Fed2 Star Index

In this week’s Fed2 Star: Last week’s US clock change, this week’s list of abandoned star systems, I recommend the new movie Chappie, there’s a solar eclipse on Friday, artificial lights help health in long dark winters, dogs can distinguish between facial expressions, the most undiplomatic diplomat, chocolate to combat wrinkles and imaginary faces seen on planets. Plus Winding Down, Alan’s technical newsletter.
