Discovery is on it’s way!

The space shuttle Discovery is on it’s way to the International Space Station. It looks as though the launch went smoothly this morning. About 8 minutes into the flight, looks like the shuttle will reach main engine cut-off in another few minutes.

Typo or time-travel?

I was reading this article on Yahoo! News and came across the following paragraph, quoted verbatim:

He added that some Russian scientists who violated this ban have been punished — an apparent reference to Valentin Danilov, a physicist who was convicted of spying for China in 2014. Danilov pleaded innocent to the charges, saying the information on satellites he provided was not classified and that he had published some of it in scientific magazines.

Does the above paragraph contain a typo? Or will the event referred to take place a little more than seven years from now?
