"The US Air Force has certified the private company SpaceX to launch military and spy satellites.

A joint venture between Lockheed Martin and Boeing has had a monopoly on those launches since 2006.

Founded by entrepreneur Elon Musk, SpaceX has already won contracts with NASA to ferry cargo and crews to the International Space Station.

The approval from the US military followed two years of intensive reviews by the US Air Force."

" “Today is the first Memorial Day in 14 years that the United States is not engaged in a major ground war,” Obama said on Memorial Day, a US holiday for remembering those who died while serving in the country's armed forces.

He added that this Memorial Day is the first “since our war in Afghanistan came to an end,” but admitted that about 10,000 US troops remain on a mission to train and assist Afghan forces, even though “Afghanistan remains a very dangerous place.”

“And as so many families know, our troops continue to risk their lives for us,” Obama said.

Obama also said that the wars which America waged were “for democracy, the peace we’ve laid to preserve it.”

The statement by US president was met with strong criticism both from experts and social media users.

“What a joke. Of course the US is still at war,”wrote Brian Fernandes, a user on Facebook.

“The US still has troops in Afghanistan and plans to keep them there for years. And they have fomented wars in Ukraine, Africa, Syria, and now Yemen. The US is the most barbaric war-mongering nation on Earth,” added another, Richard Tina."

"At least a dozen people have been arrested in the US city of Cleveland during protests after an officer was cleared of all charges relating to the killing of an unarmed black couple.

Police appealed for calm after unrest continued into Saturday night.

Michael Brelo was cleared of voluntary manslaughter in the 2012 incident, when he fired 15 shots into their car.

A string of high-profile police killings of unarmed black people have sparked civil unrest in the US.

Mr Brelo was one of 13 officers to open fire on Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams during a high-speed car chase. But he was the only one to face charges because he climbed onto the bonnet of their vehicle and fired directly through the windscreen at the pair who were no longer deemed a threat."

"NASA's Dawn spacecraft has done it again. The prolific probe has captured its best image yet of the strange bright spots on the dwarf planet Ceres.

This photo is just the latest in a series of "best bright spot photos yet" as Dawn moves into a closer orbit around Ceres, the largest body in the main belt of asteroids between Mars and Jupiter. The new image shows off the reflective spots seen in one of Ceres' many craters by Dawn earlier in the probe's mission.

Scientists haven't yet pinpointed the cause of the bright spots, but NASA wants to know what you think they might be. The space agency has opened a voting pool, asking members of the public to decide what they think is causing the reflectivity. Voting choices include "ice," "volcano," "geyser" and "salt deposit," plus a catch-all "other" category.

(At the moment, "other" is winning the poll, perhaps because "alien colony" wasn't listed as one of the options.)"

At the middle of a crater, so maybe something leftover from whatever crashed there.

"European aerospace giant Airbus has warned it could reconsider its investments in Britain if the country leaves the European Union, as a debate over a planned referendum on the issue intensifies.

"I believe that it is vital for a company such as Airbus to come out and make a stand in favour of Britain remaining in the European Union," Paul Khan, the president of Airbus Group UK, said in a statement released by the company on Thursday.

"If after an exit from the European Union, economic conditions in Britain were less favourable for business than in other parts of Europe, or beyond; would Airbus reconsider future investment in the United Kingdom? Yes, absolutely," he said."

"A state of emergency has been declared in southern California in the US after two oil slicks, stretching nine miles, formed off the coast.

The spill near Santa Barbara was caused by a ruptured onshore pipeline.

Officials said the pipeline was running at full-capacity when it broke on Tuesday and about 105,000 gallons (400,000 litres) may have spilled.

While it has now been switched off, it is unclear how long the clean up will take."

"A new Texas law signed by Republican Governor Greg Abbott prohibits cities and towns from imposing local ordinances to prevent fracking and other potentially environmentally harmful oil and natural gas activities.

In debating the law, Texas lawmakers emphasized the state’s successful development of oil and gas for more than 100 years. The bill received a two-thirds majority vote in the Texas House and Senate. The law preempts municipal authorities from regulating oil and gas operations “within its boundaries or extraterritorial jurisdiction.” Local authorities can only pass ordinances and other measures to “regulate only surface activity” in ways that are “commercially reasonable” to oil and gas operations."

A computer security expert hacked into a plane's in-flight entertainment system and made it briefly fly sideways by telling one of the engines to go into climb mode.

Chris Roberts of One World Labs in Denver was flying on the plane at the time it turned sideways, according to an FBI search warrant filed in April.

The warrant was first publicized on Friday by APTN, a Canadian News Service.

Roberts told the FBI he had hacked into planes "15 to 20 times," according to court documents first made public on 15 May."

"The US drone fired two missiles targeting a militant compound, killing four rebels," a senior security official told AFP on condition of anonymity.

He said the identities of those killed in the strike were not immediately known."

"Jerry Nixon, a Microsoft development executive, said in a conference speech this week that Windows 10 would be the "last version" of the dominant desktop software.

His comments were echoed by Microsoft which said it would update Windows in future in an "ongoing manner".

Instead of new stand-alone versions, Windows 10 would be improved in regular instalments, the firm said."
