Peggy Whitson Sets Space Record... Again

At exactly 1:27 a.m. ET on April 24, 2017, U.S. astronaut Peggy Whitson set the new record for cumulative time spent in space by a U.S. astronaut. The previous record, 534 days, 2 hours, and 48 minutes was previously set by astronaut Jeff Williams, but it was inevitable Whitson would surpass his number since she launched in November 2016 with 377 days already under her belt. Then, by the time she returns in September, the record will be set even higher with 650 cumulative days in space. This isn’t the first record Whitson has set however, in 2008 she became the first woman to command the space station and in March 2017, she set the record for the most spacewalks by a woman.


Both houses of the New Jersey legislature have chosen to postpone voting on a bill that would have legalized recreational cannabis in the state. New Jersey Senate President Steve Sweeney (D) has announced that Monday's Senate and Assembly votes on the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory and Expungement Aid Modernization Act has been cancelled. "While we are all disappointed that we did not secure enough votes to ensure legislative approval of the adult use cannabis bill today, we made substantial progress on a plan that would make significant changes in social policy," Sweeney said in a statement on Monday afternoon.
