I am, somehow, less interested in the weight and convolutions of Einstein’s brain than in the near certainty that people of equal talent have lived and died in cotton fields and sweatshops. - Stephen J. Gould

There's an announcement about something astronomical today
via @RoyalAstroSco
You may have heard a rumour that we're announcing something big this afternoon - well of course we want you to be the first to know what's going on so stayed tuned here. At 4pm this video https://youtu.be/5IIj3e5BFp0 will go live and we'll also be live-streaming our press conference.

- embargo ends at 1500UT and the RAS News explainer begins:


Also, BBC's Sky @Night is held over from yesterday to 2130UT today where "behind the headlines" reports will emerge.

Anticipation is high (but don't forget, it's never aliens - even though there is much and increasing chatter about microbes in the atmosphere/clouds of Venus)... :plot:

Plus this from @animalculum to give some context about planetary phosphine.
