I was thinking that too, but at least it won't be up there for very long (very low ratio of mass to cross sectional area, so its orbit will decay faster than a more typical satellite at that altitude).  

That actually goes with one of the main objectives of the mission (besides being bright for the sake of being bright), which is to test the feasibility of de-orbiting debris in the future by using these thin sails.

Here's an odd fish eye. I won't go crazy with more.

And Bernard's Star too: http://phl.upr.edu/press-releases/barnard

Most likely strong radio signals along with highly magnetized planets.

However if it is planets, that brings the number of exoplanets up to 20 or so within 5 parsecs.

20 planets? Wow.

Planet detection by their radio emissions is pretty fantastic. I hope this technique can be refined to stand alongside transit and radial velocity as a reliable detection method for exoplanets.

New breakthrough discovery—every quantum particle travels backwards

Mathematicians at the Universities of York, Munich and Cardiff have identified a unique property of quantum mechanical particles – they can move in the opposite way to the direction in which they are being pushed.

In everyday life, objects travel in the same direction as their momentum – a car in forward motion is going forwards, and certainly not backwards.

However, this is no longer true on microscopic scales - quantum particles can partially go into reverse and travel in the direction opposite to their momentum. This unique property is known as 'backflow'.

sounds cool, does it mean anything about future space travel?
