  • Get ready for the supermoon eclipse this weekend. The fourth total lunar eclipse in two years is exciting enough, but this time it’s extra special because it’s combined with a supermoon. This Sunday night, September 27, you can witness the Earth as it slides between the sun and the moon, turning a stunning rusty red color. The moon will also appear about 14% larger during the eclipse and 30% brighter than usual. — Wired
  • During his first U.S. visit, Pope Francis has asked Congress to abolish the death penalty. “Every life is sacred, every human person is endowed with an inalienable dignity, and society can only benefit from the rehabilitation of those convicted of crimes,” he said. Millions of Americans are in support of the pope’s call to make the death penalty a thing of the past, and many have been “pushing across the country for a more humane criminal justice system.” — Think Progress
  • WhatsApp users are being warned of a new scam. If you receive an email that says “Incoming Voice Message,” do not open it. According to the Better Business Bureau, the email will look like it’s coming from WhatsApp with the subject line “Incoming Voice Message” and a time stamp of the message. But the danger is when you open the message, and users are prompted to listen to a missed voice mail, but “opening the email and pressing the play button triggers the malware download.” These scams expose your personal information, such as bank accounts or other financial information, to thieves. — Money
  • The question of whether aliens exist has finally been answered by a NASA scientist, and “no one’s out there.” World-renowned scientist William Borucki, the principal investigator of NASA’s Kepler mission, said there are no signs of life and “we are likely alone in our galaxy.” But he is surprised, given his extensive research that there is no evidence of extraterrestrial life. “The evidence says no one’s out there.” — International Business Times
