Just a reminder to folks that on its way to putting this lander down, India did successfully put its second spacecraft in orbit at the Moon. Chandrayaan-2 orbiter will be up there doing science for a year. Lander would only have lasted 2 weeks. https://t.co/i5VdnBPII4

Corte de OITENTA E SETE por cento! 87%!

No Brasil, o CNPq é (era?) o principal financiador das pesquisas brasileiras. Equipamentos, insumos, o dinheiro para manter laboratórios funcionando, tudo isso vem do CNPq.#pelacienciabrasileira#SomosTodosCNPq https://t.co/WHTVnIz4d0

Here is the iWander report (https://t.co/U7Xm93Vjmh) on the provenance of the new interstellar object C/2019 Q4.
For this, I use the present available orbit (JPL 4) (animation available at: https://t.co/3gg1WQSaCl, via @tony873004) CC @ProfAbelMendez @coreyspowell @EricMamajek pic.twitter.com/dUUmBLr2sO
