The plan worked, and the cover was successfully installed, providing thermal, micrometeoroid and orbital debris protection for the port. Kimbrough and Whitson finished their EVA at 2:33 pm EDT, having successfully installed the remaining shields on the berthing mechanism port.
Whitson is expected to beat the cumulative spacewalk time of Sunita Williams' 50 hours and 40 minutes, CBS News reported . The spacewalk itself hasn't exactly been a cakewalk. The objective of the spacewalk was to adjust a docking port, which will essentially be a parking spot for SpaceX and Boeing commercial crew capsules , the AP reports.
The 57-year-old biochemistry researcher, former NASA Chief Astronaut, and first female Space Station Commander has been in orbit since November on her third space station stint. Before they could strap down the shields, one slipped away and drifted out of reach. The record adds to Whitson's distinction as the oldest and most experienced spacewoman in the world.
Trump added, "American companies must be prepared to look at other alternatives". The White House said Trump would host Xi next Thursday and Friday at his Mar-a-Lago retreat in Florida. "I just think that President Trump is too smart to give up on that", he said, as quoted by Reuters. Xi would be the second world leader since Trump took office to visit Mar-a-Lago, which Trump has dubbed the "Winter White House".
U.S. President Donald Trump lashed out on Thursday at Republican conservatives who helped torpedo healthcare legislation he backed, escalating a feud within his party that jeopardizes the new administration's legislative agenda. But time and again, the Freedom Caucus is Lucy - pulling the ball out from under us, letting us take the fall and smiling to themselves for making a splash.
The privacy activist, Adam McElhaney , has already raised nearly $150,000 via the GoFundMe page he established for the campaign .

Chamber of Commerce President Thomas J. Donohue. Jerry Brown said the Trump administration has made a "colossal mistake" in unraveling federal policies to address climate change. U.S. Senators Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) and Maggie Hassan (D-NH) joined more than 30 U.S. Senators today to introduce legislation to rescind President Trump's Executive Order that reverses several landmark U.S.
Users can now search Snapchat stories for topics they're interested in, including local basketball games, Fashion Week shows or the scene at their favorite bar. The videos are only included if users post them to the public Our Stories section, and are not taken from personal messages. Last year, Snapchat launched a redesigned search page that made the platform a little more accessible, because it had been hard to find new accounts and content.
He was referring to the fact that Sally Yates, then the acting attorney general, had informed the White House in January that Flynn had apparently misrepresented the nature of his communications with Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador, saying they had not spoken about USA sanctions against Russia - when they had.
A government official with direct knowledge of the case told Reuters that lawyers for Flynn raised the immunity request roughly 10 days ago with representatives of the Senate Intelligence Committee. The House Intelligence Committee's top Democrat says a request by the fired USA national security adviser for immunity to testify to the panel is "momentous".
He ordered a review of emissions limits on coal-fired power plants and restrictions on federal leasing for coal production. The White House did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment on the lawsuit. The plan was opposed by the coal-mining industry, which was concerned about losing market share to cleaner natural gas and renewable energy technologies .
The NCAA will decide next week whether to allow the return of championship games to North Carolina after the state repealed the so-called bathroom bill . "If you say, well you can't go to that region because of state law, it puts everybody in a hard place obviously", Emmert said. "This new law does not repeal HB2".

Marco Rubio - have been targeted by coordinated social media attacks. He added, "I'd also inform the committee that within the last 24 hours, at 10:45 a.m. He didn't offer details, but Watts said the campaigns are evidence that Russian Federation is continuing to seek further unrest among USA democratic institutions, leaders and their constituents.
White House chief of staff Reince Priebus received more than $500,000 in salary and bonuses from the Republican National Committee, which he led through the long and divisive presidential primary. Donald Trump's daughter and son-in-law, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, are retaining scores of property investments while they work in the White House, according to financial disclosures likely to fuel concerns over a conflict of interest.
Thursday's spacewalk was also seven hours and four minutes long, allowing Whitson to set a new record for the most accumulated time spacewalking by a woman - 53 hours and 22 minutes to be exact . For Thursday's spacewalk , the astronauts needed to hook up important heater cables to the docking port. NASA says there is no chance the International Space Station will be struck by a piece of thermal shielding that got away from spacewalking astronauts .
NASA did not reveal which astronaut was responsible, but one of the pair lost grip on a piece of shielding and it floated away into space . A few hours after it came loose, Mission Control also determined that the shield posed no risk to the ISS and will eventually burn up in Earth's atmosphere.
Levandowski is now the VP of engineering at Uber where he heads the company's autonomous vehicle program. Waymo indicated in the suit that it had evidence to show that Levandowski downloaded 14,000 "highly confidential" files just before he resigned a year ago from Google.
This post is here to remind you that today is March 31st, which means it's your last chance to pick up some USB-C gear from Apple at a reasonable price. Apple's new line of MacBook Pros are among the most expensive mainstream laptops on the market. For example, the Apple USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter is now knocked down to $49 (it's £47 in the UK) on Amazon , the same as Apple's discount price.
Whitson and her spacewalking partner, Shane Kimbrough (KIM-broh), need to complete prep work on a docking port. Kimbrough disconnected the port during a spacewalk last Friday. SpaceX and Boeing are building the capsules . Astronauts at the International Space Station were on a spacewalk when a large debris shield got away.
Rhee cautions that this won't happen overnight, but that Bixby will start out with several ingrained advantages. In a way, Samsung indirectly pointed at Apple Siri, Microsoft Cortana , and Gooogle Assistant. Now, it's Samsung to take up the stage for the launch of its Bixby smart assistant . In conclusion we have no idea if Bixby is the next brilliant AI assistant or just a complicated software.
This was three months after the smartphone's first launched at USA carriers. Samsung's new handsets are normally launched in February every year at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The Galaxy S8 series comes with a "bezelless" display , which permits a high-resolution screen to take up 83 percent of the front of the device.
After launching the geostationary commercial satellite toward geosynchronous orbit, the rocket then returned to earth and landed on the " Of Course I Still Love You " autonomous spaceport drone ship in the Atlantic Ocean. The satellite was launched into an initial elliptical orbit ranging 135 miles to 22,002 miles above the Earth's surface. "It did this mission perfectly", said SpaceX CEO Elon Musk.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer was asked at the daily briefing if the administration would be writing its own tax-reform plan or sign on to one, like it did with House Speaker Paul Ryan's health bill. And though he stopped short of saying Farkas' claims proved the President's unsubstantiated claim that former President Obama unlawfully ordered the surveillance of Trump Tower, Spicer frequently mentioned Farkas and Trump's wiretapping claim in the same breath.
SpaceX launched a commercial satellite into space Thursday with the boost of a partly used rocket, a feat that may open an era of cheaper space travel. Although this Falcon 9 rocket has taken up to four months to get to a stage of reusability, Musk said that a next goal would be to significantly shorten the turnaround time for a relaunch - perhaps to just 24hrs - another momentus milestone for SpaceX if it can be achieved.
The visit will come in the first 100 days of the new Trump administration, which still has to flesh out its policy on trade and other key issues. He will discuss global, regional and bilateral issues with Trump, according to a statement from White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
Flynns attorney says the former national security adviser is in discussions with the House and Senate intelligence committees on receiving immunity from unfair prosecution in exchange for questioning. "Gen. Flynn certainly has a story to tell, and he very much wants to tell it, should circumstances permit", he added. Intelligence committees in both the Senate and House are investigating Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
Before Trump's most recent tweets Lu Kang , a Chinese foreign ministry spokesman, said: "We believe that the fundamental and viable way to allow our economic and trade relations to better benefit the two peoples is to work together and enlarge the pie of common interests, rather than merely sticking to the argument that which side has taken a bigger share".
The new assistant , which Samsung is calling Bixby, is created to learn how humans interact with devices. With the prevalence of voice assistants such as Apple's Siri or Microsoft's Cortana , you might think that there's nothing new in the AI assistant space.
Samsung says it's considering bringing the recalled units back to market. Samsung said in a statement , "Regarding the Galaxy Note 7 devices as refurbished phones or rental phones, applicability is dependent upon consultations with regulatory authorities and carriers as well as due consideration of local demand".
When one looks at the history of Resident Evil , it's clear that the series has had close ties to Nintendo . Goldman does not deny that Switch so far is doing well as most buyers are loyal Nintendo fans. Unfortunately, Nintendo did not say what the failure rate was for the Joy-Con desync. Alternatively shoppers can use iStockNow to find Target stores with Switch in stock.
The rocket carried a satellite for communications provider SES into geosynchronous orbit, before landing on a drone ship called "Of Course I love You". SpaceX confirmed to CNNMoney in August that its client for this trip will get a discount on the Falcon 9 sticker price, but it declined to say by how much.
So, needless to say, the mood at Mission Control was tense. Mission Control said there was no risk of it hitting the space station. Whitson and her NASA crewmate, Shane Kimbrough , were also supposed to install four protective shields over the port where the PMA-3 gateway used to be attached.
Prepare yourself for a close encounter with a comet, as one is passing closer to Earth than it ever has before. At 9 p.m. ET Saturday, for example, it should be near the handle of the Big Dipper, which is part of the Ursa Major constellation.
The two astronauts were also given the duty of attaching four thermal security shields on the Tranquility Module of the ISS. At the same time, they began working on a contingency plan to substitute the shielding, and advised the astronauts to finish covering the port with the PMA-3 cover Whitson removed earlier that day.
