    NASA is sending a helicopter to Mars

    When the Mars 2020 rover lands on the Red Planet in early 2021, it will carry with it a small helicopter, the first human craft to fly on another planet. Until now, Mars has hosted orbiters, landers, and rovers, but no flying machines. The Mars helicopter is meant only as a technology demonstration. If it doesn’t work, the Mars 2020 mission will still succeed. If it does, it will have opened up entirely new avenues for exploring other worlds.

    Kevin Feige Teases 'Captain Marvel' Sequels Set in the Past

    Captain Marvel introduced a handful of characters and storylines deep from the Marvel Comics mythos, of which the film barely scratched the surface on. From Mar-Vell to the alien shape-shifters called the Skrulls, there's a lot left to be fleshed out within Marvel Cinematic Universe canon. Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige agrees, teasing in a recent interview that additional Captain Marvel sequels could possibly take place in the past, in the chunk of time between her first solo flick and th...

The original Steam Link app let users stream PC games on Steam to a mobile device within their home, but Steam Link Anywhere lets users stream games from their PC to any compatible device with internet service, excluding Apple devices. Apple rejected the original Steam Link app due to "business conflicts," while the app went on to see a release on Android.

    Why We Can’t Rule Out Bigfoot

    I recently got an email from an anthropologist commenting on a new report in the Proceedings of the Royal Society. The topic of that report was Bigfoot—or rather, a genetic analysis of hairs that people over the years have claimed belong to a giant, hairy, unidentified primate. The international collaboration of scientists, led by University of Oxford geneticist Bryan Sykes, found no evidence that the DNA from the hairs belonged to a mysterious primate.

Imagine this—11 plastic bottles can be recycled and made into a pair of trendy futuristic running shoes, including the laces, heel webbing, heel lining, and sock liner covers. This is not just a dream but has become a reality for Adidas.

    Women's Pain Is Different From Men's—the Drugs Could Be Too

    Men and women can’t feel each other’s pain. Literally. We have different biological pathways for chronic pain, which means pain-relieving drugs that work for one sex might fail in the other half of the population. So why don’t we have pain medicines designed just for men or women? The reason is simple: Because no one has looked for them. Drug development begins with studies on rats and mice, and until three years ago, almost all that research used only male animals. As a result, women in p...

    A Lot of People Say They Don't Give a F*ck. Samuel L. Jackson Means It.

    What he does care a great deal about is acting and movies (and golf—he is coy about his handicap but acknowledges it lies in low single digits), and he approaches his craft with both a childlike love for the medium and a specialist’s obsession with technique. This combination has led him to enjoy one of the most prolific film careers of any actor alive, despite his relatively late-in-life big break. Perhaps only Nicolas Cage comes close to achieving Jackson’s ability to pop up across a pan...

    Abused, abandoned Florida dog becomes official sheriff's deputy

    A dog found with its mouth taped shut and wandering the backyards of Lehigh Acres, a community near Fort Myers, Fla., is making the most of his second chance. The Florida Cur was found “panting, drooling and reportedly suffocating,” the Lee County Sheriff’s Office told Fox 13 News. But not long after, the abused and abandoned pup was adopted, appropriately named Chance and made an official deputy and “Spokes-dog” by the sheriff’s office.

    Radical proposal to artificially cool Earth's climate could be safe, new study claims

    A new study contradicts fears that using solar geoengineering to fight climate change could dangerously alter rainfall and storm patterns in some parts of the world. Published in the peer-reviewed journal Nature Climate Change, the analysis finds that cooling the Earth enough to eliminate roughly half of warming, rather than all of it, generally would not make tropical cyclones more intense or worsen water availability, extreme temperatures or extreme rain. Only a small fraction of places, 0.4%,...

    A 6-year-old boy was playing on a farm when he cut his forehead, a laceration that was simple enough to tend to at home. But six days later, his parents realized something was seriously wrong: He was clenching his jaw, having trouble breathing and experiencing involuntary muscle spasms. The boy, who had not received vaccinations, was taken to Oregon Health & Science University and was found to have tetanus...

    Welding breakthrough could transform manufacturing

    Scientists from Heriot-Watt University have welded glass and metal together using an ultrafast laser system, in a breakthrough for the manufacturing industry. Various optical materials such as quartz, borosilicate glass and even sapphire were all successfully welded to metals like aluminium, titanium and stainless steel using the Heriot-Watt laser system, which provides very short, picosecond pulses of infrared light in tracks along the materials to fuse them together.
