The moon could be the next living hub in space, but there’s one problem we need to tackle before we go there: air on the lunar surface.
The European Space Agency (ESA) recently set up a prototype oxygen plant at the European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in the Netherlands, which started to produce oxygen out of simulated moondust.
Helping future #Moon settlers, a prototype plant has been set up at ESA’s technical centre in Noordwijk, th...more
At first I was horrified by the live-action Pokemon of Detective Pikachu. But then that ended up being one of my favorite movies of the year. So maybe this CGI remake of Mewtwo Strikes Back (which has a relatively good plot) will be a similar surprise.
We’ll see for ourselves when it lands on Netflix next month.
2019 is set to be a real trip for Pokemon fans. We recently learned about Pokemon Sword and Shield, the next entries in the core RPG series. Normally a new generation is exciting enough on its own, but this is the first time the main series has appeared...more
The last proper Half-Life game was released in 2007. 13 Years ago. If you were born then there’s a very good chance you’re a gamer now, a gamer who grew up hearing tales of Valve’s legendary PC game series that abruptly vanished.
And now you may be wondering why all of these old folks are cautiously optimistic about Half-Life: Alyx, the surprise virtual reality revival starring Gordon Freeman’s capable partner Alyx Vance. To play that game this March you’ll need to shell out for a pricey VR headset like the Valve Index. However, right now you can catch up with the res...more
Riverdale returns to the airwaves this week to close out the show’s fourth season, and if you’d told me ten years ago that the Archie Comics universe would be enjoying a creative resurgence I would have called you crazy. But a variety of modern spins have made the adventures of America’s favorite red-headed teen stuck in a love triangle feel fresh and new. If you want to broaden your collection of Archie swag, here are eleven picks for your toy shelf.

Though Black Lightning didn’t have its own “Crisis on Infinite Earths” episode, the crossover is affecting this show in a big way.
For the last two seasons, Black Lightning existed in its own Earth, not interacting at all with the rest of the CW-verse. That started to change in December’s midseason finale when a wave of antimatter appeared and pulled Jen into two alternate realities at once. As soon as she worked things out with her… selves, the wave swa...more

I’ve been writing about TV on this site for about three years now. I’ve gotten paid to watch a lot of good TV and some pretty bad TV as well. Sometimes, like the final episodes of Game of Thrones or the “Cult” season of American Horror Story, it felt like a miserable day at the office. Fortunately, there were always shows that made up for those days, like Better Call Saul or The Mandalorian. Not even the best episodes of those shows even came close to the experience of seeing HBO’s Watchmen f...more

At this point, I donât need to convince you all how popular Baby Yoda is. Youâve shown me. Every article I write on the little green muppet gets about three times as much traffic as my other pieces, even though I of course love all *my* babies equally. But now it seems I may finally be able to write about a baby not named Yoda, thanks to artist Leonardo Viti giving me a reprieve in the form of Baby Jabba.
Leonardo Viti is a 3D artist and sculptor that focuses on highly stylized, yet detailed c...more

Tesla Model S (via Tesla Inc.)
Tesla calls bullshit on claims that its cars are prone to “sudden unintended acceleration.”
A December petition asking the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to investigate and recall 500,000 Tesla vehicles is “completely false,” according to the automaker.
“We investigate every single incident where the driver alleges to us that their vehicle accelerated contrary to their input,” the Tesla Team wrote in an angry blog post. “And in every case where we had the vehicl...more
