NASA’s Antares Explosion: What it Means
The good news—the very, very good news—is that no one was aboard Orbital Science’s Antares booster when it exploded just six seconds after leaving the launch pad on Wallops Island, Va. at 6:30 PM EDT on Oct. 28. It was the fifth launch of the Antares and the fourth that was headed for the International Space Station (ISS) on a resupply mission. The booster made it barely 200 feet off the ground. The bad news—the very, very bad news—is what this means for Orbital as a continued player in the competition to supply the ISS. It was in 2008 that Orbital (which has a long history in the space biz) a...

North Dakota Supreme Court Upholds Law Restricting Medication Abortion
Oct 28 (Reuters) - The North Dakota Supreme Court upheld on Tuesday a state law that restricts medication abortion, the non-surgical interruption of a pregnancy using drugs, saying it was constitutional.

The ruling reversed a district court judgment that had kept the state, which has some of the strictest abortion rules in the country, from enforcing the law. ...
