Previously, most of the exoplanets labelled ‘super Earths’ (as they are slightly larger than our own planet) have also been...

Welcome to the crowd in the cloud. It’s like tapping into the collective consciousness of Star Trek’s Borg cybernetic aliens. In theory, the work you get back can be better quality, lower-cost, and delivered much faster than if you went...
