The BBC will stop inviting science deniers onto science programs.  In other words, they will stop , trying to create a false sense of balanced coverage by inviting comment from critics who oppose non-contentious issues.  Climate change, vaccines, and GMOs are mentioned specifically.

The Rosetta spacecraft will arrive at Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko in just about a month.  Already it is close enough for a low-resolution view of the asteroid tumbling in space. 
This is really getting exciting! ESA's Rosetta spacecraft (and the piggybacked Philae lander) are in the home stretch to arrive at Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko in 34 days and the comet is showing up quite nicely in Rosetta's narrow-angle camera. The animation above, assembled from 36 NAC images acquired last week, shows 67P/C-G rotating over a total elapsed time of 12.4…
