There are a number of reasons to create a human outpost on Titan instead of Mars.

For one, Mars is a very inhospitable lifeless place, 1% Earth's atmosphere, and few resources. Although it once had more water than the Arctic ocean, it's lost 87% into space. Going there would be like going to a freezing desert with no air.

On Titan however, there is an atmosphere, and hydrocarbons everywhere. Liquid Methane lakes could be used to fuel anything we bring or build there. It' the only place in the solar system, other than on Earth has lakes.

There may even be methane based life there.

The Australian National University (ANU) is looking for people to help find the elusive planet 9.

Although there was a ninth planet discovered in 1930, it has been since then demoted to a dwarf planet.

This new hypothetical planet 9 could be a Super Earth, about ten times more massive. It would be somewhere between two to four time the diameter of the Earth.

Pluto was discovered in 1930 by American astronomer Clyde Tombaugh. It was considered the ninth planet from the Sun. In 1992 however, this became a question after several other objects similar in size to Pluto were discovered beyond it's orbit in what's known as the Kuiper belt.

The International Astronomical Union, the internationally recognized authority for assigning designations to celestial bodies made the controversial call, and destroying Pluto as a planet.

So far, the biggest advance in Augmented Reality has been from Pokemon GO. Some don't even consider that to even be AR.

AR is Virtual Reality blended with the real world.

Apple's CEO Tim Cook envisions the next generation of smartphones to be loaded with AR capabilities. Apple has assembled a team to not compete with next gen devices, but to dominate the market.

Bixby is the name, the New Samsung Galaxy S8 launching next week is the game.

This new AI assistant is going head to head with Amazon Echo and Apple Siri.

Of course there are other AI's out there, like Google Assistant, Microsoft Cortana, IBM Watson, and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg Jarvis.

What Samsung says is different about Bixby will be it's ability to work across multiple applications at the same time.

Microfossils called Hematites have been discovered in northern province of Quebec, Canada. Laser imaging showed that the may be the oldest form of life ever found.

These creatures are tiny, with a diameter half of a human hair, and up to half a millimeter in length.

There is a debate between scientists on the matter. Some are saying that the rocks these microfossils were found in are 3.77 billion years old, but other say they could be as old as 4.28 billion years.

That would put them on Earth a few 100 million years after the sun and Earth formed, before oxygen was present in Earth's atmosphere.

Not sure what the price of the ticket is, but considering the implication, does price really matter?

No one has been to the moon in over forty years. A lot of people don't even believe anyone has even been there at all.

NASA is currently studying the possibility of sending two people around the moon next year, well before they have planned.

Coincidently, one business day after NASA announced the plan to look at sending two people around the moon in 2018, Elon Musk announces the plan to send two tourists around the moon.

Who would bankroll such a trip? Who could? Is it even possible?

The Sun is a 4.6 billion year old yellow dwarf star at the center of the Solar System.

Although it's a dwarf, compared to the Earth, the sun is huge. You would need to line up 109 Earths, side by side to equal the Suns diameter. It has the mass of 330,000 Earths.

It formed from a molecular cloud that collapsed under gravity, into a nearly perfect sphere, made of hot plasma.

It contains 99.86% of the mass of entire Solar System. The rest of the stuff flattened into a disk that formed the planets.

The center became so hot and dense that it initiated nuclear fusion.

It's 73% hydrogen and 23% helium. The rest is a mix of heavier elements like carbon, oxygen, and iron, stuff that people are made of.
