How To Make The Most Of Your Mobile Data
By 2025, it’s thought that consumer data usage will rise to 98GB per month. In 2016, this figure was less than 2GB. Mobile data is vital to enabling internet access when Wi-Fi isn’t accessible, keeping us connected no matter where we are. But it’s easy to exceed your plan’s allowance, which can come at a costly price.

NASA Picture of the Day: Plane Crossing Crescent Moon
show more/less
No, the Moon is not a bow, and no, it did not shoot out a plane like an arrow. What is pictured is a chance superposition. The plane's contrail would normally appear white, but the large volume of air toward the rising Sun preferentially knocked away blue light, not only making the sky blue, but giving the reflected trail a bright red hue. Far in the distance, well behind the plane, the crescent Moon also appears slightly reddened.
