  • Space Photos of the Week: Pretty Planets, Gorgeous Galaxies

    The news is stressful but space is not, so this week we are going to cruise through the void to get some much needed perspective and beauty. We will begin at our smaller terrestrial neighbor, Mars and gaze upon some surprisingly beautiful terrain. Then we will stop by Jupiter, one of the most beautiful planets in the solar system, before heading to iconic Saturn. Then it’s out into deep space. HI Andromeda! On a clear night you can sometimes spot this galaxy with the naked eye, though a telescope does help.

The company posted a note on its developer blog Saturday that outlines the review process for apps related to the virus.

    “We’re evaluating apps critically to ensure data sources are reputable and that developers presenting these apps are from recognized entities such as government organizations, health-focused NGOs, companies deeply credentialed in health issues, and medical or educational institutions,” the post states. “Only developers from one of these recognized entities should submit an app related to COVID-19.”

    Apple also is banning entertainment apps and games that are COVID-19 or coronavirus-themed, the post states.

    Developers should choose the “time-sensitive event” option when submitting a permissible COVID-19 related app to the App Store to expedite the process, since many are focused on alleviating crisis situations. Membership
