SpaceX’ ‘Dragon capsule’ to launch ESA’s new toy for studying tropical lightning storms from the International Space Station

  • By: Vincent van den Born
  • Almost every second, lightning triggers powerful electrical bursts in our atmosphere. But the inner workings of lightning are still unknown. Indeed, when Andreas Mogensen directed a high-resolution camera towards a gigantic thunderstorm, while flying over India at 28.800 km/h in 2015, he made spectacular, first of its kind footage. He caught a blue jet, repeatedly shooting up into space towards the upper layers of the atmosphere – as high as 40 Km.

  • It’s been a long time in the making lads, but here it is: the future of European online media. The Old Continent is designed to push back against the Social Justice and Identity Politics agenda of VICE, Huffington Post and BuzzFeed, while at the same time offering a centre right, more fun and light-hearted alternative to Breitbart’s and Infowars’ high octane polemics and conspiracies that don’t get anyone laid.

    Video – Putin just presented a new Intercontinental Ballistic Missile with “almost unlimited range” due to on-board nuclear reactor

  • By: Timon Dias
  • “Putin then went on to weapons systems that were not previously known to the public. One is a yet-to-be-named cruise missile with an almost unlimited range. This is achieved thanks to a highly-efficient on-board miniaturized nuclear reactor, which powers the flight. Such a missile can fly low enough to avoid early detection, can change course to avoid enemy anti-missile assets along its path, and maneuver to pierce the anti-missile systems protecting its target.”

    Video! Max Verstappen’s new 2018 Red Bull ride looks perfect, even with that weird halo thing on top

  • By: Wolf
  • Our favourite two F1 boys, Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo, got their new car revealed today and it will be called the Aston Martin-Red Bull Racing-TAG Heuer RB14. Where the previous car, the RB13, was basically the F1 version of a Red Bull soda can, the new one will go for dark blue, and that’s awesome. But, don’t get attached too much, these colours are temporary, the real colours will be revealed next week.
