Hello, humans and ghouls! Happy Halloween!

If you live on planet Earth (and I am going to assume most of you do) then this a pretty big day for climate science. World leaders, diplomats, activists and scientists come together for the UN climate conference, COP26, for the next two weeks. CNET will be on the ground at the event and, though we've always brought you the latest in climate science, over the next few weeks we'll be doubling down, exploring some of the technological advances that could give us new tools to help mitigate the worst effects of a warming planet. Solar geoengineering, smart cities, killer viruses... and much more! So jump to the explainer above and prepare.

There's plenty of other great stories here, too. The top story this week comes from Leslie Katz and takes a look at how geoscience is helping unearth an 80-year-old Holocaust mystery. It's a wonderful piece, sobering and important. We've also got the "first" possible detection of a planet outside the Milky Way -- that's a complicated story, though. Another complicated story that caught our attention this week is the struggle developing nations face in responding to climate change. World reporter Daniel Van Boom takes a look at that below. Finally, for rocket-watchers, don't forget that SpaceX and NASA will launch Crew-3 this week. That was planned for Halloween but NASA got spooked by the weather, so should be launching this Tuesday, Nov. 2. You can find out where to watch below. Before ALL that it's usually mail time, but there's a lot to get to this week and I want to hear from you -- do you like the mailbag? What else would you like to see in the weekly email?

You can send any burning questions (probably bad time to say burning, given the climate conference), send me an email or a message on Twitter! And if you're enjoying this email, please forward it to your friends!

Enim scientia et astra!
