gallagher has been told he cannot go outside of a five mile radius of Lifford when he enters Donegal from Strabane.The condition is one of three main clauses set down by the review board of the Central Mental Hospital in Dublin.The board issued the clauses as part of a conditional discharge which saw Gallagher walk free from the hospital yesterday afternoon. Gallagher’s family along with the Gillespie family from Ballybofey were given just a couple of hours notice before Gallagher was granted his freedom.The families were told by Donegal Gardai that Gallagher would be released at 5pm.However Donegaldaily.com understands he was released just after 4pm.As part of the conditions Gallagher is allowed to visit his mother’s home at Post Office Lane in Lifford and also his late father’s grave. However he has been warned not to contact any of the relatives of his victims Anne and Annie Gillespie who he killed in the grounds of Sligo Hospital in 1988.Last night a spokesman for the Gallagher family said they believe a ”deal was done” before their brother handed himself into the Central Mental Hospital in May.“When he handed himself back into the Central Mental Hospital he knew he would be out in a short space of time.“He had it all worked out and he would never have gone in if he thought he was going to be locked up for a long time.“He never served a day for killing those two women – he had it cushy in hospital and now he is out. “Now it’s us who have to serve a life sentence looking over our shoulders wherever we go,” said the family spokesman.GALLAGHER CANNOT MOVE OUTSIDE A FIVE MILE RADIUS OF LIFFORD was last modified: June 30th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Central Mental HospitalJohn Gallagherreleaselast_img read more

ATSB: MH370 debris field claim unprofessional!

first_imgThe Australian air crash investigator has slammed a US deep sea search company as unprofessional after it criticized efforts to find MH370 based on a couple of photos.Seattle based Williamson and Associates, which helped find Air France Flt 447 in 2009, said that images released by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau early in October show a debris field that bears a striking resemblance to the AF447 field.In a research paper obtained by Reuters Williamson and Associates, which was an unsuccessful tenderer for the MH370 search, said it “believes the target (sonar image) bears the hallmarks of a classic high-impact debris trail similar to other wrecks it has located” and should be investigated further.However yesterday the ATSB defended its search partner Furgo saying that “based on analysis of all of the data, there are no indications that there is anything possessing the characteristics of an aircraft debris field.”“We consider it unprofessional to draw conclusions based on the limited information provided by the images in the search update report,” the ATSB said.“We know that this kind of public commentary is very distressing for the families of those on board the aircraft.”The ATSB said that “the images of the two sonar contacts included in the Operational Search Update released on 1 October were a very small sample of extensive data collected on several passes made at lower altitude, varying range scales and sonar frequencies with the deep tow system on board Fugro Discovery.”It added that “three separate additional passes were made over the contact.” The ATSB said that the data was assessed, holistically, by expert geophysicists and sonar data specialists on board the Furgo vessel and independently by its own sonar data quality assurance team. “Their assessment was made in the context of the adjacent geology and the broader geology found in the search area and it took account of the known characteristics of comparable aircraft debris fields.”The ATSB said that all the experts are satisfied that the structures are consistent with the surrounding geological formations.So far 70,000 sq km of the 120,00o sq km area of highest probability has been searched.Separately the apparent sighting of wreckage of MH370 on the remote island of Sugbay in the Tawi-Tawi chain of islands in the southern Philippines has turned up nothing.last_img read more
