1. Saugatuck Brewing Company is making the move to Beer City.

They recently bought Creston Brewery, but they don't plan on changing the name of the establishment. Instead, they plan to bring their current and seasonal releases to the new location off Plainfield Avenue.

The acquisition still needs to be approved by the state's liquor control commission, but they expect a smooth and timely approval.

4. The latest work from NASA's Perseverance Rover could make human exploration easier in the future.

NASA says the Rover just successfully created oxygen on Mars. Perseverance did it by converting the carbon dioxide that's readily available in the red planet's atmosphere.

The Rover made enough oxygen to sustain an astronaut for about 10 minutes. The experiment was the first test of Perseverance's MOXIE instrument, which stands for "Mars Oxygen In-Situ Resource Utilization Experiment."
