The Sunday Journal Albuquerque, July 21, 2013 A5 Apollo 11 engine find confirmed A team led by founder and chief executive Jeff Bezos has confirmed that the engines it retrieved from the floor of the Atlantic Ocean belong to the Saturn V rocket that took the Apollo 11 astronauts to the moon 44 years ago. In March, they went 14,000 feet below the sea surface and came back with two of the Saturn V first-stage engines. On Friday, they announced that a conservationist had found the identification markings on one of the five engines — a serial number “2044.” A NASA spokesman said the engine’s identity was confirmed using data retrieved from NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center. The confirmation proves that the F-1 engine was used to carry Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, who took humanity’s first steps on the lunar surface on July 20, 1969. Michelin recalls 100,000 bad tires WASHINGTON — Michelin is recalling 100,000 tires after a retailer discovered that some had holes and quickly deflated. The recall affects certain sizes of Michelin’s LTX M/S 2, X Radial LT2 and Latitude Tour tires. The tires are typically used on light trucks and SUVs. The puncture, in the sidewall, was caused by machines used to handle the finished tires. There have been no reports of damage, death or injury. About 2,500 of the recalled tires may have the defect. House debates asteroid mission WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama’s proposed asteroid-lassoing mission, a key piece of NASA’s plan for human spaceflight in the next decade, is trying to make it through the House of Representatives without getting blown to smithereens. Republicans have taken aim at the mission, while also pushing for sequester-level NASA spending and sharp cuts in the agency’s Earth Science funding, much of which goes to research on climate change. The House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, voting on party lines, passed a NASA authorization bill Thursday that would specifically prohibit the agency from moving forward with the Asteroid Redirect Mission without first giving Congress more information about the plan. Superman unites with Batman SAN DIEGO — Superman is coming back, and he’ll have a caped co-star. “Man of Steel” director Zack Snyder made a surprise appearance at Comic-Con on Saturday to announce he is making another Superman film and it will include Batman — the first time the two superheroes will be united on the big screen. He didn’t reveal many details, saying the script is just being written. Snyder reimagined Superman in his June blockbuster “Man of Steel,” starring Henry Cavill and Amy Adams., which grossed more than $630 million worldwide. Warner Bros. confirmed the pairing and said that Cavill and Adams will appear in the sequel. Ongoing violence in Iraq kills 46 BAGHDAD — A coordinated wave of seven car bombs tore through bustling commercial streets Saturday night in Shiite areas of Baghdad, part of a relentless wave of violence that killed at least 46 inside and outside the capital. The car bombs detonated after the iftar meal that breaks the daily fast of the holy month of Ramadan. Bombings and other attacks have now killed more than 250 people since the start of Ramadan on July 10. Although there was no immediate claim of responsibility, coordinated bombings against Shiites are a favorite tactic of al-Qaida’s Iraq branch. 5 convicted over deadly shipwreck GROSSETO, Italy — Five employees of an Italian cruise company were convicted Saturday of manslaughter in the Costa Concordia shipwreck that killed 32 people, receiving sentences of less than three years that lawyers for victims and survivors criticized as too lenient. The guilty verdicts for multiple manslaughter and negligence were the first reached in the sinking of the cruise liner carrying more than 4,000 crew and passengers near the Tuscan shore in January 2012. The ship’s captain, the only remaining defendant, was denied a plea bargain and is being tried separately. He faces up to 20 years, if convicted of manslaughter, causing the shipwreck and abandoning the ship. 15 militants dead in new offensive PESHAWAR, Pakistan — The Pakistani army killed 15 militants in a new northwest offensive targeting militants who often strike a provincial capital from the mountainous region. The operation, called “Khyber II,” began Friday in the Zao Kharmatang area south of Peshawar. Four soldiers were also killed in the action against militants and the forces destroyed two militant hideouts. The area is located between Dara Adma Khel and the Bara area of the Khyber tribal area that borders Afghanistan. It was being used by militants to put pressure on the provincial capital. Govt. air strikes kill 5 in rebel town BEIRUT — Syrian government forces bombed a strategic rebel town in the country’s north for the third straight day Saturday, pounding it with airstrikes that killed at least five people, activists said. President Bashar Assad’s troops in recent weeks have seized the momentum in the civil war, now in its third year. Regime forces have been on the offensive against rebels on several fronts, including in the northern Idlib province along the border with Turkey. In Idlib, government forces this week besieged the town of Saraqeb, hitting it with rockets, tank fire and air raids. On Saturday, military aircraft dropped at least 15 makeshift bombs, known as barrel bombs, on the town. The bombs are made of hundreds of pounds of explosives stuffed into barrels. Meanwhile, airstrikes by fighter jets killed at least five people, including three children. — Journal wire reports AROUND THE NATION AROUND THE WORLD SNYDER * ALBUQUERQUE *RIORANCHO 50MILLIONAmericansFeelLike TheyAreHearingUnderWater! * AL BU QU ER QU E * RI O RA NC HO 505-384-6193 Ourmissionistohelp ourpatientsrestore theJoyofHearing!
