Scientists have just discovered a new, very important reason for you to get a good night’s sleep. For the first time, they’ve actually been able to see the brain physically cleaning itself while you’re catching Zzz’s! Anthony explains how this cerebral garbage disposal system works.

An Epic New View of Earth – From one million miles away, the DSCOVR satellite returned its first view of the entire sunlit side of Earth.
It was December 7, 1972 when NASA last captured a photo of Earth in its entirety, and the picture, named Blue Marble, may well be one of the most reproduced images in history. In the last forty or so years, New York magazine notes, “scientists have produced new photos of earth, but they have been composites. It is exceedingly difficult for the sun to sit still long enough to make sure the entire planet is illuminated.”
But finally, the heavens and scientific advancement have united to bring us this gift. Thanks to the Deep Space Climate Observatory’s Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC), located one million miles away (mind-blowing, amirite?), we’ll be getting many more glorious photos like the one pictured above. All the while, scientists will study changes made apparent by these images and researching the ways we’re jeopardizing the planet’s well-being.

Stephen Hawking launches biggest-ever search for alien life -British cosmologist Stephen Hawking has launched the biggest-ever search for intelligent extraterrestrial life in a 10-year, $135 million project to scan the heavens. Hawking has always believed that we should look into space to try to find other life forms to which he strongly believes that it would insure the survival of the human race.
According to ABC News, Russian Silicon Valley entrepreneur Yuri Milner, who is funding the Breakthrough Listen initiative, said it would be the most intensive scientific search ever undertaken for signs of extraterrestrial intelligent life.
“In an infinite universe, there must be other occurrences of life,” Mr Hawking said at the launch event at the Royal Society science academy in London.
“Somewhere in the cosmos, perhaps, intelligent life may be watching.
“Either way, there is no bigger question.
“It’s time to commit to finding the answer, to search for life beyond Earth. We must know.”
Do you think this is a good idea? Do you believe in Aliens?

According to (CNN) The first human footprint on the moon. The landing of the Curiosity rover on Mars. NASA scientists put the significance of the New Horizons spacecraft flyby of Pluto on Tuesday right up there with those milestones.
The most beautiful part may come Wednesday, when the images that the craft took and transmitted back to Earth are released.
They will be from the closest point the probe came to the dwarf planet as it made its milestone in space exploration history.

According to NPR, Venus and Jupiter are only converging into a small area of the Earth’s sky. NASA says the two bright planets will be “a jaw-dropping one-third of a degree apart.”
That distance is smaller than the width of a full moon, as seen from Earth’s surface.
“You’ll be able to hide the pair not just behind the palm of your outstretched hand, but behind your little pinky finger,” NASA says.
And unlike some other astronomical phenomena, this convergence should be easily visible: Just look to the west around sunset. That’s where you’ll find Venus and Jupiter, if the sky is relatively clear.
“Conjunctions between Venus and Jupiter are far from rare events,” notes Space.com. But the site adds that tonight’s “unusually close” conjunction is worth seeing — and it adds that this is both the closest and the last pairing between the two planets in the current 24-year cycle.
