All good things must come to an end, and so it will be tomorrow when the Rosetta spacecraft makes its planned soft landing onto the surface of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko , the culmination of 2 years of close-up studies. Solar power has waned as 67P's orbit takes it and Rosetta farther from the sun, and so the mission team decided to go on a last data-gathering descent before the lights go out. This last data grab is a bonus after a mission that is already changing theorists' views about how comets and planets arose early in the solar system. Several Rosetta observations suggest that comets form not from jolting mergers of larger cometesimals, meters to kilometers across, but rather from the gentle coalescence of clouds of pebbles. And the detection of a single, feather-light, millimeter-sized particle -- preserved since the birth of the solar system -- should further the view of a quiet birth.

This Chef’s Ambitious Menu Is A Model For Creative Reinvention
There’s this natural feeling I have for cooking. I like it, because it feels most honest to me. When I do it, I feel like I’m my most honest self. I wouldn’t be happy not doing it. But also when people tell you you can’t do something, that serves as excellent fuel to prove them wrong. To sort of push yourself even harder. When people say you can’t, there’s this natural tendency to say, 'Well, yes I can.'
If I could go back, maybe the best advice I could give myself would be to just be a little more patient, though, for things to happen. And even with things I’d dream of wanting to happen, remember that those all come with other responsibilities. That it’s not always that beautiful romanticizing something. The reality takes so much more effort. And be okay with that.

Is The iPhone 7 Plus Apple’s First Step To Augmented Reality? Not Likely.
LinX also boasted about its dual-lens technology’s ability to capture depth of field in images—the baseline requirement for capturing augmented reality spaces and imagery—so that the background in an image could be affected independently of the foreground, or even replaced by another background. This, of course, describes the trick that Apple is most proud of in the iPhone 7 Plus camera, in which the foreground image (a person) is put sharply in focus while the background is blurred. Apple calls this "Portrait" mode.
To create this effect, the two cameras must work together to capture enough image data to form the reasonable assumption that the thing in the foreground is a person. They may be able to recognize things like the edges of the head. The camera might use an algorithm to recognize aspects of a human face. Once it’s identified the object in the foreground as a person, it can bring that area of the image into sharp focus. It can also assume that everything else in the image is background, and can then blur the background.
