John Young, Who Led First Space Shuttle Mission, Dies at 87

As Mr. Crippen put it: “It’s rare when an individual comes along that actually personifies his chosen profession, but rare is what John Young is.”After serving as a Navy test pilot, Mr. Young joined NASA in 1962 at the outset of the Gemini program, a bridge between the missions of the original Mercury 7 astronauts and the Apollo program, which sent men to the moon.Mr. Young flew twice in Gemini spaceships, commanded the Apollo mission that preceded Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin’s landing on the lunar surface and later drove a rover vehicle through the moon’s highlands. He closed out his explorations of space by flying on two shuttle missions.PhotoMr. Young aboard Gemini 3 in March 1965 awaiting its launching. It was the first manned mission of the Gemini program. He flew with Gus Grissom, who fired rockets to carry out the first manual change of orbit in a spacecraft.Credit NASAMr. Young had a mischievous side and something of a rebellious streak. He smuggled a corned beef sandwich aboard Gemini 3 to the consternation of NASA officials, who feared that crumbs could have damaged the spacecraft’s systems, though that did not happen.On his flight to the moon, he complained graphically to his fellow crewmen about his flatulence, evidently caused by the potassium-fortified orange juice he was required to drink.

Glowing Auras and ‘Black Money’: The Pentagon’s Mysterious U.F.O. Program

Officials with the program have also studied videos of encounters between unknown objects and American military aircraft — including one released in August of a whitish oval object, about the size of a commercial plane, chased by two Navy F/A-18F fighter jets from the aircraft carrier Nimitz off the coast of San Diego in 2004.Mr. Reid, who retired from Congress this year, said he was proud of the program. “I’m not embarrassed or ashamed or sorry I got this thing going,” Mr. Reid said in a recent interview in Nevada. “I think it’s one of the good things I did in my congressional service […]

Trump Threatens ‘Fire and Fury’ Against North Korea if It Endangers U.S.

“Will only the U.S. have option called ‘preventive war’ as is claimed by it?” the Strategic Force of the North’s Korean People’s Army, or K.P.A., said in a statement. “It is a daydream for the U.S. to think that its mainland is an invulnerable Heavenly kingdom.”Continue reading the main story“The U.S. should clearly face up to the fact that the ballistic rockets of the Strategic Force of the K.P.A. are now on constant standby, facing the Pacific Ocean and pay deep attention to their azimuth angle for launch,” the statement said.Mr. Trump’s stark comments went well beyond the firm but measured language typically preferred by American presidents in confronting North Korea, and indeed seemed almost to echo the bellicose words used by Mr. […]

Scaramucci on Leaks: ‘I’m Going to Fire Everybody’

Both Mr. Priebus and Mr. Spicer had argued forcefully against bringing on Mr. Scaramucci, whose hiring seemed to signal a pivot by the White House toward surrounding Mr. Trump with people more likely to stick by the campaign coda of “let Trump be Trump.”On Tuesday evening, Mr. Trump was joined on Air Force One by two former campaign hands, Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie, who traveled with him to Youngstown, Ohio, for a campaign rally.Mr. Trump has long been suspicious, by contrast, of the party committee hires, whose personal loyalty he has repeatedly questioned.For his part, Mr. Short’s standing with the president and his inner circle never fully recovered from the hit it took in October, when he visibly and abruptly departed Trump Tower after the emergence of the “Access Hollywood” tape in which Mr. Trump had been captured in 2005 speaking in vulgar terms about grabbing women’s genitals without their consent. And some in the White House had long believed that Mr. […]

As the truth emerges, Gemma discovers—the hard way—that invisibility comes with its own set of problems . My name is Gemma Keyes. Other than my name, I am utterly forgettable—so those who never paid much attention to me in the first place haven’t exactly noticed that I’ve disappeared . Vanished. Oh, it’s much more complicated than it sounds. And let me tell you, the adjustment is difficult. I should tell you about Dr. Samuel Bickel, world-renowned nanophysicist. We used to work together, but I’ll be candid with you: He’s supposed to be dead . Well, he’s not . (Imagine my surprise.) Instead of the proverbial “six feet under,” he’s subsisting in an abandoned devolution cavern beneath the old Manzano Weapons Storage Facility on Kirtland Air Force Base here in Albuquerque. “I need to show you what I’m protecting here, Gemma,” he insisted. I stared into the clear glass case. I could hear . . . humming, clicking, buzzing. A faint haze inside the box shifted. Dissolved. Came back together. It reminded me of how mercury, when released on a plate, will flow and form new shapes. Only this, this thing was “flowing and forming” in midair . “Do you see them?” Dr. Bickel asked. “Them?” I was confused. My mouth opened to a stunned “o” as the silver haze dissolved into blue letters. H   E   L   L   O Dr. Bickel hadn’t pressed any buttons. Hadn’t said anything. Hadn’t gestured. He grinned. “Ah.
