Science News: U.S. agencies back DigitalGlobe bid to sell sharper images

DigitalGlobe Satellite image shows a tank on 6th Rishreen road in Qabun neighborhood in Damascus, SyriaBy Warren Strobel and Andrea Shalal TAMPA/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. intelligence community has thrown its support behind a bid by commercial space imagery provider DigitalGlobe Inc to sell higher resolution images from its satellites, the leading U.S. intelligence official said Tuesday. DigitalGlobe has pressed the government for years to allow it to sell such imagery but U.S. government agencies worried that giving public access to them could undermine the intelligence advantage they have from even higher resolution satellite images.

Science News: Tax Day in Space: How NASA Astronauts Pay Uncle Sam

Tax Day in Space: How NASA Astronauts Pay Uncle SamAmerican astronauts Rick Mastracchio and Steve Swanson are currently living on the International Space Station as part of its six-man crew, and it's a safe bet they took care of their taxes well before they ever launched into space, NASA says. NASA astronauts typically file taxes before launching into space, according to agency spokesman Jay Bolden at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, the home of U.S. astronaut corps. That forethought is something that NASA astronauts have not always had. During NASA's Apollo 13 moon mission in April 1970, astronaut Jack Swigert found himself in the surprising position of being in space on Tax Day without having filed his taxes.
