1st-ever private Venus mission delayed until at least 2025 |

"The first private mission to Venus won't launch this year after all. The Rocket Lab mission, which was initially set to launch last month, has been delayed until at least January 2025, TechCrunch reported.

Researchers may finally understand where the mental boost from coffee really comes from | Inverse

"Coffee's reputation as a pick-me-up has largely been attributed to its caffeine content. The stimulant increases activity in your brain and nervous system, dialing up adrenaline as well as hormones involved in your fight or flight response, like epinephrine and norepinephrine. You might perceive caffeine as a cognitive enhancer because of these effects. However, there hasn't been conclusive evidence showing it can improve cognitive or mental function."
