STORY: Stories that made us smile this week
1// New Yorkers ate billionaires in popsicle form
Price tag: $10
(Angelica Wilson, Customer)
"Tastes good. Little strawberry-y, creamy. Doesn't taste like over $100 billion, but it's good."
2// Mattel unveiled a Jane Goodall Barbie doll made from recycled plastic
(Jane Goodall, Primatologist)
"Girls don't want just to be film stars and things like that; but many of them, like me, want to be out in nature studying animals. And so a Barbie doll who's Jane is a super idea."

3// New York's ASPCA welcomed its 10,000th kitten
(Meike Oliver, Senior manager, ASPCA kitten nursery)
"We're excited about this huge milestone of our 10,000th kitten // We get kittens that are very vulnerable and they're the most vulnerable population in New York City and in the country. So we feel it's important to save them and to take care of them. "
4// NASA released the first images from the James Webb Space Telescope
the largest, most powerful observatory ever launched to space
(Stephen Wilkins, Astronomer, University of Sussex)
‘’This is like the tip of the iceberg. It’s the smallest little image. I think this was something like 10 hours worth of data which is a good amount but we’ve got a telescope that we might have for the next couple of decades so just imagine what we can get over that time. And this is 10, 20 times better than the Hubble image. It’s actually a bit overwhelming to be honest because this data is so good we can imagine spending days, weeks even months just pouring over this one image"
