On This Day in American History
On July 29, 1958, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration is established by Congress. Created as a direct response to the Soviet Union’s surprise 1957 launch of Sputnik 1, the world’s first artificial satellite, NASA was charged with focusing on all U.S. space endeavors. Since its establishment, NASA has successfully landed Americans on the moon and launched probes to the far corners of the solar system. NASA has also suffered setbacks, including two space shuttle crashes and a deadly fire during an Apollo 1 training session.

Chinese property tycoon Ren Zhigiang has been kicked out of the Communist Party for calling authoritarian leader Xi Jinping a “clown” and now faces a criminal investigation that could end with prosecution.
