Today on In Case You Missed It: NASA just started developing the Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope, slotted to hit space by the mid-2020s. This will good 'ole Hubble still chugged away, analyzing the atmosphere of an exoplanet 40 light years away.

For those of you with any difficulty typing, this DIY creation pairs speech recognition with mechanical buttons for some riveting viewing.
