It's yet another signal that #Putin will be in the driver's seat when the two men hold meetings Monday. If #Trump is trying to tamp down expectations, his Russian counterpart has already exceeded them

Many analysts believe the mere existence of the #summit is a victory for #Russia, which is economically weakened and increasingly isolated. That Trump allegedly requested a one-on-one meeting with Putin — only translators will be present — only adds to that. As Masha Gessen put it in the New Yorker, Monday's events “will be a demonstration of power for Putin. He needs to deliver nothing else.”

But, she added, Putin may not have to struggle to get even more. Trump, for example, has seemed open to recognizing Russia's 2014 #annexation of #Crimea

It's almost certain that Trump will be far less ready to fend off such tactics than Putin will be to use them

Geometry Helps Solve the Mystery of Mars' Water

'...The Martian surface is crisscrossed with what looks like the scars of running water cut into its dusty dry surface. For years, researchers have argued over the source of this water, whether it was fed by rainwater falling from the sky or from ice melting beneath the surface. By taking a statistical approach to the features, a trio of researchers now argue for rivers of rainwater....'

Sound waves reveal diamond cache deep in Earth's interior - There may be more than a quadrillion tons of diamond hidden in the Earth's interior, according to a new study from MIT and other universities. But the new results are unlikely to set off a diamond rush. The scientists estimate the precious minerals are buried more than 100 miles below the surface, far deeper than any drilling expedition has ever reached.

"The Music of The Spheres"

The Victorian belief in some kind of harmonics controlling the universe (http://bit.ly/2JqIuQf) was backed by the writings and teachings of those who came before them and laid the foundation of science.

Then that belief was forgotten (or rejected) as science sought less romanticized notions to help it understand how the heavens worked.

Yet, here we are. On a Monday morning, somewhere on Terra listening mesmerized to the ghostly tunes of plasma flows between Saturn and one of its moons. Go here for a little more background to this: http://bit.ly/2JriOms and happy Monday!

In a breach of royal protocol, US President Donald Trump made the queen wait for a tea meeting while he also walked in front of her during the inspection of troops. Twitter took a field trip following Trump's 'insult'.

Just hours before the summit, Trump named the European Union, Russia and China as 'foes' to the United States. "I think we have a lot of foes," Trump told CBS News in an interview. Following this, Germany's foreign minister has said that Europe can no longer rely on the US after Donald Trump called the European Union a "foe".
