    When Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) was shot in the head at point-blank range before the events of the first season of Netflix’s The Punisher , the bullet fragmented upon entering his skull, and the wound should have killed him. Instead, it left Castle badly wounded and ultimately trapped within a never-ending state of fight or flight.

    Life might exist on the new planet discovered around Barnard's star

    Late last year, astronomers announced that they’d found a super-Earth around Barnard’s star – one of the closest suns to our own. The discovery of a planet just six light-years away was enough to excite astronomers and the public alike. However, the researchers who found the planet said that they suspected the icy world couldn’t support life. But now, a group of astronomers are saying such pessimism may be premature. On Earth, geothermal vents produce heat and create unique environments ...

    NASA Hubble telescope snaps bonkers view of Triangulum Galaxy

    The Hubble Space Telescope's mind-blowing new image of the Triangulum Galaxy is almost as gigantic as the galaxy itself. Triangulum, also called Messier 33, can be spotted by lucky skywatchers without an assist from a telescope, but it looks like a smudge. Hubble's vivid view combines 54 images into one image showing the central part of the galaxy and some of its spiral arms.

    Toyota is developing fighter jet-inspired safety features for cars and wants to share it

    Toyota Research Institute had a breakthrough last year in its pursuit to make driving safer. It was so profound that Toyota wants to open up to other automakers. The inspiration was modern-day fighter jets, which use a low-level flight control system to translate the intent of the pilot and keep the aircraft stable and tucked neatly inside a specific safety envelope. TRI calls it blended envelope control, an approach that lets its “Guardian” driver assist system combine and coordinate the sk...

    People with high resting blood pressure tend to be less sensitive to social rejection, according to new research published in Biological Psychology. Previous studies have found that higher resting blood pressure is associated with lower sensitivity to physical pain. But researchers from the University of Pittsburgh and UCLA were interested in seeing if this extended to social pain as well.

    Why the Climate Change Message Isn't Working

    Here is what I want everyone in the climate change movement to hear: People are not going to be frightened into caring. Scientific predictions about what will happen 10, 20, or 50 years in the future are not going to make them care, not enough. What we need is the level of energy and commitment that we saw at Standing Rock. We need the breadth of activism we saw in Flint, Michigan, where everyone from yoga teachers to biker gangs joined in relentless protest against lead contamination.

    What 2019 holds for Facebook

    A fine, another fine, a break-up threat, users leaving - all potentially on the cards for Facebook this year. This year, the apologies will make way for accountability, and the talk of regulation will (potentially) turn to action. But what does that mean exactly? How severe might any punishments be? Here’s what might happen to Facebook over the next 12 months.

    Russian Researcher Successfully Prints Living Tissue While In Space

    3D printing has been used in the medical industry before, where we have seen the tech used to 3D print cartilage and skull implants. Now it seems that Russian researcher Oleg Kononenko has successfully managed to 3D print living tissue, but here’s the kicker: not only is Kononenko a researcher, but he is a cosmonaut as well, and this 3D printing was actually done in space.

    2018 Wasn’t a Completely Horrible Year for the Environment

    Was 2018 a tough year for the environment? Absolutely. But were there bright spots and victories among the attacks on biodiversity, climate, and public health? Of course there were. Here are just a few, in case you’re feeling blue about the state of our only planet. The first few weeks of 2018 saw Scott Pruitt, then administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, trying to deflect attention from several corruption scandals by publicly declaring his intention to halve the agency’s ...

    No End In Sight To Shutdown As Senate Goes Home For Christmas

    The partial shutdown of the federal government that began just after midnight Saturday won't be ending anytime soon. The Senate has adjourned with no business in the chamber anticipated before Thursday afternoon and, maybe not even then, if congressional leaders and President Trump can't reach an agreement over the president's demand for $5 billion in funding for his border wall.

    How Much Trust Can Facebook Afford to Lose?

    What is the price of trust? Or, to put the question another way, what is the cost of becoming known for doing things that don’t match your words? To put a number on that, Tony Simons, a management professor at Cornell, took an unusually detailed look inside the hotel industry. In 1999, Simons and a fellow-researcher, Judi McLean Parks, interviewed employees at seventy-six Holiday Inn hotels in the United States and Canada.

    Donald Trump wants the courts to determine if it is legal for 'Saturday Night Live' to 'belittle' him

    President Trump says the justice system should stop investigating his administration and go after the real enemy – “Saturday Night Live.” During a series of Sunday morning tweets attacking everyone from his former attorney Michael Cohen to Hillary Clinton, the President slipped in the suggestion that NBC’s long-running comedy skit program should be “tested in courts,” seemingly for its alleged “collusion” with Democratic party interests.
