p When new discoveries on Mars are made you typically see the name “Curiosity” associated with them, but NASA has another rover cruising around the martian surface, and it just arrived at one of the most confusing places on the planet.The pint-sized rover is now investigating “Perseverance Valley” — a massive gash in the martian surface that researchers still can’t fully explain.The rover, Opportunity, was launched way back in 2003, and was only expected to carry out its observation and research mission for a few months.Today, over 13 years since it was expected to retire, the rover still functions, and NASA continues to send it on new tours of the red planet.Opportunity, which is much, much smaller than its car-sized Curiosity cousin, was sent to Perseverance Valley in hopes of shedding some light on its origins.Scientists studying Mars know that the valley was carved by some dramatic force, but with a handful of possibilities including water, wind, and even muddy rocks, there’s still no clear answer.

p Den nyupptäckta, jordlika planeten Proxima b kan ha ett klimat som gör den lämplig för liv.Proxima b, som ligger bredvid solens närmaste granne i världsrymden, dvärgstjärnan Proxima Centauri, upptäcktes i fjol.Dessutom är avståndet dit 4,2 ljusår.Det är så nära vi kan komma en planet utanför vårt eget solsystem.Det innebär att det är komplicerat att få mer exakta kunskaper om hur pass jordlik planeten egentligen är.Man har utgått från två möjliga typer av atmosfär, en av samma typ som på jorden och en enklare huvudsakligen bestående av kväve.

p Microsoft has attacked the US government for developing the computer vulnerability that was used in a cyber attack on thousands of computers on Friday.The global ransomware attack, which hit computers in more than 150 countries, was engineered using tools developed by America's spy agency, the National Security Agency.As well as throwing the NHS into chaos, it hit Spanish telecoms giant Telefonica, Nissan, and the German railway system.It was only in March that Microsoft had been able to issue a security update that fixed the flaw after it was stolen from the NSA, meaning that many computers had not installed the patch by the time the NSA's "Eternal Blue" exploit was dumped on the open internet in April."The governments of the world should treat this attack as a wake up call," Microsoft's president and chief legal officer, Brad Smith, wrote in a blog post."This attack provides yet another example of why the stockpiling of vulnerabilities by governments is such a problem."

p Rhonda Huber fell in love with the shape and color of the beautiful palm leaves she saw at her Long Beach home.Being an interior designer, she enlisted the help of her daughter – an illustrator – to draw out her idea, turning that inspiration from nature into a beautifully organic-looking piece of furniture, which she called the Sunday Chair.The idea behind it, explains its CEO Neil Patel, was to make people realize how far 3D printing has come in recent years, and that this is now a technology that can be used to create beautiful, useful – and increasingly affordable objects.Anna Maria Mannarino’s cocktail table was also among the items that materialized in the Manhattan pop-up store next to Times Square last month.Her draped design was printed upside down in horizontal layers, a process that took around 90 hours due to its size and complexity.It had previously never occurred to her that it would be possible to print such large items, as most things she read about or saw were much smaller.

p The lines between console and gaming PC are becoming increasingly blurred, as this update could allow developers to implement keyboard and mouse support on the Xbox One.At GDC 2017, Microsoft announced the Xbox Live Creators Program, an initiative designed to make it easier for developers to release games with Xbox Live functionality across Windows 10 and the Xbox One.At Build 2017, the company offered up some more details regarding what kind of Windows features can be enabled on the Xbox One as a result of the program.Andrew Parsons, Microsoft’s senior program manager for game developers, took to the stage on day one of the Build conference for a session titled “State of play: Modern game development.” He noted that the Xbox Live Creators Program will give developers the ability to enable all Windows features on the Xbox One, including full keyboard support.Parsons noted that “at least two” developers had asked him about the possibility of implementing keyboard support via the program in the past week, which is why he made sure to include this information in his presentation.This functionality could offer huge benefits to certain sectors of the development community, especially studios that specialize in genres that tend to rely on keyboard control schemes, like real-time strategy games.

p With the HTC U 11 set to be announced in a little over a week, it’s only fitting that we take a look back at its predecessor, the HTC 10, which is easily one of the most underrated flagships of 2016.It really is unfortunate that the HTC 10 failed to garner more attention from consumers despite being universally praised by reviewers, which is not something that can be said for a couple of its predecessors.In fact, I’ve seen the LG G5 out in the wild a whole lot more than the HTC 10, and HTC’s marketing (or lack therefore) is definitely accountable for that.It’s a shame that this phone became one of the best smartphones of 2016 that no one was buying, despite going toe to toe with the other flagships that were available at the time.Things have been at a steady decline since then, but with the LG’s 2016 flagship being mostly a miss with consumers, HTC had an opportunity to recapture that magic.In terms of the phone’s durability, there are some minor nicks and scrapes to be seen, but it definitely is in great shape when you consider that I didn’t use a case with this phone.

Director Guy Ritchie, best known for gangster films like Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, takes the style and locomotion of those films and infuses it with the spectacle seen in his big Sherlock Holmes films.When King Arthur is just about Arthur (played as an adult by Pacific Rim’s Charlie Hunnam), Ritchie is in his element.There are dynamic character interactions, lots of energy, fast-cut montages, and precise dialogue.The director begins the grandiose story of King Arthur, with all its magic and legend, in a grounded, gritty reality.Where the film is a little less confident is when it has to live up to Arthurian mythology, albeit a modified version of it.Arthur is sent off on his own, raised in a brothel, and becomes a ground-level gangster.

p Russians are reportedly tired of hacking accusations aimed at Moscow.After the newly-elected French president Emmanuel Macron's political campaigns' 9GB worth of data was leaked on 5 May, just 48 hours before the election, some security experts pointed fingers at Kremlin-linked hacker group Fancy Bear, also known as APT28 or Sofacy.However, following the leaks, Russians reportedly took to social media platforms to express their displeasure, claiming that the country was being made a scapegoat.Vocative reports that Russians are deeming the allegations from the international community as "continued demonization" of Russia.One Russian took to Twitter to mockingly comment on an article in a Russian state-owned newspaper, about the US accusing Russia for the Macron leaks.It's not even funny," the user wrote.

p Intrepid music lovers have found a way (or think they’ve found a way) to swing the Billboard charts in favor of their favorite musician.The Verge reports groups of fans on Tumblr and Twitter are working together, using VPNs and all-night streaming sessions, in an effort to boost Billboard chart numbers.The song they’re trying to get to the top of the charts is One Direction band member Harry Styles’ solo single “Sign of the Times.”The VPNs are used by non-American users to show an American IP address, which is necessary as Billboard only counts US music streams.Fans trade VPN links to the song and stream it across multiple services all night on low volume.They buy the song for themselves and as gifts on iTunes, and feed it through the popular Shazam app (under the assumption that the latter has an effect on radio play).
