U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – This week, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to authorize subpoenas for 53 officials involved in the abuse of FBI surveillance capabilities, including James Comey, Sally Yates, Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page, and Susan Rice. We need to know how these officials used and abused their taxpayer-given authority.

The Committee is also looking into the Crossfire Hurricane investigation. What we learn over the next few months will help ensure illegal surveillance of Americans never happens again.

Marsha Blackburn Op-Ed: COVID-19 Exposed Chinese Communist Party’s Duplicity

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – The COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic lifted the veil separating China from the rest of the world, and exposed the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) duplicity. Undoubtedly, U.S. lawmakers and officials will find more widespread acceptance of these revelations helpful as we rethink our country’s relationship with Beijing.

The CCP’s response to the initial COVID Coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan closed a bridge that the United States should have dismantled a long time ago.

NASA’s Cold Atom Lab aboard International Space Station takes One Giant Leap for Quantum Science

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – This month marks 25 years since scientists first produced a fifth state of matter, which has extraordinary properties totally unlike solids, liquids, gases and plasmas. The achievement garnered a Nobel Prize and changed physics.

A new study in the journal Nature builds on that legacy. In July 2018, NASA’s Cold Atom Lab became the first facility to produce that fifth state of matter, called a Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC), in Earth orbit. A fundamental physics facility on the International Space Station, Cold Atom Lab cools atoms down to ultracold temperatures in order to study their basic physical properties in ways that would not be possible on Earth.

This image shows six finely tuned lasers used inside NASA's Cold Atom Lab to slow down atoms, lowering their temperature. This is step one in a three-step cooling process. (NASA/JPL-Caltech)
