Deborah delivers the headlines of the past few days. First up, a new word for you, galactoseismology. It’s the study of galaxy-wide quakes in our Milky Way. At the end … a stirring new video on the dramatic upright landing of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket, in December. This Sunday, SpaceX will try again for an upright rocket landing at sea.
