First Signs Of Weird Quantum Property Of Empty Space?

VLT Observations Of Neutron Star May Confirm 80-Year-Old Prediction About The Vacuum Birefringence

By studying the light emitted from an extraordinarily dense and strongly magnetized neutron star using ESO’s Very Large Telescope, astronomers may have found the first observational indications of a strange quantum effect, first predicted in the 1930s. The polarization of the observed light suggests that the empty space around the neutron star is subject to a quantum effect known as vacuum birefringence.

Here We Go Again -- ISS Resupply Mission Goes Astray

Russian Resupply Ship Experiences 'Anomaly'

We've heard versions of this story before... but this time, its the Russians that are bemoaning their circumstances. The Russian space agency Roscosmos has confirmed that a Progress cargo resupply spacecraft bound for the International Space Station has been lost. The spacecraft launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan Thursday on a Soyuz rocket, but experienced an anomaly around six and a half minutes into its flight. Six crew members living aboard the space station are safe and have been informed of the mission's status. Both the Russian and U.S. segments of the station continue to operate normally with onboard supplies at good levels.

Airborne 12.02.16: Stratos 714 1st Flt, TFR Politics, Airbus Job Cuts

On November 21, the Stratos 714 very light jet took to the sky. The Stratos 714 was devised as a response to the lower performance single engine VLJs proposed about a decade ago which include the D-Jet, the Cirrus Jet, the Piper Jet, and some others. Stratos says they saw little advantage in developing a single jet-engine aircraft that has lower performance than an equivalent propeller aircraft. They decided to go with an aircraft that has a service ceiling of 41,000 feet and will cruise at 415 KTAS. Amid claims of the misuse of a federal authority, the FAA has placed a temporary flight restriction over the area where protesters are attempting to stop the Standing Rock oil pipeline in North Dakota. The TFR prevents all flights over the protest area except aircraft operating in support of law enforcement. That includes UAVs which might capture video an
