The New Apathy Hero Is Pengsoo the Giant Sassy Penguin From South Korea

It’s only two months into 2020, but it appears that the Internet has already found its hero of the moment: a gigantic penguin with an attitude named Pengsoo.

An Interloping Dog Entered a Soccer Game and Proved He’s the Real Star of the Sport

Dogs just want to get in on the game, too. That was certainly the case for one eager pup who interrupted a match between two professional Turkish soccer teams at an Istanbul stadium over the weekend.

NASA Could Get a Raise Next Year to Help Fund a 2024 Human Trip to the Moon

For decades, NASA has been the kid politely asking for a raise in its allowance. Time was NASA’s pocket money was huge.

But in 1966 there was also a bully on the block, whose mailbox at the time read “the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.” They were racing the U.S. to be the first to leave the block ...
