Hi Everyone


The usual starcharts and newsletters are attached for the month, along with two interesting papers on Anthropology one takes a look at Easter Island and another the DNA of people outside of Africa. There is an interesting look at Zealanada our small continent mostly submerged. There is also a look at why many Sub Neptune planets are the size they are, and perhaps the distant proposed Ice Giant could fit into this category of planet too.


Again there is no shortage of interesting research out this month but if I had to pick out a personal highlight it was the paper looking at the search for an outer ice giant in our solar system. If you’re interested in exo planets, Seti and Red dwarfs there will be lots to keep you occupied!
