quote [ During the 17th century, as knowledge of the Universe and its contents increased, so did speculation about life on other planets. One such source, as Hugh Aldersey-Williams explores, was Dutch astronomer, mathematician, and inventor Christiaan Huygens, whose earlier work on probability paved the way for his very modern evaluation of what alien life might look like. ]

quote [ Pour one out for the TaBbies—Tab Cola has been discontinued by Coca Cola. With nearly zero market share and limited availability, you might be surprised to learn that Tab even still exists. But the once-popular zero-calorie drink has been kept afloat by intensely devoted fans—also known as TaBaholics—who have already been stockpiling the distinct, slightly bitter cola for years. ]

Tab, Tab Cola, what a beautiful drink…
