Weird formatting bug[edit]

A recent change to the picture at Template:In the news caused the caption to go below the outline of the template, when displayed at full width. This caused the sidebar to move left out of the way. I have added a {{clear}} template to the bottom of Portal:Current events/Headlines, which seems to have fixed the issue, unless a different solution can be found. --Danski454 (talk) 09:46, 23 October 2018 (UTC)

Country that launched asteroid spacecraft[edit]

OSIRIS-REx is the third planetary science mission in (US) NASA's New Frontiers program. Recommend we identify the launching and monitoring country. Thanks. RaqiwasSushi (talk) 05:11, 8 December 2018 (UTC)
