“There is a fine line between censorship and good taste and moral responsibility.” -Stephen Spielberg
Another week full of amazing science stories has gone by here at Starts With A Bang, and there are some fun and fantastic announcements! We welcomed a new contributor, Jess Shanahan, to our ranks; I found out that Forbes has made me their official Star Trek: Discovery reviewer when that new series premieres; I’m in the process of selecting the final, officially licensed images for my new book, Treknology (and pre-order today!); and from this coming Thursday through Sunday, I’ll be the Science Guest of Honor at NorWesCon in Seattle! Come if you can! Now, let’s take a look back at the past week of articles:

What’s the difference between a fermion and a boson? (for Ask Ethan),
Earth prepares to snap first-ever image of a black hole’s event horizon (for Mostly Mute Monday),
Saturn’s moon Enceladus is our closest great hope for life beyond Earth (by Jess Shanahan),
How much gold is in the James Webb Space Telescope?,
‘Project Blue’ aims to find planets around the nearest sun-like stars, and
Can muons — which live for just microseconds — save experimental particle physics?

Thanks ...
