    Quite fascinating AND endlessly remarkable.

    And costly beyond measure.

    We Yanks have to provide opportunities for people trained in STEM (science, technology, etc).

    Without a supply of such people, our war-making powers would atrophy.

    Astronomers have discovered that the ring system that they see eclipse the very young Sun-like star J1407 is of enormous proportions, much larger and heavier than the ring system of Saturn.

    A list that's unfortunately necessary: Beall's List of Predatory, Open-Access Publishers -- companies that masquerade as publishers of respected journals, but are actually vanity presses, printing articles for virtually anyone who'll pay their high fees, with sham or nonexistent "peer review".
