4:07 am
weekend since lebanon's mass protests began in october i demonstrators threw stones and projectiles at police officers fired water cannon rubber bullets and tear gas in response. to sunday's clashes brought the total of protesters injured to some $500.00 this weekend on a monday one with a lot of that violence only breeds violence at the end of the day after all these months the protesters just want to prove they exist as i don't blame protesters at all on how many matanya kept us. our most important events are independence of the judiciary and the pen and government of competent people accountability at the early elections and returning to to the kid out. anger at corruption and economic mismanagement have long fuelled the protests on
4:08 am
sunday demonstrators smashed windows at shops linked to a minister within the outgoing government i was god the protest movement helped topple that government in late october and efforts to forge a new one are still stalling. protesters say they fear their key demands are being ignored as top officials try to agree on a new cabinet i will air a space company space x. has simulated an emergency landing of its crew dragon capsule. catcher was jake did from a brothel which helped indians to mimic a launch failure at an altitude of 900 kilometers a rocket burst into flames as was planned meanwhile the capsule parachuted into the ocean completing the last test before space x. can stop flying nasa astronauts to the international space station. is very on
4:09 am
space no doubt until it is joining me in the studio for more on this and this by 6 exploded a rocket today but that was part of the plan yes it was typically when you think of giant fireballs and nasa i mean something horrible has gone wrong but that wasn't the case today what we saw today was space x. testing an emergency escape system which is basically designed to make sure that astronauts in the case of a catastrophic failure would still be allowed or able to safely parachute back to ground crew and survive any type of catastrophic failure failure rather during a launch and nasa officials and space x. officials also said that this has been a great test and that it actually clears the way to the 1st manned test flight of the dragon crew capsule which we could see as soon as april and that would of course be a huge step forward for space x. and also for nasa as well i mean the united states has been the premier's based traveling nation for decades now but a lot of people don't realize is that since 2011 since the space shuttle fleet was actually mothballed they haven't had the capability to send manned missions international space station on their own instead they've been forced to rely on old
4:10 am
russian rockets the soyuz rockets which have us body track record in recent recent years so this is a huge step forward true for nasa and space x. when it comes to returns manned space flight to the united states space x. is a proven kaga carrier they fly regularly and reliably and return the hard way it's a pretty neat trick but how much was this a crucial piece of the business model that i ticked off to well in terms of business model i mean it is a huge step forward because of the next step for them is basically getting those manned missions that something they haven't been able to do in the. yes but it's also a push forward from nasa because for years basically space flight has been the pervy of large international organizations and also governments private companies haven't played that much of a role now but nasa is attempting to change that model they're trying to basically set more in private businesses which is why they're turning to the likes of boeing in space x. they're hoping that they'll they'll be able to drive down costs and we've seen that
4:11 am
was space x. they've been able to reduce the cost of getting a kilogram of stuff into space by a factor of $10.00 it used to cost about $20000.00 now costs about $2000.00 so this is a huge step forward for space x. and that room but it's more than just that it's also about bringing public enthusiasm back to do to be more focused on the space program and you can say that enthusiasm support for the space program has really been basically falling off since we landed on the moon back in the 1960 s. and nasa hopes that by getting these manned missions back to the united states that the be able to increase that support that they need to keep funding these missions long term and actually space x. they're also focusing on that i mean elon musk their owner and founder has made no secret of the fact that his major goal is getting a viable mars colony set up by 2050 and the only way he's going to be able to do that is really by getting. that fire of public enthusiasm which actually drove us to win the moon back in the 1960 s. if he doesn't do that space x. and nasa is going to have the money to develop the technology they need so this is a this is a small step forward for nasa space x.
