Cathay Pacific shares slide to nine-year low as data leak rattles investors

Cathay Pacific shares slide to nine-year low as data leak rattles investorsShares of Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd slid nearly 7 percent to a nine-year low on Thursday after it said data of about 9.4 million passengers of Cathay and its unit, Hong Kong Dragon Airlines Ltd, had been accessed without authorization. Cathay said late on Wednesday that in addition to 860,000 passport numbers and about 245,000 Hong Kong identity card numbers, the hackers accessed 403 expired credit card numbers and 27 credit card numbers with no card verification value (CVV). The company said it discovered suspicious activity on its network in March 2018 and investigations in early May confirmed that certain personal data had been accessed.

Duke shuts natgas plant due to Florence floods, coal ash leak feared

Duke shuts natgas plant due to Florence floods, coal ash leak feared(Reuters) – Duke Energy Corp said it shut down a North Carolina natural gas plant due to flooding as the deluge of water continued in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence, which has killed more than 40 people. Duke also said it cannot rule out the possibility that coal ash from another plant is flowing into nearby waters. Water breached the cooling lake dam at Duke’s 625-megawatt natural gas L.V. Sutton plant, causing the company to shut the plant.

Russia says space station leak may be sabotage

Russia says space station leak may be sabotageRussia launched checks Tuesday after its space chief said an air leak on the International Space Station last week could have been deliberate sabotage. Space agency chief Dmitry Rogozin said the hole detected Thursday in a Russian space craft docked at the orbiting station was caused by a drill and could have been done deliberately, either back on Earth or by astronauts in space. “There were several attempts at drilling,” Rogozin said late Monday in televised comments, adding that the drill appeared to have been held by a “wavering hand”.

International Space Station astronauts plug leak with finger and tape after being hit with debris

International Space Station astronauts plug leak with finger and tape after being hit with debrisThe International Space Station (ISS) has sprung a leak after being hit by space junk or a micrometeorite. Mission flight controllers in Houston and Moscow noticed a drop in pressure on Wednesday night and, after a search on Thursday, astronauts discovered a 2mm hole in the Russian section of the station. At that size it would have taken just 18 days for the crew to run out of air if they had not spotted the leak. The damage was found by closing hatches to each module one at a time, and European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Alexander Gerst initially plugged the gap with his finger, before using duct tape to cover the hole, preventing more air leaking into space. During a live feed from the ISS, Nasa's ground control were heard to comment: "Right now Alex has got his finger on that hole and I don't think that's the best remedy for it." The International Space Station’s cabin pressure is holding steady after a repair was made to address a leak on a Russian Soyuz spacecraft that had caused a minor reduction of pressure.

Space Station (@Space_Station) August 30, 2018 Later, the two Russian spacemen put sealant on a cloth and stuck it over the area, while their colleagues took photos for engineers on the ground. Flight controllers, meanwhile, monitored the cabin pressure while working to come up with a better long-term solution. Mission Control outside Moscow told the astronauts to let the sealant dry overnight and that more leak checks would be conducted on Friday. The makeshift repairs seem to have stabilised the situation, at least for now, officials said. Earlier, flight controllers tapped into the oxygen supply of a Russian cargo capsule to partially replenish the atmosphere in the station. The current crew of the ISS, Drew Feustel, Ricky Arnold, Serena Auñón, Alexander Gerst, Oleg Artemyev and Sergey Prokopyev Credit: Nasa A spokesman for the ESA said: “Last night International Space Station mission control noticed a reduction of pressure. This morning the crew gathered in the Russian segment of the Space Station before searching for the cause of the pressure change. “Working with mission control in Houston, USA, and Moscow, Russia, the astronauts localised a leak that appears to be in the Russian segment. The crew are working through troubleshooting and repair procedures. “The crew are healthy and safe with weeks of air left in the International Space Station reserves.” The damage is believed to have occurred when a micrometeorite or piece of space debris hit the station. Experts have warned for several years that the amount of junk orbiting the Earth, from defunct satellites and spacecraft poses a grave danger to the ISS. But this is the first time any significant damage has been caused. Experts have warned for several years about the dangers from space junk Since 1957, more than 5,250 launches have led to more than 23,000 tracked objects in orbit around Earth. But only about 1,200 are working satellites – the rest are debris and no longer serve any useful purpose. Many derelict craft have exploded or broken up, generating an estimated 750,000 pieces larger than 1 cm and a staggering 166 million larger than 1 mm spinning round the globe at 30,000 mph. Last year the ESA appealed to satellite operators and space agencies to clear up their retired crafts warning that pieces of space junk had "tremendous relative velocities, faster than a bullet, and can damage or destroy functioning space infrastructure". In March a prototype space "litter picker" designed by the University of Surrey was sent to the ISS. The tiny spaceship will perform two experiments to deploy and then capture a small ‘cubesat’ satellite, first using a net, and then using a harpoon. If it works it could be sent up to clear Earth’s orbit of dangerous debris. As well as Gerst, there are five other astronauts on board. Commander Drew Feustel, FlightEngineers Ricky Arnold and Serena Auñón-Chancellor of NASA,  and Oleg Artemyev and Sergey Prokopyev of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, gathered in the Russian segment of the station and, after extensive checks, reported that the leak appears to be on the Russian side of the orbital outpost. There is currently a Russian Progress cargo ship docked at the ISS and Roscosmos is recommending using oxygen from its tanks to repressurise the station. A spokesman for Nasa said: “Programme officials and flight controllers are continuing to monitor the situation as the crew works through its troubleshooting procedures.”
