This Is Our Best Look Yet At Saturn’s Moon Pandora

Pandora is one of Saturn’s many baby moons, far too runty to form a sphere under its own gravity. Instead, this 52-mile across space rock looks more like a fossilised glob of putty in closest image ever captured by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft. Read More >>

Here’s a Rare Photo of Donald Trump Using a Computer

Donald Trump is known for having never used a computer. Yes, he infamously writes his own tweets on his phone (and dictates them to lackeys before 7pm) but we have precious little evidence that he has actually sat down and used a desktop or laptop computer. Until now. Read More >>

Photo Series Puts the Size of Random Huge Objects in Perspective

This wonderful photo series comparing the size of things by Kevin Wisbith is a really fun way to earn some brain wrinkles, because it gives you a better sense of the true size of random buildings, ships, machines, and other objects.

This Ancient Commodore 64 is Still Being Used to Run a Car in Poland

We need to learn a lesson about needless consumerism from this auto repair shop in Gdansk, Poland, because it still uses a Commodore 64 to run its operations. Yes, the same Commodore 64 released 34 years ago that clocked in at 1 MHz and had 64 kilobytes of RAM. It came out in 1982, was discontinued in 1994, but it’s still used to run an actual company in 2016. That’s awesome. Read More >>

This is the Photo of the Summer

It’s been a rough summer so far. Shootings of civilians by police have caused Americans to ask how much more can be tolerated. And the sniper massacre of police officers in Dallas has put law enforcement on edge.
