  • Get a grip on your wallet, for a cool $9.5 million, you could take a vacation to the Von Braun Rotating Space Station which is expected to be the first commercial space construction project in history. Plans for the cruise-ship style floating hotel come from the Californian company The Gateway Foundation.  Their goal is to begin construction by 2025 and to be open for business by 2027. Initially, the station will be used by  national space agencies to conduct low gravity research, but will also offer some rooms to space tourists who want to experience life on a large space station with the comfort of low gravity and the feel of a nice hotel. Newly released images and video of the station shows it resembles a rotating wheel comprised of 24 modules. The wheel’s rotation will create a simulated gravity. The design is actually two concentric rings, the inner ring is designed for docking and unloading while the outer ring is the Habitation Ring.  This is where people will reside in 40x60 ft Modules that will come in a variety of configurations including: Air Water Power (AWP) Module Gymnasium and Assembly (GA) Module Kitchen, Restaurant and Bar (KRB) Module Crew Quarters Module, which will be configurable for gravity and micro-gravity habitation. Privately owned modules used for villas, hotels, or commercial activity. Government owned modules used for scientific research, training and staging facilities. Hotels chains will operate the rooms in the tourist modules and restaurant chains operate the different restaurants. In case of an emergency, the hotel has emergency escape vehicles that will be able to evacuate the entire 450 person population of the space hotel, if necessary. App users click here to see a video explaining the space hotel. The Gateway Foundation's hotel design is named for Wernher von Braun, an aerospace engineer who pioneered rocket technology, first in Germany and later in the United States. The Von Braun station is not the only one in development,  US-based space tech startup Orion Span released plans earlier this year for a luxury space hotel called Aurora Station, which it hopes to launch in 2022.

  • Angered by stories over the weekend about possible sexual misconduct by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his law school days at Yale University, one progressive Democrat in Congress is ready to introduce articles of impeachment against Kavanaugh - but there is no guarantee the issue would be acted upon by the House. 'I believe Christine Blasey Ford. I believe Deborah Ramirez,' Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) tweeted. 'It is our responsibility to collectively affirm the dignity and humanity of survivors.' But even as some Democrats in Congress call for more answers about the FBI investigation of complaints about Kavanaugh, the lawmaker in charge of the committee which would deal with an impeachment effort said Monday that it wasn't on his radar screen. Instead, Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) told a New York radio show that his panel's various investigations of President Trump leave little time or oxygen to specifically go through allegations against Kavanaugh. “Even Jerry Nadler figured out that impeachment of Brett Kavanaugh, based on this ridiculous accusation, is a Bridge Too Far,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC). But there were also Democrats in Congress who disagreed with Nadler, as they demanded a further investigation not only of Kavanaugh, but of the FBI background investigation of the Justice. 'Those who voted yes on his nomination betrayed the women of this country and we learn more of the depth of that betrayal with every new detail & allegation,' tweeted Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY). Only one member of the Supreme Court has ever gone through impeachment proceedings, Justice Samuel Chase, who was accused of being too partisan to serve on the bench. While he was a Justice, Chase had campaigned in the 1800 election for John Adams, who lost that election to Thomas Jefferson. Looking for payback, the House approved articles of impeachment against Justice Chase for his partisan activities, but the Senate refused to convict. On the floor, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell rebuffed talk of Kavanaugh's impeachment. 'This is not just a left-wing obsession with one man. It is part of a deliberate effort to attack judicial independence,' McConnell said in a Senate floor speech, as he said this was more than a case of 'sour grapes.' 'Six of the Democrat presidential candidates — plus one who has now quit to run for the Senate — have publicly flirted with packing the Supreme Court,' McConnell said. 'Court-packing. Today’s bold new Democrat idea is a failed power grab from the 1930s,' McConnell added, referring to the effort by Democrats to help President Franklin D. Roosevelt achieve more of his New Deal platform, without interference by the Supreme Court.
