First, the JUICE mission to Jupiter and its Galilean moons, which our group has been working on for ages, has been recommended by ESA to win the first launch in the Cosmic Vision programme. This is the BBC article about it. Please note that this is not the same as full approval - the member states of ESA have to vote on 2 May to select it over the other two proposed missions. But it is seen as "rather unlikely" that the member states will vote against the Space Science Advisory Committee's recommendation.

And second, my boss has been made a Fellow of the Royal Society. Professor Michele Dougherty, FRS. In your face, persons who claim women can't be great scientists.
