El Orbitador Solar será lanzado desde Cabo Cañaveral y los Óscares se entregarán en Los Ángeles.

Events covered include:

Feb 3, U.S.: Iowa hosts the first caucuses ahead of the Nov 3 election. President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial looms as a complication for Democrat senators Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar, who are required to attend the trial as jurors, a drain on their campaigning efforts

Feb 4, South Africa: Former president Jacob Zuma appears likely to face the corruption charges he has dodged for 15 years, after his application for a permanent stay of prosecution was dismissed
