10:05 pm
a coalition with corus who still some of the standby to talking tough on immigration will cost has declared victory and says he will fight for a new style of politics in austria berryman on. today the very two men and women in this country gave us a great mandate we must be aware of this opportunity women and men are putting their hopes into this movement we will use all our strength and all of our fight to bring about change in this country i invite you to go on this path with us there is much to do to establish a new style new culture of politics in this country. well the leader of the far right freedom party heinz christian struck says the results show all strings do want change. is it over to all of us this is the middle east peoples are the first this is important to wait for the official results or not to start speculating about coalitions but one thing i can tell you the freedom party remains true to themselves and to austrians and therefore it is crucial to introduce the direct
10:06 pm
democracy of switzerland here so let's get more now from david chase who's at the people's party headquarters in vienna hi there david so another meteoric rise in international politics. yes julie is that in fact a victory for the thirty one year old chancellor in waiting sebastien kurtz he only started what he calls his movement the new people's party back in may when he started breaking up the grand coalition and many people the time said that he didn't really have much of a chance of reaching the the chances position that it was a steep mountain to climb and he wasn't capable of it well he's proved them wrong he's also proved that the populous right wing the movement in europe still continues another in phatic victory for them if you like especially after what we saw in the german elections when for the first time the hard right got into the
10:07 pm
bundestag so a repeat if you like or rather an emphasis a reemphasis that this turbulence these popular movements will still continue to swirl around the european union and continue to cause trouble for the ambitions of chancellor angela merkel and the french president. to try and reform revive and reinvigorate the european union we don't know yet exactly because the account is still going on but it's very clear that the new people's party will remain in the lead whether it be the other parties which position they come to second or third doesn't really matter because it's very clear from the statements made by by curt's that he is sitting in the same camp as the hard right and that will be the coalition that will probably emerge over the next week julie and david what about
10:08 pm
politics more generally in austria walks kind of change are we going to see it was a result of what's happened today. but i think the most disturbing thing for the muslim community here which is. essentially been well integrated that many statements were made with this sort of islamophobia card was waved by both the extreme right and the center right of curses new movement and so we might see policies like. the immigration issue that they'll be no more integrations i'll put up the borders and the fences they'll refutes the quota system from brussels they'll join hungry in poland as a troublesome trio if you like from the physical movement also there's been many statements made about parallel societies being developed because of the private muslim kindergartens here in austria which they say were
10:09 pm
a breeding ground for radicalism and they created parallel societies that will change that perhaps they'll bring in new laws to enforce and mandate the teaching of austrian to those children at kindergarten age also one of the other policies was mentioned we might see coming out very quickly if the coalition goes ahead is the fact that when refugees do come in here they'll have to be five year period before they actually get the full social benefits because. both parties both the center right and hard right were saying they've got to start paying into a system before they get the benefits out that is a big change in attitudes here and it might make the muslim community feel very very vulnerable so on that front alone we can expect to see some turbulent times ahead but it's exactly it's a very very it's a very very different australia that's now emerged and an emphatic turn to the
10:10 pm

10:27 pm
a cease fire are the several on goods eight a very unwise twenty one ethnic armed group signed up to the peace. accord in twenty fifteen but many didn't participate including where. the most you crack down on the ranger has prompted accusations of ethnic cleansing against me in my eyes on me more than half a million have fled across the border and into bangladesh since the end of august fire officials in california say they've turned a corner with several of the wild far as they were battling which have killed at least forty people thousands of firefighters are working with special aircraft to tackle sixteen major blazes in areas north of san francisco one hundred thousand people have been displaced and five and a half thousand homes and buildings have been destroyed high winds are forcing further evacuations. here today state of california from january to last sunday had burned approximate two hundred forty three thousand acres from sunday to today two hundred fourteen thousand acres have burned statewide in sixteen major fires that's
10:28 pm
a pretty stunning figure that the fact that we burned almost as much in a week that we burned all year long so it's a it's a fire season in a week earlier this month an asteroid the size of a high was passed close to earth every day our planet's bombarded with more than one hundred tons of particles of dust and sun nasa studies also show that about once a year a car sized asteroid hits our atmosphere and scientists are working on a plan to try to push potentially deadly spacewalks off course jake aboard explains . space is not empty it's full of objects most of the ones that smack into earth are tiny and they burn up in our atmosphere but even small asteroids that get through have had devastating effects you may remember there was an impact over siberia three or four years ago that was caused by something that was only twenty meters in size or so in fact
10:29 pm
a private foundation is begin raising money to build a satellite the sentinel that can track smaller so called city killer asteroids these hit the earth about every hundred to two hundred years. so flip a coin that's the odds that somewhere on earth during your lifetime it's going to happen again nasa even has a department called planetary defense no really that's its name and the agency tracks asteroids larger than a kilometer across those big enough to end human civilization now the agency has greenlit the next phase of the dart project which will try to push a nearby asteroid called did a most b. off course the asteroid they were talking about is about the same size as the ship you see behind me just shy of two hundred meters long and i am roughly the same size as the projectile they're going to smack into it now in this context that seems ridiculous right i mean for me to just kick as hard as i can is going to have
10:30 pm
no effect at all on this ship but in the vast openness of space and the slippery in this of a vacuum smacking me into the bad at something like three times the speed of a bullet well you get the effect you want basically it would be using a spacecraft to ram the incoming object and change its orbit so it would not hit. so this this would be kind of a dress rehearsal for a first show we hope never to stage the test will take place in twenty twenty two here's hoping we won't need to knock anything off course in the mean time take aboard al-jazeera san francisco. from much more about the stories we're following on our website the address for that is w w w dot. dot com.
