five two. and that's it for me santa thanks very much see you later. the science museum in london is promising visitors a sunny day out whatever the weather in the u.s. mission a showing of the sun influences every aspect of human life and why it is a constant fascination but went along to take a look. it's our closest star but in many ways it's still a mystery the sun has influenced our belief systems our arts travel and of course it's the basis for life on earth this show at london's science museum looks back at how we used to think about the sun and forwards to challenges like really harnessing its energy with things like solar panels going forward and indeed we are seeing a lot more technological development for the first time it's actually thought it becomes cheaper and fossil fuels but we do need that push from politics i don't
10:44 pm
think from the everyday operation as well the fuel mileage. one idea featured here is how scientists have tried to recreate the nuclear reactions the power of the sun now those nuclear fusion they thought they succeeded in the one nine hundred fifty s. but they hadn't and even with the latest machines like this recent prototype nobody's managed to get more energy out than what they put in if he's in on a commercial basis is cracked the results can be game changing the amount of energy you can get an hour from using the atoms together is absolutely vast millions and millions of times more efficient than the burning of fossil fuels. one of the main messages from this exhibition is the huge variety of ways in which we humans use the songs. and then. there's a warning. the sun's activities could pose a real threat to our planet a threat very few people know about this. it's called
10:45 pm
space weather and in particular solar storms when the sun throws out huge clouds of plasma. as this interactive game shows the phenomenon cannot count satellites in space and power grids here on earth there are things that people are doing so the met office now maintains a twenty four hour space weather forecasting center where they monitor the sun watching out for the early signs of one of these major storms and if you get more warning that means you can warn the people who run the grid warn satellites you can ground flights to avoid people getting high doses of radiation at high altitude one of these things going up on the ice scientists could get more answers fairly soon and nasa probes set off towards the sun this summer and in twenty twenty the european space agency launches its solar orbiter from its vantage point forty two million kilometers from the sun it could provide clues about what drives the sun's magnetic fields. back here on earth the team at the science museum are hoping this
10:46 pm
exhibition will attract a big audience and some stellar reviews that al-jazeera london. that was our broadcast that we will recall the top stories for you when we come back we will have thirty minutes of al-jazeera world news at the top of the hour i will see you very soon. when their on line for humanity has been taken down there's going to have been told you about the numbers on a spreadsheet or if you join us on the sat i guarantee no one else has a back story like yours this is a dialogue and i'm just tired of seeing the negative stereotypes about native americans everyone has a voice resurfacing that's your comments your questions i'll do my best to bring them into the cell join the global conversation on al-jazeera challenge your

10:48 pm
natural gas in west africa but what to do with these untapped natural resources is already a source of heated debate nothing much has changed they still spend most of their days looking forward to for the dry river beds like this one five years on the syrians still feel battered or even those who managed to escape their country have been truly unable to escape the war. and this man was murdered inside a consulate in istanbul cross every line. normality in the international community the u.s. senate orders an investigation into the fate of the missing saudi journalist jamal khashoggi.
10:49 pm
you're watching al-jazeera live from doha also coming up. to the international space station. it was shortly after liftoff when something went wrong the crew of the russian soyuz rocket was forced back to work plus. assessing the damage caused by one of the most powerful hurricanes to ever make landfall in the u.s. . animals in danger global leaders look for ways to end the illegal wildlife trade . the u.s. senate has ordered an inquiry into the disappearance and the suspected murder of the saudi journalist jamal. last week a bipartisan group of twenty two u.s.
10:50 pm
senators triggered human rights legislation now that forces the trumpet ministration to act within one hundred twenty days following calls for measures to be taken against the saudis the us president donald trump said he will not stop u.s. arms sales he doesn't want to damage the american economy the washington post says the saudi crown prince ordered an operation to detain shoji and fly him home the turkish president meanwhile is questioning saudi assertions that the surveillance system at the consulate in istanbul was not recording when i disappeared. turkish media has released the names of the fifteen saudi nationals suspected of killing a short she and i q zation saudi arabia of the humanly design is a turkish news source released this picture of the saudi group saying they booked into hotels near the saudi consulate but they left turkey less than twenty four
10:51 pm
hours after they had arrived the sources they include an air force lieutenant and a saudi forensic chief and autopsy expert several special forces officers are among the group it also points to at least one of them working closely allegedly with the crown prince mohammed bin. in a moment we'll go live to alan fischer in washington d.c. with more on the u.s. investigation and we'll begin though with jamal el sheil our correspondent outside the saudi consulate in istanbul now jamal just in the past fifteen minutes or so we're getting this information coming to us from the turkish foreign minister unpack that for us how significant is it. well peter there are two headlines that came from a briefing or quick statements he made whilst on a trip in iraq and the first is that the the night that there was any involvement from u.s. intelligence operatives in the investigation in the killing gulf. is
10:52 pm
second more significant one was a direct call once again for cooperation from saudi arabia he said that they expect and they want cooperation from saudi authorities in this investigation obviously this comes after there was it became clear over the authorities i've refused the request for the turkish officials to search the building behind me there where it was that she was last seen and they don't only want to search this building peter they're also interested in searching and examining several vehicles that are registered to the diplomatic mission here as well as the home of the saudi console general particularly because some of those vehicles that's were captured on camera as you see as the consulate behind me one in particular actually was a black thousands drove through the consul general's house which is just
10:53 pm
a couple hundred meters away and reversed into the garbage and there was some offloading both some sort of contents according to the video there and therefore it's raised suspicions as to what kind of role if any the consul general himself played so the foreign minister is the month in that the saudis cooperates with this investigation. this is pictet murder of journalist jamal khashoggi and the saudi consulate in istanbul doesn't only threaten tucker saudi relations its impact is reaching washington on wednesday twenty two senators from both the republican and democratic parties triggered human rights legislation in the magnitsky act and since a letter to president donald trump demanding an investigation into what's happened if that investigation finds that kushal human rights were violated by the saudi government then the u.s. would be forced to impose sanctions and review its relationship with the saudis and this man was murdered in saudi consulate in istanbul have across every line of
10:54 pm
normality in the international community. if that did happen it would be hell to pay if saudi arabia took a us resident emerging into a consulate and killed him it's time for the united states to rethink our military political and economic relationship with saudi arabia the turkish president's right up paper to one spoke for the first time about the case early on thursday costing doubt on saudi claims that the consulate's video cameras weren't recording on the day she went missing turkish officials have also expressed their frustration at the saudis lack of cooperation citing their refusal to allow investigators to search the consulates the consul generals home and vehicles registered to the saudi diplomatic mission tucker security sources say they are certain that. was killed in the building behind me they've released photos and the identity of the fifteen man hit squad they say killed the saudi journalist amongst the members of crime prince
10:55 pm
mohammed bin said a man's personal guard as well as the kingdom's or one of the kingdom's leading forensic experts and the former head of intelligence at the saudi arabian embassy in london turkey's police and security services seem to be delaying officially announcing the results of the. investigation well decision is made on how to retaliate against saudi infringements of turkish sovereignty keech a that's appears to be finding some sort of consensus amongst turkey's and eyes and the international community. notes of consensus the jamal to get the feeling given that we've got these comments from the turkish foreign minister in the past half hour or so now that the turkish government feels i.e. mr erdogan perhaps feels they have got the necessary components in place to take this investigation to the next stage. well if they haven't got them all they are getting close to may appear at least because aside
10:56 pm
from the latest moves the developments in the united states with the investigation that's been triggered on the comments that have been made as you point out by donald trump we've also heard some strong words come from the u.k. foreign secretary jeremy hunt you said that if indeed the reports were accurate that in saudi arabia would face some serious consequences we've heard from the german parliament's we've heard from other european countries as well as obviously the united nations and it seems that all that is left really is for the talks to officially then announce and share the information they have with all these different governments in order for us to see what kind of reaction the saudis will have but i mean it would be very naive to believe that the saudis themselves are countering this behind the scenes just because we haven't heard of any public statements being made by saudi authorities or you could be rest assured that the not the groups that are on the retainer for the saudis and obviously the different
10:57 pm
mechanisms that riyadh has in place to safeguard its own interests are probably hard at work to at least in terms of damage limitation if not more and we've seen at least maybe play out online and on the media where we've had saudi states news agencies trying to poke holes or cause that out. what exactly happened there was even photo shop images of allegedly hundreds you commingled which were later seem to be a whole another things like that so there is a counter spin to what is happening but so far zero substance from the saudi side and everything that's come from that circus site has come through unnamed sources jamal thank you. well initially top u.s. officials avoided any comment but the use of the magnitsky act by senators has forced the trumpet ministration to address growing concerns about the actions of its major ally saudi arabia tickle him as that aspect of the story from washington
10:58 pm
. donald trump went from no one knows what happened to jamal khashoggi to we need to find out we demanding everything we want to see what's going on here it's a bad situation it's a very serious situation for us for this way we do see. what is going on now will be the subject of an official investigation after twenty two senators sent this letter to the white house invoking the magnitsky act it gives the administration four months to determine if the show g.'s human rights were violated and if so by law they will have to place sanctions potentially on people high up in the saudi government the outcry is bipartisan and growing and that this man was murdered in the saudi consulate in istanbul that would cross every line of normality in the international community. if it did happen it would be hell to pay
10:59 pm
if saudi arabia took a us resident emerging into a consulate and killed him it's time for the united states to rethink our military political and economic relationship with saudi arabia the president has been eager to forge a relationship with the leadership of saudi arabia heralded tens of billions of dollars in defense deals but with reports that many of those have not come through the president will be under increasing pressure to target saudi arabia he's not alone just about six months ago the crown prince mohammed bin solomon toured america meeting the most powerful people in the country all now being urged on social media to condemn him and for the president it is about to get personal after fiance wrote this opinion piece in the washington post urging action the president said he'll meet her at the white house soon. this was a day that saw the president speak out small public protests in washington d.c. in new york the true
11:00 pm
a lot of media attention and angry senators demanding action all signs that for saudi arabia this is not going to go away any time soon patty calling al-jazeera washington ok there is another aspect of this story for you that we're going to drill down into we understand the u.s. quote according to the reuters news agency quote seeing the u.s. president donald trump appearing on fox news has investigators overseas let's bring in alan fischer allan what else do we know we don't know much more than that certainly donald trump surprises when he made that announcement jury in a thursday morning interview with his favorite cable channel he said that there were investigators overseas we started to make calls to find out exactly what the president meant by that where the entire key were the in saudi arabia what exactly was happening and then a short time afterwards the turkish foreign minister said there were no u.s. investigators in turkey so we're still trying to get clarification on that.
