China’s space station supports experimentsBy GLOBAL TIMEShome/News/World/China’s space station supports experimentsScience facilities on China’s planned Tiangong space station could support hundreds of space research projects after it’s completed in 2022. Sixteen experiment racks will be installed in the core module and two lab capsules of the space station, and an extravehicular experiment platform will be built. Although the racks are smaller with about half the weight of the racks on the International Space Station, they could have similar and even better performance. “We believe more important scientific results can be achieved on China’s space station,” said Wang. The space station will carry a hydrogen clock, a cold atomic clock and an optical clock to establish a high-precision time and frequency system.

Duterte and Locsin are right: Gear up for battleBy RICARDO SALUDOPRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte and Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. are right.

If there are intruders, anti-ship missiles can force or take them out. By contrast, when Beijing declared an air defense identification zone over the Senkakus in 2013, American B-52 bombers instantly challenged the ADIZ. Let’s see if the Philippine Air Force would get the patrol planes, anti-ship missiles, and air defense systems we need.

But it is an entirely different situation when communicators – whether in private or public media – deliberately and maliciously package and propagate lies. • PCOO is no model of honest reportingWE hesitate to accept the matrix as a diagram of a plot as claimed by Panelo, because he offered no evidence of falsity and criminal complicity.

With Clark International Airport closed, this means so many domestic and international flights using Clark International had to be cancelled. Hopefully the Manila Airport Authority should look forward to what the future holds if more earthquakes would disturb our main airports. Years ago, I met and interviewed Avinash Tholons when he came to Cebu City because of the remarkable growth we were having. I was taken aback by this recent news Tholons Survey had published on Cebu City. This is not good news for Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña who is seeking reelection next month.

MANILA, Philippines — Rotational blackouts were implemented in parts of Luzon and Metro Manila yesterday as several power plants remained on shutdown after the magnitude 6.1 earthquake that hit the island last Monday. The two power plants affected by the earthquake are two 345-MW units of GN Power Mariveles Coal Power Plant and two 150-MW units of SMC Consolidated Power Corp. Limay Coal plants. The SMC power plants are expected to resume operations today or tomorrow for Unit 2 and tomorrow or Saturday for Unit 1. The senator said once power supply is short, more expensive power will be procured from the Wholesale Electricity Spot Market. The senator expressed belief the unscheduled shutdowns could have been easily prevented if the operators of power plants were not remiss in maintaining them and were not scrimping on expenses.
