NASA’s return to the moon begins Monday

NASA is about to take the first step on its journey to return people to the moon by the end of the decade. If all goes well, a massive uncrewed rocket will lift off from Kennedy Space Center on Monday morning, then circle the moon in an orbit that will take it deep into space before it returns to Earth 42 days later.

Artemis 1 is the vanguard mission of NASA’s Artemis program, which aims to return astronauts to the moon by 2025 and land the first woman and person of color at the lunar south pole, a region astronauts have never seen with their own eyes. The mission flight will send an uncrewed Orion capsule on a 42-day trip to orbit the moon and return to Earth to test if the spacecraft is ready to carry astronauts.

According to NASA’s plan, Artemis 1 will lift off from Pad 39B — the same launch pad used by the Apollo 10 mission to orbit the moon in 1969, as well as Skylab and Apollo-Soyuz missions — and take about a week to reach lunar orbit. It will stay there for about a month before returning to Earth on Oct. 10.


‘The Breakfast Club As You Know It Is Officially Over,’ says Angela Yee.

Angela Yee has whipped fans of The Breakfast Club over

Angela Yee of iHeart Media introduces Lizzo, not pictured, for a keynote speech at the Austin Convention Center on Sunday, March 13, 2022, during the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas.

Angela Yee has sent fans of The Breakfast Club into a frenzy by declaring that the popular morning show is ending “as you know it.” Yee sent shockwaves through social media Tuesday night with a cryptic tweet in which she hinted at some bad news for fans of the popular radio talk show.

The co-host took to Twitter on Tuesday night (August 9) to share a cryptic message about the popular Power 105.1 breakfast show that she co-hosts with Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Envy.

“What a feat!” And thank you so much for this honor to everyone who listens to us in the morning and is part of our family!” Yee posted on Instagram at the time.

“All praise and glory to God, and sincere thanks and gratitude to everyone who listens to us on the radio, via podcast, YouTube, or however you consume your breakfast, THANK YOU for being a part of our club,” said Charlamagne.

The Breakfast Club debuted in 2010 and quickly became a New York City staple in Hip Hop radio. The show was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 2020, alongside Angie Martinez and Sway Calloway.

“One day people will look back and give us respect for how we impacted the culture over the last decade,” Charlamagne said at the time of their induction. I know it’s difficult to show love when people are still active; I understand. I’m sure the flowers will come when we get a documentary or something, but in the meantime.

In recent years, all three of the show’s hosts have steered their brands in different directions. Charlamagne, in addition to his expanded iHeart deal, also hosts “The God’s Honest Truth” on Comedy Central. DJ Envy is a real estate investor who travels the country giving seminars on his strategies, and Yee hosts “Lip Service,” an Apple Podcasts podcast about sex and relationships.

“All praise and glory to God, and heartfelt thanks and gratitude to everyone who listens to us on the radio, via podcast, YouTube, or wherever you get your breakfast, THANK YOU for being a part of our club.”
