It's now been a couple of weeks since Elon Musk and SpaceX launched the Falcon Heavy into space. Its payload, a Tesla Roadster with the now-famous Starman behind the wheel, will orbit the Sun for millions of years according to SpaceX, and you can bet that astronomers will be taking every opportunity to spot it whenever they can. The latest observation comes from the Virtual Telescope Project, which managed to capture the faint speck of light reflecting back towards Earth. The animated image above is the result of several photos that were captured on February 8th, just a couple of days after Starman's trip began. You can see the object quite well, but it's moving away from Earth at a rapid pace. The latest image, which you can see below, is the latest spotting of the Roadster, and it's much harder to see. A pair of red lines point at the distant Roadster, and you can barely see it at a normal resolution. Here's a zoomed-in version of the same image: "The telescope tracked it apparent motion across the stars, this is way they look like little trails," Gianluca Masi of the Virtual Telescope Project writes. "At the imaging time, the car was about 3.5 millions of km from us, that is 9 the mean lunar distance. We measured the brightness of the car, which resulted in mag. 21.0, that is 40 millions times fainter than the Polaris star." It won't be long before the Roadster and its passenger will be lost in the darkness, but because the car is in a Sun-centered orbit, it will regularly swing back around and occasionally come closer to Earth. In the distant future, the vehicle might even crash into Earth, Venus, or the Sun itself, but that won't happen for millions and millions of years. If you're interested in tracking the car's progress as it flies around the Solar System, a website has been set up for just that purpose. You can see where the object is in relation to Earth, Mars, and other Solar System landmarks, which is pretty nifty.

I don’t think I’d heard a word about “Angels in America” before I saw it in London. I had seen one play of Kushner’s, “A Bright Room Called Day,” and panned it. But I certainly knew about Declan Donnellan, who was directing, and it sounded interesting to me mainly because of the subject. It was […]
Does this week feel like it's crawling to anyone else? How could it only be Wednesday? If you're also having a tough time making it through this mid-February work week, you might want to distract yourself with a bunch of paid apps that are free on the App Store for a limited time.

The new Apple HomePod speaker has plenty of hype surrounding it right now, but let's be honest: it's not really any competition at all for Sonos. Apple might have a product worth talking about at some point down the road, but right now the HomePod is far too limited to even consider as a Sonos replacement. Sonos speakers feature incredible sound, great designs, and compatibility with a wide range of music services. Of course, there are always one or two additional services you wish would work — for me, it's Hype Machine (no, I don't want to pay for SoundCloud Go on top of everything else I already subscribe to). Sure you can plug your phone or computer into the aux-in on your Sonos speaker, but who wants to deal with cables in 2018? Grab an Mpow Bluetooth Receiver on Amazon for just $15, and you can stream anything you want to your Sonos speakers via Bluetooth, eliminating what may very well be the only real complain there is with Sonos speakers. Now for the bad news: only the Play:5, Connect, and Connect:Amp have line-in ports on the back, so you'll need one of those Sonos devices in order for this to work. But the good news is once you've connected to any of those devices, you'll be able to stream via Bluetooth to your entire Sonos system. Here's some more info from the product page: MPOW BLUETOOTH 4.1 RECEIVER:Built with Bluetooth 4.1/HFP/HSP/A2DP/AVRCP to smart your life that you can enjoy music and hands-free calling from your smartphone in premium-quality sound.Up to 33ft connection range guarantees low signal delay. DOUBLE LINKS & WIDE COMPATIBILITY: Mpow Portable Bluetooth Receiver can connect two Bluetooth devices at the same time.And it also could compatible with most smartphones and Bluetooth electronics, ideal for home or vehicle audio systems and wired headphones (connected with Mpow via 3.5mm audio cable/adapter then pair your phone with Mpow to achieve listening music or answering call). AUTOMATICALLY RECONNECT: Just turn on the Bluetooth of your cell phone first,and then turn on the Bluetooth receiver, the Mpow Bluetooth Receiver can be automatically paired. EXTRA-LONG BUILT-IN BATTERY: Provides up to 10 HOURS playing time and only need 1.5 HOURS to charge it fully.
