Google maps out moons and planets across the Solar System

Google Maps has expanded to a range of other planets and moons in our Solar System, ...

Google Maps is both amazing and a little terrifying at times. Starting from your own front porch, close enough to read the numbers on the letterbox, you can then zoom right out to see your neighborhood, then the suburb, city, state, country, and eventually the entire planet with a quick scroll of a mouse wheel. Not content to just map out almost every corner of the Earth, Google has now added the ability to explore 12 other worlds in our little corner of the galaxy.

Hatch-access bicycle rack uses mountain bike tech

The Glide rack moves bikes back from the hatch, and is claimed to be lighter than ...

Bike racks that mount on your vehicle's trailer hitch may be handy, but they can certainly make it difficult to access the rear hatch – particularly when they're loaded with bikes. While some such racks do fold down or swing to one side, Saris' new Glide takes a different approach. As its name implies, it just kinda "glides" back out of the way.

Neutron star smashup produces gravitational waves and light in unprecedented stellar show​

For the first time, astronomers from around the world have detected gravitational waves caused by two ...

The 2015 detection of gravitational waves – ripples in the very fabric of space and time – was one of the biggest scientific breakthroughs in a century. But because it was caused by two black holes merging, the event was all but invisible, detectable indirectly via the LIGO facility. Now a team of scientists has announced the fifth detection of gravitational waves, but there's a groundbreaking difference this time around: the ripples were caused by the collision of two neutron stars, meaning the event was accompanied by light, radio, and other electromagnetic signals for the first time.

Since the Industrial Revolution in the early 1800s, atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations have been steadily increasing, but 2015 and 2016 saw an unprecedented spike. Now, a NASA study has analyzed data gathered by the atmosphere-monitoring satellite, the Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2), over more than two years, and pinpointed the cause: the El Nino weather effect caused certain tropical regions to release far more CO2 than they normally would.
