Space Features of the Week (27 November)

A lot of interesting things in the news this week. Even though some are not per se “new”, I found them quite captivating both in terms of implications and for the questions they raised. Answers will follow – in due time. Instead of making a traditional summary, this time I have preferred just mentioning them, provide a link and include my┬ácomments, so that you can go & pick the chosen ones.

What are we going to do with incoming asteroidsneural-network

[Asteroid science is particularly hot at the moment – from destroying to mining them, there’s something for anybody.]

The first photonic neural network is here

[Wow – what else to say?]
