Typhoon Nepartak hit Taiwan Friday morning and reached winds of over 150 mph. According to the Weather Channel, three people have died and over 100 were injured due to the super typhoon. Seeing the incredible strength of the storm is truly terrifying—you can see the powerful winds tossing cars, shaking buildings, and…
Taiwan is bracing as a category 5 super typhoon bears down on its coastline. Typhoon Nepartak is expected to bring torrential rainfall and enormous waves in its wake, meaning Taiwan, and subsequently mainland China, could be in for some serious flooding. This comes just days after central China experienced one of the…
Typhoon Haiyan was one of the most devastating tropical cyclones in history. The Category 5 typhoon killed thousands and ravaged the Philippines with billions in damages that it’s still recovering from. Here’s a brief glimpse of what it was like to be inside the typhoon. It’s absolutely frightening.
Artist Sam L. Rolls made this brilliant homage to both the Royal Air Force and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The rendering depicts Royal Air Force Chinook, Tornado, Spitfire, and Typhoon combat aircraft charging across the water as if they were X-Wings from The Force Awakens.
To remote sensing scientists, peering directly into the eye of a tropical storm is like hitting a hole in one. That’s exactly what NASA’s CloudSat satellite did on May 16th, completing a stunning overpass of Typhoon Dolphin as the category 4 storm churned across the west Pacific.
One of the biggest sticking points when it comes to weather forecasts is the public's confusion over the terms "hurricane," "typhoon," and "cyclone." Since they're three different names, people think they're three different kinds of storm. Here's a quick explainer on what's in a name.
Cool selfie of an Eurofighter Typhoon jet fighter pilot looking all badass and futuristic, like snapshot from some future Halo game cutscene. I wish I had the high resolution to print this out on a large fine metal paper.
This is the super typhoon, dubbed Neoguri, that's currently threatening Japan. It looks intimidating, even from the comfort of the International Space Station.
Fully armed NATO and Russian aircraft keep having encounters as the tension between both powers increase. These photos were taken yesterday by RAF Eurofighters over Baltic airspace. They intercepted four SU-27 Flanker fighters and a Tupolev Tu22 Backfire bombers, among others.
You'd think that after winning the Pritzker Prize, one of the highest awards in design, most architects would sit back and coast on their accolades. What did Japanese architect Shigeru Ban do? He built these beautiful cardboard houses for typhoon refugees.
Strap yourself in your chair. Put down the coffee mug. And make sure you have an empty stomach because you're about to take a ride in a flying roller coaster. Or well, the closest thing there is to a flying roller coaster. The video below gives you the backseat cockpit view of an ultra low flying RAF's Typhoon…
So 20th Century Fox contacted professional video maker and friend of Gizmodo Casey Neistat to make a video for them about Ben Stiller's upcoming movie The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Cool, that kind of stuff happens all the time to him. But instead of using the money to make a movie about the movie, Neistat used his…
This is so sad. Satellite imagery has captured what the Philippines looked like before and after Typhoon Haiyan and it's absolutely tragic. Towns, homes, people's lives have just been completely decimated. There's nothing left. To see the total destruction from above like this is heartbreaking. One day everything is…
Haiyan was probably the strongest recorded typhoon to ever make landfall when it crashed through the Philippines on November 8th—and it looks just as intimidating from 22,000 miles away.
In conventional combat aircraft, the target generally needs to be in both the pilot's field of vision and within the sights of the plane itself. That is, the plane needed to be pointed in the general direction of whatever you're shooting at. But in the case of the new Eurofighter Typhoon, pilots can squeeze off a few…
A series of unfortunate events: a confused helicopter pilot accidentally gives a signal that he's been hijacked. British RAF fighters are scrambled so quickly to shoot the thing down, they go supersonic. Brits down below fear explosions and earthquakes. Boom.
The Brits are not taking the defense of this year's Olympics lightly. The RAF is in full alert, ready to intercept anything that flies off their planned path or into prohibited air space. The Battle of Britain 2!
While the Red October may not have been an actual submarine, the Russian Typhoon class that it's based on certainly is. Turns out, Hollywood didn't have to embellish many details for the film—Typhoons really can sneak up on you.
While predicting the next big earthquake is probably impossibility, there's still a lot we can learn about what causes severe earthquakes. We've now identified the trigger for some of the most destructive recent earthquakes, including the 2007 quake in Haiti.
