The First Photos from Space: 1946
Almost 14 months after the end of World War II and almost 11 years before Russia's Sputnik launch, suborbital rocketry began to be used in the United States in 1946, using captured German V-2 rockets. On October 24, 1946, American military engineers and scientists, launched a German V-2 rocket from the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico capturing the first photos of Earth from space. The rocket had no pointing capability and had very simple instrumentation. What started after World War II as a simple rocket experiment in 1946 led to the world of satellite technology; instant worldwide communications; geolocation; reconnaissance, and more.

Trump and the Republicans who support him are criminally deceitful.
It's too late for these particular malignant narcissists to change, but we can have hope for the future since their children are not swayed by elder corruption.

The way forward is to eject the corrupt at the election.
Make sure your voter registration is current, get out there on polling day and vote them out.

Trump pretends he's a "strong president" but he can't handle the exposure of his failure on twitter. He breaches the constitution to hide his words from his accusers. He also breaches the laws concerning the preservation of presidential communication by deleting his own tweets when they become embarrassing..

This too is a form of lying.. Apparently Trump's only "talent"..

From the article:

In May, Federal Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald ruled that President Trump was in violation of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution by blocking individuals from his Twitter account, @realDonaldTrump. In responding to the judge’s ruling, President Trump proceeded to unblock the seven accounts named in the original complaint from Knight First Amendment Institute.

In July, [the] Knight First Amendment Institute was still in the process of working to get the president to unblock all of the additional Twitter accounts which he had blocked, simply because they had criticized him. Even though the judge’s ruling pertained only to the 7 accounts in the original lawsuit, the ruling itself proclaimed the actions, by government officials blocking users on social media, to be unconstitutional.

NASA 60th: What’s Out There
In the past 60 years, NASA (1958-2018) has advanced our understanding of our solar system and beyond. We continually ask “What’s out there?” as we advance humankind and send spacecraft to explore.

Congress passed the National Aeronautics and Space Act, on July 16 and President Eisenhower signed it into law on July 29, 1958. NASA opened for business on Oct. 1, 1958.

Our history tells a story of exploration, innovation and discoveries.
The next 60 years, that story continues.

The Flourishing Business of Fake YouTube Views: Plays can be bought for pennies and delivered in bulk, inflating videos’ popularity and making the social media giant vulnerable to manipulation

The New York Times' Michael H. Keller investigates the booming business of fake YouTube views. Sellers are earning hundreds of thousands of dollars per year, and are able to fool YouTube's view verification process.

And it's a problem.

At one point in 2013, YouTube had as much traffic from bots masquerading as people as it did from real human visitors, according to the company. Some employees feared this would cause the fraud detection system to flip, classifying fake traffic as real and vice versa — a prospect engineers called “the Inversion.”

YouTube has gotten much better at detecting fake views since then:

YouTube would not disclose the number of fake views it blocked each day, but said its teams worked to keep them to less than 1 percent of the total. Still, with the platform registering billions of views a day, tens of millions of fake views could be making it through daily.

But for channel owners who purchase views hoping to promote their business or books, they find that there is little return on their investment. And, of course, those "viewers" don't watch more of the channel's videos beyond the views purchased.

Read the full article in +The New York Times to see how well it worked when theyd purchase views:
