Japan satellite blasts into space to deliver artificial meteors

A rocket carrying a satellite on a mission to deliver the world's first artificial meteor shower blasted into space on Friday, Japanese scientists said. A start-up based in Tokyo developed the micro-satellite for the celestial show over Hiroshima early next year as the initial experiment for what it calls a "shooting stars on demand" service. The satellite is to release tiny balls that glow brightly as they hurtle through the atmosphere, simulating a meteor shower.

The Promise of 5G Is the Problem With Huawei in Eyes of Critics

The vulnerability helps explain the rising tension between the U.S. and Huawei Technologies Co., China’s largest technology company. Huawei is pushing for a global leadership role in 5G, but American officials suspect that would help Beijing spy on Western governments and companies. “Huawei’s significant presence in 5G creates a new vector for possible cyber-espionage and malware,” Michael Wessel, a commissioner on the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission that advises Congress, s...

Hitachi Can't Cut Its Nuclear Bonds Soon Enough

The Japanese conglomerate finally made a decision to suspend construction of its once-ambitious nuclear power station on the U.K.’s Welsh coast, after months of uncertainty. It isn’t clear whether Hitachi will fully exit the Wylfa project or just leave it offline. Getting rid of it is probably the best way forward, much as Toshiba Corp. found in the case of Westinghouse Electric Co., the bankrupt U.S. nuclear unit that was sold last year. There are no obvious ways to fix Hitachi’s U.K. nuclea...

Some Alzheimer's sufferers never develop symptoms, study shows, and keeping active may be the secret

Alzheimer's disease does not need to bring memory loss or confusion if sufferers keep themselves fit and strong in later life, a new study suggests. Researchers followed 456 elderly people who were enrolled in a memory and ageing project until their deaths, and then looked at their brains to find out who was suffering from clinical dementia. Surprisingly many who had clear signs of Alzheimer’s disease in their brains had shown no symptoms before their death. Those who appeared protected agai...

U.S. State Department says may ask Trump to scrap another Obama climate order

Such a move would deepen the Trump administration's already broad rejection of former President Barack Obama's policies on global warming, which Trump has repeatedly suggested is not as serious as scientists claim. In the 2014 executive order, Obama directed the State Department and other agencies to factor climate resilience into development programs to help vulnerable populations around the world protect themselves from the effects of droughts, floods, and storms exacerbated by climate change...

Divers spot giant white shark off Hawaii coast

An enormous great white shark -- believed to be one of the biggest on record -- has been spotted off the coast of Hawaii by divers who took a swim with the predator. The 20-foot (six-meter) female shark -- bearing similar markings as "Deep Blue," the largest great white shark recorded -- made its surprise appearance on Tuesday, joining other sharks feasting on a sperm whale carcass off Oahu.

Norway's PM Solberg forms majority center-right government

Norway is getting its first non-socialist majority government since 1985," Solberg said. Norway has often been ruled by minority governments which are forced to seek support in parliament from opposition parties to pass laws.
