  • Marine Le Pen's niece tells Trump supporters: We want our country back too

    Golocal247.com news

    Marine Le Pen's niece has echoed Donald Trump as she called for a “France first” agenda and told US right-wingers: “Just like you, we want our country back.” Marion Maréchal-Le Pen cited Mr Trump’s election victory and the Brexit vote in 2016 as inspiration for France to distance itself from the European Union (EU).  She used an address to the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday to praise the US president’s success in putting conservatism at the top of the political agenda.  And she claimed the French youth is right-leaning and believers in national identity as she issued a call to arms for the populist revolution.  “Let me be clear here. I’m not offended when I hear President Donald Trump say ‘America first’,” Ms Le Pen said.  “In fact, I want America first for the American people, I want Britain first for the British people and I want France first for the French people." Ms Le Pen, a 28-year-old National Front politician whose aunt led the party in last year’s election, had faced controversy over her appearance from the US media given her hardline views.  Taking to the stage, she joked away the row, saying she was “less terrifying” than the US newspapers had portrayed.  In a 10-minute speech which saw mentions of the EU booed by the right-wing crowd, Ms Le Pen suggested she wanted to repeat in France what Mr Trump had achieved in America.  “Just like you, we want our country back. I came here to tell you that there is a youth ready for this fight in Europe today,” she said.  “A youth who believes in hard work, who believe the flag means something, who want to preserve individual freedom and private property.” Ms Le Pen repeatedly criticised the EU for “slowly killing” nation states and warned over the impact of “political correctness” and “massive immigration” in France.  “The last two years have shown one thing: Never underestimate the people,” she said.  Ms Le Pen continued:“When the people are given the opportunity to take their country back, they will seize it. “Through your actions and your talents, you have succeeded in putting conservatism right back to the top of the political agenda.  “Let us build on what you have achieved here so that both sides on the Atlantic a conservative agenda will remain.”

  • SpaceX boat tries to catch pricey rocket nosecone in the Pacific Ocean, but misses

    Golocal247.com news

    After SpaceX successfully blasted three satellites into space early Thursday morning, the company tried to catch the Falcon 9 rocket's expensive nosecone, also known as a fairing, on a ship in the Pacific Ocean. The vessel, named "Mr. Steven," was outfitted with a giant net. According to SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, the boat missed catching the fairing by "a few hundred meters," but he thinks there's a simple fix: Bigger parachutes to better control the parachuting fairing. Missed by a few hundred meters, but fairing landed intact in water. Should be able catch it with slightly bigger chutes to slow down descent. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 22, 2018 The fairing, which sheltered and released the payload during the rocket launch, parachuted down to the Pacific Ocean. A GPS guidance system helped guide the parachute close to the long, outstretched metallic arms of the awaiting ship. Assuming the nosecone is in good shape, SpaceX may still try and retrieve it from the water.  Falcon fairing half as seen from our catcher’s mitt in boat form, Mr. Steven. No apparent damage from reentry and splashdown. A post shared by Elon Musk (@elonmusk) on Feb 22, 2018 at 7:36am PST Recovery of the rocket fairing is aimed at bringing down the cost of access to space, since this particular part of the rocket costs between $5 and $6 million dollars.  SpaceX famously lands its rocket boosters back on Earth and reuses them in subsequent launches, but it never before attempted to catch a rocket's fairing. SpaceX plans to outcompete its rocket rivals by reusing most of its rockets, as opposing to building new components for each launch.  SEE ALSO: Elon Musk's 'Starman' Tesla Roadster isn't your typical piece of space junk This launch, for example, featured a Falcon 9 rocket booster that had previously been to space in August 2017. SpaceX decided not to recover the rocket for a potential third launch, however.   Going to try to catch the giant fairing (nosecone) of Falcon 9 as it falls back from space at about eight times the speed of sound. It has onboard thrusters and a guidance system to bring it through the atmosphere intact, then releases a parafoil and our ship, named Mr. Steven, with basically a giant catcher’s mitt welded on, tries to catch it. A post shared by Elon Musk (@elonmusk) on Feb 22, 2018 at 6:07am PST Instead, the rocket fell back to Earth and crashed into the Pacific Ocean. According to SpaceX firmware engineer Tom Praderio, "SpaceX is making room for its next iteration of Falcon 9 rockets," so it had no reason to land and reuse the rocket for a third launch.  A screenshot of the Falcon 9 rocket second stage heading towards low-Earth orbit. The curvature of the Earth can be seen in the background.Image: spacexThe Falcon 9 rockets have proven to be quite reliable, as SpaceX launched them into space 18 times last year, with no failures. The company plans to surpass these launch numbers this year.  Besides the primary payload — a Spanish satellite that can capture extremely high-resolution images of Earth — SpaceX launched two of its own microsatellites. These satellites are a test, but likely the first of thousands of internet-beaming satellites called Starlink, which is intended to provide high-speed internet access to the web-deprived corners of the world, sometime in the early to mid 2020s. Today’s Falcon launch carries 2 SpaceX test satellites for global broadband. If successful, Starlink constellation will serve least served. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 21, 2018 The Federal Communications Commission has yet to approve the SpaceX Starlink constellation, but last week FCC chairmen Ajit Pai urged commissioners to approve the bold space internet project.  The PAZ satellite successfully separating from the Falcon 9 rocket.Image: spacex WATCH: Neil DeGrasse Tyson explains what 'shoot for the moon' actually means
