SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft is making its first cargo trip back to the International Space Station (ISS) since its June attempt ended unexpectedly with the ship exploding itself, and its cargo, in mid-air. Watch today’s launch happen live right here at 4:43 p.m. (EDT). Don’t be late!
Ever since Sam Wilson took on the mantle of Captain America, his former superhero alter ego of the Falcon has lain dormant. That is, until next week, when The Falcon returns… as Joaquin Torres, a man who is literally part-falcon.
Last month, Spider-Gwen’s return to the “All-New, All-Different” Marvel Universe gave us a brand new iteration of Captain America. But the second issue of the series has lifted the lid on this new Cap and her allies, and it’s every bit as wonderful as you imagined it to be.
While there’s been many rumors circulating about just who is fighting who in the next Captain America movie—but newly emerged promotional art has given our first look at just who is standing with Captain America or Iron Man in Marvel’s impending superheroic dustup. There’s even a surprising face or two... spoilers…
The clash of superheroes movie doesn’t come out until May 2016. That hasn’t stopped the Internet.
To send really big rockets into space, you need equally enormous buildings to construct them in. Enter SpaceX’s new hangar, under construction right next to the pad that used to send Apollo missions to the Moon.
By now, you’ve probably heard that SpaceX’s third attempt at landing a rocket on a drone barge met the same watery fate as numbers one and two. And, you’ve probably seen the long-distance video of the landing attempt. But to rub just a little more salt in Elon Musk’s wound, here’s the leaked video shot from the barge…
BBC's Steve Leonard wanted to discover who dives the fastest in free fall: A peregrine falcon—known to be fastest animal on Earth—or two skydivers in tandem. To test that they jumped off a hot air balloon from 10,000 feet. Here's what happened:
Joe Quesada stopped by The Colbert Report (which at least makes more sense than The View) to announce that Sam Wilson will be taking over as Captain America.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier introduced us to the cinematic version of the high-flying hero Falcon. But before he could take to the screen, the filmmakers had to decide what his wings would look like. Would he look like a bird or a plane?
We've only seen bits of concept art, plus a few wingless shots of the Falcon mid-flight in the trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. But thanks to the new shots of his toy we can now inspect this super's wings up close.
New Scientist has a story on how peregrine falcons rely on a sailors' trick to hunt down their prey. The video is like watching one of those World War II dogfighting films.
"This is the little baby [bunny] we've been feeding for a week," says the mom. "Oh, there's your mommy, go get her" she continues, leaving the bunny on the grass. Too bad a falcon was quietly gliding above this lovely scene. Nature!
Goodbye giant red wings, hello sexy Anthony Mackie in camouflage and straps. Here's your first look at the newly revamped Falcon from Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Very little is known plotwise about Captain America's sequel, Captain America: The Winter Soldier. But we do know that Steve Rogers will be interacting with a handful of classic Captain America characters, such as Bucky Barnes and the Falcon, played by Anthony Mackie. In a recent interview with AICN, Mackie revealed…
This beautiful falcon has decided to cross species lines and share a snack with its dog companion. I love how the dog waits humbly under the falcon's perch for table scraps. The falcon carefully pulls bits of meat off the bones of the animal its eating, then tosses them to the dog. This falcon is clearly a pet (you…
ICBMs are great and all, but since they are used almost exclusively for nuclear strikes, launching one would practically guarantee WWIII. So, to get non-nuclear ordnance anywhere in the world in under an hour, DARPA is developing the reusable, hypersonic Falcon delivery system.
NASA and SpaceX have a date for the launch of the Dragon spacecraft that will reach the International Space Station: Saturday, May 19, from 4:55 AM ET/1:55 AM ET. It will be a historic moment. Here's what will happen:
Last summer, the Pentagon's Falcon HTV-2 glider—which the Air Force says can fly from New York to LA in under 12 minutes, disappeared. Nobody knew why! Now we know why: it went so fast it ripped itself apart.
