4 Black Female Athletes Whose Style Was Considered ‘Too Much’

On Friday, French Tennis Federation chief Bernard Giudicelli announced a dress code for the 2019 French Open; in it, he noted that the black Nike catsuit Serena Williams wore to last year’s tennis tournament would now be inappropriate. “I think that sometimes we've gone too far,” Giudicelli said in an interview with Tennis magazine, singling out Williams' look. “It will no longer be accepted. One must respect the game and the place.” Moving forward, Giudicelli is calling for a dress code where ...

An astronaut has recorded a 'first of its kind' video of mysterious blue jets of electricity

We're used to lightning that shoots down from clouds, but a lesser-known form of electricity blasts up from cloud tops — and out toward space. Called blue jets, these gigantic electrical discharges are rarely photographed. Typically, only pilots who fly over active thunderstorms see or photograph them. Satellites have recorded them, too, but not very well. However, an astronaut in space has filmed a first-of-its-kind color video of elusive blue jets, according to a January 2017 study in Geophys...

Check Out These 12 Amazing Vintage Olympics Looks

The focus of the Olympics is, obviously, the incredible physical feats going down in Rio right now, on land, on horse, in water, and mid air. We're not looking that closely at the outfits.
