As we remember the now-officially-dead Opportunity rover this week, one fact keeps sticking out to me: That machine travelled a whopping 45km across the surface of another planet. And it did so in short, nerve-wracking spurts.

Spread over the course of 14 years, 45km may not sound like that much, but consider the many obstacles Oppy faced — including an agonising 38 days stuck spinning its wheels in a soft sand dune.

Is it even possible to go for a swim without at some point humming the two-note Jaws theme in your head as you approach other swimmers?

Think of the ultimate tool for separating grownup ‘80s kids from their hard-earned cash and it’s hard to imagine it will look any different than what Hasbro’s revealing at the New York Toy Fair this weekend: A Transformers meets Ghostbusters mashup that sees Ecto-1 transforming into a ghost-trapping robot toy.

In December of last year, Rolling Stone reported that at a Taylor Swift concert at the 2018 Rose Bowl, there was a mysterious kiosk playing clips of the singer that doubled as a facial recognition system to flag any of Swift’s stalkers.
