Pence Speaks Out on the Moon
Vice President Mike Pence recently told CBS News the US is still “100% committed” to sending astronauts to the moon in 2024. Could we be headed for another Apollo mission…or maybe even the first steps toward a lunar mining colony?
It is America's destiny to be a leader on our adventure into the great unknown. @VP Pence says at @POTUS' direction, "America will return to the Moon within the next five years. And the next man and first woman will be American astronauts"

The plan is to establish a long-term presence on the moon. This will act as a stepping stone to getting piloted flights to Mars. How interesting and exciting to see the US at the forefront of the scientific community once again.

Although it wasn’t immediately clear what Venezuela intended with the bizarre behavior, the USC isn’t mincing words about this serious transgression. They claim it’s proof Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has a total lack of respect for international laws.
FaceApp Presents New Dangers
If you’ve used any type of social media in the past week, you’ve probably heard that the Russians may be attempting to steal information yet again. This time, it stems not from politicians, but from a smartphone and tablet app.
FaceApp allows users to upload pictures from a phone. With a click of a button, advanced facial aging algorithms age progress the images to present the user with an older version of themselves (why anyone would want to look older…well, we just don’t know).
