Out-of-control unmanned space ship hurtles toward Earth

Published on Apr 29, 2015

An unmanned Russian cargo spacecraft ferrying supplies to the International Space Station is plunging back to Earth and apparently out of control.The Russian space agency is trying to re-establish contact with the cargo vessel as it hurtles over ground stations, but is struggling because the 2.5 tonne spacecraft is tumbling.

“It has started descending. It has nowhere else to go,” an official familiar with the situation told Agence France-Presse on condition of anonymity on Wednesday. The official was speaking ahead of an official Russian space agency statement expected later in the day. “It is clear that absolutely uncontrollable reactions have begun.”

A Soyuz rocket carrying the Progress M-27M spacecraft with supplies for the International Space Station successfully launched on Tuesday, but communication with the vessel was lost soon afterwards.

The controllers had earlier opted to change the flight plan and extend the vessel’s journey to two days instead of six hours in a bid to fix the glitch.

Flamenco dancing priest attracts more parishioners (Video)

For those who imagine the Catholic church in Spain as a solemn place with incense burning, think again, as news comes in from the southern Spanish city of Málaga of a flamenco dancing priest, attracting new followers to his church in a most unusual way.
José Planas Moreno, 66, is known as Father Pepe to his parishioners and is no ordinary, everyday Roman Catholic priest.
Recently interviewed by the local daily newspaper, Diario Sur, Moreno said, “They say if you pray singing its worth two prayers, so if you pray while dancing it must be worth three.”
What Father Pepe does to attract new visitors to his church is to challenge female churchgoers to a literal flamenco face-off, and he does it so well, as can be seen in the video above.
The video was uploaded to YouTube on July 23, and so far the comments are positive, ranging from “Me encanto. Fabuloso!” (I love it. Fabulous!) to “Olé Pepe con tu arte en la parroquia viva tu” (Bravo Pepe, with your art you keep the parish alive).
