NASA Robot Detects Complex Organic Matter on Mars in ‘Significant Breakthrough’

    The compounds drilled from the planet’s Gale Crater are the most diverse array ever found, experts claim.

    A NASA robot has detected complex organic matter on Mars in a “significant breakthrough” in the hunt for life on the planet. The unmanned Curiosity rover discovered the matter from 3.5 billion-year-old rocks on the surface of the Red Planet, scientists have revealed.

    The samples were drilled from the base of Mount Sharp, inside a basin called Gale Crater. The discovery is not a direct evidence of life. But the compounds are the most diverse array ever found on the surface of the planet since the robotic vehicle landed six years ago, experts claim.

    Curiosity has also found increasing evidence for seasonal variation of methane on Mars – indicating the source of the gas is likely the planet itself, or possibly its subsurface water. “This is a significant breakthrough because it means there are organic materials preserved in some of the harshest environments on Mars,” said lead author of one of two studies in Science, Jennifer Eigenbrode.

    “And maybe we can find something better preserved than that, that has signatures of life in it,” added Ms Eigenbrode, an astrobiologist at NASA Goddard Spaceflight Center.

Organic Matter Found on Mars, NASA Reveals in Major Announcement

  • Organic Matter Found on Mars, NASA Reveals in Major Announcement
    by ANDREW GRIFFIN, https://www.independent.co.uk/
    Latest research could suggest life might once have been present on the Red Planet – or is still there

    Nasa’s Curiosity rover has found organic matter preserved on Mars, in a discovery that could suggest it was once home to life. The molecules represent an intriguing suggestion that Mars has been far more alive than we ever knew. While the discovery does not shed light on whether Mars was once home to alien life, and whether it could still be, the findings could be the result of ancient life there. “The chances of being able to find signs of ancient life with future missions, if life ever was present, just went up,” said Curiosity’s project scientist, Ashwin Vasavada of Nasa’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.

    Experts say that the findings should propel us to look for conclusive evidence of alien life living on the planet. “With these new findings, Mars is telling us to stay the course and keep searching for evidence of life,” said Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for the Science Mission Directorate at Nasa headquarters in Washington. “I’m confident that our ongoing and planned missions will unlock even more breathtaking discoveries on the Red Planet.”

    The new announcement is actually the result of two new studies that reveal vast detail about how methane exists on the planet, as well as the unexpected organic molecules that are preserved in its soil. And one team has made a significant breakthrough in our attempt to understand the ancient organic matter on Mars, which could help us discover whether the world was once habitable and what happened to it in the billions of years since.

Eurozone SHOWDOWN: Macron to Push Merkel to Agree ‘Ambitious’ Reform

  • Eurozone SHOWDOWN: Macron to Push Merkel to Agree ‘Ambitious’ Reform
    by ROMINA MCGUINNESS, https://www.express.co.uk/
    FRENCH President Emmanuel Macron wants a more “ambitious” reform of the eurozone than the one outlined by Angela Merkel, and will urge the German Chancellor to make more concessions on a eurozone budget and banking union in the coming weeks, a French presidential source said.

    While the German leader backs the French centrist’s overarching EU vision, her response to his eurozone and banking union reform plans has been more tentative. Speaking on condition of anonymity, the source said that while the Chancellor was “aligning herself with French ideas,” including the idea of a new European sovereignty, “France and Germany have to work together in the coming weeks to reach a more ambitious accord on the banking union and a fiscal capacity for the eurozone”.

    The Elysée Palace source said: “There is a rapprochement on eurozone reform, notably on the idea of an investment budget. The chancellor made clear that the current eurozone instruments are insufficient.”

  • Nomi Prins: Central Bank-Inspired “Major Credit Squeeze” Will Trigger Next Crisis
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    For all the talk about tapering (in both the US and Europe), the Federal Reserve has actually done remarkably little to reduce its balance sheet. And in an interview with Macrovoices Erik Townsend, former Wall Street executive Nomi Prins expands upon some of the same themes she covered in her latest book, “Collu$ion: How Central Bankers Rigged the World”.

    As Prins reminds us early on, the Fed and other central banks have expanded their balance sheets by more than $20 trillion, and despite all the chatter about withdrawing stimulus and letting its balance sheet roll off, the Fed’s balance sheet has only shrunk from $4.5 trillion to $4.3 trillion.

‘Mars Could Have Supported Life’: NASA Suggests Red Planet Was Habitable

  • NASANever A Straight Answer!
  • ‘Mars Could Have Supported Life’: NASA Suggests Red Planet Was Habitable
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – The best evidence that life once existed on Mars has been revealed in 3-billion-year old organic matter in rocks and cyclical emissions of methane from the planet’s surface, NASA scientists disclosed on Thursday in a press conference explaining recent discoveries by the Curiosity rover.

    “What the organic detections in the rock do is to add to the story of habitability. It tells us that this ancient environment on Mars could have supported life,” NASA biochemist Jennifer Eigenbrode said. “Everything that was needed to support life was there. But it doesn’t tell us that life was there.”

    Organic molecules serve as the building blocks of life while most of the methane in Earth’s atmospheric comes from animal and plant life, scientists explained.

    “The chances of being able to find signs of ancient life with future missions, if life ever was present, just went up,” said Curiosity’s project scientist Ashwin Vasavada said.

    Scientists, however, noted that the evidence of ancient life is far from conclusive because methane — released from the planet’s surface — and organic molecules can also be created from chemical reactions without life being present.

    The Curiosity rover, a mobile chemistry lab about the size of a car, has been exploring Mars Gale Crater and surrounding mountains for nearly six years. The crater is believed to have once been covered with water.

Iran Nuclear Deal Countries Meet in Tehran

  • Iran Nuclear Deal Countries Meet in Tehran
    by Agence France-Presse, https://www.thenational.ae/
    Closed-door encounter follows Iran announcement to boost uranium enrichment capacity

    Experts from the countries still in the Iran nuclear deal were holding a scheduled meeting in Tehran on Thursday, with the accord hanging in the balance after the United States withdrew.

    The closed-door encounter involving representatives from Iran, Britain, China France, Germany and Russia as well as the European Union had long been on the cards, but comes as tensions rise after Tehran announced a plan to boost uranium enrichment capacity.

    “It is one of the technical meetings that are held regularly,” a diplomatic source said, adding that it would focus on economic issues.

    The remaining parties to the landmark 2015 deal are scrambling to save the agreement after US President Donald Trump abandoned it last month.

    The US move to reimpose sanctions – lifted under the accord that aims to ensure Tehran will not develop a nuclear bomb – has meant many investors who returned to the country have started to wind down operations.

    Iran raised pressure on European diplomats seeking to rescue the pact by announcing on Tuesday it has launched a plan to boost uranium enrichment capacity with new centrifuges. The EU said a first assessment indicated the new steps did not constitute a violation of the agreement, but warned they did “not contribute to building confidence”.

    French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian warned Iran on Wednesday that its plan to increase its uranium enrichment capacity took it close to a “red line”. Iran insists its nuclear programme is for civilian uses only, but opponents in the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia accuse it of seeking to build an atomic bomb.

German FM Refuses to ‘Hush Up’ EU-US Tensions as War of Words Heats Up

  • German FM Refuses to ‘Hush Up’ EU-US Tensions as War of Words Heats Up
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    Ahead of the G7 summit in Canada, Heiko Maas has lambasted the US President and his administration over their recent political decisions, which harm Europe. His remarks came soon after France’s President Macron took aim at Trump, mentioning the possible isolation of the US.

    German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, who represents the Social Democrats in the government, has told the newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung that there are differences between Berlin and Washington, and that his country “can not hush up.” He pointed at Donald Trump’s one-sided withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement, the Iran deal and imposing import tariffs on steel and aluminum, which Europe vigorously opposed, fearing negative consequences. According to Maas, the US president “consciously took into account the immediate impact on Europe, following his decisions.”

    Maas specifically pointed at the pulling out from the Iran deal, saying it was particularly critical for international relations and reliability. “We were used to being able to rely on agreements, and this has changed fundamentally,” he told the media.

    Maas stressed that Trump’s policy brings far-reaching changes, as he’s turned down the multilateral rules-of-play, pursuing American interests with one-sided actions.  Although the Foreign Minister assured that the US “remains our closest partner outside Europe,” he stated that the European Union should consider finding new partners.  The key principle in this mission would be to secure an “alliance with those who want to preserve the multilateral world order.” He pointed to Canada as well as countries in Africa, Latin America and Asia as potential partners.

Macron to Trump: Don’t Push Iran to Leave Nuclear Deal

  • Macron to Trump: Don’t Push Iran to Leave Nuclear Deal
    by http://www.presstv.com/
    French President Emmanuel Macron has called on the US not to push Iran to leave the 2015 nuclear deal as he urged world leaders to stand up to the threat of a new US “hegemony”.

    “You’re not comfortable with an agreement signed by your predecessor, maybe just because it was signed by your predecessor, but don’t stop others from respecting it and don’t push Iran to leave,” he said on Thursday. The French president was speaking alongside the Canadian prime minister, Justin Trudeau, who is hosting the G7 summit in Quebec.

    The summit is held amid sharp disagreements between the US president and the six other leaders of industrialized nations over trade, climate change and the nuclear deal with Iran.

    Macron called on Germany, the UK, Italy, Japan, and Canada, the rest of the body’s membership, to withstand a potential US slide towards “further isolationism and crude hegemony.” “I believe in cooperation and multilateralism because I will resist hegemony with all my strength. Hegemony is might makes right. Hegemony is the end of the rule of law,” he asserted.

    The remarks came after US President Donald Trump imposed tariffs on Washington’s allies in what, Macron called, was beating the drums of trade war with them. “You can’t, among allies in this international context, start a trade war. For me it’s a question of principle,” the French head of state said.

    “The six other countries of the G7 represent a market which is bigger than the American market,” he added as he was encouraging the group not to compose the summit’s final statement in a way that would please the US. “Instead of tailoring the statement to Washington’s expectations, the allies had to come up with one that enshrines common values,” Macron said.

    For his part, Canadian premier Trudeau described the US tariffs as “unilateral and illegal” and a national security pretext, which Trump has offered for imposing them, as “risible.” He added that Trump’s unacceptable actions are going to harm his own citizens. “It is American jobs that are going to be lost because of the actions of this administration,” the Canadian prime minister said.

France’s Macron Seeks to Forge European Front Against Trump

  • France’s Macron Seeks to Forge European Front Against Trump
    by Sylvie Corbet | AP, https://www.washingtonpost.com/
    PARIS — French President Emmanuel Macron is seeking to take the lead of the European brigade against U.S. President Donald Trump at the summit of the Group of Seven wealthy countries in Canada.

    Macron called a meeting Friday with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British Prime Minister Theresa May, new Italian Premier Giuseppe Conte and top EU officials just before the G-7 opening. He told reporters the United States’ attitude must lead other nations to “reforge the European front.”

    European leaders criticize the U.S. decision to impose protectionist tariffs on steel and aluminum and to exit the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris climate agreement. Tweeting in English, Macron stressed: “No leader is eternal. We inherit commitments which are beyond us. We take them on. That is the life of nations.”

    Macron launched the offensive on Thursday at a joint news conference with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Adopting an unusually sharp tone about one of France’s closest allies, Macron rejected the idea of an American “hegemony”.

    “The other countries of the G-6 are a larger market than the American market,” Macron said. “Maybe it doesn’t bother the American president to be isolated, but it doesn’t bother us to be six if need be.”

    European Council President Donald Tusk, who will attend the meeting of EU leaders, said in the New York Times this week “Europe must now do everything in its power to protect the trans-Atlantic bond, in spite of today’s mood. But at the same time we must be prepared for scenarios in which we will have to act on our own.”

Trump Fires Back at France, Canada as Macron Speaks of ‘G6’ Confronting US

  • Trump Fires Back at France, Canada as Macron Speaks of ‘G6’ Confronting US
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – President Donald Trump criticized Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for being so angry about the new US tariffs and accused Canada of hurting American dairy farmers.

    “Trudeau is being so indignant, bringing up the relationship that the US and Canada had over the many years and all sorts of other things … but he doesn’t bring up the fact that they charge us up to 300% on dairy — hurting our Farmers, killing our Agriculture!” Trump wrote in a Twitter message on Thursday.

    Earlier in the day, French President Emmanuel Macron said in a press briefing that French and Canadian delegations would try to persuade Trump at the G7 summit to take a more conventional path on trade amid his imposition of tariffs on the European Union and Canada.

    “The six countries of the G7 without the United States, are a bigger market taken together than the American market,” Macron said. “There will be no world hegemony if we know how to organise ourselves. And we don’t want there to be one.”

    The US president in an earlier tweet on Thursday said that Canada and France were charging the US massive tariffs and creating “non-monetary barriers.”

    “The EU trade surplus with the US is $151 Billion, and Canada keeps our farmers and others out,” Trump said in a tweet before adding that he looked forward to meeting the two leaders on Friday.

    Trump recently held a confrontational phone call with Trudeau on trade tariffs in which he blamed the Canadians for burning down the White House in the War of 1812, the media reported on Wednesday.

    Last week, Trump announced he would remove an exemption on steel and aluminum tariffs for Canada, Mexico, and the European Union due to the national security threat posed by the imports of these metals. Mexico and Canada responded to the US move with countermeasures. In particular, Ottawa announced it would target US steel, aluminum and other products totaling 16.6 billion Canadian dollars ($12.8 billion). The tariffs will take effect on July 1.

Italy’s Proposed Parallel Currency Is The Biggest Threat To The Eurozone. The Global Economy is Nearing “The Great Reset”

  • Italy’s Proposed Parallel Currency Is The Biggest Threat To The Eurozone
    by , https://www.forbes.com/
    I think the global economy is nearing what I call “The Great Reset.”

    My thesis is that over the next decade we will endure increasingly damaging debt crises that culminate in a coordinated global default. There are limits to how much leverage the world can handle, and I think we are already beyond them. And that is before we have a global recession. The only question now is how we will manage the collapse.

    I previously quoted former BIS Chief Economist William White on how this will all unfold. Here’s his key point again.

    … the trigger for a crisis could be anything if the system as a whole is unstable. Moreover, the size of the trigger event need not bear any relation to the systemic outcome. The lesson is that policymakers should be focused less on identifying potential triggers than on identifying signs of potential instability.

    Bill says the financial system is so fragile that practically anything could trigger a crisis. Better to watch for signs of potential instability. And one of the hot spots today is Italy.

    Parallel Currency
    Italy’s new government, an unexpected coalition between two populist parties, could blow up the fragile trust that keeps Europe together. And the leading parties may even be planning for it.
