In this week’s Fed2 Star: testing code to change planet file lists, make sure your emails to us don’t get lost, photo shows alien figure on Mars, Curiosity’s gas detector converted for Earth use, New Horizons photographs Pluto, unboiling an egg, selfie-takers are psychos (maybe), what wannabe writers don’t need and a video of Huygens descending to Titan. Plus Winding Down, Alan’s technical newsletter.
