in custom as in particular u.s. airlines because their fleets mostly consists of 737 max of air grounded so they had to incur heavy losses they had to cancel destinations which cost a lot of money or they had to these different aircraft which by the way other airlines had to do to like ryan air in europe that is additional cost and chinese airlines that the 737 max was very popular with them as well and they were apparently among the 1st to actually sue boeing over compensation which is why boeing set aside $5000000000.00 in samarra in order to be able to compensate these airlines but that was when they were thinking that the airline the aircraft would be up and running again by the end of the year which of course is all the case for
doing will be enough for compensation house boeing boeing. coping with all this of our layoffs in the pipeline well boeing says no boeing says that they will somehow find a way to keep employees to keep stuff ready and of course a lot of people saying that there was a major miscalculation on the side of boeing thinking that the 737 would be up in the air again by the end of this year i mean they continued production despite the fact that the airline that particular aircraft was grounded for 9 months. they thought that it would be up and running by the end of the year and of course one of the major reasons for the delay is that the final software package. which was a renewed one which was an improved one still has not been handed over to u.s. authorities for testing and approval and even if they gave it the green light international authorities would have to approve it as well and all of that takes time they didn't consider that and the software packages at the center of one of
the the most important issues convincing customers that this plane is safe but this this is the big question isn't it i mean boeing maintains that there. keen to get the 737 max airborne again of course in a safe mom no question is will pass and just still go for it i mean i personally don't think that this is going to be the end of boeing because in the public opinion people say i don't want to fly a 737 max i don't mind flying boeing so i mean at this particular not this particular one you can't monica thanks very much for that. well the european parliament set to debate the rule of law in malta today and consider a possible sanctions against that country now this is a day after brussels government and political interference into the investigation of the murder of journalist a definite car want to believe that was 2 years ago an influential businessman has
been charged in connection with that killing and there have been accusations of a government cover up the country's prime minister has vowed to resign next month following mass protests over the scout find out more now with our brussels correspondent barbara good morning to you barbara the european parliament will be taking up the situation in malta today could we see sanctions against this e.u. member state. at least they will be calling for ascensions because they're losing patience they've been dealing with this case for more than 2 years now i mean all this happened in 2017 and still there is no clarity about really what happened and they do fear that the government is about to cover its traces because somehow the investigation doesn't really proceed and the court seems to be working more and more slowly so they are calling for changes in the legal framework in the country
there is no real separation of powers the prime minister can nominate the chief of police the chief of the judiciary and the chief of the prosecution he might as well do all these 3 jobs by himself so that is one thing they're calling for and the european commission is supposed to open infringement procedures that's the legal part of forcing a member country to do something and again also they're calling for muska to step down now because they are afraid that they are having that out there cleaning their computers off of the traces of what really happened ok if there is no separation of powers in malta is this a case when the e.u. has the authority to interpose absolve directly in national politics. oh they do and they have to because we've seen this in poland we've seen this in hungary and now we see is see this in the small member state of malta that if
a country doesn't stick to the rule of law there is an interior deterioration off the political process and member states are by contract bound to these rules because of one country does it and the other doesn't the whole edifice to hold you to preen union is sort of undermined from within so they really have to enforce this and they have to become much more rigorous they look for years they looked on as hungary sort of undermined the rule of law in within the country they did the ongoing problems with poland now and now they're trying to sort of interfere in malta to the to the extent that they say you have to stick to the rules you have to change your own legal framework and sort of get it to comply and be compliant was the european union ok saying this is all about the edifice the legal edifice of the european you. but in malta following the story very closely for us a number of dives is the e.u. then the last hope for the rule of law in malta. in
a sense yes spawn on the other hand of course you do have now civil uprising i mean a country that has absolutely no tradition of demonstrations and civil society is simply too small and it's like one big huge family now knows people going out onto the streets day after day and we can after a weekend seen this big number of demonstrations done people are really angry and they don't want to be what many of them call the mafia state they don't want to be what many of them called a haven for criminals from inside and outside the european union because corruption has become so make and malta that is completely permeating permeating everything in the country the public projects the whole casino culture where money laundering is happening the banks that are used the money laundering the european central bank already closed one and warned another bank in malta so it is everywhere and many
citizens are fed up so that comes together and the european union is now trying to step up and enforce the rule of law and we should know more from brussels later today barbara thanks very much. let's get you some of the other stories making news today supporters of lebanon's 2 main shia groups have rioted in clashes with police and brute violence was triggered by an online video that showed a man insulting shia leaders to heighten tensions as president put back talks on naming a new prime minister. firefighters in australia are battling to contain blazes in the blue mountains national park that's west of sydney under a bush fires have been raging across australia for months now and conditions are getting worse the temperatures a new house is new south wales for example are set to top 40 degrees celsius.

now the chiappe satellite will be gathering plenty of data and will be looking for signs as well of life. life among the stars. if it's their mission could help find it. the satellite will study planets orbiting distant suns so-called exoplanets. will observe how these distant worlds pass in front of the stars they orbit. to make this possible researchers 1st have to scour the sky with other telescopes to select stars to be targeted by the satellite. hips is looking at one star at a time. so we need to know that stock has a planet we need to know when this planet passes in front of the star and at that moment we point there. the satellite is set to measure the tiny fluctuations in
brightness that occur when a planet passes in front of its star. a celestial. the size of earth dims the light by just 1100th of a percent can measure this barely perceptible flickering more accurately than ever before. from the decrease of light you can infer how big the planet is compared to stop because it just hides a part of the surface and you can compute which fraction of the surface is being hidden by the passing planet and that gives you the size of. all this was. seeing the planet we just see the shadow. with his telescope astronomers can determine another property of the invisible planets their mass. then want to combine this information with the data the obtained from key ops and thus determine the density of distant worlds. this shows them whether they are planets made of
rock or gas. whether the distant worlds have an ocean or consist of ice. the satellite should also find out whether they have an atmosphere. researchers can then draw conclusions as to how habitable these worlds are. super telescopes such as the so-called extremely large telescope will take a closer look at the earth like exoplanets in the coming decade they will search their atmospheres for microbes and plants traces of distant life. we have some sports now in the draw for the opening knockout round of the champions league has taken place by and will play against london club chelsea dortmund are set to face parasol and leipzig will square off against last year's finalists.
