In 2019, when Wolf Cukier finished his junior year at Scarsdale High School in New York, he joined NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, as a summer intern. His job was to examine variations in star brightness captured by NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) and uploaded to the Planet Hunters TESS citizen science project.

The legendary athlete & greatest member of the Lakers, Kobe Bryant, passed away after a helicopter crash in SoCal. He was only 41. His daughter also died in the incident at only 13. The most shocking death of a good person in 2020 & among the most shocking for all of sports & especially basketball. This should be way higher for such reason. It became 1 of the top biggest highlights of 2020 & the 21st century. R.I.P. Kobe Bryant (& his daughter) 1978-2020.

When Vine was launched, it gained a lot of usage from millions. It was an app with 6 second looping videos. Unfortunately Twitter killed it off after 4 years. TikTok (which has 15-60 second looping videos) seemed to try replacing it though it failed at that. Thankfully the original creator practically brought it back with Byte, a new app with looping videos also 6 seconds long & has monetization which is a key part to why a lack of led to Vine shutting down. R.I.P. Vine 2013-2017 & welcome back (Byte).
