Your daily fear-mongering from the CIA

CIA director warns of Istanbul-type attack in U.S.
By NICK GASS 06/29/16 09:42 AM EDT

The terrorist attack at Istanbul's Ataturk International Airport on Tuesday has the Islamic State's signature all over it, CIA Director John Brennan said in an interview published Wednesday, adding that the terrorist group is likely planning similar attacks in the United States.

NASA's Juno snaps its 1st picture of Jupiter and its moons

ASA's Juno spacecraft has sent its first photograph of Jupiter back to Earth.

The high-resolution image, taken by the craft's JunoCam, shows Jupiter and its four largest moons Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto. It was taken at a distance of 10.9 million kilometres from the planet. The photo also captures the alternating light and dark bands of Jupiter's clouds.

Unlike previous spacecraft, which approached Jupiter close to the planet's equator, Juno is coming toward the planet from a higher altitude, over the planet's north pole. This provides images from a unique perspective.
