In this week’s Fed2 Star: clocks change in the UK, Alan’s been fiddling with the code, why living on Phobos may not be so easy, the ring around a dwarf planet, why we need a mission to Neptune, tourist guide story about special acoustics in Greek amphitheatre is fake news, stupid spy fails to sell industrial secrets, a robot cat with no head or limbs freaks me out, and an impressive Star Wars Halloween decoration. Plus Winding Down, the tech newsletter from Alan.
