The European Space Agency has reported that the historic mission to land a probe on a comet for the first time has passed the point of no return on Wednesday, with the Philae lander having separated from the Rosetta mother ship. The president and CEO of the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Institute has meanwhile said that the mission can help scientists in the search for alien life.
BBC News reported that the robot will attempt to land on the Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, which is almost 317 miles away from Earth.
It would be the first time a probe has successfully landed on a comet, and it will seek to explore its composition. more >>
The hugely popular YouVersion Bible App recently hit the 1,000 mark in terms of number of Bible translations, with over 700 languages available, and creator Bobby Gruenewald said he hopes the milestone will help draw attention to the amount of dedication and effort it takes to translate the Bible into native languages.
"One of the things I'm excited about in celebrating this milestone of 1,000 versions is that for a lot of people it's going to bring an awareness to the translation effort that's underway by a number of partners, including Wycliffe and the Bible Society, and various other translation groups that are making Bible text available to the Bible App," Gruenewald, the Innovation Pastor of LifeChurch.tv in Oklahoma, told The Christian Post.
"What I did not appreciate or fully understand when we first started the process was that each of these translations that are done, they often times take decades to complete. It involves people that have invested, in some cases, their entire ministry life working on developing a translation for a new language." more >>

Microsoft and Nokia have teased a new Lumia launch on Nov. 11, and it is rumored that the Lumia 535 will be making its debut on the said day. However, leaked photos may have spoiled the surprise as they feature what the phone looks like. According to Techradar, the photos were leaked by WMPoweruser.
The phone, which echoes the design of previous Lumia phones, will be lacking one distinctive feature—the Nokia logo. Instead, it will sport the Microsoft name on the front of the screen and written horizontally on the back of the device. Aside from that basic difference, there will also be some important changes beneath the phone's colorful shell.

It runs on Windows 8.1. more >>
