In July 2022, the Webb Space Telescope detected an intense jet shooting across the equator of Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system. Webb Telescope Images the Pillars of CreationAstronomers knew east-west jets existed in the gas giant’s atmosphere, but analysis of the newly spotted fast-moving jet suggested that Jupiter’s gassy insides may be more dynamic than previously thought. Webb Space Telescope launched from French Guiana in December 2021; it has been making scientific observations of the cosmos since July 2022, following a months-long commissioning process. The recent images of Jupiter that revealed the jet stream were taken with Webb’s Near-Infrared Camera, which revealed that parts of Jupiter’s atmosphere were disturbed by the jet’s motion.

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast / GettyGwyneth Paltrow is the latest celebrity to unleash dubious skin-care products they would probably never use themselves onto the world. Earlier this week, she started a press tour to promote her new, affordable skin care line called good.goop.clean. It’s arguably a pretty big deal that Goop, once synonymous with rich, white women and exclusivity, is being made available to us poors at Target and on Amazon. Just last year, the Shakespeare in Love star made the dim-witted statement (while talking to fellow NB, Hailey Bieber) that nepo babies have to work “twice as hard” as average people with no industry connections. And now, she seems to think that making it as an actor is comparable to getting a medical degree.

As climate change intensifies extreme heat, farms are becoming less hospitable to nesting birds, a new study found. The study concluded that species of higher conservation concern in the U.S. — those closer to being listed as federally threatened or endangered — were more vulnerable to extreme heat events in agricultural settings. But across the board, birds in forests were 14% more likely to achieve reproductive success in times of extreme heat. However, Rosenberg cautioned that more data might be needed to confirm that species of higher conservation concern were more vulnerable, since the overwhelming majority of the data involved species of low conservation concern. The researchers predicted how different bird species might fare in each landscape during extreme heat events.

It struck Scorsese, then in post-production on “Goodfellas,” as a curious thing for such a master filmmaker to say. Even now, Scorsese says he’s just realizing the possibilities of cinema. “I’ve lived long enough to be his age and I think I understand now,” Scorsese said in a recent interview. Scorsese considers “Killers of the Flower Moon” “an internal spectacle." He wrote a story about betrayal of trust.”“Killers of the Flower Moon” for Scorsese grew out of a period of reflection and reevaluation during the pandemic.

Historically, they are generally considered too toxic and expensive for use in agriculture and food science. Now, researchers from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign have developed a nanozyme that is organic, non-toxic, environmentally friendly, and cost effective.

Archer: Into the Cold will air December 17 on FX and FXX (where it’s been since 2017), before moving to Hulu the following day. Let us know what you’ve thought of the show and its long tenure in the comments below.
