It’s all shooting, RIP, and birthday threads. Nothing like celebrating another year closer to death, eh?

How bout some uplifting news:

Scientists are preparing to launch the world's first machine to clean up the planet's largest mass of ocean plastic.

All I do is VR and Work. Theres like 1 person here with VR and I'm pretty much a hermit these days. Outside of our e-sports shit and work my only positive news is VR related most the time. :D


Speaking of. BoxVR is seriously a great game. Highly recommend checking it out. Fantastic workout (Fuck a gym), lots of fun, and the music engine is fantastic for making maps to play.

There’s plenty of good news out there but good news doesn’t make headlines and are probably so plentiful that it seems almost routine. If we all started posting nonstop threads about baby/pet photos, motivational quotes, and YOLO things, I’d probably kill myself.

Another satellite launched recently is TESS. It's paving the way for the James Webb Space Telescope, which will replace the Hubble and is some 20x more powerful.

TESS carries four 16.8-megapixel cameras, each fitted with four red-sensitive CCD detectors, designed to detect planets transiting in front of their host stars. The cameras will search for brief dips in starlight to find the planets, and sophisticated software algorithms will allow astronomers to scan wide swaths of the sky once full-frame images are downlinked to Earth.

During TESS’s two-year, $337 million mission, the MIT-built cameras will survey more than 85 percent of the sky, looking at approximately 200,000 pre-selected bright, nearby stars, including the 6,000 or so stars that are visible to the naked eye in the night sky.

TESS will primarily look at M-dwarf stars, which are smaller and cooler than the sun, and make up the majority of the stars in the Milky Way galaxy. Also called red dwarfs, the stars that are TESS’s focus have not been thoroughly investigated to determine whether they harbor their own solar systems.
