First up, lawmakers in Iran have given the green light to a controversial nuclear deal involving their country. 161 members of the Iranian Parliament voted for the deal. 56 voted against it. It lifts international sanctions, these penalties on Iran, allowing billions of dollars to resume flowing into its economy. In exchange, Iran's agreed to put its nuclear program on hold. The US led a group of five other countries in negotiating the deal. About half of Americans, and most US lawmakers opposed it. But the deal had enough support in the Senate to keep it in place. There are still issues between the US and Iran. The Middle Eastern country's supreme leader says the deal won't change his government's stance toward the US. The US government says that Iran probably broke the law when it test fired a new missile over the weekend. Then there's the issue of hostages. He spent 391 days in Iran's most notorious prison, without being charged for months, tried behind closed doors. American Jason Rezaian, the Washington Post Tehran bureau chief, appeared on CNN's Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown just before he was detained last July. Eventually, he was accused of spying and collaborating with a hostile government, charges his family, his employer, and the US government call baseless. We want Jason to have a fair trial and the only fair verdict is to acquit him. Along with Amir Hekmati, Saeed Abedini and Robert Levinson resigned as one of four Americans held or missing in Iran. President Obama has vowed to win their release. I told them personally we will not rest until we bring him home to his family, safe and sound. The president came under sharp fire for not securing their freedom as part of a landmark nuclear deal with Iran, bristling when challenged by a reporter. The notion that I'm content, as I celebrate with American citizens languishing in Iranian jails, Major, that's nonsense. His family feels that Jason has become a political pawn in the challenging US Iran relationship. He is paying the price of the suspicion, the animosity, and the paranoia between the two countries for more than 37 years. Iran has a history of holding Americans on trumped up charges, from journalist Roxana Sobari to the American hikers captured in Iran, later releasing them after public trials and before serving out their sentences. In Washington, there is concern with why Iran is detaining him, and what they hope to get out of all of this. A new report by Dutch investigators concludes that a missile brought down a passenger plane over Ukraine last year. The plane was Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, and to be clear, this is not the jet that disappeared over the Indian Ocean in March of 2014. That one still hasn't been found. Malaysia Airlines flight 17 crashed in July. It was headed from Netherlands to Malaysia when a war head exploded outside the cockpit. All 298 people aboard were killed. The incident happened over the Eastern part of Ukraine, a country that's been at civil war since early last year. Officials did not say who was to blame for shooting down the plane. A separate investigation aims to do that, but they did indicate that Ukrainian officials should have closed the air space over country. Keeping an ear to the sky, worldwide interest in space is on the rise. NASA has five active missions to Mars. Last year European astronomers landed, then lost a spacecraft on a comet. Now China is building the world's biggest radio telescope to listen for life beyond Earth. Its cost is estimated at about $ 108 million. China is building the world's largest radio telescope, called the Five- hundred- meter Aperture Spherical Telescope, or FAST. To give you an idea of just how big this thing is, imagine 30 soccer pitches put together. FAST is due to be completed in 2016, allowing researchers to detect radio signals, signs of potential life from up to a million stars and solar systems. The Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico is currently the world's largest with a diameter of 305 meters. Fast precision will allow astronomers to survey the Milky Way, and other galaxies, and detect faint pulsars. The set up might also work as a powerful ground station for future space missions. Maybe most interesting, is its potential to advance the search for For extraterrestrial signs of life. In July, NASA sparked excitement with its discovery of an earth- like planet named Kepler 452- B, whose proximity to the sun is ideal for supporting an atmosphere and liquid water. But detecting radio signals, signs of life radiating from the exoplanet is beyond the means of our current instruments. But not for FAST, there are many people who think we aren't alone. It's not clear whether FAST will ever find evidence of little green men, but it will allow us to look further than ever before.

You might think we're talking about evidence of water on Mars or the detection of it on a distant planet. Nah, we're talking about water in space, cuz it looks cool. Astronauts aboard the International Space Station made a blob of water float around, then they turned it colors. They put bubbles in it, and they got some really detailed video of it, thanks to a high- tech camera they have aboard the station. Guess they wanted to make a splash, and after addressing the gravity of the situation, they probably figured, what are we waiting for? We're the H2 only ones up here. Footage like this is worth the weightlessness. I'm Carl Azuz for CNN Student News.
