If that's the case, you can hardly be blamed, as the vast majority of television programming hasn't adopted the format yet either, but that's not stopping NASA from pushing the envelope with a video so high-res that you probably don't own a screen that can display it at its full resolution. In a new post, NASA shows off what it says is the very first 8K video footage shot in space....

A short history of toilets at 35,000 feet – what really happens when you flush a plane loo?

Unless you’ve flown first class, or in a private jet, aircraft loos are windowless, cramped affairs that usually reek of cheap sanitizer.

Restrictive legislation introduced by Poland's right-wing government in 2016 threw a spanner into the works for onshore wind energy, but the easing of some measures now promises to get the sector spinning. The change comes ahead of the COP24 World Climate Conference that opens December 2 in the southern Polish city of Katowice, a coal mining hub long among the main providers of the country's primary source of both fuel and pollution.
