Pentagon may send teams to find more U.S. remains in North Korea

World
July 27 (UPI) -- As the United States accepted what is presumed to be the remains of 55 U.S. service members killed during the Korean War, Defense Secretary James Mattis said Friday he would consider sending military teams to North Korea to search for the bodies of thousands of U.S. troops believed to be missing there. Mattis told reporters at the Pentagon on Friday the next step in searching for and bringing home the other remains could happen if relations between Pyongyang and Washington improve. "It's certainly something we're interested in exploring with the North Koreans," Mattis said. "We look at it as a first step of a restored process, so we do want to explore additional efforts to bring others home -- perhaps have our own teams go in." Joint U.S. and North Korean efforts to disc...

Tyson Fury says he has appointed snooker star Ronnie O'Sullivan to his support team ahead of his comeback fight next month.Heavyweight boxer Fury will get back in the ring at Manchester Arena on June 9, against an opponent still to be announced, after spending over two years out of action.

And Fury believes he is already benefiting from O'Sullivan's knowled...

European Space Agency teams with ICEYE Finnish start-up

Science
The European Space Agency is to work with Finnish start-up ICEYE on ways to exploit its novel radar satellites. ICEYE-X1 was launched in January - the first of multiple spacecraft that will go up in the coming years. About the size of a suitcase, these are the world's smallest synthetic aperture radar satellites and cost a fraction of traditional platforms. The Esa/ICEYE cooperation will focus on technology development and uses for the forthcoming constellation. It will see future satellites - in particular, their radar antenna design - being tested at the agency's technical centre (ESTEC) at Noordwijk, Netherlands. Esa's Earth observation headquarters (ESRIN) at Frascati, Italy, will also assist with calibration and validation of the ICEYE data. The agency is keen to see how radar images ...
Cleveland Browns' trades stunned NFL teams

Cleveland Browns' trades stunned NFL teams

Sports
From not being able to properly file paperwork to consummate a trade in October to making three trades in a matter of just hours, the Cleveland Browns left many in the NFL with their heads spinning. The same team that has won only one game in two years and flubbed finalizing a trade for Cincinnati quarterback AJ McCarron at the trade deadline pulled off three deals in a matter of a few hours on Friday. According to NBC Sports' Pro Football Talk, Friday's trades "stunned others who had been negotiating potential moves with the Browns." First, Cleveland acquired wide receiver Jarvis Landry from the Miami Dolphins for the relatively cheap price of two mid-round draft picks: one this year and one in 2019. Then, the Browns dealt the 65th pick in this year's draft to the Buffalo Bills for starti...
