Everything Coming to Disney+ at Launch Teased in 197-Minute Video

However, apparently that wasn’t enough for Disney+, because they’ve now released a video that’s over three hours long with clips from e...

Part two of my novella "Martian Chronicles" on Escape Pod: who cleans the toilets in libertopia?

Last week, the Escape Pod podcast published part one of a reading of my YA novella "Martian Chronicles," which I wrote for Jonathan Strahan's Life on Mars anthology: it's a story about libertarian spacesteaders who move to Mars to escape "whiners" and other undesirables, only to discover that the colonists that preceded them expect them to clean the toilets when they arrive. Last night, they published the conclusion in part two (MP3) of Adam Pracht's reading of the story, along with some lo...

Mars – “Murder” (EP Review)

Mars is a horrorcore veteran from Pittsburgh, California that made his debut in 1998 with S.I.D.S. (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). He would go on to drop 2 EPs in the mid-2000s, a mixtape in 2012 & his sophomore full-length entitled Glockcoma just a couple years ago. But with a new studio album Locked Up a Broad set to drop next month, Mars is warming the fans up by enlisting Bvne to produce his 3rd EP. The opener “Small Sacrifices” is mostly a 2 minute hypnotic trap beat, but the first actual ...

Artificial meat is now made in space, coming to a supermarket near you

Creating meat from cells is no longer the realm of science fiction: a Russian cosmonaut did it aboard the International Space Station, and it is just a matter of time before these products arrive in supermarkets. Tests carried out in space in September led to the production of beef, rabbit and fish tissue using a 3D printer. This new technology "could make long-term travel possible and renew space exploration," to Mars for example, said Didier Toubia, the head of the Israeli startup Aleph Farm...

A NASA image shows the center of our galaxy in unprecedented detail. Expect far more revealing photos from a soon-to-launch telescope.

A NASA photo captures the center of the Milky Way galaxy in infrared light. The image shows the galactic center in unprecedented detail, but NASA's upcoming James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) will produce even better photos. JWST's powerful infrared cameras might even capture the disk of hot matter swirling around the supermassive black hole at the galaxy's center. Future images of the galaxy's center could help scientists answer questions about how the Milky Way formed and how it evolves over ...

A winner of this year's Nobel prize in physics is convinced we'll detect alien life in 100 years. Here are 13 reasons why we haven't made contact yet.

The Milky Way galaxy has billions of planets that could potentially host life. Yet despite scientists' efforts to monitor for and occasionally signal to extraterrestrials, we have not found any evidence that aliens exist. This conundrum is known as the Fermi Paradox, and it has inspired debate among researchers for decades. A co-winner of this year's Nobel prize in physics said he "can't believe we are the only living entity in the universe," and that he's "absolutely convinced" we will detect...

A huge explosion sliced through our galaxy just 3.5 million years ago, as human ancestors walked the Earth. Scientists think it was nuclear activity in the black hole at the Milky Way's center.

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope revealed the remnants of a huge explosion near the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy, just 3.5 million years ago. In galactic timescales, that's recent. Ancient human ancestors lived across Africa at the time. Video of an artist's interpretation shows how the explosion produced cones of radiation that reached 200,000 light-years beyond our galaxy. Researchers say the blast was likely caused by nuclear activity. The finding suggests the Milky Way...

Mars Curiosity Rover finds evidence of an ancient oasis on Mars

On its latest trek through the Gale Crater on Mars, the Curiosity Rover has discovered evidence that’s leading . scientists to believe that there was an oasis at the base of that 150-kilometer-wide crater. Curiosity scientists described the scene in an article in “Nature Geoscience” published earlier this week. Researchers analyzing data from the Rover are extrapolating from the data that rocks enriched by mineral salts are evidence of briny ponds that went through periods of drying out and o...

NASA's Curiosity rover found a weirdly salty 'ancient oasis' on Mars

NASA's Curiosity rover discovered what it dubs an "ancient oasis" on the red planet, featuring some very unusual salts. After sending Curiosity to explore the floor of the 100-meter-wide Gale Crater, scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory said in a statement Monday that millions of years ago, the floor of the crater might have been covered with shallow streams. The rocks that Curiosity found were also filled with unique mineral salts.

20 new moons were just discovered orbiting Saturn, and you can help name them

Twenty new moons orbiting Saturn were discovered, bringing the planet's total up to 82 moons. Saturn now has more moons than any other planet in the solar system, including Jupiter, which has 79. Further study of the new moons could help determine how the planet's outermost moons may have formed from collisions that fragmented large moons into smaller bodies. People can submit suggestions for the new moons' names on Twitter, pulling from Norse, Inuit, and Gallic mythology. Visit Business Insid...

Ad Astra Review – Pitt’s Heavy Burden Trudging Through James Gray Space Psych Lesson

The recent trend of films giving away very little in their trailers is a technique that perhaps ultimately works against James Gray‘s Ad Astra. While potential viewers hopefully have their interest piqued by a film that doesn’t dare give anything away, there’s a mental backlash inherent in the reveal that there wasn’t anything to give away. Roy McBride (Brad Pitt) is an astronaut, after a fashion, and when the Earth itself is suddenly in danger, he is in a unique position to help. His father,...
