A Fascinating 3D Animation Shows the Depths of the Ocean

Deep sea exploration and the science of oceanography began 150 years ago when British survey ship HMS Challenger set off from Portsmouth with 181 miles of rope. The Royal Society tasked the expedition, among other things, with “investigat[ing] the physical conditions of the deep sea… in regard to depth, temperature circulation, specific gravity and penetration of light.” It was the first such voyage of its kind.

Before-and-after images of landmarks around the world show the devastating sea-level rise that's coming

Projected future sea levels at Lalbagh Fort in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Climate Central A new study describes what would happen to global landmarks under various degrees of sea-level rise.

The 14 Most Dangerous Mission: Impossible Stunts, Ranked Worst To Best

"Mission: Impossible" premiered on CBS in 1966 as an upside down "Topkapi" riff that left the conniving to the good guys. For creator Bruce Geller, expertise was the point. Characters and plots were left blank and blurry, forcing viewers to join the Impossible Missions Force or be left in the high-tech dust. Fun only got in the way; Geller famously scolded star Peter Graves for smiling at the end of an episode.In 1996, director Brian De Palma reinvented the series as a star vehicle for Tom Cruis...

Much like the Fast and Furious movies, the Mission: Impossible movies are always raising the bar.

‘Mission: Impossible 7’ Image Showcases the Return of Henry Czerny as Franchise Frenemy Kittridge

Long before Tom Cruise swung off the Burj Khalifa, strapped himself to the outside of an actual airplane, or broke his ankle while leaping from building to building, his Mission: Impossible character used a piece of explosive gum to blow up a restaurant aquarium and escape from CIA director Eugene Kittridge, memorably played by Henry Czerny. We’ve known Czerny would be returning to reprise that role 25 years later in the upcoming Mission: Impossible 7, and now writer/director Christopher McQuar...

Why riding a roller coaster as tall as the Burj Khalifa could kill you

Kingda Ka is the tallest roller coaster in the world. At 139 meters, it's nearly the height of the Great Pyramid of Giza. But what if someone built a roller coaster as tall as the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world? Although the engineering would be possible, it wouldn't be safe to ride because intense wind resistance, flying pieces of debris, and bird strikes could injure or even kill riders. Plus, the high g-forces could cause people to blackout as blood moves away from ...

Building Your Legacy: What metrics are important?

The first Olympic 26.2-mile marathon, back in 1896, was won in just under three hours. Roughly a century and a quarter later, the record now stands at a blazing-fast 2 hours. By 2050, will we see a record of 1.1 hours? Is it possible? Is it significant? And, more importantly, why are we so focused on it? Running a marathon is impressive, but not at the cost of losing your bodily functions, endangering your organs, or dropping dead. Training for years to shave seconds off of miles makes no sense ...
