    Astronomical handy.

    With the internet connection back to SpaceX you can turn off the exposure when a Starlink constellation is passing by. They are still working on the motorised altazimuth mount.

    A new extremely high-resolution image of the star Betelgeuse shows its actual disk in
    December 2019. It appears to be dimmer in its lower half, which is likely tied to its recent
    dimming to less than 40% of its normal brightness. Credit: ESO/M. Montargès et al.

    NASA Found Exotic Organic Molecules on Ancient Space Object 'Arrokoth'

    The latest data from ancient "Arrokoth," the most distant object ever visited
    by spacecraft, supports the idea that it's covered in organic molecules called
    "tholins" and gives us a window into deep cosmic time.

    Pretty hairy new kit. Of course, there still exist geometrical configurations which elude exoplanet detection by radial velocity methods and by transit methods.

    Go on, have a think.

    Milky Way is much more massive than thought and touches Andromeda.

    I think she's up to two trillion stars now.

    This is starting to look like Galactic Imperialism. A few years ago we were Andromeda's little cousin.

    I would be interested to know more about this Anton Petrov Wonderful Person. Who is he: what are his qualifications, where does he get his stuff. Aside from his irritating manner, it's quite interesting.

    I'm imagining a comedy script featuring a neo-Copernican and someone espousing this new finding. Accusations of religious bias and of broken telescopes...
