Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, November 13) – Senator Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa has withdrawn his candidacy for president in the 2022 elections.

Dela Rosa told CNN Philippines on Saturday it was the decision of his political party, Partido Demokratiko Pilipino–Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban), for him to withdraw his candidacy for president.

“I'm a good soldier. I will just follow party decisions. So, desisyon po ng partido na mag-withdraw ako. Kaya ako nag-withdraw (So, it is the decision of the party for me to withdraw. That’s why I withdrew),” said Dela Rosa.

The nation’s former top cop filed his withdrawal hours after a representative of Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio submitted the substitution papers that formalized the presidential daughter’s vice presidential run in next May's polls.

THE Commission on Elections (Comelec) upheld its five-day extension for presidential aspirant Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos to respond to a disqualification case that was filed against him.

In a three-page ruling, the Comelec Second Division, chaired by Presiding Commissioner Socorro B. Inting, denied the motion for reconsideration filed by petitioners on its ruling granting Marcos the extension.

The petitioners Fr. Christian Buenafe, co-chairman of Task Force Detainees of the Philippines; Fides Lim of the political prisoners' group Kapatid; Ma. Edeliza Hernandez, executive director of the Medical Action Group; Celia Lagman Sevilla, Roland Vivaldi, and Josephine Lascano, the group that filed the first disqualification case against Marcos, said the period to file a verified answer lapsed on November 16.

In denying the group's motion, the ruling said that it was within the Comelec's authority to grant the extension beyond the deadline.

Blue Origin’s next suborbital spaceflight includes two special guests
By Trevor Mogg
November 23, 2021

https://www.digitaltrends.com/news/blue-origins-next-space-flight-includes-two-special-guests/

Blue Origin is gearing up for its third crewed flight to the edge of space, with the mission set to carry six people — two more than its previous crewed missions.

Scheduled for Thursday, December 9, the crew of Blue Origin’s next suborbital space flight will include a couple of special guests, namely Laura Shepard Churchley, the eldest daughter of Alan Shepard, who was the first American to fly to space; and Good Morning America co-anchor Michael Strahan.

Joining them aboard the capsule will be space industry executive and philanthropist Dylan Taylor, investor Evan Dick, and Bess Ventures founder Lane Bess and his son Cameron, with Lane and Cameron set to become the first parent-child pair to fly together to space.

Shepard Churchley and Strahan are described by Blue Origin as “honorary guests,” while the others appear to be paying customers, though how much they’ve forked out for the trip of a lifetime hasn’t been revealed.

The U.S. Air Force Is Buying New F-15s After All
The F-15X will complement the F-22 and F-35 in tomorrow's aerial battlefields.

BY KYLE MIZOKAMI

https://www.popularmechanics.com/military/aviation/a26413900/air-force-buying-new-f-15/

The U.S. Air Force will go ahead and buy brand-new F-15s even as it purchases large numbers of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. Updated with the latest technology, the F-15X can carry nearly two dozen air-to-air missiles and will likely work together with stealth jets to take on fleets of enemy fighters.

An article at Bloomberg has revealed that the USAF will request eight F-15X fighters in its budget. The service plans to buy 80 fighters over five years. That's enough to fit out a wing of 72 aircraft, divided into three squadrons of 24 planes each, with eight spares. That's just the five-year projection, though, and the service may buy additional fighters beyond 2025.

The F-15X will come in two versions, a single-seat F-15CX and a twin-seat F-15EX. According to Aviation Week & Space Technology, other than crew size the two jets will be identical.

< Edited >

F-15X is a thoroughly modern update of the F-15 Eagle air superiority fighter first introduced in the 1970s. Most of the updates it has are already flying in F-15s produced for other countries, with research and development already paid for by nations such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar. These include strengthened airframes for increased maneuverability and airframe life span, giving the advanced fighter an even greater dogfighting capability over the original F-15 and an impressive airframe life span of 20,000 hours.

The F-15X will also include large flat-panel displays for displaying aircraft information, conformal fuel tanks to give it a longer range, a digital fly-by-wire control system, a new APG-82 radar, and the Eagle Passive Active Warning Survivability System (EPAWSS) for protection from air-to-air missiles.

One thing the F-15X doesn’t have is stealth capability, at least to the extent of new or new-ish aircraft such as the F-22 Raptor and F-35. The F-15 airframe was designed before stealth became a thing, and there’s not much, other than using radar-absorbing coatings, that can be done to retrofit a reduced radar signature. So, instead of being hard to spot, the F-15X will be armed to the teeth. The plane will use new AMBER missile racks to nearly triple the aircraft’s air-to-air missile capability, from 8 to 22.

New Module Heads to Station During Spacewalk Preps and Science Today
Mark Garcia
Posted on November 24, 2021

https://blogs.nasa.gov/spacestation/2021/11/24/new-module-heads-to-station-during-spacewalk-preps-and-science-today/

Russia’s newest docking port, the Prichal module, launched today and will arrive on Friday at the International Space Station. Meanwhile, the seven-member Expedition 66 crew is continuing spacewalk preparations while keeping up with ongoing advanced space research.

A Russian Progress spacecraft launched from Kazakhstan at 8:06 a.m. EST (6:06 p.m. Baikonur time) today carrying the five-ton Prichal docking module into Earth orbit. The new module, controlled by the Progress vehicle, will automatically dock to the Nauka multipurpose laboratory module on Friday at 10:26 a.m. Once attached Prichal will provide five additional docking ports and fuel transfer capability to the orbiting lab.

Roscosmos cosmonauts Anton Shkaplerov and Pyotr Dubrov will be on duty Friday monitoring Prichal’s arrival. Friday’s approach and docking will be covered live on NASA TV, the NASA app, and the agency’s website beginning at 9:30 a.m.

Two NASA astronauts have begun focusing on an upcoming spacewalk planned for Nov. 30. Flight Engineers Thomas Marshburn and Kayla Barron checked out spacewalking tools and emergency jetpacks today they would use in the unlikely event they became untethered from the station. The duo is timelined to spend about six-and-a-half hours replacing a faulty antenna system on the Port-1 truss segment.

Flight Engineers Raja Chari of NASA and Matthias Maurer of ESA (European Space Agency) focused on human research strapping sensors to themselves for a pair of exercise studies. Chari performed a fitness test on an exercise cycle to measure his aerobic capacity in space. Maurer then took his turn on the exercise bike wearing a mask and a heart monitor to demonstrate cardio-pulmonary diagnosis aboard the orbiting lab. NASA Flight Engineer Mark Vande Hei serviced the COLBERT treadmill inspecting and cleaning its components.

NASA and SpaceX are targeting Tuesday, Dec. 21, at 5:06 a.m. EST for launch of the company’s 24th commercial resupply services mission to the International Space Station from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Dragon will bring food, supplies, and scientific investigations to the orbiting crew, including a protein crystal growth study that could improve the delivery of cancer treatment drugs and a handheld bioprinter that could one day be used to print tissue directly onto wounds to faster healing.

Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) Mission

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKRf6-NcMqI

SpaceX is targeting Tuesday, November 23 for Falcon 9’s launch of NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) mission from Space Launch Complex 4 East (SLC-4E) at Vandenberg Space Force Base in California. The instantaneous launch window is at 10:21 p.m. PST (6:21 UTC on November 24), and a backup opportunity is available on Wednesday, November 24 at 10:20 p.m. PST (6:20 UTC on November 25).
 
This will be the third flight for this Falcon 9’s first stage booster, which previously supported launch of Sentinel-6A and a Starlink mission. Following stage separation, Falcon 9’s first stage will land on the Of Course I Still Love You droneship, which will be located in the Pacific Ocean.
 
DART is humanity’s first planetary defense test mission to see if intentionally crashing a spacecraft into an asteroid is an effective way to change its course, should an Earth-threatening asteroid be discovered in the future.
