Last year, renewable energy accounted for more than half of all new forms of power generation produced worldwide. It’s an unprecedented milestone for our civilization—one that points to a bright future for solar and wind power.
I’ve been reading President Dwight Eisenhower’s diaries this election season, and I recently started laughing out loud at the entry from May 1, 1953.

Add this to the long list of celestial End Times portents to keep you up at night: Saturn’s north polar hexagon, a six-sided vortex of unknown origin that could easily swallow our entire planet, has changed color. It was blue when the Cassini spacecraft imaged it in 2012, and now, it’s bright gold.
The first car ride I ever took was in a 1990 Plymouth Voyager just like the blue one you see in the picture above. And now, 25 years later, I find myself drooling over the things, which is just not normal for a guy my age. Is it my subconscious yearning to relive its first automotive experience, or are these things…

Researchers with the ExoMars mission are pointing to a potential computing glitch as the cause of last week’s crash of the Schiaparelli lander. The challenge now will be to isolate and correct the error in hopes of preventing a repeat in 2020, when mission planners aim to land a much larger rover on the Red Planet.
Before he became a member of the PayPal Mafia or invested in Facebook, Silicon Valley billionaire and Donald Trump delegate Peter Thiel co-wrote a book called The Diversity Myth: Multiculturalism and Political Tolerance on Campus. Published in 1995, the book is notorious for its rigorous defense of a Stanford law…
There are no spoilers here—even if we’re more than a month past Detective Comics #940 at this point—but we’d still like your photoshopping help to break some news to Batman.
On an forbidding shoreline at the bottom of the world, the prodigious ice sheets of West Antarctica dead-end in the Amundsen sea. For decades, scientists have been monitoring this interface of rock, ice and ocean, in order to understand how quickly it’ll retreat as the planet warms up. A new study shows that three of…
