  • Palestinian woman killed by Israeli settlers

    Pi zero: Not ready when reviewed: article needs improvement(s). Add article flag. (Using easy peer review


    {{tasks|news|re-review}}{{date|October 16, 2018}}
    Late on Friday, Aisha Mohammed Rabi, a 47 year-old Palestinian woman, was killed by Israeli settlers near a checkpoint in the northern {{w|West Bank}}. The Judean and Sumerian District police commenced an investigation on the matter and consider it a deliberate act.

    While driving with her husband, 52 year-old Aykube al-Rawbi, and two daughters, the family’s vehicle was struck with stones by Israeli settlers. Rabi suffered a head wound as a result of the attack and was later pronounced dead in a nearby hospital. Thousands of Palestinians attended her funeral in the village of {{w|Biddya}}.

    The attack is the most recent in a string of violent acts in the West Bank. In a stabbing attack, two people were wounded on Thursday at the Samaria regional brigade headquarters. Three days prior, two Israelis were killed in a factory in {{w|Barkan}}.

    A response by President {{w|Donald Trump}}’s special envoy stated “My [Trump’s] thoughts and prayers are with Mrs. Aysha al-Rabi’s 8 children and husband”. The statement marks a rare response by the administration, speaking on the death of a Palestinian victim, and it comes a day after {{w|United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process}} (UNSCO) {{w|Nickolay Mladenov}} condemned the killing.

  • U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren takes Trump up on DNA dare

    Darkfrog24:


    {{review}}
    {{United States}}
    {{date|October 16, 2018}} <!-- substitutes the date automatically; you don't need to modify the template -->

    Sunday, [[United States]] Senator [[Elizabeth Warren]] released the results of a DNA test showing that she has somewhere from 1/64<!--Boston Globe has a correction; scroll to bottom--> to 1/1024 {{w|Native American}} ancestry. She took the test in response to a dare from U.S. President [[Donald Trump]], who promised at a rally this July<!--Boston Globe--> to donate {{w|USD}}$1 million to a worthy cause if she could prove she had Native American genes, as she had once claimed.<!--ABC-->

    Warren today<!--Monday--> reminded Trump of his offer publicly on [[Twitter]]: "By the way, @realDonaldTrump: Remember saying on 7/5 that you'd give $1M to a charity of my choice if my DNA showed Native American ancestry? I remember – and here's the verdict. Please send the check to the National Indigenous Women's Resource Center:"<!--ABC-->

    Trump responded by telling the press "I didn't say that. You better read it again."<!--ABC--> He later added that he would only write the check if he could personally test Warren's DNA himself, adding<!--ABC--> "That will not be something I enjoy doing, either."<!--Saratogian and others-->

    Warren's DNA was collected in August and tested by {{w|Stanford University}} professor and genetics expert {{w|Carlos D. Bustamante}}, who {{w|blind study|did not know whose sample he was analyzing at the time}}. "While the vast majority of the individual's ancestry is European, the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor in the individual's pedigree, likely in the range of 6-10 generations ago," reads Bustamante's report.<!--ABC--> Bustamante himself told the press about a stretch of genes on Warren's 10th chromosome. "We found five segments, and that long segment was pretty significant. It tells us about one ancestor, and we can't rule out more ancestors. ... We are confident it is not an error."<!--Boston-->

    Not all parties were confident that the test itself was a good thing, however. Chuck Hoskin Jr., Secretary of State of the {{w|Cherokee Nation}} voiced his own concern: "Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong. [...] Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage."<!--ABC-->

    There has also been some question as to why Warren would seek and release this information now. "She is most clearly doing the things you do if you're running for president," Democratic strategist Steve Elmendorf told the press.<!--Saratogian-->

    From 1987 to 1995, Warren identified as Native American the {{w|University of Pennsylvania}} and again at {{w|Harvard University}}, where she served as a professor<!--Boston-->. This fact re-emerged during her 2012 campaign for the senate, drawing some criticism. President Trump has sarcastically referred to Senator Warren by the nickname "{{w|Pocahontas}}" after the famous {{w|Powhatan}} Indian chief's daughter. Warren has said that she identified as Native American during that part of her life because that was when her older female relatives were dying and she wanted to feel closer to her family history. Warren has said today<!--Monday--> via Twitter, "DNA & family history has nothing to do with tribal affiliation or citizenship, which is determined only – only – by Tribal Nations. I respect the distinction, & don't list myself as Native in the Senate."<!--ABC-->

    In the 1980s and 1990s, universities like Harvard and Penn were under pressure to show that they had people of color on staff.<!--Boston Globe--> Questions were also raised about whether Warren's purported ethnicity had an effect on her career; Warren recently released employment documents that seem to indicate it did not.

    Warren's family's history names a great-great-great grandmother called O.C. Sarah Smith. She is listed as white on period documents from that, but Warren's family maintained she was really a Native American.

    Searching DNA for Native American ancestry is difficult because the databases of known Native American DNA to which to compare samples are relatively small. Some tribal authorities have asked their members not to participate in genetic studies because of exploitation and misuse by scientists in the past. In one case, beginning in 1989, hundreds of {{w|Havasupai Indians}} provided blood samples to researchers from the [[University of Arizona]] who claimed they were performing a study on diabetes, from which many Havasupai suffered. The donors later learned that their samples were used not only for diabetes but for other disease studies and for migration studies that contradicted the tribe's traditional stories about its origin. This was without the donors' knowledge or permission, in violation of standard medical ethics. This led to the ''{{w|Havasupai Tribe vs. the Arizona Board of Regents}}'' lawsuit, which was settled in 2010.<!--AMA Journal of Ethics--> Warren's sample was tested against samples from [[Mexico]] and [[South America]] believed to have genetic markers in common with Native Americans from what is now the United States.

  • American student detained in Israel

    TheGracefulSlick: Fix


    {{tasks|news|re-review}}{{date|October 9, 2018}}

    Lara Alqasem, a 22 year-old {{w|University of Florida}} student, was detained upon arrival at {{w|Ben Gurion Airport}} and threatened with deportation on Tuesday, accused by the Israeli government of supporting a pro-Palestinian boycott against the state. Alqasem remains in custody as she appeals a deportation order.

    Alqasem arrived in Ben Gurion last week with a valid student visa to enroll in the {{w|Hebrew University of Jerusalem}}. While enrolled at the University of Florida, she studied human rights law. According to reports recounted by the {{w|New York Times}}, the student recently served as president to a small chapter of {{w|Students for Justice in Palestine}} (SJP). {{w|Israel}} enacted a law in 2017, intending to combat the boycott, divestment, and sanctions movement, granting the state the authority to deport individuals suspected of supporting the cause.

    An Israeli lawyer representing the student called the allegation “egregious”; Alqasem studied Hebrew in Florida and the Hebrew University asked to join her during the appeal process. “To be clear, we strongly oppose the boycott campaign against Israel, and Israel has to fight it,” Barak Medina, the director of Hebrew University, said, “But to deny entry to every person who has expressed support for a boycott is counterproductive”.

    Alqasem appealed to the Israeli Supreme after being rejected by a lower court.

  • First day of the new Welsh rail franchise

    Gryllida: rm plagiarism; ip; followed reviewer's remarks; re-submitted for review


    {{review}}{{date|October 16, 2018}}{{United Kingdom}}
    [[File:Arriva Mk 3 DVT 82306 at Cardiff Central.JPG|thumb|left|Drivuing Van Trailer (DVT) 82306 at Cardiff Central where it is formed into the afternoon Arriva Trains Wales service to Holyhead. 2018. {{Image source|Geof Sheppard}}]]
    [[File:ATW-153312-interior.jpg|thumb|left|The train interior of a train run by Arriva Trains Wales in 2006.{{Image source|Chris McKenna (en:User:Thryduulf)}}]]
    On Sunday, the new {{w|Wales|Welsh}} {{w|railways|rail}} operator, {{w|Transport for Wales}} (TfW), started running the franchise. The franchise included trains in Wales and parts of Western {{w|England}} ({{w|UK}}). During their first day they received many mixed reviews from passengers. In the reviews, users praised their support and mobile app and included negative remarks about the service experience.

    The new transport operator was being run by KeolisAmey, a French-Spanish joint venture. In the new arrangement, the Welsh government invested £5bn in the new project, and had oversight over it with a plan for improvements for several years forward.

    It's not been all plain sailing for TfW on their first day. They have received hundreds of complaints and comments from passengers on social media site Twitter. Some comments defended the train company by saying that they could not make too many improvements in the space of one night. The company has reportedly taken on board the comments.

    According to the chief executive of TfW, James Price, the changes to the railway would come "gradually". These would reportedly take the shape of new trains with increased capacity, more information at stations, as well as a thorough cleaning of stations. According to the plan published at the official website of the new operator, in the long term the changes would also include free wireless, new travel cards with 'pay as you go' fare plans, improvements to accessibility and websites. The plan included milestones til 2025.

    The BBC stated the previous operator, Arriva Trains Wales, had reportedly received nearly 30% more complaints in the last year compared with the previous year. In these complaints the commuters said they experienced overcrowded and late trains. Some passengers had been reportedly anticipating the arrival of the new train operating company for several months.

    The new operator was run by KeolisAmey. To address the overcrowding concerns directed at the previous operator, the
    Welsh government and KeolisAmey had developed a set of crowding targets for KeolisAmey follow, which the government would enforce by penalizing the operator financially in the case the targets are not met.

    KeolisAmey had first won the bid to run the franchise in May 2018. Arriva Trains Wales did not apply to the bid this year.

    Arriva Trains Wales had been previously running the rail franchise for 15 years, starting from 2003.

  • Manned Soyuz space mission aborts during launch

    Pi zero: Protected "Manned Soyuz space mission aborts during launch": standard precaution ([Edit=Allow only autoconfirmed users] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{date|October 12, 2018}}
    {{Space}}

    {{w|Soyuz programme|Soyuz}} {{w|Soyuz MS-10|MS-10}}, a manned {{w|Russia|Russian}} space mission bound for the [[International Space Station]] (ISS) for a six-month stay, was forced to abort by a booster rocket failure Thursday morning. Rescue teams successfully recovered both crew members, Russian cosmonaut {{w|Aleksey Ovchinin}} and United States astronaut {{w|Nick Hague}}, shortly after they landed safely in [[Kazakhstan]].

    [[File:Expedition 57 Launch (NHQ201810110004).jpg|thumb|left|Soyuz MS-10 shortly after liftoff on Thursday morning; the mission aborted minutes later. {{image credit|NASA/Bill Ingalls}}]]
    [[File:Expedition 57 Crew Returns to Baikonur (NHQ201810110007).jpg|thumb|left|Ovchinin and Hague reunite with their families after returning to Baikonur following a launch abort. {{image credit|NASA/Bill Ingalls}}]]
    About two minutes after launch from the {{w|Baikonur Cosmodrome}} in Kazakhstan, which took place at 8:40 {{w|UTC}} on Thursday, a problem arose with the rocket boosters attached to the {{w|Soyuz-FG|Soyuz rocket}}, during the process of booster separation. As the abort rocket system had been jettisoned a few moments earlier per normal launch procedure, the crew used the {{w|Soyuz MS|Soyuz capsule}}'s steering rockets to direct the spacecraft into a {{wikt|ballistic}} descent trajectory. During the descent, Ovchinin and Hague reportedly were subjected to forces of six to seven times Earth's gravity. Ovchinin and Hague were safely recovered along with the spacecraft's descent module about {{mi to km|12}} east of {{w|Jezkazgan}}, Kazakhstan, and {{mi to km|250}} from the launch site, approximately an hour and a half after lift-off. Both were taken to a hospital in {{w|Baikonur}}, Kazakhstan, for overnight observation as a precaution.

    The incident, which is only the third mishap involving a manned Soyuz rocket since 1975 and the first since 1983, neither of which resulted in a fatality, comes nearly a month and a half after ISS mission controllers detected an air leak aboard the {{w|Soyuz MS-09}} capsule presently docked at the ISS. Astronauts later found the leak to be the result of a drilled hole in the capsule's wall before repairing it. Shortly after Thursday's abort, the Russian government announced the formation of a state commission to investigate the launch failure.

    Director General of {{w|Roscosmos}} {{w|Dmitry Rogozin}} [[twitter|tweeted]], "To clarify the cause of the accident at the Soyuz-FG LV, by my decision, a state commission was formed [...] Telemetry is being studied. Rescue services work [sic] from the first second of the accident. The emergency rescue system of the Soyuz-MS ship worked normally. Crew rescued."

    Ovchinin and Hague were due to join the crew of {{w|Expedition 57}} aboard the ISS in {{w|low Earth orbit}}, which would have brought the current ISS crew from three to five. The next manned Soyuz launch to the ISS, {{w|Soyuz MS-11}}, was originally slated for December, though it is now unclear when that mission will be launched, pending the Russian investigation.

  • Former Interpol chief Meng Hongwei accused of taking bribes

    Gryllida: /* Sources */ corrected date (this is what the source says)


    {{tasks|news|re-review}}{{China}}
    {{date|October 10, 2018}} <!-- substitutes the date automatically; you don't need to modify the template -->
    [[File:Web Summit 2017 - Day 1 DG2 2442 (38207298752) crop.jpg|thumb|left|Meng Hongwei in 2017. {{Image source|Web Summit}}]]
    This Sunday, after disappearing for two weeks, former Interpol chief {{W|Meng Hongwei}} was announced to be under investigation in China by the National Supervisory Commission for corruption and bribes allegations. A few hours later, Interpol said it had received Mr. Meng’s resignation “with immediate effect.”

    His family had not heard from him since he left Interpol HQ in the French city of Lyon on 25 September with only a picture of a knife being sent that day (indicating possible danger) on WhatsApp. But after receiving a threatening phone call a week after on the 2 October, the latter alerted authorities on the 4 October with Interpol raising an inquiry to understand his whereabouts on 6 October. The family is now under police protection in France for fear of other threats.

    However in response on Thursday 11 October, foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang says he is not aware of reports relating to the threatening phone call, but did add that as she is the wife of Meng Hongwei who is under investigation, it would be "natural" for her to be contacted.

    After being elected President of Interpol in November 2016, analysts thought his election would allow China to project their image abroad more positively even though the position is mainly ceremonial. He has around 40 years of policing experience in China, with issues relating to drug control, border control and and also counter terrorism.

    This latest case of corruption comes right after Fan Bingbing, who disappeared for 3 months. Only to reappear during the National Week holiday in China with a heavy hitting fine of 883m yuan or $129m relating to tax evasion by reporting different documents on her earnings for her films.

    The anti-corruption campaign under Xi Jinping has been ongoing since he came to power in 2012, with both high profile cases and minor officials being arrested and jailed for various corruption charges.

    According to multiple news outlets including The Hill and the Guardian, New York state tax officials have launched an investigation into allegations made by the New York Times. On October 2ed the New York Times published an eight-page report that dove into tax documents obtained from the Trump organization. In the report by the NYT, they claimed that the president used "dubious tax schemes" to avoid paying taxes on what amounts to $413 million in today's dollars. It also accuses the president of helping his parents avoid taxes. A New York State Department of Taxation and Finance spokesman told The Hill, "The Tax Department is reviewing the allegations in the NYT article and is vigorously pursuing all appropriate avenues of investigation." In response to the allegations Tump's lawyer Charles Harder, stated, "The New York Times’s allegations of fraud and tax evasion are 100 percent false, and highly defamatory."

  • Sustainable grazing may have delayed Sahara desert onset by 500 years, study says

    A newly published scientific study suggests the most recent transformation of the {{w|Sahara}} into a desert, about 5500 years ago, was not accelerated by human over-use of the land and may instead have been delayed as much as 500 years by human land-use practices. The study, by scientists at {{w|University College London}} (UCL) and {{w|King's College London}}, was published in ''{{w|Nature Communications}}'' on Monday.

    The Sahara region, occupying most of northern {{w|Africa}}, alternates between green periods and desert periods due to {{w|precession}} of the Earth's orbit. Past scientific work has suggested the onset of the current desert period may have happened sooner because of human over-use of the land. The current study used a new model of climate and vegetation, including evidence of greenhouse gases in ice cores, to estimate when the desert onset ought to have occurred in the absence of human intervention, and archaeological evidence of human population in the Sahara over time.

    The study used increments of 500 years for their climate timeline, judging this degree of precision was available from their methods. According to their timeline, humans hunting-gathering and fishing populated the Sahara about 10.5 thousand years ago (kya), and humans herded cattle, sheep, and goats in the region from about 7.0 kya, with a human population boom in the region after 7.0 kya. The study showed the climate conditions were especially sensitive to potential collapse into desert from 7.0 to 6.0 kya, but the collapse, as evidenced by a crash of human population, didn't occur until 5.5 kya. The scientists concluded this was inconsistent with humans accelerating the onset of desert, and suggestive that human interaction with the environment delayed the onset. Lead author Chris Brierley, of UCL, noted, "Our study shows that increasing human population and sustainable {{wikt|pastoralism}} did not accelerate &mdash; and may even have delayed &mdash; the decline of the 'Green Sahara'&thinsp;".

    Had Daniel Barden survived the massacre at his elementary school, the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, that claimed the lives of 26 innocent people, he would have enjoyed this weekend, celebrating his thirteenth birthday with his family. Daniel was loved by everyone who knew him, and he touched their lives with his warmth, kindness, generosity, and his imaginative play. Daniel was outside some time before sunrise on Friday, December 14, 2012, and he admired the Christmas lights on a Christmas tree and said in his cute little boy voice, "Isn't it beautiful?" His father, Mark Barden, agreed it was beautiful and took a picture of it. Then, Daniel practiced playing "Jingle Bells" on the piano at home. When the bus came, Daniel got on the bus. Little did Mark know, this would be the final time he would see his beautiful boy alive. The day at Sandy Hook Elementary School started out like any other school day, but shortly after 9:30 a.m. EST, a gunman, later identified as Adam Lanza, walked into Daniel's first grade classroom and fatally shot him, along with many other first grade students. Lanza also killed six staff members at the school before taking his own life. A six-year-old girl stayed alive through the massacre by playing dead. Daniel is survived by his brother James, and his sister Natalie. Daniel had dreams of becoming a firefighter when he grows up, but now that unfortunately won't happen.

    Yesterday<!--On Friday--> morning near the international airport located on {{w|Weno}} island of {{w|Chuuk state}} of the {{w|Federated States of Micronesia}}, [[Oceania]] a passenger airplane of model {{w|Boeing}} {{w|Boeing 737|737}}-{{w|Boeing 737-800|800}} flown by the {{w|Air Niugini}} carrier crashed into sea as its pilot missed the runway. All 47 people on board &mdash; by differing reports, 36 passengers and eleven crew or 35 passengers and twelve crew &mdash; survived.

    The report by the international commercial aviation safety organization {{W|Jet Airliner Crash Data Evaluation Centre}} indicated the crash coincided with a sudden intensification of the weather conditions. timeanddate.com-supplied data from CustomWeather reported rain showers at 9:40 a.m. local time, following cloudy conditions at 8:50 a.m.

    The airplane reportedly landed around 9:30 a.m. local time, short of the runway by about 160 {{w|metre|m}} to 200 m (about 525 to 650 {{w|foot (unit)|feet}}), according to reports. Locals immediately began to rescue the passengers and crew on fishing boats. Officials arrived after about ten minutes, according to a witness quoted by ''{{w|The Guardian}}''.

    In an interview, a passenger alleged the crew started panicking and yelling, ''The Guardian'' reported. A first responder, Dr James Yaingeluo, also said the airplane crew were in panic. He said, "There was a little bit [of] chaos at first because everybody was really panicked and tried to get out of the plane [...] other than that we were doing as much as we can. Luckily there are no casualties."

    Yaingeluo said nine people were taken to hospital. Four people remained in hospital, one "seriously injured", according to reports recounted by {{w|ABC News (Australia)|ABC News}} on Friday evening.

    Flight 73 was coming from {{w|Pohnpei}} in the Federated States of Micronesia. Its destination was {{w|Port Moresby}} in {{w|Papua New Guinea}}, with a stop at the Chuuk state.

  • Mars may once had habitat suitable for subterranean life, say scientists

    Pi zero: "molar" as a unit is a noun, so "millimolars" is correct; of course "millimoles per liter" is also correct


    {{Space}}
    {{date|September 26, 2018}}

    In a new study announced on Monday and available in the current volume of ''{{w|Earth and Planetary Science Letters}}'', an international team led by scientists from {{w|Brown University}} in the [[United States]] said the planet [[Mars]] once had the right water and temperatures to host simple life forms &mdash; just not on its surface. Mars's rocky, subterranean layer once, for some hundreds of millions of years, had enough water and reductants to support some of the same kinds of microbial communities seen on Earth.

    "We showed, based on basic physics and chemistry calculations, that the ancient Martian subsurface likely had enough dissolved hydrogen to power a global subsurface biosphere," reported lead author and current Brown graduate student Jesse Tarnas.<!--Press release--> The paper does not claim life on Mars did exist but rather that conditions suitable for life are very likely to have lasted for an extended time. This habitable zone, located beneath Mars's then-frozen surface, would have reached several kilometers into Mars's surface, potentially protected by ice above.

    The study showed that, during Mars's {{w|Noachian period}} (4.1–3.7 billion years ago), {{w|radiolysis}}, the process by which radiation splits water molecules apart, produced enough hydrogen gas (H<sub>2</sub>) for microbial organisms to live on so long as they remained within the area just beneath the cryosphere, the SHZ (subcryospheric highly-fractured zone). The concentration of hydrogen in the groundwater could have ranged from about 35 to about 55 {{w|molar (unit)|millimoles per liter}} depending on whether ancient Mars was warm or cold, respectively, and higher if the subsurface medium also contained enough salt.<!--actual paper preview--> The researchers determined this by establishing three factors. First, they examined data from the gamma ray spectrometer aboard [[NASA]]'s {{w|Odyssey spacecraft}}, from which they inferred how much of various radioactive elements would have been present in Mars's crust during the Noachian, and therefore how much radiation would have been available to split water and so produce hydrogen. They then built on existing models of water flow on Mars to determine how much groundwater would have been present. Third, they used climate and geothermal modeling to determine how much of that water would have been in liquid form and at a suitable temperature for living things.

    In subterranean environments on Earth called {{w|subsurface lithotrophic microbial ecosystems}}, or SLiMEs, ecosystems sustain themselves not on plants that harness sunlight through photosynthesis but on microbes that harvest electrons from nearby molecules. Molecular hydrogen is an especially good electron donor.

    One of the study authors, Brown Professor John Mustard, is on the team designing the next {{w|Mars Rover}} mission, scheduled for 2020. He and Tarnas recommended the Rover examine the sites of meteorite crashes, which may have excavated rocks from this possibly habitable depth that may hold traces of ancient life.

  • NASA's TESS spacecraft reports its first exoplanet

    Darkfrog24: JUST realized that this comma is unnecessary.


    {{Space}}
    {{date|September 20, 2018}}

    In findings released to the public on Monday<!--Gizmodo--> through online site {{w|arXiv.org}}, astronomers reported they have already used data from the first photograph taken by [[National Aeronautics and Space Administration]]'s (NASA's) {{w|Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite}} (TESS) to locate an [[exoplanet]]. The planet, called {{w|Pi Mensae c}}, was spotted as it was transiting in front of its star, Pi Mensae ({{nowrap|HD 39091}}). The paper describing the findings was being submitted to ''AAS Letter'' but had yet to be published in full.

    "Here, we report on the discovery of a transiting planet around [Pi Mensae], exactly the type of planet TESS was designed to detect," states a portion of the paper available to the public.<!--Gizmodo, specifies the server-->

    Scientists say the planet is roughly twice the diameter of Earth but about four times as massive. Findings for Pi Mensae c indicate it may contain helium, methane, hydrogen, and water but is deemed unlikely to support life because it is so close to its star.

    TESS, which launched last April, created the light image over the course of 30 minutes on August 7, using four optical telescopes to photograph a small portion of the night sky. Its mission is slated to last two years and reports anticipate it could discover thousands of exoplanets.<!--Gizmodo-->

    This week in an unrelated project, researchers from the {{w|University of Florida}} spotted a planet circling a star named {{w|40 Eriadni A}} (HD 26965). In the fictional universe of ''[[Star Trek]]'', this star system is the home of the {{w|Vulcan (Star Trek)|Vulcans}} like {{w|Mr. Spock}}. The exoplanet, officially called HD 26965b, has been nicknamed "Vulcan" after this fictional planet.<!--NBC News-->
