Will any other Republicans join Rep. Mike Coffman of Colorado in supporting the CRA resolution to void FCC's efforts to roll back net neutrality rules?
This week, the European and Chinese space agencies held a workshop in Amsterdam to discuss cooperation between Europe and China on lunar science missions. The meeting comes as Europe seems increasingly content to work with China on spaceflight programs.
Although the meeting is not being streamed online, space systems designer and lunar exploration enthusiast Angeliki Kapoglou has been providing some coverage of the meeting via Twitter. Among the most interesting things she has shared are slides from a presentation by Pei Zhaoyu, who is deputy director of the Lunar Exploration and Space Program Center of the China National Space Administration.
Very very interesting statement by CNSA’s Pei Zhaoyu. “NASA will focus on building the LOPG. CNSA will build the lunar scientific research station on the surface” Moreover, according to Pei the LOPG has low economic effectiveness.
The congressional bill to reinstate net neutrality rules has finally received support from a House Republican.
US Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Colo.) today announced his support for the bill. Coffman is signing a discharge petition that would force the House to vote on a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution; the resolution would reverse the Federal Communications Commission's repeal of its net neutrality rules.
The US Senate approved the CRA resolution in May, with votes from all members of the Democratic caucus and three Republican senators. While 176 House Democrats have signed the discharge petition, Coffman is the first House Republican to do so.
Facebook, Twitter and Google told Congress what they block on social media, and why.

Original article (7/16/2018 11:10am ET): Greetings, Arsians! The Dealmaster is back with another round of deals to share. Today, as you may have heard, Amazon Prime Day begins—it's the annual sales event/advertisement/sunk cost celebration in which Amazon discounts thousands of items for members of its Prime subscription service.
While more than 100 million people now subscribe to Prime, the event still leaves a big chunk of would-be bargain hunters out in the cold, and the recent price hikes to the service don't make it any more welcoming. Naturally, this has left the door open for competing stores to swoop in and try to capitalize on the Prime Day buzz with alternative deals of their own.
It's a great time to jump on Nintendo Switch and Xbox One S deals while they're still available.
