Ukrainian and Russian ministers are talking to each other, including Prime Ministers Arseniy Yatsenyuk and Dmitry Medvedev, Ukrainian Economy and Trade Minister Pavlo Sheremeta told CNN’s Hala Gorani, sitting in for Christiane Amanpour. “It’s not uniformal [sic] rejection of the Ukrainian government,” Sheremeta said from Kiev. “We are communicating, we are talking, and that’s the right thing to do.” “I think our prime minister talked to the Russian prime minister,” he said, and added that the Ukrainian energy minister had also spoken to his Russian counterpart. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, as well as other foreign ministers, has urged talks between Russia and Ukraine to negotiate an end to the standoff over the Ukrainian region of Crimea, of which Russian troops remain in effective control. It is not clear if those discussions constituted real negotiations. Ukraine’s top negotiator with the Crimean government Petro Poroshenko told Christiane Amanpour on Tuesday that the two countries’ defense ministers had spoken, but it was “not a negotiation, unfortunately.” “We have lots of common challenges,” Sheremeta said, striking an optimistic tone.

Science, technology, engineering, and math will be the “engines of tomorrow's economy,” astrophysist Neil deGrasse Tyson told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Thursday. “I want to explore because I think it's fun and I like learning something different and new tomorrow that I didn't know today. But I can't require that of everybody.” “So if you needed a pragmatic reason to explore, the best one out there is innovations in science and technology are the engines of tomorrow's economy,” Tyson, who is director of the Hayden Planetarium in New York, said. “We've known this certainly since the Industrial Revolution. But even before then, those nations that invested in exploration and discovery would lead the world in almost every metric that mattered in anything that we call civilization today.” NASA this week announced the discovery of 715 new planets, the largest single batch ever announced, by far. By way of comparison, about 1,000 planets total had been identified in our galaxy before Wednesday. “It's not like they discovered them all last night and then it got reported this morning,” Tyson said. “They've been lined up for a while until the confidence in the detection was high enough to then present it all as one release.” Four of the planets announced are in the so-called “habitable zone,” meaning they could theoretically support life. “You could ask, are we alone? Is the solar - our solar system unusual? Is it - is it common? And that's one of the great questions we always ask about ourselves, and we've been asking it since we came out of the caves.”
