Friday 20:01 GMT

Shares of Snap (SNAP) fell Thursday after an analyst started coverage of the social media company with a Neutral rating and one of the lower price targets on Wall Street.

The problem, according to Guggenheim analyst Michael Morris, is that Snap is a messaging company at a time when investors want to see advertising revenue growth. “We view the company’s core product, messaging (its primary utility to its younger user base), as having limited monetization potential in a market increasingly seeking scale and video advertising opportunities,” Morris wrote Thursday.

China mission targets far side of the Moon

Saturday 16:20 GMT

The Chang'e-4 mission will see a static lander and rover touch down in Von Kármán crater, located on the side of the Moon which never faces Earth.

The mission will characterise the "radio environment" on the far side, a test designed to lay the groundwork for the creation of future radio astronomy telescopes on the far side, which is shielded from the radio noise of Earth. The static lander will carry a 3kg container with potato and arabidopsis plant seeds to perform a biological experiment.
