In this week’s Fed2 Star: No Fed2 Star next week, I failed to spot a bug in the new code, avoiding collisions in Mars orbit, astronomers mistake microwave for another galaxy, fooling people to enjoy cheap wine, artificial gravity, a dumb criminal, driving a moon buggy and the sun goes down on Mars. Plus Winding Down, Alan’s technical newsletter.
