The low density of some exoplanets is confirmed
https://phys.org/news/2019-06-density-exoplanets.html

The Kepler mission and its extension, called K2, discovered thousands of exoplanets. It detected them using the transit technique, measuring the dip in light intensity whenever an orbiting planet moved across the face of its host star as viewed from Earth. Transits can not only measure the orbital period, they often can determine the size of the exoplanet from the detailed depth and shape of its transit curve and the host star's properties. The transit method, however, does not measure the mass of the planet. The radial velocity method, by contrast, which measures the wobble of a host star under the gravitational pull of an orbiting exoplanet, allows for the measurement of its mass. Knowing a planet's radius and mass allows for the determination of its average density, and hence clues to its composition.

'Living drug' offers hope to terminal blood cancer patients
https://www.bbc.com/news/health-48706822

NHS patients with lymphoma have for the first time been given a pioneering treatment that genetically reprogrammes their immune system to fight cancer.

Mike Simpson, 62, from Durham, says his cancer is now "on the run".

The therapy, called CAR-T, is a "living drug" that is tailor-made for each patient using their body's own cells

How Measles Detectives Work To Contain An Outbreak
https://khn.org/news/how-measles-detectives-work-to-contain-an-outbreak/

On any given day, more than 4,000 people pass through the library at California State University-Los Angeles.

On April 11, one of them had measles. The building has only one entrance, which means that anyone who entered or exited the library within two hours of that person’s visit potentially was exposed to one of the most contagious diseases on Earth.

What is she thinking?







Rules of the game:

Winner posts a new picture, waits 24 hours...

After the 24 hours, he/she counts the number of captions, if the sum is less than ten, he/she waits another 24...

After ten captions or NO LATER THAN 48 hours, the winner of the last round declares the winner of the current round - whatever caption strikes him/her as funniest: he/she also picks a second and third place (more on that below.)

The winner of the round has 24 hours to post another picture to be captioned; if no picture within the 24 hours, (or notice posted by the winner that he/she is looking...) then second place is up, who also has 24 hours...

During breaks in the action, (between a winner being declared and the next picture posted) general discussion may take place... Moderators should be aware that a picture posting may cross with a "general discussion" type posting.

5 years in and another report. Malaysia lies if the report is true.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 'disintegrated into confetti,' captain appears to have run ‘amok,' report says
https://www.foxnews.com/world/malaysia-airlines-flight-370-disintegrated-into-confetti-in-crash-where-captain-may-have-run-amok-report-reveals

The ill-fated Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 was piloted by a "lonely and sad" captain who experimented with a flight profile almost identical to the aircraft's final doomed path -- one that left a slim chance of finding remains or clues to what really happened in the skies that calamitous evening, a new report reveals.
