We're just over a month out from the next season of Daredevil , but the wait has been excruciating for fans of the blind superhero. After all, Marvel diehards binged all thirteen episodes of Jessica Jones three months ago, and the next Marvel movie doesn't hit theaters until May, so you can understand why even the shortest teaser would have fans excited. READ MORE: Super Bowl movie trailers: Captain America 3, Independence Day 2, and 7 more And that's exactly what fans got over the weekend, when the official Daredevil Twitter shared a short clip featuring the costumed vigilante as well as an unfamiliar (but exceptionally important) voice. Yes, that "bang" that you hear at the end of
Samsung's next major smartphone, the Galaxy S7, is mere weeks from being unveiled at Mobile World Congress. And as is usually the case, we're getting an early look through various leaks of press renders and now, some actual photos of the S7 and S7 Edge. They look convincing enough, anyway. From the rear shot of the S7 (obtained by reviewdao.vn), we can see it'll have the same curved glass back as the Note 5. And unlike Samsung's existing lineup, this phone actually looks black, as opposed to the dark blue of the S6 series.

From the rear shot of the S7 (obtained by reviewdao.vn), we can see it'll have the same curved glass back as the Note 5.

Don't worry, we aren't about to go extinct like the dinosaurs. That said, a 30-meter wide asteroid will be passing Earth so close early next month that we might be able to see it in the sky, NASA has announced. And it might even hit Earth at some point in 2017. DON’T MISS: The 10 best Super Bowl commercials of 2016 (and the one worst Super Bowl ad) 2013 TX68 will either pass as close as 18,000km (11,000 miles) of Earth, or about 14 million kilometers (9 million miles) on March 5th. The asteroid approached Earth mostly during the daytime, which made monitoring it rather difficult. This is why we have no idea how close it’s going to be.
Today, Seattle design firm Invisible Creature — which has done work for clients like Nike, Seattle Weekly, Target, and many more — released three gorgeous new space-themed travel posters commissioned by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory for a 2016 calendar that will be given to NASA staff, scientists, engineers, and government officials. JPL will also release digital copies of each month's artwork for free, but you can buy physical prints of Invisible Creature's posters on the firm's website. The idea is not terribly new — JPL has commissioned posters, infographics, and other artwork in the past, and you can dig through a pretty extensive archive on the lab's website.
Somehow, despite the fact that the Internet has spent the past month and a half deconstructing each and every moment from Star Wars: The Force Awakens , there are still things we've missed. Earlier this week, Nerdist sat down with Skywalker Sound sound editors Matthew Wood and David Acord to discuss the film, and ended up uncovering a few interesting tidbits along the way.

The first topic of conversation to stand out is the fact that Kylo Ren's "Force rumble," as they call it, is actually David Acord's cat purring. They took that sound, pitched it and slowed it down in order to create
As compelling as Samsung's Gear VR is, it supports only a few premium Samsung phones. Google apparently wants to suck a lot more people into the virtual reality world, as the company is reportedly developing a new headset made of plastic (not cardboard) that will support a wide range of Android phones. According to the Financial Times, Google wants to build on the success of its low-tech Google Cardboard device, which has surpassed 5 million units shipped.
The NSA is creating a Directorate of Operations over the coming months to fuse together its offensive and defensive cybersecurity teams, according to a speech given at the agency today. Essentially, the team that collects information about system vulnerabilities in order to exploit them for espionage purposes will work alongside the team that collects information about vulnerabilities in order to shield US networks from cyberattacks. The project is described as a two-year plan to help the agency better address national security threats, especially surrounding its cyber missions.
