A British woman suffering from debilitating back pain for many years is claiming she was healed by the spirit of a doctor who was alive in the 19th century.
The Hubble Space Telescope has found that largest smiley face ever discovered…in a galaxy cluster 4.5 billion light years from earth.
Sure, this is ultimately a meaningless arrangement of photons that only humans are likely to post endlessly about, but it does offer a fun opportunity to discuss some interesting phenomena.
