Kepler Telescope Lost & Found

Over the past week or so, it looked like the Kepler telescope finally broke down for good. Luckily, it somehow recovered and may be able to run again. It’s already well past its original mission length but there’s still plenty of data to take if it’s able to. Even if it can’t take good data again, Kepler has already allowed scientists to make huge advances in the field of exoplanets (i.e. planets outside our solar system).

Obama in Cuba

The president is in Havana right now for the first presidential visit to Cuba in nearly 90 years. It’s still surprising at how quickly things are moving right now. It’s still illegal for US citizens to just go to Cuba for vacations but it seems pretty likely that that will change soon.
