Watch The First Moments of NASA's Crew Dragon Spacecraft Launch

Don't have time to watch or fast-forward through 6 hours of filler coverage? We've grabbed the perfect shots from SpaceX and NASA's joint spacecraft launch of the Crew Dragon. This is the first commercial spacecraft in history to bring astronauts into space, and was designed by the tech giant Elon Musk with his SpaceX commercial space program. With the launch a complete success, and the window narrowing after inclement weather, the successful launch was a massive achievement for commercial space travel, and the potential is massive for scaling this to even greater heights. Next stop, Mars.

Launch highlights of the SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft as it carries two astronauts into space to the International Space Station as the first commercial spacecraft to bring astronauts into space. The cover gif is an immediate close up and then zoom out of SpaceX's Crew Dragon spacecraft launching and the thrust trail it leaves as it rockets into the atmosphere and into space.

Thirteen Dank Memes Featuring The World's Smallest Computer Next To A Grain Of Rice

Back in 2018, researchers at the University of Michigan created the world's smallest computer, measuring just 1x1 mm. Unfortunately, the tiny device loses all of its programming and data as soon as it's turned off, so it's up in the air as to whether it actually has the "minimum functionality required" to count as a legitimate microcomputer. But fortunately for us, it's become part of this new dank meme, which features a picture of the tiny computer next to a grain of rice. Scroll down to see some of our favorite examples!

The Star Betelgeuse is Acting Strange, And Might Even Explode

Orion and his belt are one of the most recognizable constellations in the night sky. Seen around the world every day, it would be pretty obvious if something weird was going on, and that is exactly what casual observers and scientists alike have pounced on. Betelgeuse, one of the 10 brightest stars in the sky, has begun to dim, a common sign that a star is about to go supernova. So significant is the brightness of Betelgeuse that the entire view of the Orion constellation has shifted in its visibility. So what is happening in that corner of our night sky? Is this massive star going to be visible from space? History offers some insight.

What Would it Look Like if the Planets of the Solar System Were as Close as the Moon

One internet artist gave us a real perspective at what the planets would look like if they were as close as the moon. Can you imagine taking a selfie with Saturn in the background? Or taking a SpaceX weekend ride to Pluto? Whatever the case these visuals are simply incredible.

A Hole Has Appeared In the Center of Antarctica And Scientists Are Rushing to Understand Why

Antarctica is one of the world's most mysterious continents. Covered in 98% ice, and the last in the world to be discovered and explored, this place is the most uninhabitable on earth, and is covered in ice that in places is almost 2km thick. First discovered in 1820 by Russian explorer Fabian Gottlieb von Bellingshausen and Mikhail Lazarev, it would take until 1895 that the ice continent would be explored properly. The continent is also wrought with controversy, with multiple countries staking claims to different parts of it, with some of them overlapping. 

But as the world has started to shift and the environment with it, scientists have started to witness hitherto unseen changes that had only been recorded historically in our findings in the ice. But a hole that was discovered in the center of the continent has got scientists abuzz over the developments. So what happened here? Is this natural or another example of man's effect on the global environment.
