InSight, welcome to the 'gram, my clever robot friend.*

NASA's Mars lander has been stretching and snapping photos of the martian landscape and bits of itself since its successful landing on Nov. 26. It's even captured the dim rumbling of the Martian winds. However, it's been missing a crucial piece of the photography tool kit: The full-on selfie.

Για κάποιον παράξενο λόγο στην υπόθεση του Mega οι νόμοι δείχνουν απλώς υπάρχουν αλλά να μήν εφαρμόζονται.
Είτε πρόκειται για την καταπάτηση κάθε εδαφίου της εργατικής νομοθεσίας,είτε για την χωρίς καμία συνέπεια ανάλγητη στάση του τραπεζικού συστήματος,είτε για την αναιτιολόγητη διακοπή του σήματος απ΄τις συνδρομητικές πλατφόρμες κλπ
Το τελευταίο επεισόδιο σ’αυτό το mega-σήριαλ παίζεται από τις 30 Νοεμβρίου και μετά καθώς τη μέρα εκείνη εξέπνευσε και το όριο ενός μήνα που δίνει ο νόμος για την έκδοση απόφασης περί ειδικής εκκαθάρισης μετά τη σχετική συνεδρίαση της 30ης Οκτωβρίου.Παρ’αυτά,αν και ήδη διανύουμε την δεύτερη εβδομάδα “παράνομης” καθυστέρησης, κανείς δεν είναι σε θέση να απαντήσει τι ακριβώς συμβαίνει για μια ακόμη φορά στο παρασκήνιο.

DC movies continue to turn the tide with the release of Aquaman, the first solo feature for the maritime member of the Justice League. While it won’t be brandishing as high a Tomatometer score as Wonder Woman, reviews for the James Wan-helmed superhero adventure are mostly positive out of the gate. Aquaman certainly sounds ridiculous, even from the raves, as this is a whole lot of movie (and maybe more). If you just take in the ambitious spectacle and enjoy Jason Momoa’s swagger, you’re in for a wild treat, my man.

Hundreds of police officers are hunting a gunman after three people were killed and 12 others wounded in a shooting in the eastern French city of Strasbourg.

The shooting happened close to a popular Christmas market near one of the central squares, Place Kléber.

France's counter terrorism prosecutor has opened an investigation.

A new collaborative study led by a research team at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, University of California, Los Angeles and the University of Washington could provide engineers new design rules for creating microelectronics, membranes and tissues, and open up better production methods for new materials. At the same time, the research, published online Dec. 6 in the journal Science, helps uphold a scientific theory that has remained unproven for over a century.

Just as children follow a rule to line up single file after recess, some materials use an underlying rule to assemble on surfaces one row at a time, according to the study.

Nucleation—that first formation step—is pervasive in ordered structures across nature and technology, from cloud droplets to rock candy. Yet despite some predictions made in the 1870s by the American scientist J. Willard Gibbs, researchers are still debating how this basic process happens.

NASA’s new Mars lander has captured the first sounds of the “really unworldly” Martian wind.

The Jet Propulsion Laboratory released audio clips of the alien wind Friday. The low-frequency rumblings were collected by the InSight lander during its first week of operations at Mars.

The wind is estimated to be blowing 10 mph to 15 mph (16 kph to 24 kph). These are the first sounds from Mars that are detectable by human ears, according to the researchers.

“Reminds me of sitting outside on a windy summer afternoon ... In some sense, this is what it would sound like if you were sitting on the InSight lander on Mars,” Cornell University’s Don Banfield told reporters.

The standard cosmological model known as LambdaCDM can only explain 5% of the observable Universe. The remaining 95% is famously made up almost entirely of two invisible components called dark matter and dark energy. Yet the physical nature of these two components remains a mystery. A new study by University of Oxford researcher Jamie Farnes suggests both dark phenomena can be unified into a single substance -- a negative-mass ‘dark fluid.’

As expected, the UK Parliament has released a set of internal Facebook emails that were seized as part of its investigation into the company's data-privacy practices. The 250-page document, which includes conversations between Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and other high-level executives, is a window into the social media giant's ruthless thinking from 2012 to 2015 -- a period of time when it was growing (and collecting user data) at an unstoppable rate. While Facebook was white-listing companies like Airbnb, Lyft and Netflix to get special access to people's information in 2013, it went out of its way to block competitors such as Vine from using its tools.

Royal Dutch Shell caved in to growing investor pressure over climate change on Monday, setting out plans to introduce industry-leading carbon emissions targets linked to executive pay.

Rivals BP and Total have already set short-term targets on reducing carbon dioxide emissions, but these are limited to their own operations.

Shell’s targets, which will be introduced in 2020, will be more extensive with inclusion of the so-called Scope 3 emissions from the burning of fuels sold to millions of customers around the world, the company said.

Monday’s move marks a change of tack for Shell Chief Executive Ben van Beurden, who had previously resisted setting hard goals, saying it would be “foolhardy” to expose Shell to legal challenges.

Shareholders have criticized Shell for previously setting long-term “ambitions” to halve carbon dioxide emissions by 2050, which lacked binding targets for implementation.

Going into this season, all the buzz surrounding the Los Angeles Lakers was about LeBron James, and rightfully so. However, there was also a great deal of excitement for Brandon Ingram and his potential to be the No. 2 option to James.

Ingram, a former second-overall pick, had shown flashes in his first two seasons with the Lakers. Fans were also hopeful that 21-year-old would start to put it all together this season because of an offseason of weights and skills training with Micah Lancaster, who worked with Victor Oladipo before his breakout season with the Indiana Pacers.
