What's Your Favourite Scene From Star Wars?

It’s May The Fourth, which means anyone with some Star Wars-related shit to sell is going to be all up in your social media with their ads. Forget them, though. Let’s remember why we all fell in love with it to start with: cool sci-fi scenes! So tell us: what’s your favourite Star Wars scene?


Mystery Solved: Here's What Sank The HMAS Sydney 74 Years Ago

The rapid sinking of the HMAS Sydney back in 1941 by Germany’s HSK Kormoran has been a controversial topic for many years. While the captain of the Kormoran stated a direct salvo to the bridge quickly disabled the light cruiser, the account was only confirmed definitively days ago by high resolution images and video captured by Curtin University.


This Is What It Might Be Like To Fly Through A Giant Space Habitat

Want to live in a space city? You can’t move there next week, but artist Micah Ganske has designed an incredible VR experience where you drive a small spacecraft through an O’Neill cylinder, a massive tube-shaped space habitat that spins to create gravity so that people can build cities and farms on its inner surface.


Famous Cephalopod-On-Woman Sex Scene Reveals Octopus Isn't That Into Her

Tako to Ama (or, Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife) is a beautiful woodcut illustration from 1814 by Katsushika Hokusai and the ancestor of Japanese tentacle porn. I’m not going to discuss the woman.

The Best Way To Ruin The New Force Awakens Trailer? Jar Jar Binks.

Video: You know what made the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer especially great? A distinct lack of Jar Jar Binks. But some people, it seems, just want to watch the world burn. It’s amazing what a little video editing can do. The new Force Awakens trailer, for instance, was an instantly loveable global sensation. But add everyone’s least favourite bumbling goon to the mix and lop off the Harrison Ford / Chewbacca cameo, and suddenly, it’s a nightmare.


This Crazy Bridge In Japan Looks More Like A Terrifying Roller Coaster

If you look straight onto the Eshima Ohashi bridge in Japan, the ridiculously steep incline makes it look more like a roller coaster than a road for cars to drive on.

An Ageing Cold War Policy May Make It Easier To Hack Nuclear Warheads 

Floppy disks. Cheating schemes. Drunken bar antics. The security of America’s nuclear arms is… less than perfect. And now, more critics are questioning the outdated policies that regulate them.


The Russian Spacecraft Falling To Earth Poses No Danger

A Russian spacecraft is spinning uncontrollably around Earth after it broke down travelling to the International Space Station with food and fuel supplies. The vessel, Progress M-27M, will burn up when re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere in a week or two, although there is a small chance that parts of it could crash down on the planet. The risk to us humans is minute — we have survived far greater objects falling back towards Earth before.
