    Seoul (AFP) – North Korea has been using satellite subterfuge to test parts of a so-called "monster" missile, analysts say, as it gears up for a sanctions-shattering launch ahead of a key domestic anniversary. Pyongyang has conducted a record nine weapons tests so far this year, in what experts see as an effort to work through a laundry list of strategic weapons set out by leader Kim Jong Un. One top priority is an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that can carry multiple warheads -- the Hwasong-17, dubbed a "monster missile" and first unveiled at a parade in October 2020. It...

    MYSTERY WIRE — NASA is preparing to launch its fourth crew of astronauts to the International Space Station aboard a SpaceX Dragon capsule on October 30. The four crew members – three American and one German – have given their blessings to actor William Shatner, who will rocket into space next week — boldly going where no other sci-fi stars have gone before. Speaking ahead of their launch, the crew gave their best Vulcan salutes to space-bound actor William Shatner. Earlier this week, Jeff Bezos’ space travel company, Blue Origin, announced Captain Kirk himself will be rocketing into space from...

    North Korea has held a military parade to mark the communist state's 73rd founding anniversary, but did not display any major ballistic missiles. State media photos of the night-time parade showed marching soldiers and workers in hazmat suits instead. Leader Kim Jong-un, who looked visibly slimmer, was seen among the unmasked crowds hugging children. North Korea is suffering from food shortages and a deepening economic crisis due to the Covid-19 pandemic. On Thursday, state media released images of fire trucks, tractors, and fireworks at the parade. One section of the parade marched in what appeared to be bright red hazmat...

    North Korea wants a raft of international sanctions eased – including on imports of luxury items such as high-class liquors and suits – before it will restart denuclearisation talks with the United States, South Korean lawmakers have said. Pyongyang has also called for sanctions banning its metal exports and imports of refined fuel and other necessities to be lifted, the lawmakers said on Tuesday after being briefed by Park Jie-won, head of the South Korea’s National Intelligence Service (NIS). The remarks came as the NIS said North Korea was distributing emergency military reserves of rice amid a severe food shortage...

    The younger sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un fired back at the White House on Monday with a vague warning about what would happen if the Biden administration got off on the wrong foot with Pyongyang. CNN reported that Kim Yo Jong, who officially holds a high-ranking position in North Korea's only political party, issued a statement warning the White House against "causing a stink with its first step," an apparent reference to any attempt by the Biden administration to reverse moves made by President Trump...

    Are we still numbering the weeks of stay-at-home quarantine stuff? If we are, I apologize, because I have no idea which one we’re starting now. The only thing of which I am certain is that it’s Monday, April 9476th, 2020 today. We kinda/sorta had some sports to pay attention to over the weekend, as the social-distance NFL draft wrapped up for a season that still may not happen. That wasn’t much comfort for me, as I am not a fan of the current draft format, which I explained in my Friday column. The one news story that played out over...

    Reconnaissance of a North Korean launch site indicates that Kim Jong-Un may be preparing to test a long-range ballistic missile, three U.S. intelligence officials who monitor North Korea in different agencies tell TIME. The intelligence comes ahead of a fast-approaching self-declared year-end deadline that Kim set in an April 12 speech for a nuclear deal with the U.S. In recent weeks, North Korea has reopened its Sohae Satellite Launching Station and resumed testing what U.S. intelligence officials and private experts suspect may be a solid fuel rocket engine that could be used in an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching...

    A war of words between President Trump and North Korea has escalated this week. It started Tuesday with a member of North Korea’s Foreign Ministry suggesting the US should choose what kind of “Christmas Gift” it wanted. North Korea has set the end of the year as deadline for some kind of progress on stalled denuclearization talks with the US. So this was seen as a threat that North Korea could soon launch another long-range missile if it doesn’t receive some sanctions relief this month: In a statement translated on the state news agency, Ri Thae Song, a first...

    Delta Air Lines will show unedited versions of “Booksmart” and “Rocketman” in its in-flight film offerings after critics called out the airline for censoring sexuality, including same-sex love, in previously deleted scenes. The company said in a statement Thursday that it did not ask for any “homosexual content” to be removed from the films. “We value our in-flight entertainment options as a means to reflect the diversity of the world,” the company said. “We are reviewing the processes of our third-party editing vendors to ensure that they are aligned with our values of diversity and inclusion.” The issue of censorship...

    Rocketman also took a steep 57 percent dive in its second weekend, which brings the overall ten-day take to a pathetic $47.5 million. This Elton John biopic was supposed to be this year’s Bohemian Rhapsody, but Freddie Mercury’s biopic opened higher ($51 million) than Rocketman’s total ten day haul. In fact, after its second weekend, Bohemian Rhapsody had already cleared the $100 million mark. So what went so wrong here? After all, Rocketman received much better reviews than Bohemian Rhapsody (90 percent fresh for Rocketman compared to Bohemian’s barely fresh 61 percent), Elton John was always a bigger star than...
