    All rocket launches are spectacular, but SpaceX took things to another level over the weekend. On Sunday night (Oct. 7), a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket successfully launched the SAOCOM 1A Earth-observation satellite from Vandenberg Air Force Base on California's Central Coast. And the two-stage booster's first stage landed back at Vandenberg less than 8 minutes after liftoff, pulling off SpaceX's first-ever terra-firma touchdown on California soil. As it rose into the sky, the Falcon 9 spawned a gigantic, gorgeous, glowing cloud that wowed folks throughout the Golden State. The twilight plume had an otherworldly feel, so some observers made a point of stressing the...

    SpaceX has made history by having the first stages of its Falcon 9 rockets conduct controlled landings. One of the side effects of those landings has been triple sonic booms something the U.S. Air Force noted in a statement issued on Tuesday. The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket with the SAOCOM 1A and ITASAT 1 satellites are scheduled to launch from Space Launch Complex-4E on Sunday, Oct. 7, at 7:21 p.m. PDT, a 24 hour slip from the previous launch date. SpaceX noted the change in the schedule in a Twitter post which stated the following: Now targeting October 7...

    The launch is scheduled for shortly after 7:20 p.m., Vandenberg Air Force base officials said in an advisory. The rocket will carry the Argentinian SOACOM 1A radar mapping satellite. Those near the base, which is near Lompoc, may be able to see quite a show as the first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket burns its rocket engines to come to a gentle landing back at the air force base, officials said. "During the landing attempt, residents from Santa Barbara, Ventura and San Luis Obispo counties may hear one or more sonic booms," according to the advisory. "

    More than on the Baltic countries that Francis has visited in recent days, the attention of the media has inexorably focused on what he will say at the end of the journey, on the plane back to Rome, when he will again be interviewed on the scandal of ex-cardinal Theodore McCarrick. Since the sensational allegations of former United States nuncio Carlo Maria Vigan, who has accused Francis of having covered up that scandal in spite of being aware of it, more than a month has gone by. Without Francis having given the slightest response to the accusations.Meanwhile, however, another storm...

    BUENOS AIRES (AFP) - Ex-Argentina president Cristina Kirchner was charged with corruption as a judge asked that her parliamentary immunity be lifted so she can be detained, reports said Monday. She is accused of having accepted tens of millions of dollars in bribes in the notorious "corruption notebooks" scandal that has rocked Argentina's political and business elites. As a senator, Kirchner is protected by parliamentary immunity from imprisonment, although not from prosecution. Unless that immunity is lifted, she cannot be jailed, even if found guilty. However, last month the Senate did vote to partially lift her immunity so that investigators...

    BUENOS AIRES, Argentina ( - Pope Francis, currently sporting a zero-tolerance policy in Rome, was known more for his zero-transparency policy concerning clerical sex abuse as the archbishop of Buenos Aires, Argentina. In 1989, Sebastin Cuattromo, a student at a Catholic school in Buenos Aires, was the victim of homosexual predation by a teacher at the school, Br. Fernando Enrique Picciochi, S.M. In 2002, when Cuattromo sought help in seeking justice from the diocese then headed by Cdl. Jorge Bergoglio, his vicar, Fr. Mario Poli, stonewalled Cuattromo for seven years. One of the first acts that Bergoglio would do as...

    BUENOS AIRES, Argentina ( - Pope Francis, currentlyimplicatedin protecting homosexual predator and former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, reportedly was involved in a similar cover-upwhile archbishop of Buenos Aires, Argentina. The case involves the late homosexual Bp.Juan Carlos Maccarone, formerly ofSantiago del Estero, who resignedas bishop in 2005 after a video surfaced of hishomosexual encounter with 23-year-oldAlfredo Serrano.

    In 2016, the ex Russian ambassador alerted Argentine officials to 12 suitcases found hidden in an embassy annex. The problem? They were packed full of drugs. After the tip-off, Argentine police got into the room with an embassy key in the dead of night, and replaced the cocaine with flour. They also tagged the cases with GPS tracking devices. The plan was to wait for the owners to collect their cases, then swoop. But police were in for a very long wait, as Argentine Security Minister Patricia Bullrich explained. "The operation took 14 months and at one point we thought...

Until recently, it might have sounded like the plot of a geopolitical thriller in a region once considered Americas backyard. But this is what Defense Secretary James N. Mattis faced on his visit this week to several South American nations, where economic and military posturing by Beijing and Moscow has been on the rise for the past decade. Analysts say Chinese loans in recent years have allowed authoritarian leaders to consolidate power in Venezuela, Bolivia and Nicaragua,...

    China made a dumb move in targeting Americas heartland with tariffs. Soybeans are a case in point. I understood politically why they chose soybeans, but they made a dumb move, says John Baize, a market analyst with the U.S. Soybean Export Council. The U.S. is the number one exporter of soybeans. Brazil is number two. No one comes close after that except for Argentina, which is the largest exporter of soymeal and soybean oil. Soybeans dont fall from the sky, so China has very little mega-markets outside of the U.S. Brazil is the only one, really. And now they are...
