Planetary Society Digital Editor Jason Davis has just returned from the famed Mirror Lab at the University of Arizona.  He witnessed the creation of a mirror that will soon become part of the Giant Magellan Telescope.  The International Astronomical Union has made it official.  Bruce Betts is all over the first, confirmed interstellar object to enter our solar system.  He tells us about it in this week’s What’s Up.
