US issues warrant to seize Iranian oil tanker

Washington, Aug 17 (UITV/IANS)- The US Justice Department has issued a warrant to seize a detained Iranian oil tanker, the Grace 1, a day after a judge in Gibraltar ordered it to be released, the media reported on Saturday.

The Grace 1 supertanker, which is carrying 2.1m barrels of oil, was detained on July 4 on suspicion of illegally transporting oil to Syria.

A last-minute legal attempt by the US to keep the tanker detained was rejected by Gibraltar on Thursday, leading to the release of the tanker which was also carrying 24 Indians on board.

Jupiter still reeling from head-on collision 4.5bn years ago

New York, Aug 17 (UITV/IANS)- A colossal, head-on collision between Jupiter and a still-forming planet in the early solar system, about 4.5 billion years ago, has left Jupiter's core less dense and more extended that expected, say researchers.

Even if this impact happened 4.5 billion years ago, "it could still take many, many billions of years for the heavy material to settle back down into a dense core under the circumstances suggested by the paper", said researchers who analysed readings from NASA's Juno spacecraft.

Astronomers from Rice University and China's Sun Yat-sen University say their head-on impact scenario can explain Juno's...
