Steve Carell’s ‘SNL’ NASA broadcast goes terribly wrong after a breach

Saturday Night Live’s Captain Ed McGovern (Steve Carell) thought live streaming to children’s classrooms across America from the International Space Station would be great. It was not. After an unfortunate breach in the system left all the monkeys (and one cat) on-board frozen solid and flying around, things got a bit hectic. And while we’re...CONTINUE READING

The EPA completely axed its climate change websites. But why are NASA’s still live?

Sometime during the night of Oct. 16, 2018, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) eliminated more than 80 climate change websites — many of the last vestiges to the agency’s online recognition of climate change.  The deletions — caught by the watchdog group Environmental Data and Governance Initiative (EDGI) — show a growing disparity between...CONTINUE READING

How to spot internet alien panic from a light-year away

Perhaps you’ve heard: Alien panic is sweeping the internet.  You can’t go more than a week or two without a new and ridiculous story about life maybe being out there in the universe going viral, spawning breathless coverage and debunks alike. It’s exhausting. This week, all that alien panic is swirling around a story citing...CONTINUE READING

The oceans, the true keepers of climate change, may meet our grimmest estimates

Earth, our ocean-dominated world, stores away a vast majority of the planet’s accumulating heat in the seas.  In fact, over 90 percent of the planet’s rising warmth — specifically trapped by human-created greenhouse gas emissions — is absorbed by the deep, salty waters. For the last half-century, scientists have worked to put a more precise...CONTINUE READING

These Halloween pumpkins carved by NASA engineers are out of this world

Most of us would come at a Halloween pumpkin simply with a sharp knife and a will to succeed. Others would come equipped with NASA-level engineering skills. Every year, engineers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California gather for the ultimate pumpkin carving contest. This year’s competition went down on Monday, and guys,...CONTINUE READING

That strange, rectangular iceberg looks a lot less rectangular from space

Floating off the Antarctic coast, there’s a profoundly angular iceberg that has unwittingly become the object of internet intrigue.  Though scientists in Antarctica regularly spot these steep-walled “tabular” icebergs — many nearly square or rectangular — they certainly look like bizarre, unnatural forms in such a wild Earth environment. Seen from space, this particular iceberg...CONTINUE READING

That rectangular iceberg NASA found is weird as hell, and it’s not the only one

Flying 1,500 feet above the Antarctic coast, NASA scientists recently passed over a bizarrely straight-edged rectangular iceberg and snapped a picture of the floating slab.  While an intriguing image for the many of us who don’t take aerial surveys of the changing, cracking, and melting Antarctic coast, these “tabular” icebergs are a common sight for...CONTINUE READING
