Tomorrow is officially Black Friday, but you can get a head start on the shopping with a ton of deals that are already available. You can find all of the best discount throughout the weekend on our main Black Friday post, but these are our 15 favorites that went live today.
Today is not just Thanksgiving in America, but also Doctor Who’s 54th anniversary. That means while the U.S. has spent its day cramming Turkey into its collective self, well wishes of many happy returns have been sent to one of the U.K.’s most venerable scifi shows. Naturally, Tom Baker’s the best, by the virtue of…
Dolly the Sheep made biotech history in 1996 when she became the first animal cloned from adult somatic cells. She lived to the age of seven, which is young for sheep, leading scientists to speculate that her premature death had something to do with her being a clone. New research now shows this wasn’t the case.
At some point or another, we were all bitten by the Star Wars bug—er—sandflea. We were dragged to a theater by a cool uncle, handed an N64 controller to play Star Wars Episode I: Pod Racer (let’s be kind to those whose first exposure may not have been the original trilogy), or just caught a marathon over Thanksgiving…
There are, apparently, two things on this Earth (on multiple Earths, technically) that can unite the disparate heroes of the CW/DC universe. The first is socially obligated wedding appearances. The other? Fighting alternate-universe Nazis.
Every year, NASA’s Operation Icebridge plumbs the wonders and woes of the ice at both poles, and 2017 is no different. Icebridge’s Antarctic field mission kicked off about a month ago, and satellites and planes are hard at work monitoring glaciers, ice sheets, and sea ice.
Chewbacca, how dare you.
The real world is... well, you know. And at some point or another we all need a break from it. Helping your loved ones transport themselves to an entirely different realm is a gift just about anyone would enjoying receiving this holiday season, and these gifts are just the ticket.
It’s easy to look at Blade Runner 2049’s stunning use of shadow and light and declare it a part of the scifi noir genre. But it’s really the film’s narrative and thematic execution that grounds it in the longstanding noir storytelling tradition.
Thanksgiving will never be the same for families in Flint, Michigan, the city that made national news in 2015 for its lead-contaminated drinking water. Mae Collins, 50, is no exception. Her annual family tradition has changed drastically since 2014, when city officials switched the city’s drinking water source to the…
For the first time since Prime Day, Amazon’s offering a sitewide discount on all physical books they sell; save $5 on any order of $20 or more with code GIFTBOOK17.
Science would probably progress a whole lot slower without the infinite human imagination. We talk frequently about times that science fiction has predicted coming science advances. But this time, the National Science Foundation has let its scientists do the imagining.
The Superman we’ve seen in DC’s movie universe has been...let’s say controversial at times. It’s a characterization that has been built more around the character’s power, and reactions to that power, than the ideals he champions. But after Justice League, Henry Cavill thinks its time for a Superman story that leans…
It’s been a very good year for fans of Neil Gaiman. American Gods was excellent, there’s Good Omens on the way, and now another of his works is being brought to life on radio: his 2005 fantasy novel Anansi Boys.
You don’t need to stand in line at the crack of dawn or risk being trampled to death to score the best Black Friday deals; they’re all available online, and we’re collecting the best ones right here.
If you’re the type of person who gets caught up in decorating competitions around the holidays, be thankful you don’t live near Colby Powell and his family. Instead of inflatable Santas or a towering tree, they built a light-up Millennium Falcon on the roof of their house that measures almost 29 feet long.
When I first saw the end credits scene of Justice League, it was incredibly exciting. The scene sets up some intriguing possibilities for the future of the DC universe and does so with several surprises. However, the more and more I’ve thought about it over the past few days, the more and more it’s been bugging me.
For humans, the legend of Bigfoot is one for the ages. But what kind of legend would Yetis have? Well, one about us, of course.
Dinah Lance made her animated debut in Justice League: Unlimited, but she almost became a part of the DC animated universe well before that—she was slated for an episode of the fabled Batman: The Animated Series. But it was not to be, thanks to mandates that the show needed fewer canaries, and more... well, Robins.
