Market forces alone are already phasing out coal and propelling the growth of wind and solar power, anyhow. … [Read more...] about Trump Reportedly Leaning Toward Exiting Paris Climate Deal
It does, however, have much to lose — including America’s credibility as a world leader and an upholder of its international commitments.

Based out of Los Angeles, Relativity Space is an ambitious rocket startup aimed at creating the first fully 3D-printed rocket. The company, started by engineers from SpaceX and Blue Origin, is currently developing its first rocket called the Terran 1.

Space Adventures says that “accepted and secured candidates will be required to complete specialized training and additional simulations” to prepare. … [Read more...] about Roscosmos says it will send two tourists to the space station in 2023 — and one of them will spacewalk
