"Our solar neighborhood is a dynamic place where stars enter and exit that perfect vantage point to see Earth transit the Sun at a rapid pace," Faherty said.Within the star systems at the right distance and vantage point to observe Earth -- in the past, present and future -- seven are known by scientists to host exoplanets.
If there is life on these exoplanets and they have the ability to detect other planets the way that astronomers do on Earth, they could determine that Earth can host life.When a planet crosses in front of its star, the planet's atmosphere is essentially backlit. Read More..

I would estimate at an albedo of 0.01-0.08 a diameter of 130-370 kilometers (nominally 160) which puts it on a similar scale, if not larger than, Sarabat’s huge comet C/1729 P1 and almost undoubtedly the largest Oort Cloud object ever discovered- almost in dwarf planet territory!” Sam Deen, a citizen astronomer, said in a post on the Minor Planet Mailing List (MPML) forumThe object showed no coma in any of the (5 band) DES images between 2014-2018 (when it moved from 29 to 23 au)

Last week, speaking remotely for the Viva Technology conference, Apple CEO Tim Cook decried the language in the EU's proposed Digital Marketers Act, saying that it "would destroy the security of the iPhone and a lot of the privacy initiatives that we've built into the App Store." He also said that sideloading – allowed in the Android ecosystem – would do the same.Apple articulated that point at greater length in its paper, "Building a Trusted Ecosystem for Millions of Apps: The important role of App Store protections" [PDF]."By providing additional distribution channels, changing the threat model, and widening the universe of potential attacks, sideloading on iPhone would put all users at risk, even those who make a deliberate effort to protect themselves by only downloading apps through the App Store," Apple claims in its report.

Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson, who have repeatedly and publicly clashed while making these high-octane action movies, are seemingly at it again, with Diesel reigniting the feud by claiming his behavior was actually just a manipulation tactic all along, implemented in order to coax out the performance he wanted from Johnson.
