Less than 24 hours from now, Samsung will reveal the Galaxy S8 to the world at its Unpacked event in New York. We'll be live blogging from the event, but you should also watch along with the live stream — so here's where to find it.
LEGO master builder ckb ckd needs to submit this meticulously detailed transforming Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Megazord set to LEGO Ideas, so the rest of us can vote to have the toymaker turn it into a real set we can one day spend lots of real money on.
Saturn's moon Enceladus is a beautiful mystery. Though it looks like a lonely ice ball, this moon is concealing what's probably an underground ocean, engulfing a rocky core. In fact, Enceladus's south pole contains active jets that shoot out water vapour and icy particles from this ocean, which were first observed by NASA's Cassini orbiter in 2005. These origin of these incredible jets, along with well-defined fractures along the south pole called "tiger stripes", is still being debated — but a team of scientists at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory have put forth an intriguing explanation.
One month from today, a record-setting race will be held in Toulouse, France. Teams from around the world will race nano-scale vehicles built from less than 100 individual atoms, at blistering speeds of up to five nanometres per hour. To put that in perspective, it would take these microscopic cars almost 23 years to travel 1mm.
If Uber was hoping the release of its first ever diversity report would deflect from its recent string of PR calamities, it thought wrong. Released Tuesday, the report and accompanying EEO filing are unimpressive at best, even by Silicon Valley's notoriously low standards for diversity. Women make up less than a third of the company, there are no black/Latinx workers in tech leadership, and underrepresented minorities are clustered in middle-income customer service jobs.
Poor Jason David Frank. There is maybe no other person on this Earth — except maybe Haim Saban — who is as passionate about Power Rangers as the man behind Tommy Oliver himself. Turns out, Frank is so proud of the series and his role in it, it got him into a tussle with security officers during the new movie's premiere.
Nearly a decade ago, Dallas police proposed a new program designed to get sex workers off the streets. Rather than just send them to gaol, police would set up shop at truck stops, accompanied by counsellors, social workers and nurses, and give the sex workers a choice of either prison or talking to a counsellor. But the program also had a grimmer, more ethically fraught component — collecting sex workers' DNA in hopes of identifying their bodies should they wind up dead.
The female menstrual cycle is a rite of passage into womanhood that for centuries has been shrouded in mystery and taboo. Pliny The Elder, for one, believed that menstrual blood could turn crop fields barren. Just last century, one scientist floated a theory that menstrual blood contained a poison that caused women to turn wine into vinegar. Let's not even start on the rumours that a burnt toad can ease a heavy flow.
The past few years have been incredible for physics discoveries. Scientists spotted the Higgs boson, a particle they'd been hunting for almost 50 years, in 2012, and gravitational waves, which were theorised 100 years ago, in 2016. This year, they're slated to take a picture of a black hole. So, thought some theorists, why not combine all of the craziest physics ideas into one, a physics turducken? What if we, say, try to spot the dark matter radiating off of black holes through their gravitational waves?
The need for more blood donations is a seemingly never-ending problem. Between interruptions to the donation process, fear of needles, rare blood types, and a general lack of awareness, life-saving blood supplies are difficult to keep stocked. But a team of researchers has found a way to manufacture artificial blood that could make a major impact on millions.
The US House of Representatives voted today to repeal rules preventing internet service providers from selling their customers' web browsing and app usage data without explicit consent. The Senate passed the same bill last week, which means the only obstacle that remains is a signature from President Trump — and the White House has already signalled he will do so.
Look, I'm gonna give it to you straight. I spent a solid 15-20 minutes trying to think of a reason this news belongs on Gizmodo. The only thing I can come up with is that it's a show that will one day be on the internet and COME ON it's a Nick Offerman and Amy Poehler craft show just take the news and be happy I'm spreading the word, okay?
