Dating flight crew

Cabin crew on a passenger jet landed with an extra person on board as they helped deliver a baby girl at 42,000ft.Passengers also assisted after a woman went into labour soon after take-off on a flight from Conakry in Guinea to Istanbul.The long-range plan, with its roots in the Obama administration, is to use the SLS to send astronauts beyond the moon in the mid-2020s, first to rendezvous with a robotically retrieved asteroid, or chunk of an asteroid, and then to orbit Mars in the 2030s.The long gap between the SLS’ initial test flight and the piloted EM-2 mission, driven in large part by NASA’s budget and a variety of technical hurdles, has raised concerns in some quarters about maintaining public and congressional support in a program with years between flights and competing demands on agency funding.“Turkish Airlines’ Ouagadougou station officials reported that the baby and the mother currently do not have any health problems.

Flight attendants on board a flight collectively form a cabin crew, as distinguished from pilots and engineers in the cockpit.The German Heinrich Kubis was the world's first flight attendant, in 1912.Kubis first attended the passengers on board the DELAG Zeppelin LZ 10 Schwaben.The study, requested by the Trump administration, already is underway, but William Hill, deputy associate administrator for Exploration Systems Development at NASA Headquarters, said major technical challenges will need to be resolved, and the agency will need more money to make it happen.“It’s going to take a significant amount of money, and money that will be required fairly quickly to implement what we need to do,” he told reporters.“So it’s a question of how we refine the funding levels and the phasing of the funding for the next three years and see where it comes out.”If the feasibility study doesn’t pan out, he said, “we still have a very exciting mission.”The current plan calls for launching a “Block 1” SLS rocket in late 2018 -- Exploration Mission 1, or EM-1 -- to boost an unpiloted Orion capsule on a three-week flight beyond the moon and back to a high-speed re-entry and splashdown.
