Damn. It’s like hitting a wall. Or rather, it’s like a wall hitting you. This footage shows giant wave and giant wave pummeling a ship and when you think they’ve weathered the storm, in comes the biggest and baddest wave that smacks the boat silly.
Researchers at Keio University spent weeks showing laboratory mice footage of mouse porn, mouse fights, and mouse sniffing. They found out that mice can distinguish between social behaviors—and that they prefer seeing fighting to sex, unless drugs are involved.
Researchers at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health have produced tiny brains made of human neurons and cells. These mini-brains could radically change how drugs are tested, replacing the many animals currently being used for neurological scientific research.
Whoa, did you feel that earthquake? Even if you didn’t, your phone did, and a new app from seismologists aims to capture those vibrations in your very own pocket seismology lab.
Picasa, Google’s photo storage service that you’ve probably forgotten exists, will officially die starting May 1. Which is fine by us, considering how great Google Photos is.
One of the very first scenes of 11.22.63 features a character explaining just what he has been doing with the awesome power of time travel: He’s been buying really good, really cheap meat from 1960 and bringing it back to the present to make hamburgers. After that, no other character ever really manages to top that…
The blackened skeletons of scorched trees jut out of the smoldering Earth like angry bee stings. A smell of ash, dust, and death hangs in the air. This isn’t a scene from a post apocalyptic movie. It’s part of a Tasmanian World Heritage Site that harbors some of the oldest trees on Earth.
Apple’s been real good to Dr. Dre. First they went and bought his shitty headphones company and now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, they’re bankrolling his new show, Vital Signs.
The smog hovering over many major cities is not just an unhealthy inconvenience. Breathing that air is killing millions of people. A recent study in Nature estimated three million people died annually due to air quality. That number may be closer to 5.5 million premature deaths per year, according to a new study being…
Tim Morgan, a commercial pilot with years of experience, has created a ten minute video he claims will help anyone safely land a 737 in an emergency. The notion that someone could plop down in a cockpit, with zero experience, and pilot a 737 to a safe landing is ludicrous, but that doesn’t make this video any less…
The Walking Dead has never been accused of being a happy show, but it’s one of the few series to be called “misery porn”—an exercise in watching characters face tragedy after tragedy until their eventual horrible deaths. I’ve never thought this was true... but having seen this Sunday’s mid-season premiere, I wonder if…

If you’re a stickler for details and accuracy, don’t assume that making your own cosplay props and costumes is cheaper than buying a replica. Often it can cost thousands of dollars to get it right, so Hasbro and Marvel are teaming up on a line of detailed role play accessories that will make accurate cosplay slightly…
The best movies are never what you think they are. You sit down expecting one thing, and then you get that, and so much more. One of the threads most commonly hidden in films, especially genre films, is a real romance. So in honor of Valentine’s Day, here are eight science fiction movies that are secretly romances.
Australia’s iconic koala—a species already threatened with extinction—is currently in the midst of a devastating chlamydia epidemic. Some scientists are now arguing that in order to save these cute marsupials from extinction, we may have to euthanize them in a massive cull.
The 2016 election has intensely focused on the debate surrounding the NSA’s endless amount of spying powers. But when Iowa voters recently voiced their opinion on who should be in charge of that murky world of cyber surveillance (among other things), they didn’t know they were already targets themselves.
Remember when Pluto was nothing more than a pixelated blob at the edge of our Solar System? We were so young then. But now, seven months after New Horizons’ historic flyby, scientists have amassed so much data on the former ninth planet that they’re constructing our first geologic maps of it.
