I thought that one was very interesting. What piqued my curiousity recently was the Square Kilometre Array. The data output alone is, well, monstrous, to say the least.
That looks awesome too. I'm just more excited for Webb because it will operate in the visible and infrared spectrums so we'll hopefully get some great pictures.
I had a question - I'm trying to add my credit card to my paypal account. However, when I go to get the code, the description next to the $1.95 charge doesn't have a 4 digit code in it.
Instead I see this:
I can't find a way to get any more details about the transaction than this. Is there another way to verify? I was pretty sure before that it deposited different amounts, instead of the $1.95, and you used that as a means to confirm your card, instead of this elusive 4 digit code. Any way I can do it the old way, or another way? Or am I just out of luck, unless I can call up my card company and see if they'll tell me what the code is over the phone?
Welcome! Feel free to answer our ice breaker this week: "There's some great stargazing weather ahead! Do you have a favorite constellation or other celestial object? Why is it your favorite? "
I can see that your card issuer is still processing the $1.95 payment because it shows as "pending". Usually the 4 digit code will not show up until the payment has been completed.
The other deposits you remember are for confirming banks. Those are random amounts between $0.00 and $0.99 and usually take about 2-3 business days to post.
Most card issuers will update the pending status within a few days so card confirmation usually takes about the same amount of time as bank confirmation.
Calling the card issuer is worth a try. Sometimes they can see the code and provide it over the phone.
I hope this helps!
