    The galaxy is not flat, researchers show in new 3D model of the Milky Way
    Six years of tracking a special class of star have yielded a new and improved 3D model of our galaxy, based on direct observation rather than theoretical frameworks. And although no one ever really thought the Milky Way was flat flat, the curves at its ed

    Crowdfunded spacecraft LightSail 2 prepares to go sailing on sunlight
    Among the many spacecraft and satellites ascending to space on Monday’s Falcon Heavy launch, the Planetary Society’s LightSail 2 may be the most interesting. If all goes well, a week from launch it will be moving through space — slowly,
