    I think this movie by the Coen Brothers is a bit under-appreciated, maybe because they did so many great movies afterwards. A nice little comedy starring Paul Newman, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Tim Robbins. Not an Oscar movie, won't change your life, but worth watching.
  • "Half a year after Russia's invasion of Ukraine, the implications of this war for the European space industry have been profound.

  • NASA's DART mission, launched on a SpaceX Falcon 9 last year, will hit its target at 7:14 p.m. EDT on Monday, Sept. 26. This test will show a spacecraft can autonomously navigate to a target asteroid and intentionally collide with it to change the asteroid’s motion in a way that can be measured using ground-based telescopes. DART will provide important data to help better prepare for an asteroid that might pose an impact hazard to Earth, should one ever be discovered. https://www.nasa.gov/press-release/nasa-invites-media-to-witness-world-s-first-planetary-defense-test
