Advancements in space tend to take a lot longer than planned, so China’s rapid progress building a new space station (known as the “Heavenly Palace”) is quite a surprise.  About a month ago, they launched the first test segment; this week, they launched the second and connected them together.  Seems they’re well on their way to having it finished on schedule by 2020.  I can’t remember the last time NASA finished anything on schedule.

Anyway, here are this week’s sciency links, starting with China’s space station and NASA’s ongoing problems.
