Libya slave trade is a slap on Nigeria- Senate
It also urged Buhari to use the summit as an opportunity to table the matter before the Libyan delegation. The Senate yesterday charged the Federal Government to save Nigerians from slave auctions in Libya.
Watch for 2017's first and last supermoon
Most astronomers suggest watching the supermoon right after sunset and into moonrise, and minutes before the next sunrise as well. Observers in Wales will get to see the moon rise over Cardiff around 4.33pm, before it sets at 8.28am the following day.
The spacecraft - now over 141 times the distance between the earth and the sun - is expected to go dark some time in the next five years as the remaining energy is depleted.
"The Voyager flight team dug up decades-old data and examined the software that was coded in an outdated assembler language, to make sure we could safely test the thrusters", Chris Jones, chief engineer at JPL, said in a statement. It did. After almost four decades of dormancy, the Aerojet Rocketdyne manufactured thrusters fired perfectly.
"The Voyager team got more excited each time with each milestone in the thruster test", JPL propulsion engineer Todd Barber added in the blog post. Ground control was able to reconfigure them to fire in a milliseconds-long pulse mode; the Verge noted the ability to use the TCM thrusters as a replacement for the main set "should extend [Voyager 1's] life by a couple of years". The same kind of thruster, called the MR-103, flew on other NASA spacecraft as well, such as Cassini and Dawn. According to NASA, the re-awakened thrusters were just as effective as the attitude control thrusters. The mood was one of relaxation, joy and wonder after observing these well-rested thrusters pull up the baton as if no time had moved at all.
Because of the success in the attempt to test Voyager 1's TCM thrusters, NASA plans to test the ones on Voyager 2. JPL operates Voyager and the Deep Space Network (DSN) that receives the signals. The attitude control thrusters now used for Voyager 2 are not yet as degraded as Voyager 1's, however. The Voyager missions are a part of the NASA Heliophysics System Observatory, sponsored by the Heliophysics Division of the Science Mission Directorate in Washington.

It has 1 GB RAM , which is disappointing when compared to the Xiaomi Redmi 5A, which lets you choose between 2 GB and 3 GB RAM . The battery of the phone is 5000mAh and that is why the tagline of the Micromax Bharat 5 smartphone is " The Power of 5 ".
Trump says U.S. will 'take care of' North Korean launch
The Democratic leaders instead encouraged their Republican counterparts to work out a deal without the president's involvement. Funds expired at the end of September, and Republicans and Democrats have fought over how to pay for an extension.
