  • VING Project: Charity, named after the latter part of the word 'giving', is sending $1,000 to hundreds of teens - but it's not for them!

  • Germany: Wind power becomes the country's most important power source for first time ever, delivering nearly 35% of all electricity in Q1 2020.

  • Technosignatures: In good news for alien hunters, the search for extra-terrestrial intelligence is taking a new approach and scientists already believe they know where to look.
