Maybe the judges got a peek at Britney’s “Versace on the Floor” video. (It’s a cover of the…

Kepler caught strange supernova: Sudden surge, rapid decay

Enlarge / Kepler was made to find planets, but it's found other uses. The Kepler planet-hunting telescope was designed to do one thing: gather data from a single portion of the sky often enough to catch rare, brief events.

Academy Awards Adding “Best Genre” Categories For Next Year’s Oscars!

Horror invaded this year’s Oscars.

Get Out played like a classic episode of “The Twilight Zone”, while The Shape of Water was rooted in the early Universal Monster movies, especially Creature From the Black Lagoon.

April Fool's Day is back, again. But is it possible the playing field may have shifted in the last 12 months?
