Yikes! Oxygen supply fails in Russian module on ISS. Crew ok

The International Space Station is all about redundancy. There's more than one toilet on the ISS, and there's more than one oxygen supply system that provides precious air for the crew in orbit. It's still not great when one of those systems fails.

An oxygen supply system in the Russian-built Zvezda module of the station failed Wednesday, according to an AFP report. It's not the only oxygen generation system on board, so the crew of six -- which includes three new arrivals from NASA and Roscosmos -- is not in danger.

A Roscosmos spokesperson told AFP that the crew will work to repair the issue this week.

Zvezda has been in orbit for 20 years. NASA describes it as "the early cornerstone for the first human habitation of the station." It contains living quarters, flight systems and life support systems.


it's retweeting muslim extremists, QAnon trolls, fake christians, multiple Rand Paul tweets and people who say they voted for him

One MAJOR thing I noticed watching Biden for 90 min

I do NOT feel anxious. I do NOT feel angry.

I feel calm.
I feel reassured.

BREAKING: Elliott Broidy is set to plead guilty to a conspiracy charge during his arraignment Oct

(Bloomberg) -- Elliott Broidy, a former top political fundraiser for President Donald Trump and the Republican Party, plans to plead guilty to participating in an illegal foreign lobbying scheme and cooperate with investigators in the matter, according to a person familiar with the situation. Broidy was charged on Oct. 8 with illegally lobbying the Trump administration to stop investigating the embezzlement scandal at the 1MDB Malaysian state investment fund. Jho Low, a Malaysian fugitive who was charged as the mastermind of the 1MDB fraud, initially paid Broidy $6 million to lobby the U.S. Justice Department to stop its investigation and promised an additional $75 million if the lobbying succeeded, prosecutors said.

Two other people involved in the scheme have already pleaded guilty: George Higginbotham, a former Justice Department official, and Nickie Mali Lum Davis, a Broidy business associate.

Broidy is scheduled to be arraigned at a virtual hearing in Washington on Oct. 20.

Lamest, biggest self-own. Ever.

I tweeted a link to the NYP story right after it dropped yesterday morning. I immediately reached out to the Biden campaign to see if they had any answer. I wish i had given the story a closer read before tweeting it. @twitter suspended me

There is one HUGE difference in the polling for Biden in 2020 vs Clinton in 2016

Biden has been at or above 50% for some time.

SO, even if all "undecideds" broke for trump (and ignored the third parties), trump would still not be able to catch up!

Biden is polling well above where Clinton was and has been for much of the year.

So *this* is where all the trump/gop campaign money is going to! Fighting voter rights!

Trump, RNC, NRSC, NRCC and the NC GOP have all filed for an emergency stay of last night's federal court decision in North Carolina pending appeal.

Pro tip--When one side needs an emergency stay pending their appeal, they didn't win.

this is where all the campaign money is being sunk into

Well, that and Parscale's garage
