Recently, we were on the set of Zack Snyder’s movie Justice League. The trip was coordinated to try change perception after the polarising response to Batman v Superman, but it also provided answers to burning questions. Among them, why the heck did DC release a deleted scene online immediately after that film’s opening weekend?
Apollo 11 is the most famous space flight of all time, due to it being the trip that first brought human beings to the moon. Now, you can get a bit closer to what Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins experienced back in July 1969.
The majority of the world now knows John Boyega as Finn, the Stormtrooper-turned-hero of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. For some of us though, he’ll always be Moses, the badass star of 2011’s cult film Attack the Block, and the star just potentially teased a return to that world.
Hey termites, we’re not so different, you and I. Termites are usually one of the banes of human existence, as they feed on dead matter — such as the wood that we use to build our homes — but they supersede humans in one interesting way: they have been farming for millions of years longer than humans.
Replacing desktop 3D printers with hand-held 3D-printing pens never quite lived up to the promise of letting users turn sketches into real-life objects. And that’s partly because 3D-printing pens aren’t as forgiving as this 3D Foam Pen that swaps melted plastic for soap suds.
When history’s first filmmakers ran film through a camera at 24 frames per second, they weren’t concerned with story. They were just wowed by what they’d achieved, which was considerable. Hardcore Henry, history’s first first person POV action movie, feels like that. It’s groundbreaking and visually impressive, but simply not very good at telling a story.
If you’ve ever driven a car that’s parked outside in winter, you’ll know it’s frigid as hell inside your car and the windshield can be totally opaque from all the foggy arse frost. Not cool. How do you get rid of it? Hit the defrost button right? That’s not all. The always inquisitive Mark Rober tested out every combination on how to defrost your windshield and came up with a way that is twice as fast as other methods. That means you’ll get a clear windshield in half the time.
If an active volcano nearby suddenly kicks up its activity with steam, smoke and below-ground rumblings, it’s a good idea to get away very quickly. But now researchers have found an even more dangerous sign to watch volcanoes for: Sudden, total silence.
These beetles may look like two different species, but they’re the same individual. The difference lies in how they were photographed, using a new lens that allows scientists to “see” one of the most fundamental properties of biology: Chirality.
We know about our North and South poles, but what about an East, West, or slightly-to-the-left pole? According to new research published in Geophysical Research Letters, around one billion years ago, that might have been a possibility.
An underground cave is precisely the wrong direction if you’re hoping to go into space — so why is the European Space Agency sending the latest batch of ISS-bound astronauts on a spelunking expedition? To practise for life in a sealed tin can, of course.
