Countdown is on for tomorrow’s launch of Humans from Kennedy Space Center

first_imgBehnken and Hurley will spend anywhere from one to four months on board the orbiting laboratory, depending on how well their Crew Dragon spacecraft fares and on the status of another Crew Dragon spacecraft that launch the first operational Crew Dragon mission to the space station, called Crew-1. President Trump and Vice President Pence are expected to attend Wednesday’s launch at the Kennedy Space Center.Liftoff is set for 4:33 p.m. Eastern on Wednesday. There is a one minute launch window opportunity. SpaceX’s first crewed mission will be epic and historic. But, despite what you may have heard, it doesn’t mark the return of human spaceflight to American soil.The suborbital space tourism company Virgin Galactic notched that milestone on Dec. 13, 2018, during a rocket-powered test flight of its VSS Unity space plane.Pilots Mark Stucky and C.J. Sturckow took Unity to a maximum altitude of 51.40 miles (82.72 kilometers) on that mission. Weather permitting, SpaceX will launch two NASA astronauts to the International Space Station Wednesday afternoon from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.Right now there is a 60% chance the weather will cooperate and the launch will go off as planned.Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley will become the first astronauts to launch to orbit from American soil since the space shuttle was retired back in 2011. On launch day, the Falcon 9 rocket will send the two astronauts on a 19-hour orbital chase of the International Space Station, where they will join the three-person crew of Expedition 63 on Thursday (May 28). last_img read more

Indeed, No More of That

first_imgMr. Editor:The editorial of the Friday, January 24, 2014 edition of the Daily Observer captioned “The way forward for Liberian Raw Materials”  did not go unnoticed. A variety of interposing occurrences distracted my mind, and withdrew my attention from writing earlier. Anyway, it is “better late than never.”Undeniably, the concern expressed in this editorial that China Union is shipping out tons and tons of iron ore from the Bong Mines Mountain Range without establishing a manufacturing company to manufacture even a portion of the thousands of tons of iron ore, being extracted from Liberia, into zinc, steel rods or other finished products is also of paramount concern to many well-meaning Liberians,I am in full conformity with the assertion that “the time has come in this country for us to say NO MORE OF THAT”, but the reality is that Liberia will remain in this state of backwardness and degradation as long as Liberian negotiators bargaining contracts with foreign investors on behalf of the government and people of Liberia exhibit more interest in receiving their ‘brown envelops’ than in seeking the well-being of Liberia and the Liberian people.The editorial numerated three things that the Chinese have which Liberians lack: patriotism, hard work, and a sense of personal and national purpose. I would concord with the first and third, but not the second.I have stated repeatedly that Liberians are not lazy. Without doubt most of the employees working laboriously at public and private entities, including the ones managed by the Chinese and other foreign nationals, are Liberians.What can be asserted that is unquestionably true is that we, Liberians, have no love for our country and lack a sense of direction. It would be impossible to count the number of Liberians who are desirous of departing to the United States. Rather than put our house in order so as to enjoy “the bountiful blessings that the God of nature has bestowed upon us.” Liberians would prefer to reside in the U.S. or other foreign lands. Liberians are exceptional short-sighted; this is a blunt fact.Regrettably, this editorial mentioned that the Liberian Finance Minister Amara Konneh is yet to make good his pledge to equip government offices with locally produced furniture but what is even more regrettable is that the officials and members of the National Carpenters Union, who are directly affected by this unfulfilled pledge of Minister Konneh, are sitting as spectators expecting their “rights and privileges” to be delivered on “silver platter.” Hardly nothing is heard of this union making conscious effort to ensure that Minister Konneh fulfills this pledge.The way forward for Liberian raw materials to develop our own industries is to stop leaving our destiny in the hands of greedy and self – centered government officials who wish to see no change in the status quo owing to the gains they are reaping on a daily basis. The time is ‘Now’ when all Liberians must, not only through words, but actions such as peace marches and non-violent demonstrations, ensure that the bountiful blessings from God benefit Liberians, many of whom live in abject poverty, instead of a selected few.Let me close with a quote from Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. : “The ultimate tragedy is not the brutality of bad people but the silence of good people.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

GNBS prepared to monitor oil trade offshore Guyana

first_imgWith oil production already on the way and the country gearing up to sell its share of the petroleum, the Guyana National Bureau of Standards (GNBS) said it is prepared for its role in the budding sector, particularly as it relates to ensuring that weighing and measuring devices used in the crude trade are verified.This is in accordance with its mandate from the Weights and Measures Act of 1981. The GNBS is required to ensure that all weighing and measuring devices used in commercial trade are verified. These include measuring devices used in the emerging Oil and Gas Sector of Guyana.It is against this backdrop that aggressive recruitment and further training of staff members were undertaken by the GNBS in preparedness to fulfil its role in the Oil and Gas Sector, that is, to ensure accurate measurements during lifting of crude from the Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel(s).Through the support of the Guyana Petroleum Resources Governance and Management Project, the GNBS has benefited from the training of several inspectors of its Legal Metrology Services Department. These inspectors can now competently witness the proving/verification of the custody transfer meters used on FPSOs.Further, to maintain reliable measurements, the GNBS said in a statement on Thursday that it will conduct routine checks on the offshore facility to ensure that all points, which can affect the metering of the product, are sealed before and after offloading.Inspectors received the requisite training from the Measurement Service Division of Bureau Veritas of North America in accordance with the American Petroleum Institute (API) Petroleum Measurement Standards. The relevant API standards will be adopted as national standards and will be used for verification of the metering system on the FPSO.Meanwhile, GNBS inspectors have also undergone the safety training required for transport and operation on the FPSO. These include the Helicopter Underwater Egress Training (HUET), which is necessary for personnel travelling to the offshore facilities; the Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System (CAEBS) training, for inflight and underwater emergencies; and training on the ISO 45001 Occupational Safety and Health Standard to enhance their safety awareness.“The Bureau will continue to evaluate and expand its role in this emerging sector and further contribute to its sustainability through the provision of standards, testing, measurement and calibration services,” the missive detailed.On December 20, United States oil giant ExxonMobil commenced production of Guyana’s oil in the Stabroek Block, where 14 discoveries of crude in commercial quantities have been made since 2015.Production from the first phase of the Liza field, located in the 6.6 million acres Stabroek Block, is expected to reach full capacity of 120,000 barrels of oil per day in coming months, and the first cargo is set to be sold within several weeks.In fact, the Department of Energy (DoE) last month announced that Shell’s Barbados branch will buy Guyana’s first three lifts. This is a short-term arrangement following the acceleration of first oil which will see Guyana’s first lift in February 2020. The Energy Department had explained that an open market Request for Proposals (RFP) will be launched early this year for a marketing agent to market Guyana’s subsequent crude entitlements from the Liza 1 field on a term basis.With the 120,000 barrels expected daily from production in the Liza Phase 1 Development, it is estimated that Guyana will earn some US$300 million annually.ExxonMobil had previously said there is potential for at least five FPSO vessels on the Stabroek Block, producing more than 750,000 barrels of oil per day by 2025. Liza Phase 2 Development is expected to start-up by mid-2022. It had been reported that the project would use the Liza Unity FPSO to produce up to 220,000 barrels per day.With Hess Guyana Exploration Ltd holding 30 per cent interest in the Stabroek Block, ExxonMobil’s affiliate Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited (EEPGL) has 45 per cent interest and is also the operator of the 6.6 million acres block while CNOOC Petroleum Guyana Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of China’s state-owned CNOOC Limited, holds the remaining 25 per cent interest.last_img read more

Club versus country- AFC say no to FKF demands

first_img0Shares0000Gor Mahia midfielder Cersidy Okeyo attempts to go past AFC Leopards’ Duncan Otieno during their Hull City challenge match at the Afraha Stadium in Nakuru on May 1, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, May 21- A club versus country row is brewing between AFC Leopards and Football Kenya Federation after AFC reiterated on Monday afternoon that the Mashemeji Derby pitting arch rivals Gor Mahia will go on as planned on Saturday in Kakamega.FKF boss Nick Mwendwa had just a few hours earlier said that the derby will be postponed to allow Gor and AFC players to turn up for the national team which takes on Swaziland in a friendly match on Friday in Machakos. But in a strong worded statement released by AFC who are the home team for the tie, they have insisted that the game will go on and furthermore will not release their three players for national duty.“The Executive Committee would like to state that preparations for the derby match slated for May 26 are in top gear and the match is on. We have already paid for the stadium and tickets are being printed,” the statement signed by Secretary General Oscar Igaida said.-‘Funny stadium’The angered statement further added; “We shall not release our players for the Harambee Stars friendlies due to the match and Super Cup set to start on 3rd June. We condemn in the strongest terms possible statements attributed to FKF president Nick Mwendwa that the derby will not be played in a ‘funny stadium’. Didn’t he know Bukhungu was a ‘funny stadium’ when CECAFA was hosted there?”Mwendwa had earlier insinuated that only Kasarani would host the tie and not Bukhungu over what he termed as security risks. The stadium has been closed for the next month to allow the grass on the pitch to be firmed up.The latest stance, with the Kenyan Premier League management earlier in the day insisting that no fixtures will be postponed now throws the tie in limbo.“There will be no derby. Why? If we don’t give the coach the players now, the next window is Ghana. So we bring in a new coach and we take him to play Ghana without seeing or preparing a team. I am not cancelling the friendlies. We are moving to postpone any matches involving AFC and Gor, The rest of the teams have two players, one player so they will continue to play,” Mwendwa said earlier in the day.The recent row now brings into play what seemed like a forgotten battle between the two entities; KPL and FKF.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
