Conclusion: Too Few People Are Dying In Space

On the 45th anniversary of the first flight to land humans on the moon, a new book gives one author's view as to why we haven't been back there or anywhere beyond earth orbit in over four decades, and why we are dependent on Russia for access to what he calls "our own space station."

Also: UK To OSH--By Microlight, On The Eve of Oshkosh 2014, FAA OKs SpaceX TX Launch Site, Extra-Capacity Q400 NextGen

Details of the shoot down of MH17 are changing rapidly and very few things are known for sure. It appears that flight MH17 was on an approved flight path over Ukraine when it was shot down. Early indications are that Russian backed Ukrainian separatist may have pulled the trigger. However, there is not yet definite proof this is the case. Cloud-based syncing has been introduced on the latest version of ForeFlight for iOS devices allowing seamless transfers of information between an iPhone and iPad using the same login.

Airborne 07.16.14: A330neo Intro'd, FAA v Riggs--Too Little/Late, Cygnus At ISS

Also: PS Engineering PA450 Announced, Eclipse 500 PLUS, Classic Aero-TV: Launch Of STS-134, CSeries Absent Farnborough, Blue Angels Roster Delayed

Airbus has ended months of speculation about the possibility of a re-engined version of its A330 widebody airplane and announced the A330-800neo and A330-900neo at the Farnborough air show. The company says the new airplane will incorporate latest generation Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines.

Riggs and an innocent and unknowing passenger were killed in a reckless stunt in China in September of 2013, but the FAA action relates earlier violations and another case of his recklessness in May of 2012 that cost the lives of two other people. A multitude of NASA research investigations, crew provisions, hardware and science experiments from across the country arrived early this morning at the International Space
