While Voyager 2's exit took place in November of last year, and the included video is dated from December 2018, the exit of the craft from the Heliosphere, and entry into interstellar space (just as the craft's sibling - Voyager 1 did in late summer of 2012) is still very much a newsworthy item hereabouts. Simply Outstanding.

"Two young scientists at the University of Washington School of Medicine developed a software program called DeepSqueak, which lifts this technological barrier and promotes broad adoption of rodent vocalization research...." This program takes an audio signal and transforms it into an image, or sonogram..." - via Bobbi Nodell, reporting for the University of Washington School of Medicine's
Incroyable! Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers have developed what could very well be the 'holy grail' of submarine-to-surface communications. Monikered TARF, the system ostensibly converts SONAR to RADAR with no mid-processing steps required. Absolutely superb work, and today's Must Read.
Not the Alice and Bob we know running and frolicking along and about various and sundry paths to Security Nirvana, oh no me prtetties, but the Alice and Bob of mathematics, blackholes, paradoxes and whatnot... Examine - if you will - what happens when the pair meet the ultimate firewall - Today's Must Read.
News via the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) of NIST physicists efforts to cool down a component has yeilded an unexpected result. The effort utilized squeezed light (microwaves within an electromagnetic cavity, if you will) to cool the apparatus below the theoretical limit, in this case, below the so-called quantum limit.
