Scientists are trying to make the International Space Station’s bathroom a little less gross

BGR - 4 hours 41 min ago

The International Space Station is like no other place on Earth, and not just because it's not actually on Earth at all. The orbiting laboratory is inhabited by crews of scientists that live there for months before being changed out for fresh faces, and this poses a huge challenge when it comes to cleanliness.

It's not that astronauts are any messier than the rest of us, but they're definitely still human, and being human means carrying a whole host of microorganisms with you on a daily basis. Recent research has revealed that the bacteria spread by humans to the ISS is actually mutating, posing a potential risk for future spacegoers, but researchers are now testing a new antimicrobial coating that could help clean things up a bit.

Purdue University bans Wi-Fi access to streaming sites like Netflix following teacher complaints

BGR - 5 hours 19 min ago

Back in the day, before the advent of the modern-day smartphone, the only way to waste time in class was to trade notes with friends, doodle some crude drawings on your notebook, or maybe play a few rudimentary video games on your graphing calculator. Flash forward to 2019 and the learning environment is markedly different. These days, college students are increasingly using their school's Wi-Fi network to access streaming content from the likes of sites like Netflix and Hulu. In turn, bandwidth can sometimes take a discernible hit. Though universities are well equipped to handle an insane amount of traffic, things change quite a bit when you're talking about thousands of students streaming HD content at the same time.

In light of that, one high-profile university recently embarked on a somewhat controversial measures to preserve their precious bandwidth. Highlighting the issue, the Chicago Tribune reports that Purdue University recently blocked students from using streaming services at academic buildings on campus. According to the report, Purdue opted for this course of action after hearing complaints from teachers regarding academic applications not running smoothly during class.

NASA’s InSight lander still has a big problem, and nobody is quite sure how to fix it

BGR - 6 hours 45 min ago

One of NASA's most exciting ongoing missions is that of the InSight lander that currently calls Mars home. The robotic lander has the potential to teach scientists a great deal about the Red Planet and its history, but first NASA has to figure out what to do with one of its important, but underperforming, instruments.

The tool, which is described as a "self-hammering mole" is designed to dig several meters into the planet in order to take temperature readings and paint a more complete picture of what is going on deep inside. Unfortunately the instrument's first attempt fell well short of expectations, and its engineers aren't sure why.

The Google Stadia game controller feels surprisingly great

The verge - 7 hours 20 min ago

Google today took the wraps off its Stadia cloud gaming platform, showing off a bold but largely untested vision of the future of gaming that involves distributing and playing software in real-time over the internet. We still don’t know a lot about how Stadia will work, how much it might cost, whether it will operate as a Netflix-style subscription service for consumers or use a different business model, or when exactly it will come out later this year. But we did get our hands on the custom controller Google built, the only physical piece of the Stadia package.

Surprisingly, the Stadia controller feels and looks great. Granted, we didn’t get to try it on a live Stadia demo, but we did get to go hands-on with the same white and orange...

This is why Netflix canceled your favorite show

BGR - 7 hours 40 min ago

Netflix sparked a bit of an outcry last week when the streaming giant cancelled One Day at a Time, a Netflix original family comedy inspired by the old Norman Lear series of the same name.

The cancellation led Netflix to issue a rare explanation on social media, which this Facebook post from the company noting: "The choice did not come easily -- we spent several weeks trying to find a way to make another season work but in the end simply not enough people watched to justify another season." Which was no doubt still unsatisfactory to the show's fans, and made many of them wonder if the show could be resurrected somewhere else.
