    Hubble telescope camera is broken — and US government shutdown could delay repairs

    One of the Hubble Space Telescope’s main instruments stopped working on 8 January because of an unspecified hardware problem, NASA says. Engineers are unlikely to be able to fix the ageing telescope until the ongoing US government shutdown ends — whenever that might be. Hubble’s mission operations are based at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, where most employees are on involuntary leave during the shutdown.

    Kevin Spacey pleads not guilty to sexual assault charges

    House of Cards actor Kevin Spacey has pleaded not guilty to the charges of sexual assault brought against him in court yesterday. In his first court appearance in Nantucket, Massachusetts, Spacey was silent during the arraignment which lasted fifteen minutes. While a number of very serious allegations of sexual assault have been laid against Spacey, this particular arraignment was in response to a 2016 incident in which he allegedly groped an 18 year-old man by forcefully putting his hands down ...

    Dodge Challenger outsells Camaro in 2018, but Mustang still king

    Executives at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Ford have reason to celebrate over their muscle cars, while Chevrolet is likely taking a hard look at its Camaro. The 2018 sales figures are in from all three American automakers, and the results put Ford on top in the muscle car wars. Despite a decrease in sales of 7.4 percent compared to the previous year, Ford managed to sell 75,842 Mustangs in 2018. The figure is more than enough to claim the number one spot after its first full year on sale after ...

    Bitcoin Exposed Silicon Valley's Ultimate Aim: Making Money

    BITCOIN TURNED 10 this month, and what a ride it’s been—initial obscurity; the kind of exponential price spike last seen by Dutch tulip peddlers; the rise of imitators based on its underlying blockchain technology; and, in the past year, a steep, steady decline in price. The old joke about the lifecycle of a Hollywood star applied to Silicon Valley: What is Bitcoin? Get me Bitcoin! Get me a Bitcoin type! What is Bitcoin?

    Samsung’s 75-inch MicroLED 4K TV is a huge step into the future

    After launching an enormous MicroLED TV called The Wall at last year’s CES, Samsung has returned in 2019 with a smaller, 75-inch 4K TV that’s a far more practical fit for the living room. It uses the same MicroLED foundation as The Wall, combining “individual tiles of self-emissive MicroLEDs, featuring millions of inorganic red, green and blue microscopic LED chips that emit their own bright light to produce brilliant colors on screen.” There’s no backlight required, so MicroLED displa...

    Convicted of murder, released because "no longer dangerous". He struck again

    A British man is sentenced to life for the second time today for a bloody attack on a defenceless victim. Stephen Leonard (57) received a first life in 1979 for the murder of a 3-year-old girl. That case was so horrible that its details were never revealed. In 2002, however, he was released after a parole committee ruled that he was “no longer dangerous”. In the summer of last year, however, he struck again. Equally merciless.

    Will the world embrace Plan S, the radical proposal to mandate open access to science papers?

    Since the September 2018 launch of the Europe-backed program to mandate immediate open access (OA) to scientific literature, 16 funders in 13 countries have signed on. That's still far shy of Plan S's ambition: to convince the world's major research funders to require immediate OA to all published papers stemming from their grants.

    Why Two People See the Same Thing But Have Different Memories

    Does it ever strike you as odd that you and a friend can experience the same event at the same time, but come away with different memories of what happened? So why is it that people can recall the same thing so differently? We all know memory isn’t perfect, and most memory differences are relatively trivial. But sometimes they can have serious consequences.

    What made solar panels so cheap? Thank government policy.

    From an economic perspective, the core challenge of climate change is that the standard way of doing things — the dirty, carbon-intensive way — is typically cheaper than newer, lower-carbon alternatives. Solving the problem means driving down the cost of those alternatives. Simple, right? But in practice, it’s not so simple. In fact, we still don’t have a very good grasp on exactly what drives technological innovation and improvement. Is it basic scientific research? Early-stage R&D?...

    A Danish startup invented underwear you can wear for weeks without washing

    Yes, that's right — underpants you can wear for weeks without washing. But Organic Basics' mission as a company is not to advocate laziness amongst the younger generation, though it might seem the case. No; it's all about saving the environment. "Our business is sustainable fashion. The traditional way of buying, wearing, washing and throwing away overpriced underwear is a terrible waste of resources.

    The robots are coming. Let’s help the middle class get ready.

    Are U.S. workers now threatened by a new and powerful form of automation that could displace tens of millions from their current jobs and dislodge them from the middle class? If so, are college-educated or professional workers at the upper range of the middle class as much threatened as those with fewer such credentials at the lower end? And can policy do much to protect the middle class status of either group?

    Susan Rice rips Trump over McGurk tweet: ‘I can assure you’ Obama knows him well

    Former national security adviser Susan Rice ripped President Trump late Saturday for declaring he doesn't know his top envoy in the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), saying that she "can assure you" former President Obama "knows him well." "The fact that you say you don’t know @brett_mcgurk speaks volumes about your commitment to fighting ISIS @realDonaldTrump.
