As Trump lands in Hanoi, experts warn against hasty peace deal with North Korea

As Trump lands in Hanoi, experts warn against hasty peace deal with North KoreaTRUMP ARRIVES IN HANOI, TALKS WITH KIM TO BEGIN ON WEDNESDAY (1400 GMT) U.S. President Donald Trump has arrived in the Vietnamese capital Hanoi for his second summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on dismantling Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons program. Kim arrived earlier in the day after a two and a half-day train journey from Pyongyang and through China, and then a 170-km (105-mile) road journey from the Vietnamese border to Hanoi. While there is no real expectation that the second meeting between the two will bring a final deal on ridding North Korea of nuclear weapons that threaten the United States, there are some hopes it could lead to a declaration that the 1950-53 Korean War is at last formally over.

Cheers as Mars InSight spacecraft lands on Red Planet

Cheers as Mars InSight spacecraft lands on Red PlanetCheers and applause erupted at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory on Monday as a waist-high unmanned lander, called InSight, touched down on Mars, capping a nearly seven-year journey from design to launch to landing. The dramatic arrival of the $ 993 million spacecraft — designed to listen for quakes and tremors as a way to unveil the Red Planet’s inner mysteries, how it formed billions of years ago and, by extension, how other rocky planets like Earth took shape — marked the eighth successful landing on Mars in NASA’s history. “Touchdown confirmed,” a mission control operator at NASA said, as pent-up anxiety and excitement surged through the room, and dozens of scientists leapt from their seats to embrace each other.

InSight Mission Lands On Mars, Beams Back First Photo From Its New HomeAfter an epic journey that lasted seven months and carried it more than 300 million miles through space, NASA’s historic InSight mission has finally landed on Mars. The InSight Mars lander touched down on Elysium Planitia, just north of the Martian equator, at around 2.54 p.m. EST earlier today — and has already sent home its first photo from its new home. According to NASA, mission engineers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, have picked up a radio signal — either coming from the InSight lander or from one of the two MarCO mini-satellites accompanying the mission — which let them know that the spacecraft has made contact with the Martian soil.
