Space peanut? We were able to use our Earth-based radio telescopes to produce images of a peanut-shaped asteroid as it safely passed our planet from around 4.5 million miles away. This asteroid won’t pass by the Earth again until 2054. Find out more: http://go.nasa.gov/1JVQJwD #NASABeyond

Started one of my updates this morning 😊 [from the article] Windows 10 is now running on over 14 million devices, Microsoft announced in a blog post on Thursday. According to Microsoft Corporate Vice President of Windows and the Devices Group Yusuf Mehdi, that number will only continue to grow over time as Microsoft makes Windows 10 available to more users in the coming days and weeks.

The operating system is being launched to current Windows 7 and Windows 8 users in phases, so the number of devices now running Windows 10 will rise steadily in the coming days as more users get access to the platform.

[from the article] In 2011, Google began developing Project Loon, an experimental program to provide free internet access to people in remote rural areas, using high-altitude balloons floating in the stratosphere. After test runs in New Zealand, Brazil, and the US, Project Loon is finally ready to…balloon. In 2016, Google will deploy balloons all over Sri Lanka, filling in its coverage gaps and effectively blanketing the entire island nation with broadband internet.

Each balloon covers up to 25 miles (40 km) in diameter on the ground.

[from the article] Yesterday, Harvard University’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering announced in a press release that researchers from Harvard and Seoul National University (South Korea) have developed a robotic insect which  mimics the water-walking capabilities of an insect known as the “water strider”.

Researchers used hundreds of videos of water striders to determine the mechanics involved in being able to leap from dry land onto water and vice versa.

I've found "ask Cortana" to be very useful. What's your favorite new feature on Windows 10?

Twenty years ago was the first confirmation of a planet orbiting a star outside our solar system. This discovery launched a whole new field in astronomical research. Today, there are more than 1,800 confirmed planets outside our solar system. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1Ud87Eu #NASABeyond

I don't often share press articles about our products – they rarely seem to say much of use – but this was just such a good case of a journalist Getting It Right that I had to share. Google+ is very much alive, and our recent changes are focused on making it be the best product it can be for what it's best at: helping people meet people and have great conversations about things they're passionate about. 

One particularly noteworthy thing in this article is its discussion of the "majority illusion:" people tend to assume that their friends are typical of the wider world, but almost by definition they aren't – for one thing, they all have one uncommon attribute in common, which is being your friend in the first place. And since people don't choose their friends randomly from the entire spectrum of humanity, one's friends are always a distorted sample. 

So yes, we have here a tech press article which (correctly) uses an important result in cognitive psychology to explain why lots of tech press articles are nonsense.

Portland,OR [From the article] Thirteen protestors rappelled off the city’s tallest bridge, with 13 others remaining on the bridge as lookouts, according to the Associated Press.

The activists are equipped with food and water for days and are capable of hoisting themselves up to allow other ships to pass, said Annie Leonard, executive director of Greenpeace USA.


Greenpeace activists are hoping to delay or halt Arctic exploration.
