Don't panic! NASA to create giant blue, green, and red artificial clouds visible from New York to North Carolina tomorrow morning

Stunning clouds of blue, green, and red will light up the skies from New York to North Carolina in the early hours of Saturday morning as NASA tests a new deployment system on a sounding rocket. The test, which has been rescheduled three times to ensure optimal weather conditions, will see ten soda-can-sized canisters release cloud-forming vapour roughly 100 miles above the surface just before 5 a.m. (EDT).

The artificial clouds will glow with brilliant colour as the vapour interacts with elements in the atmosphere, allowing scientists to track the movement of particles.

According to NASA, the Terrier-Improved Malemute sounding rocket will launch from the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia between 4:26 and 4:41 a.m. EDT. The clouds, also called vapour tracers, will be released at 96 to 124 miles above the surface, and pose no risks to people down below, the space agency says. As barium, strontium, and cupric-oxide interacts with the atmosphere, the vapour creates clouds of blue-green and red.

‘The canisters will deploy between 4 and 5.5 minutes after launch blue-green and red vapour forming artificial clouds,’ according to NASA. ‘These clouds or vapour tracers allow scientist on the ground to visually track particle motions in space.  ‘The development of the multi-canister or ampule ejection system will allow scientists to gather information over a much larger area than previously allowed when deploying the vapour just from the main payload.’

The launch was originally set for May 31, but weather conditions caused the space agency to push this window to the next day, as clear skies are necessary. But, on June 1, upper level winds exceeded the launch limit, causing NASA to push the test back again.

WHAT ARE VAPOUR TRACERS? 

Vapour tracers are artificial clouds that allow scientists to track the movement of particles through space.

They will be deployed from canisters, each roughly the size of a soda can, at 96 to 124 miles above the surface.

As barium, strontium, and cupric-oxide interacts with the atmosphere, the vapour creates clouds of blue-green and red.

But, this will pose no risks to people down below, the space agency says.

According to NASA, the Terrier-Improved Malemute sounding rocket (pictured) will launch from the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia between 4:26 and 4:41 a.m. EDT

This morning, however, the researchers found skies were cloudy at both of the ground camera stations. While clear skies are not required at both sites in order to go through with the launch, they are preferred. So, the test was once again rescheduled, this time for Saturday June 3, with a 4:26-4:41 a.m. launch window.The mission will last roughly 8 minutes in all, with the payload landing in the Atlantic Ocean about 90 miles off Wallops Island.

NASA will be livestreaming the launch on the Wallops Ustream site.

At least 37 killed in Manila casino horror as they survive robber's gun rampage but die of smoke inhalation when he sets himself on fire

At least 37 people have been killed after a 'white, English-speaking' masked gunman attacked a casino in Manila, stole £1.7million ($2.3million) worth of betting chips and set fire to tables before he 'burned himself to death'. It is understood many of the victims were women who suffocated due to smoke inhalation as crowds battled to get to the exits.

Witnesses said the gunman, who had an assault rifle, entered the Resorts World Manila casino in Pasay City, Philippines, shortly after midnight before opening fire on betting terminals and televisions. It sparked mass panic and the man was then seen pouring fuel over tables and setting them ablaze while gamblers were fleeing for their lives.   Explosions were also heard coming from the tourist hotspot and bloodied victims were seen being stretchered out of the building. 

A Resorts World Manila official said the dead, who all died from smoke inhalation, included 13 employees and 22 guests.  Philippine police said they're looking to speak to a person of interest in connection to the attack.  Before the gunmen had been killed and police had confirmed any motive, the Islamic State group claimed responsibility and US President Donald Trump also branded it a 'terrorist attack'. It was later revealed that the incident was likely a robbery gone wrong.

The official said the person likely suffered a heart attack but an autopsy would be carried out to determine the cause of death. Three South Koreans suffered minor injuries from smoke inhalation or during the evacuation, the official said. US President Donald Trump Thursday expressed sadness and sympathy for victims of what he labelled a 'terrorist attack' at a casino in the Philippines capital Manila.

'We're closely monitoring the situation,' Trump said in response to the gunfire attack, which was quickly claimed by the Islamic State group. 'But it is really very sad as to what is going on throughout the world with terror. Our thoughts and our prayers are with all of those affected.' 

National police chief Ronald Dela Rosa said a 'foreign looking, Caucasian gunman' had stormed the second floor of one of the complex's four hotels and fired an automatic rifle at TV monitors, before setting gaming tables alight. He stuffed a backpack with casino chips before he fled but was found dead in an adjacent hotel early Friday of an apparent suicide.

If you get this Whatsapp message, delete it immediately: Scam tricks users into paying for the service

Whatsapp users should be on the lookout for a new scam which tries to charge them for using the instant messenger. Fake text messages have been sent out in recent weeks warning recipients that their subscription has run out. The message also contains instructions to receive a lifetime subscription for a small fee and are being used by criminals to trick people into providing their payment details.

Fake text messages (pictured) have been sent out in recent weeks warning recipients that their Whatsapp subscription has run out

 

This particular form of the scam first emerged last month, but reports have been on the increase. The message reads 'Your subscription has expired. To Verify your account and purchase a lifetime subscription for just 0.99 GBP simply tap on this link'. Whatsapp did charge 99p after the first year of use when it first launched back in 2010, but this was scrapped.

People who have received the message should delete it immediately. If you have clicked on the link it contains, you should also run antivirus software to ensure your device has not been infected with malware.     It is unclear exactly how many users have been targeted or how criminals obtained the phone numbers. But concerned Whatsapp users have taken to Twitter to warn others about the scam. 

Kieran Stevenson‏ said: 'I've just had a text from "Whatsapp" saying my subscription has expired and I need to click a link to renew it. Scam, right?' Kate Davies added: 'Anyone else received a text from #WhatsApp saying you're subscription has expired ..but you can buy life long for £1 ?

A number of users contacted the firm directly, including Lyn Homer‏ who said: '@WhatsApp I've just had a text message saying that I have to pay 99p for WhatsApp lifetime subscription.. Is this right?'    With more than 1 billion monthly users, WhatsApp provides a precious service to people all over the world, keeping them in touch with friends and family.

And this is not the first time hoax messages have circulated recently suggesting the free messaging app will soon start charging. In January, chain messages were sent round suggesting both Whatsapp and Facebook Messenger were about to introduce a fee. On this occasion, the hoax messages did not seem to have any criminal intent.

Saudi Arabia to behead 23-year-old deaf, blind man who took part in a protest

Disabled Munir Adam, 23, was arrested in the wake of political demonstrations in the Shia dominated east of the Kingdom in 2012 and now faces the death penalty

Saudi Arabia is to behead a deaf and visually impaired man to death for taking part in a protest, it has emerged. Disabled Munir Adam, 23, was arrested in the wake of political demonstrations in the Shia dominated east of the Kingdom in 2012.  A court in Saudi Arabia has upheld his death sentence and Adam has just one appeal left before the King signs an execution warrant.

It comes as campaigners complained that US President Donald Trump failed to raise human rights abuses on his recent visit to the Kingdom.  According to the human rights group Reprieve, Adam had medical records proving his disability. He already suffered from impaired sight and hearing, following an accident as a young child.  Adam was arrested for violent acts at a protest and accused of 'sending texts', according to Reprieve. But activists claims a 'forced statement' was used as the sole piece of evidence against him in a secretive trial at the Specialised Criminal Court.  

Campaigners have complained that US President Donald Trump failed to raise human rights abuses on his recent visit to the Kingdom

Reprieve said it had urged Trump to use his visit this month to raise the cases of protesters who face the death penalty.  But director Maya Foa claimed that by failing to raise the human rights issue, the Trump administration had effectively 'emboldened' the Kingdom to continue its clampdown on demonstrators.

Foa added: 'The Trump Administration must now urgently stand up for American values – they must call for the release of Munir, and all others who face execution for simply exercising freedom of expression.'

How one Kuwaiti girl fell into the Daesh trap

 How one Kuwaiti girl fell into the Daesh trap 

Girl who travelled to Egypt was rescued after Daesh attempt to extract ransom money from her father thwarted

Kuwait City: She was like any other normal Kuwaiti teenager, enjoying a peaceful life and dedicating her time to her high school studies.

Until she met Fatima.

“I was a Grade 11 student in a Gulf country in 2012 and 2013 when I met Fatima, a Sudanese girl. “We became very close friends and shared a lot of things. Then, Fatima started telling me that she was closely following media details about Al Qaida and eventually gave me a memory card with pictures, poems, videos about Daesh. Fatima kept giving me more memory cards and my interest in the group steadily increased.”
Fatima warned her “best friend” to be very secretive about her new support for Daesh.

“People do not easily accept their ideology and the world needs some time to be convinced about it,” she said.

“As I was about to graduate and leave the Gulf country, Fatima showed me how to use social media, especially Twitter and Facebook, to communicate. When I went back to Kuwait, I added accounts recommended by Fatima to my social media platforms. They were related to the Daesh group. I used the moniker of Huda and I used my accounts to republish news and information from the Daesh accounts,” she said.

“And then, I met online one of the Daesh leaders who called himself Abu Muslim. We communicated in private so that only he and I could see what was being sent or received. He told me that his real name was Ali. He regularly sent me fatwas about the significance of Daesh and I leaned towards what he was saying.”

As Ali realised that she has grown dependent on him, he moved to the next stage.

“He persuaded me that I should leave Kuwait and embark on a terrorist mission. He asked me to go to Syria. When I acquiesced, he asked me to buy a ticket to Turkey where designated people will look after me and take me into Syri.a I bought the ticket in 2015, and on departure day, I sneaked out of house at dawn without informing my parents. However, at Kuwait airport, I was told that I could not travel because my passport would expire in less than one month.”
When I informed Ali about the failure of the plan, he became very upset.

“However, he quickly resumed correspondence and kept feeding me with the names of more accounts and of a radio station dedicated to Daesh news. He asked me to liaise with a woman called Rania, nicknamed Umm Zaid, on Telegram Messenger. I did contact her, informing her that Ali gave me her contact. She added my name to an account that had only women believing in Daesh ideology and started sending me fatwas and religious texts. I felt elated being among this group of women who shared the Daesh ideology. I felt transported myself to the days of early Islam.”

Some of the group members were already in Syria and Iraq, engaged in terror activities.

“There were also others, like me, who were waiting for their turn to join the battle. The women were in various countries, but as far as I know, I was the only one in Kuwait.”
Ali, her mentor, was still in touch with her.

“One day, Ali contacted me and asked me to book a ticket to Turkey from where I will be taken to Syria. However, this time, I told him that I did not have enough money to purchase the ticket. He asked me to send him a copy of my passport so that he could buy the ticket. After some time, I received the ticket. He told me that he had taken care of all the arrangements, from my reception in Turkey until I reach the designated place in Syria. Everything was fine and I was excited.”
Two hours before leaving her home, she received a message from Ali.

“He told me to freeze everything and not to go to the airport. He told me that the security situation in Istanbul was tense following an attack carried out by armed men on the airport. He said that I would be easily discovered. I followed the instructions and stayed home. We communicated for some time, and then, I did not hear anything from him. I later learnt from the websites that he was killed on August 2, 2016.”
She kept monitoring the sites dedicated to the terror group.
“I came across the account of Abu Abdullah who fully supported the group ideology and posted their news. We communicated regularly through messages on Facebook. One day, he asked me to travel and see him in Egypt where I will be engaged in a terrorist operation in Sinai. I agreed and on February 7, I headed to Cairo. I was received by several leaders of the group. However, I was arrested by the Egyptian security forces on April 11. I was questioned for days and on April 26, I was taken to a plane and handed over to Kuwaiti security people. In Kuwait, I was taken to a security building before I was referred to a court.”

During her trial, she told the judges about her life as a potential terrorist.

“I supported the ideology of the group and I was able to reach Egypt after I twice failed to go to Syria to join them. However, today I regret what I did because I have discovered they were wrong.”

Why did you regret your moves?
------------------------------------------
“When I went to Egypt and had my first physical contacts with Daesh leaders, I saw that they were not committed to religion. In one instance, one of them contacted my father and warned him that he would kill me if he did not pay a ransom of 5,000 Kuwaiti dinars. My father ended up transferring the money to a bank account in Egypt. Abu Abdullah was arrested when he went to the bank to withdraw the money. In his confessions, he told the police about me and they arrested me. After all the images I conjured up in my mind about Islamic groups, I was shocked to see how different they were in reality, so I bitterly regretted entering in contact with them. I anticipated being actively involved in helping terrorists in smuggling weapons or preparing someone to commit a suicide attack in the service of the ideology. I personally was not ready to blow myself up. But I discovered that the situation was totally different from what I had anticipated. As for the operation plans, I think they did not go through because of the lack of funds and because Abu Abdullah was arrested.”
