In memory of Gene Cernan, the last Astronaut to set foot on the moon, who passed away yesterday, I have a requested a crowd-demand screening of the documentary "Last Man on the Moon".

This screening will be held in my home state - South Australia in Adelaide at the Marion Event Cinema Complex.

All I need is at least 58 people to commit to attend the screening at Marion Cinemas ( FEB 22nd 7.00 PM) and the screening will go ahead.

Please share this event link around everywhere to register your attendance.

Faster Web Pages on Android
Today we're starting to roll out support for Accelerated Mobile Pages (https://www.ampproject.org/) in the new Google+ Android app (version 9.2). Now when you browse G+ on Android, look for the little lightning bolt icon to load articles up to 4x faster and using up to 10x less data.

As always, please send us your ideas/issues using our Send Feedback menu item as that's the best way to ensure we'll see them. Thanks~

Bringing the new Google+ to more people

Last November, (http://goo.gl/Yn6mjA) we introduced a preview on web of a fully redesigned Google+ to make it easier for people to discover and connect around unique and interesting things. From a Japanese astronaut sharing his experience in the International Space Station (http://goo.gl/x5Kct9) to food lovers sharing their passion for breadmaking (http://goo.gl/yZuAeV), people are using Google+ to explore their interests more than ever.

Since introducing the new version, twice as many Collections are followed per day and there are 1.6 million daily new Community joins. Many of you have also shared feedback and requests, and we’ve been listening (http://goo.gl/XA6tuH).

Today, we’re announcing three new updates for Google+.

First, some new features. You can now have richer conversations by adding links and photos to your comments. We’re also offering Community owners and moderators more control over who posts what with approved posting. Finally, we're launching a new notifications center on the web where you can see and manage your recent activity on Google+. These features will be available across the web, Android and iOS in the coming weeks.

Second, if you haven’t yet previewed the new Google+, over the next few days we’ll upgrade you to the experience when you sign in on the web. You’ll still be able to toggle back to classic Google+ for the time being.

Finally, businesses have told us that they’ve found Google+ to be a valuable way to help employees share ideas and expertise via Collections and Communities, and we’re looking forward to making it available to more organizations. Today, Google Apps users already using Google+ (http://goo.gl/GxGRXo) will also see the new experience (goo.gl/IJtbah) when they sign in and in the next few weeks, Google+ will become a core Google for Work service.

From the interesting (http://goo.gl/foWZX2), to the surprising (http://goo.gl/l5cDBt), and the delightful (goo.gl/gix7s6), we hope Google+ continues to help you discover amazing things from passionate people.

OPINION: Kelly O'Dwyer's considered response on Q&A to questions about the rich versus poor divide neatly illustrates what this election, in economic terms, is really all about, writes Michael Bradley.

I am quite curious to find out what the future holds for us with all these corporations/organisations (not just NASA) actively focussing on the development of super-/hypersonic jets. As well as making them more silent when they breach the sound barrier.

How fast will we go (in due time)?
