The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) is a secret court that hears warrant requests from America’s spy agencies when they want to wiretap people in the USA.

Sorry, there's no excuse to keeping your advanced spying techniques secret. Stingray surveillance is invasive and irresponsible.

It is time to demand accountability and transparency from law enforcement authorities who use them to suck up sensitive, personal information from our cell phones: stopstingrays.org

A body of experimental evidence has been building to show that the EmDrive actually works. Finally, some theory is starting to be developed to explain the physical data. Exciting!
The same theory that explains the puzzling fly-by anomalies could also explain how the controversial EmDrive produces thrust.

“If these invasive technologies are not in use, then these agencies should have no problem confirming that their surveillance activities remain within the confines of the law. If these StingRay technologies are being used in Canada however, the public has a right to know” - our Laura Tribe for The Toronto Star​

It’s time to hold law enforcement agencies accountable and demand transparency, add your voice at: stopstingrays.org
The commissioner has opened an investigation into the use of International Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI) catchers, otherwise known as stingrays, by law enforcement.

Kepler is Back in Business Collecting Science Data for the K2 Mission!

The Kepler spacecraft has been recovered and, as of 8:30 a.m. PDT Friday, it is back on the job as the K2 mission searching for exoplanets—planets beyond our solar system.

The team began the process of returning the spacecraft to science late on Tuesday. The process involved a succession of steps over the course of the next two days. The pointing tables and science targets—instructions that tell the spacecraft where to look and at what—were reloaded and confirmed, onboard logs and counters were reset and a new command sequence was created, tested and uploaded to account for the late start of the campaign. The spacecraft is now ready for science operations, officially starting K2's new gravitational microlensing campaign, known as Campaign 9 or C9.

During NASA's Deep Space Network (DSN) contact with the spacecraft yesterday, flight operations engineers at Ball Aerospace and the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) at the University of Colorado, both located in Boulder, turned the spacecraft to point the telescope towards the center of the Milky Way galaxy to start collecting data for C9.
