*Strong evidence for planet 9
*Gravitational waves were detected
*Tabby’s star was noticed as an oddity, prompting some to suggest a dyson-spehere
*Kepler discovered over 1,200 new planets
*Proxima b was discovered as a probable habitable planet
*Rosetta said farewell by crashing into the comet it had been observing
*Juno made its way to Jupiter’s orbit
*Hubble detected the furthest object yet to be observed.
*Mars has a large sheet of ice beneath its surface, which could help with future manned missions.
*Pluto has a slushy ocean inside of it
*The James Web Space Telescope was completed
*The Universe has 10 times more galaxies than we initially thought
*Earth has a second moon

Also, Rogue One.

Sidenote: really sorry to hear about your Mom. Glad that the cancer is gone, and hope she is recovering well!
