Jupiter got a new profile picture taken by Hubble!

This new Hubble Space Telescope view of Jupiter, taken on June 27, 2019, reveals the giant planet’s trademark Great Red Spot, and a more intense color palette in the clouds swirling in Jupiter’s turbulent atmosphere than seen in previous years. The colors, and their changes, provide important clues to ongoing processes in Jupiter’s atmosphere.

Are we being exposed to unhealthy levels of radiation from our phones

Kurzgesagt did a nice video on the topic:

Almost more valuable than the video is the amount of research that was gathered and made available here . If you are ever looking for information to enlighten people about this, this here is pure gold.

Also some nice arguments should you ever encounter one of those panicky people and their wonderful pseudo-scientific arguments.
