Watch NASA unveil prototype spacesuits for astronauts to wear on the Moon

[This stream is slated to begin at 2 p.m. ET. Please refresh the page if you do not see a player above at that time.]

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine on Tuesday will unveil new designs for two spacesuits that astronauts could wear to explore the moon in upcoming missions.

The agency is trying to achieve President Donald Trump’s task of landing U.S. astronauts on the moon’s surface by 2024, a feat that will require a host of new equipment.

Bridenstine will show NASA’s design for the spacesuit the astronauts will wear during flight, called the Orion Crew Survival System, and for the spacesuit the astronauts would wear while walking on the lunar surface. The latter suit, known as the Exploration Extravehicular Mobility Unit (or “xEMU”), would provide greater mobility and comfort for astronauts than the Apollo explorers or even the suits worn currently by astronauts on the International Space Station, according to NASA.

“With the improvements to the suits for Artemis missions, astronauts can now open up new possibilities for science and exploration at the Moon,” Marshall Smith, NASA’s director of the Human Lunar Exploration program, said in a statement.

Medicare open enrollment is underway. Here's what's new and what to watch out for

Martin Barraud | Getty Images

It’s the time of year for people on Medicare to give their coverage a checkup. The program’s annual enrollment period runs from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7, which is when you can make changes to your coverage that will take effect Jan. 1. During this window, you can: • Switch to an Advantage Plan from original Medicare (Part A hospital coverage and Part B outpatient care); • Switch to original Medicare from an Advantage Plan; • Move from one Advantage Plan to another; • Move from one prescription drug plan (Part D) to another, or purchase one if you did not when first eligible. Experts say that even if you’ve been happy with your 2019 coverage, both Advantage and prescription drug plans are modified from year to year — and new plans become available, as well — which means it’s important to evaluate whether your current option is still the best available for you.

“Each insurance carrier revisits their [drug] formulary and they renegotiate provider contracts,” said Elizabeth Gavino, founder of Lewin & Gavino in New York and an independent broker and general agent for Medicare plans. “So you need to make sure your providers, prescriptions and your preferred pharmacy are still on the plan.” Additionally, changes can affect your premiums, copays, deductibles and covered services, along with the cost of your prescriptions. And, you might find coverage that meets your needs at a better cost. If, after evaluating your options, you determine that you want to stick with your current coverage, you don’t need to take any action. It’s worth noting that Medicare’s fall open enrollment is different from your initial enrollment period, which is a seven-month window that starts three months before your 65th birthday and ends three months after your birth month. Also during that initial sign-up time, you can sign up for an Advantage Plan, which includes Parts A and B and, typically, a Part D prescription plan. These plans also often include additional coverage such as dental, vision or wellness programs. Here are some key things to keep in mind this year.

What’s new

If you use the Plan Finder tool on Medicare.gov to compare your options each year, you’ll be navigating a new system. The updated version, which became available to users in late August, was met with criticism due to various changes — and glitches — that caused incomplete or incorrect results to be generated. While the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has deployed many fixes in the wake of the negative feedback, it’s uncertain whether more tweaks are in store or if users will continue running into issues. “The intentions were good, but the timing was terrible,” said Danielle Roberts, co-founder of insurance firm Boomer Benefits in Fort Worth, Texas. She added, though, that users can always call 1-800-MEDICARE if any information seems to be missing or anything is unclear. As of Tuesday, there were still differences between the new and old versions that were not viewed as improvements. For example, users were still finding incomplete results related to prescription drugs, including the details of a particular plan’s limits on the quantity of the medicine you need covered. Meanwhile, you also might notice some supplemental benefits available through Advantage Plans that you hadn’t seen in the past. While many plans already offer extras such as dental or vision coverage, new rules allow Advantage Plans to offer services that go beyond traditional medical care. For example, roughly 500 plans are expected to offer services such as adult day care or caregiver support systems next year, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Another 250 plans will offer things such as meal delivery, rides to the grocery store or even pest control. However, not all extra benefits are available to everyone who enrolls in the particular plan offering them. Some may only be extended to people with certain chronic illnesses or conditions — and even then, whether you qualify must be assessed by the plan once you’re enrolled. “You won’t know if you’re eligible for those supplemental benefits until you’re in the plan,” said David Lipschutz, associate director for the Center for Medicare Advocacy. “So don’t be lured in only by the bells and whistles.” More from Personal Finance:

How to know if a pension lump sum is right for you

Earning income after 65? How to make it work for you If you pick an Advantage Plan during fall enrollment and realize afterward that it’s not a good fit, you can change your coverage between Jan. 1 and March 31 by switching to either another Advantage Plan or to original Medicare and a stand-alone prescription plan. Be aware that while you can change your mind about your coverage several times during the current open enrollment period, you can only make one change during the January-through-March window. The average premiums for Advantage Plans is forecast to be $23 next year, down from close to $27 in 2019. Yet this year, 56% of enrollees paid no premium, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. Regardless of the amount, keep in mind that it’s in addition to your Part B premium. Although there’s been no official word yet on what that 2020 base amount will be, it’s projected to rise to $144.30 from $135.50 this year, according to the latest Medicare Trustees report. The deductible for Part A is forecast to increase to $1,420 from $1,364, and the deductible for Part B is projected to go to $197 from $185.

The impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump is heating up Capitol Hill, but disagreements over fiscal issues could create just as much friction at the Democratic primary debate Tuesday night. The fourth debate of the primary season is guaranteed to be the biggest yet, with 12 candidates set to appear at Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio — including Sen. Bernie Sanders, who recently suffered a heart attack. Former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren will hold court in the center of the stage, flanked by Sanders and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg. Billionaire Tom Steyer, a late entry in the crowded primary field, will be making his debut debate appearance. They’ll have plenty to talk about in the debate, which is being hosted by CNN and The New York Times from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET. Some of the widest divisions among the Democrats relate to trade, where some candidates see tariffs — a tool condemned by free-marketeers but championed by Trump — as a viable option. Expect to see Democrats respond with skepticism to Trump’s recent announcement that he’s reached a “phase one deal” with China.

On the domestic front, many of the candidates recently released their third-quarter fundraising totals — all of which fell far short of Trump’s massive war chest. The numbers coming in have stoked tensions within the party about the role of money in politics, which could be further hashed out at the debate. Biden — who remains the front-runner in the race, according to the RealClearPolitics polling average — has the most to lose at the debate. And he’s likely to be hit with some tough and unflattering questions about his son Hunter’s business dealings, which Trump has latched onto amid the increasingly popular impeachment inquiry. Sen. Kamala Harris, entrepreneur Andrew Yang, Sen. Cory Booker, former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard will also share the stage. Here are the business issues to watch going into the fourth debate:

Trade

The fourth debate is taking place in Ohio, widely viewed as a swing state and a bellwether for the national presidential election. Trump won the state in 2016 with about 51% of the vote. It’s also a Midwest industrial state that has struggled with the loss of manufacturing jobs and agricultural uncertainty, said Melissa Miller, an associate professor of American politics at Ohio’s Bowling Green State University. That puts the long-running U.S.-China trade negotiations into sharp focus for the debate. Democrats have previously gone after Trump over trade, but the White House’s apparent recent progress in the trade talks could complicate their criticisms. Still, the first “phase” of the deal has yet to be put on paper, and new worries about the negotiations started to emerge Monday. “The president does have a way of undermining little steps forward with big steps backward on Twitter and the like,” Miller said. “The Democrat who can really simplify and make clear to voters what’s at stake and the extent to which actual households will feel the impacts, that’s the candidate who can break through,” she added.

Fundraising

Health care

As in the previous debates, health care is set to be a major sticking point. Most politicians support finding ways to expand health coverage while avoiding spiraling costs. But there are chasms of differences among the candidates about how to achieve that goal. Sanders has long advocated a government-run program — “Medicare for All” — that applies to everyone. His proposal, currently a bill that has no chance of passing the Republican-controlled Senate, would widen the types of coverage available, as well as push private insurers out of the Medicare mix in favor of a single-payer model.

With trade agreement in doubt, five experts share what to watch now

Stocks are in a holding pattern to begin the week as doubts are raised over how much progress was made between the U.S. and China on Friday.

Chinese officials are reportedly seeking further discussions with the U.S. on trade before they sign “phase one” of a deal announced last week.

Five experts weigh in on what they’re watching right now.

Simeon Hyman, global investment strategist at ProShares Advisors, says trade progress could be the last bit of good news for a while.

“I think the trade deal is probably the only real source of upside in the near term because I don’t think we’re going to have a great earnings season. We have banks reporting this week. You know, it’s been a tough environment for banks — deal volume is slowing a little bit, and the yield curve was inverted up until just a week or so ago — so I don’t think you’re going to get a big impetus from the earnings side. But we certainly know politically, a win on that front sometime as we approach more of the height of the election season is not a terrible thing to bank on.”

William Foster of Moody’s Investors Service says this gave the U.S. and China some breathing room before they move forward.

“It’s a step forward, but it’s, you know, we can’t expect too much, and obviously you’re seeing that right now from China. This basically buys more time for the two sides to try to come to some kind of agreement on some of the core issues, and that will just give the market more time to kind of digest.”

Sameer Samana, senior global market strategist at Wells Fargo Investment Institute, is playing it cautiously for the rest of the year.

“If you look at this trade deal, it’s probably a political win for both sides, which were in need of such a win. Unfortunately, it just doesn’t mean a whole lot for S&P earnings. It probably doesn’t mean a lot for economic data, at least not over the coming months. So from our standpoint, you know, you’ve got good gains in calendar year 2019 even though if you stretch back to Q4 last year they’re not spectacular. We’re still playing it pretty cautiously, so we are underweight small caps, they tend to be lower quality and tend to have fewer levers to pull. We’re also underweight high yield. We think credits are probably a little bit overdone, spreads are very tight. You’re just not getting paid to take that risk. We would take some of those dollars and put them in large caps, because again those are the companies that have probably the most, you know, flexibility in terms of navigating this global environment.”

Art Cashin, director of floor operations at UBS Financial Services, is skeptical much progress was made at all.

“It’s all blue smoke and mirrors. There’s nothing substantive there. I mean, I admire Treasury Secretary [Steven] Mnuchin, and he’s talking about intellectual properties and whatnot. I’m getting different signals from China. They don’t look like they want that to be part of a plan, and they indicate they’re going to take care of it locally. Secondarily, so tomorrow the tariffs were supposed to be raised. If I’m a business, I’ve already traded against that. I knew they were coming up. I bought whatever I wanted back before they were going to get raised, so the impacts are not very strong here.”

Gabriela Santos, global market strategist at J.P. Morgan Asset Management, says it makes sense to keep expectations in check.

“It’s an agreement to postpone the escalation that was planned for tomorrow and to continue talking over the next few weeks. So for us, I think it’s right to temper the enthusiasm a little bit after such a huge rally we had on Friday. It’s not locked down. No. 2, even if we end up having a ‘phase one’ written-down truce, it doesn’t remove the uncertainty cloud going into the election. And No. 3, we have also some late-cycle concerns to think about which should come to the forefront as earnings season picks back up this week.”

Three before you leave — What to watch for Tuesday including the start of earnings season

Timothy A. Clary | Getty Images

Here are the most important things to know about Tuesday before you hit the door.

1. Bank earnings on deck

We’ll get quarterly earnings from the four largest U.S. banks with Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan Chase, Citigroup and Wells Fargo all reporting before the bell on Tuesday. Wall Street is expecting S&P 500 financial company earnings to drop 2.6% this quarter, according to FactSet, weighed down by the Federal Reserve lowering interest rates twice since July, which pressures bank’s main business of deposits and lending. Some analysts are anticipating disappointing results could come from this year’s over-valued unicorns including Uber’s anticlimactic market debut and pre-IPO bust of WeWork’s valuation. Goldman may take a $264 million write down on its 1.4% stake in WeWork, said Morgan Stanley analyst Betsy Graseck.

2. Overall earnings season kick off

The unofficial start of third-quarter earnings season kicks off on Tuesday. Earnings for the S&P 500 are expected to decline by 4.6% this quarter, after growing by more than 3% in the second quarter, according to FactSet. “Analysts expected declines for the past two quarters that failed to materialize, but the further slowdown in macro data could lead to the first EPS decline since the 2015-16 EPS recession,” said Bank of America equity and quant strategist Savita Subramanian said in a note to clients earlier this month. Along with the major banks, Dow Jones Industrial Average members Johnson & Johnson and UnitedHealth are set to report on Tuesday as well.

3. Manufacturing slump continues?

Four experts on what to watch on Wall Street next week

The markets wrapped a wild week with massive gains.

The announcement of a “phase-one” trade deal between the U.S. and China sent the Dow up nearly 319.92 points on Friday, while the S&P 500 rose 1.1% higher.

With earnings season kicking off in the coming days, four experts weigh in on what is on their watch list this week.

Alec Young, managing director of global markets research at FTSE Russell, says the U.S. needs to do away with tariffs for the markets to break out.

“We’ve been in kind of a trading range, but I think in order to break out of it and make new highs, you really need an end to the existing tariffs. That would be like a tax cut, basically something that’s weighing on corporate earnings. We’re going to go through a pretty weak corporate earnings season starting next week. The reason trade is so important is without a deal that ends existing tariffs, it’s very hard to believe that the forecast for 10% profit growth for 2020 are realistic.”

Jay Jacobs, head of research and strategy at Global X Funds, says investors are reaching their limits when it comes to volatility.

“Every day we see these two heavyweight forces duking it out in the markets. We see the Fed and central bank policy trying to support the markets and we see the trade wars; and you know sometimes negative, sometimes positive news as the other force. And what we’re seeing from our clients is people are really losing patience with this kind of volatility. We see a lot of people looking for yield from any source because that’s the way to get return in a flat or volatile market.”

Clete Willems of Akin Gump says the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement could have an even great impact than a China deal.

“I’m still hearing good things. In spite of everything going on with the impeachment proceedings and everything else, I’m still hearing good things about the engagement between the administration and the Hill. So USMCA though is important. In a lot of ways, the substance of that actually is going to be more economically meaningful in the short term than China and so that’s an important one too. So, I hope we can get both of these in a more stable place, a little more certainty for our businesses and that will help the economy going into 2020.”

Byron Wien of Blackstone Private Wealth says earnings have to improve before the market can see a stronger leg up.

“Look the market is always vulnerable to a 10% correction. But I don’t think the market is overvalued here. At these interest rates, I think the [S&P 500] can comfortably trade above 3000. How much more above 3000 it can get to really depends on earnings. Earnings have been disappointing. I don’t think earnings are going to be strong. I think we’ll be lucky to get a 5% earnings improvement in 2020. So I think the market has limited upside, but it does have some upside.”
