Particles from outer space are wreaking low-grade havoc on personal electronics

You may not realize it but alien subatomic particles raining down from outer space are
wreaking low-grade havoc on your smartphones, computers and other personal electronic devices.

When your computer crashes and you get the dreaded blue screen or your smartphone freezes and you have to go through the time-consuming process
of a reset, most likely you blame the manufacturer: Microsoft or Apple or Samsung. In many instances, however, these operational failures may be
caused by the impact of electrically charged particles generated by cosmic rays that originate outside the solar system.

NASA's Dawn mission has found evidence for organic material on Ceres, a dwarf planet and the largest body in the main asteroid belt between Mars and
Jupiter. Scientists using the spacecraft's visible and infrared mapping spectrometer (VIR) detected the material in and around a northern-hemisphere
crater called Ernutet. Organic molecules are interesting to scientists because they are necessary, though not sufficient, components of life on Earth.

ESO Awards Contract to Polish the ELT Tertiary Mirror | ESO United Kingdom

ESO has now awarded the contract to polish the third mirror in the light path, known as M3, to the French company Reosc, a subsidiary of Safran Electronics & Defense.
They will receive the blank from SCHOTT, design the mirror and its mounting interfaces, polish the surface, and complete all necessary optical tests before delivery.
Reosc were also awarded the contracts to design, polish and test the telescope’s secondary mirror in July 2016, and to manufacture the deformable shell mirrors that
will comprise the ELT’s fourth mirror (M4).

Signs of alien life could be spotted on this exoplanet 'map' | WIRED UK

The Carnegie Institution of Science has released its dataset to the public,

This image was captured by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope’s Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS), a highly efficient wide-field camera covering the optical and near-infrared parts
of the spectrum. While this lovely image contains hundreds of distant stars and galaxies, one vital thing is missing — the object Hubble was actually studying at the time!

This is not because the target has disappeared. The ACS actually uses two detectors: the first captures the object being studied — in this case an open star cluster known as NGC 299 —
while the other detector images the patch of space just ‘beneath’ it. This is what can be seen here.

Catalog Page for PIA21382

NASA's Juno spacecraft soared directly over Jupiter's south pole when JunoCam acquired this image on February 2, 2017
at 6:06 a.m. PT (9:06 a.m. ET), from an altitude of about 62,800 miles (101,000 kilometers) above the cloud tops.

This image was processed by citizen scientist John Landino. This enhanced color version highlights the bright high clouds and numerous meandering oval
storms. Away from the polar region, the seeming chaos of Jupiter's polar region gives way to the more familiar color banding that Jupiter is known for.
