3 hours 34 min ago

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.

3 hours 39 min ago
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.

NASA’s new space tourism posters are spellbinding

3 hours 46 min ago

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.
