Last Enceladus Plume Observation
This movie sequence of images is from the last dedicated observation of the Enceladus plume by NASA's Cassini spacecraft.

The images were obtained over approximately 14 hours as Cassini's cameras stared at the active, icy moon. The view during the entire sequence is of the moon's night side, but Cassini's perspective Enceladus shifts during the sequence. The movie begins with a view of the part of the surface lit by reflected light from Saturn and transitions to completely unilluminated terrain. The exposure time of the images changes about halfway through the sequence, in order to make fainter details visible. (The change also makes background stars become visible.)

Enceladus is Saturn's sixth largest moon, only 157 miles (252 km) in mean radius, but it's one of the most scientifically compelling bodies in our solar system. Hydrothermal vents spew water vapor and ice particles from an underground ocean beneath the icy crust of Enceladus. This plume of material includes organic compounds, volatile gases, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, salts and silica.

Electric zap ‘wakes’ man after 15 years in a vegetative state | New Scientist

'... Sirigu’s team hypothesised that stimulating the vagus nerve would increase activity in brain regions that could help the man regain consciousness. “I believe that’s what happened,” says Sirigu.
Constant stimulation

To test the idea, the team wrapped very thin electrodes around the vagus nerve in the man’s neck. He was monitored for a month before the nerve was stimulated. They then treated him continuously over six months. Each treatment involved 30 seconds of stimulation followed by 5 minutes of rest. The team started with an electrical current of 0.25 milliamperes, increasing by 0.25 mA a week up to 1.5 mA.

Clinicians regularly monitored changes in the man’s behaviour throughout the trial, while Sirigu’s team recorded EEG signals from the scalp before stimulation began and at points throughout the trial. They also scanned the man’s brain using positron emission tomography immediately after the electrodes were implanted and six months later.

As soon as the stimulation started, the man began to open his eyes more often. After a month, he began to track people around the room with his eyes. He was even able to respond to requests to turn his head from one side to the other. He also attempted to follow an instruction to smile.The team have not yet used these movements to ask him questions, such as whether he is in any pain.

His scores on the “coma recovery scale” suggested he could now be defined as being in a minimally conscious state – in which a person has partial conscious awareness.

The man has not regained the ability to talk or walk, which he is unlikely to do, given the large damage to his brain. The team are continuing to track his progress.

Officials are supposed to use government emails for their official duties so their conversations are available to the public & those conducting oversight.

The Eagle Nebula from Kitt Peak
Image Credit: T. A. Rector & B. A. Wolpa, NOAO, AURA

Explanation: From afar, the whole thing looks like an Eagle. A closer look at the Eagle Nebula, however, shows the bright region is actually a window into the center of a larger dark shell of dust.

Through this window, a brightly-lit workshop appears where a whole open cluster of stars is being formed. In this cavity tall pillars and round globules of dark dust and cold molecular gas remain where stars are still forming.

Already visible are several young bright blue stars whose light and winds are burning away and pushing back the remaining filaments and walls of gas and dust.

The Eagle emission nebula, tagged M16, lies about 6500 light years away, spans about 20 light-years, and is visible with binoculars toward the constellation of the Serpent (Serpens).

This picture combines three specific emitted colors and was taken with the 0.9-meter telescope on Kitt Peak, Arizona, USA.

Welp, my 6P took a dump tonight and went into bootloop. It suddenly froze on my way home from work, so I held the power button to reboot it. The Google logo came up for about 20 seconds, then went away, and then instead of seeing the colorful dancing dots, I got the Google logo again.

When I got home, I started a support chat with a nice Project Fi rep, who talked me through getting into the recovery menu, wiping the cache, and then factory resetting, neithe of which worked. She told me that the only remaining option would be to ship a replacement device. I expressed concern about getting another 6P that might have this well documented issue, and she said that my replacement device would be a 128 GB Pixel XL!

Project Fi has had the best customer support of any phone carrier I've ever been with. Their reps are courteous and willing to help you solve their issue. They also clue in really quick on the fact that I'm not a total noob. They actually work with me on solving the problem, as opposed to other call centers that slavishly stick to a script and require me to perform all the usual troubleshooting steps that I already did before contacting them.

This will be my fourth device since joining Project Fi. My first 6P had a microphone issue. My second got dropped and broke the screen, which was covered by the Device Protection plan and required a reasonable deductible to fix. This one ran very well until I got the Oreo update last week, when things started to get a little squirrelly.

I gotta say, I will miss the front facing stereo speakers on the 6P. But it's a small loss considering that, at no cost to me, I'm being upgraded to a phone with twice the storage that will continue to get software updates where the old one will not. (I am a little miffed that they didn't let me choose the color, as I've never liked phones with white front bezels, but that's what dbrand is for, right?)

Cassini's Last Ring Portrait at Saturn
How should Cassini say farewell to Saturn? Three days before plunging into Saturn's sunny side, the robotic Cassini spacecraft swooped far behind Saturn's night side with cameras blazing. Thirty-six of these images have been merged -- by an alert and adept citizen scientist -- into a last full-ring portrait of Cassini's home planet for the past 13 years.

The Sun is just above the frame, causing Saturn to cast a dark shadow onto its enormous rings. This shadow position cannot be imaged from Earth and will not be visible again until another Earth-launched spaceship visits the ringed giant. Data and images from Cassini's mission-ending dive into Saturn's atmosphere on September 15 continue to be analyzed.

LG V30 comes with a free, yet-unannounced new Daydream View VR headset in the US

Although it's proudly announced the phone's rollout commenced last week, LG still hasn't unveiled when exactly you can expect the V30 to reach the United States. We hope that's going to happen sooner, rather than later, but for now there's no official word.

What a new leaked promo image reveals, however, is that if you wait for the V30 you will be treated to an interesting freebie. Buying the V30 in the US will apparently net you a free Google Daydream VR headset - but not the one launched last year, mind you. We're talking about the new, yet to be unveiled 2017 model which itself got leaked a few days ago.

Confusingly, what's depicted in the image above is the 2016 Daydream View, but famed leakster Evan Blass assures us that LG means the new accessory, not the old one. As you can see, you will also receive a "VR Content Package by Google" which is worth around $45 (since the rumored recommended price for the new headset is $99).

LG seems pretty happy to embrace Google's VR platform, now that it's finally launching a Daydream- capable smartphone in the V30.
