Back in September, Tesla announced it was planning to create upscale convenience stores for its supercharger stations around the country. It was all pretty vague, but this weekend, Elon Musk got a little more specific. Specifically, he’s thinking there should be roller skates while you charge.
For two years, Disney has had a deal in place with Dwayne Johnson to make a movie based on its iconic theme park ride, Jungle Cruise. Just when it was starting to seem like it would never happen, he’s now officially signed on—and production will begin in 2018.
The American home is replete with all manner of overpriced baubles and trinkets. But is your idlic suburban ranch house truly complete with an $85 rock in a bespoke leather pouch? Nordstrom thinks not.
Normally when reviewing a movie, you come up with a healthy mix of positive and negative things to say about it. In the case of Disney’s Moana, though, I’m really struggling to come up with the latter. It’s just that wonderful.
Using a Facebook News Feed of sorts, Ithaca Audio breaks down the history of rock and roll in 15 minutes using 384 rock stars, 84 guitarists, 64 songs, and 44 drummers in one crazy and totally awesome mashed up song. The Facebook timeline bit is cute but what’s really cool is how the songs blend together and into each…
Last week, classic rock band Styx met the man who named a moon after them - well, sort of. Pluto’s smallest moon, Styx, is really named after a mythological river, in keeping with International Astronomical Union naming conventions. But the SETI institute’s Mark Showalter, who discovered Styx (the moon) in 2012, says…
Your days of never getting shotgun are over, thanks to this new video from Numberphile that breaks down the best strategies for winning at Rock, Paper, Scissors.
It doesn't get any more metal than this. This headbanger filmed a video of himself spinning his head and making his hair whip in dizzying circles while working construction jobs. It's so hardcore badass but also incredibly goofy and fun all at the same time. He rocks out with his caulk out.
The most effective way to clean found water is to boil it. But, how do you do that if you don't have a metal container? Or any container at all? With a rock of course.
Congratulations, humanity: After millennia of building cathedrals and toiling over great works of art and science, we've finally created something that will far outlast us. It's called Plastiglomerate, a stone made out of molten plastic, and yes, we should probably be ashamed of ourselves.
This is just a stone. Not a photo of a stone with a Hubble Space Telescope image pasted over it. Not a hologram made inside some piece of glass. Not a portal to another dimension. Just a stone. It's like a some spacetime wizard captured a piece of the Universe and trapped it inside.
The man responsible for the greatest scifi album of all time is Ziggy Stardust. And the man responsible for that man is of course David Bowie, who explains his creation of his iconic 1970s glam rock character in this 1998 interview with Joe Smith, now animated by PBS's Blank on Blank.
Like music? Buy albums? Go to concerts? Wear band T-shirts? Sure. But do you have a thousand different band T-shirts that you can wear for a thousand days in a row? Didn't think so! Isac Walter does though. And he did it. He crushed it.
Frank Valenzuela is known to many people in Tucson as The Miner. He doesn't look for gold—although I'm sure that he would be happy to find it—but mineral awesomeness. Like this amazing rock, a chalcedony on chrysocolla stalactites, which he sold for $5,000.
We know that the rocks of Stonehenge were carried there from over 200 miles away, but we've never known why. Now, researchers say they believe it was for the special sonic qualities of a particular kind of stone—and that Stonehenge might have served as a bell-like instrument.
At last, NASA's scientists have revealed the mystery of the mysterious rock that materialized out of nowhere right in front of the Mars Curiosity rover—the infamous jelly doughnut rock rock that surprised everyone at mission control, prompting NASA Mars Exploration Rover lead scientist Steve Squyres to exclaim "wait a…
Left: a photo taken 3528 days after the Opportunity rover arrival to Mars. Right: the exact same spot 12 Mars days later. Notice the difference? NASA JPL scientists did too: "It's about the size of a jelly doughnut. It was a total surprise, we were like 'wait a second, that wasn't there before, it can't be right. Oh…
At the Zhangye Danxia Landform Geological Park in Gansu, China, tourists flock to see China's own version of the Grand Canyon: A mountain range of densely packed layers of minerals and rock that are dramatically striated into a layer cake of magenta, maroon, and lemon-colored stone.
We're used to thinking of the moon as a cold and unassuming lump of rock—but new research suggests that it could have been made of a strange magma mush for hundreds of millions of years before it solidified into the object we now see every night.
This song is supposed to be a hardcore rock song. And though it has the punching anger throat sounds of any respectable hardcore rock song, it so obviously doesn't have anything else that quite resemble the music of core hards. Instead, the song is mixed with an EDM dance track. That's because the band didn't pay its…
