Twitter drama too much? Mastodon, others emerge as options

Twitter has been a bit of a mess since billionaire Tesla CEO took helm, cutting the company's workforce in half, overhauling the platform's verification system, sparring with some users and acknowledging that "dumb things" might happen as he reshapes one of the world's most high-profile information ecosystems.

But lesser-known sites such as Mastodon and even Tumblr are emerging as new or renewed alternatives.

US weather satellite, test payload launched into space

A satellite intended to improve weather forecasting and an experimental inflatable heat shield to protect spacecraft entering atmospheres have been launched into space from California. A United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket carrying the Joint Polar Satellite System-2 satellite and the NASA test payload lifted off early Thursday from Vandenberg Space Force Base, northwest of Los Angeles. Developed for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, JPSS-2 was placed into an orbit that circles the Earth from pole to pole. NASA says the satellite is safe but mission managers are trying to determine whether its solar array properly deployed. Meanwhile, the heat shield re-entered Earth's atmosphere and splashed down in the Pacific Ocean east of Hawaii, where it has been recovered.

Unmanned, solar-powered US space plane back after 908 days

An unmanned U.S. military space plane has landed after spending a record 908 days in orbit for its sixth mission and conducting science experiments. The solar-powered vehicle landed early Saturday at NASA's Kennedy Space Center. Its previous mission lasted 780 days. The X-37B space plane hosted a service module that carried experiments for the Naval Research Laboratory, the U.S. Air Force Academy and others. One experiment deployed a satellite in October 2021 that still remains in orbit. Another evaluated the effects of long-duration space exposure on seeds.
