Country that launched asteroid spacecraft

OSIRIS-REx is the third planetary science mission in (US) NASA's New Frontiers program. Recommend we identify the launching and monitoring country. Thanks. RaqiwasSushi (talk) 05:11, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

Welcome to the 2019 WikiCup!

Hello and Happy New Year!

Welcome to the 2019 WikiCup, the competition begins today. If you have already joined, your submission page can be found here. If you have not yet signed up, you can add your name here and we will set up your submissions page. One important rule to remember is that only content on which you have completed significant work during 2019, and which you have nominated this year, is eligible for points in the competition, the judges will be checking! Any questions should be directed to one of the judges, or left on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup. Signups will close at the end of January, and the first round will end on 26 February; the 64 highest scorers at that time will make it to round 2. Good luck! The judges for the WikiCup are Sturmvogel 66 (talk · contribs · email), Godot13 (talk · contribs · email), Vanamonde93 (talk · contribs · email) and Cwmhiraeth (talk · contribs · email).

Possible NPOV problem

Jan 1,2019's Law and Crime section states that "Five people are injured after a man intentionally drives a car into multiple crowds of people in the cities of Bottrop and Essen, Germany. Police say the incident appears to be a xenophobic far-right attack." What exactly does "far-right" mean? If the section is stating that right-wing politics is xenophobic, than it would not have a NPOV. - ZLEA Talk\Contribs 16:07, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

I've added a comma. Both terms are in the reference. Isa (talk) 16:18, 3 January 2019 (UTC)
But is far-right NPOV? - ZLEA Talk\Contribs 16:21, 3 January 2019 (UTC)
Sure, it's mentioned in several reliable sources. Isa (talk) 16:32, 3 January 2019 (UTC)
