Watching things launch into space is awesome. Watching things launch into space from space is even more awesome.

The rocket was carrying 48 more satellites, which it successfully deployed into the Earth’s orbit.

The video above is actually a series of still images, taken one second at a time, stitched together into one mesmerizing sequence.  Read more…

Teen Groot will steal every 'Avengers: Infinity War' scene he's in, just watch

TwitterFacebook

You thought Baby Groot was a stone-cold scene thief? Just wait.

There’s so much to unpack from a second viewing of the Avengers: Infinity War footage that first played at D23 last and came out for an encore at Comic-Con on Saturday night, but there was one thing I utterly missed the first time that fully stood out the second:

Teen Groot.

We first met the brooding, game-obsessed teenaged Groot in one of the post-credits scenes from Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2, when Peter Quill was giving him a fatherly talking-to, and he wan’t having any of it. Well, he’s barely aged at all by the time we get to Infinity War — and so settled into the background that I didn’t see him the first time around. Read more…

Watch the Sony Xperia XZ Premium passing scratch and bend tests like the premium phone that it is

Officially released in the US last month, the Xperia XZ Premium is one of Sony’s most expensive smartphones to land stateside, as it’s being sold for $799.99 unlocked. At this price, one would expect the XZ Premium to be a very well made handset, and it looks like it is.

The durability test that you can watch below was made by JerryRigEverything – famous on YouTube for his non-bogus tests. As you can see in the video, the front and rear of the XZ Premium (including its cameras) are protected by Gorilla Glass 5 – this makes the phone as scratch-resistant as Apple’s and Samsung’s latest flagships. …
