Chinese vaccines sweep world, despite concerns

In what some are calling “vaccine diplomacy,” China is offering its vaccines to dozens of poorer nations around the world. But concerns over safety and efficacy, as well as a dearth of publicly available data also means many are suspicious. (March 2)

SpaceX once left its rocket engineers on an island without food, leading them to mutiny, according to a new book

Elon Musk Elon Musk.

Susan Walsh/AP

  • SpaceX’s first engineers lived on a remote Pacific island to prepare the company’s earliest rocket for launch.
  • In the first year that SpaceX was on the island, food shipments sometimes failed.
  • So one day, hungry engineers refused to work until a helicopter brought chicken and cigarettes.
  • Visit the Business section of Insider for more stories.

In SpaceX’s earliest days, its rocket engineers lived on a remote Pacific island, where they occasionally ran out of food.

On that island, called Omelek, the team was racing to build a launchpad and set up the company’s Falcon 1 rocket.

Journalist Eric Berger, who works as the space editor at Ars Technica, describes those early days of Elon Musk’s rocket company in his new book, Liftoff, which will be published Tuesday. Berger’s telling of SpaceX’s beginnings is packed with anecdotes that have never been previously reported – such as Elon Musk’s first encounter with a Pop-Tart, a rocket launch attempt thwarted by salty ocean spray, and an island mutiny staged by hungry workers in 2005.

LIFTOFF cover eric berger book

HarperCollins Publishers

SpaceX engineers were living and working on Omelek, part of the Marshall Islands’ Kwajalein Atoll, because that’s the spot the company chose to escape the US Air Force. The Air Force had indefinitely delayed the company’s efforts to launch from California. But the US Army, which oversaw the atoll, was friendlier to SpaceX’s plans. Being close to the equator also made it easier to reach orbit.

However, during that first year on the island, Berger writes, “logistics were poor.” Supply deliveries were often delayed, and the workers sometimes went without food.

So one day in the fall of 2005, tensions boiled over into mutiny. The employees went on strike to force an emergency supply drop, and were eventually quelled with chicken wings and cigarettes.

‘We were just wild animals on the island, waiting for food’

Tweets Review: Senators to grill FBI Director Christopher Wray over security failures during the January 6 insurrection

    On this day in 1965, America’s military kicks off a three-year air campaign against North Vietnam: Operation Rolling Thunder. By the time it ends in 1968, nearly a million tons of bombs will have been dropped. That’s more than the total U.S. tonnage to fall on Nazi Germany.

    The Trump families escape from criminal prosecution for 40 years shows how unjust the US judicial system is. The Trumps were too rich so they could afford too good lawyers, so the public prosecutors did not find it beneficial for their careers to go after them. https://twitter.com/OlgaNYC1211/status/1366542798049185794

    Can anybody explain to me why it is standard practice to lie about everything (like Trump), while the US sentence a couple of thousand of people to prison for perjury each year? Isn’t that hypocrisy?
    Why is truth not considered a value in the US?

  9.  Michael Novakhov Retweeted

    The big question for US law enforcement & the US judicial system is whether it will be able to prosecute Trump for his many & blatant crimes. Is the US a country of the rule of law or a state captured by a corrupt elite? I am waiting for the answer.
