Where and When to Watch the Leonid Meteor Shower This Weekend

One of the world's greatest meteor showers, the Leonids, will return this weekend. On Saturday and Sunday, weather permitting, you can watch the sky fill with up to 20 meteors per hour.Known for "producing great meteor storms in the years of 1833, 1866, 1966, and 2001," according to the American Meteor Society, the Leonids stem from an icy parent comet known as Tempel-Tuttle. Discovered independently by American Horace Tuttle and German Ernst Wilhelm Tempel in the 1860s, Temple-Tuttle comes by Earth every 33 years or so. The Leonids happen when Earth passes through the field of debris left behind by...

Rocket Lab Debuts Low-Cost Rocket in First Commercial Launch

Rocket Lab, a start-up aerospace company with a focus on reducing the prices on getting to low-Earth orbit (LEO), has successfully launched its first commercial payload. If SpaceX and Blue Origin have goals of expanding the human race into a space-faring species, companies like Rocket Lab have much more utilitarian aims: lowering the price of LEO entry. The company's Electron rocket boosters can carry a maximum payload of a little under 500 pounds and it uses its own 3D-printed liquid-propellent engines called Curies. Based in California and New Zealand, the company launched its first commercial payload off the coast of...

Two More Mysterious Rogue Planets Found

Rogue planets wander through space without orbiting a star, and now scientists have found two more of these free-floating worlds.For centuries, the very existence of rogue planets was hypothetical. Because they're not close to a star that lights them up, they're tremendously difficult to spot. Then a technique known as gravitational microlensing came around.Using gravitational microlensing, scientists find planets by noting when a rogue planet interrupts a star's light from our point of view. The planet suddenly acts as a lens for the star's light, curving it as it would be seen from Earth. The bigger the planet, the bigger...

How to Drag Race a 797-Horsepower Hellcat Redeye

Most cars are easy to run at the drag strip. Line up, wait for the green light, and go. In today's fancier cars, the machine can do it for you: All-wheel-drive monsters like the Porsche 911 Turbo and Nissan GT-R can dial up launch control and let a computer-orchestrated clutch drop send you on your way.Once you’ve got more power than the tires can handle, though, that's when the tricks and artistry come into play. And the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody has a lot more power than the tires can handle. Let's put it this way: When...

The Newest $25 Raspberry Pi Is the End of an Era

The Raspberry Pi, the original teeny-tiny $35 computer, has a new flavor. Announced today, the Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ has an unwieldy name and a specific use-case. A smaller, more budget-friendly version of the Pi 3 Model B+, its smaller size, lower $25 price point, and 512 MB of RAM make it fit for DIY home automation, but perhaps, most notably, it's likely to be the last of its kind and the end of the Raspberry Pi as we've come to know it. Since the announcement of the first Raspberry Pi in 2012, the tiny computer has evolved in...

8 Cool Things About the Can-Am Ryker

Can-Am is a three-wheel pioneer, building trikes way before it was cool. In the decade since that first Spyder, three-wheelers have become a legitimate, even popular alternative to motorcycles. Related Story The 10 Best Buys in Motorcycles for 2019 The company still makes the original Spyder, but it’s expensive. The base model starts at $16,000, and goes to over $25,000 for a loaded Touring model. The new Ryker is Can-Am's entry-level trike, starting at $8,499 and built to give the same fun and stability on twisty roads as its older sibling. Here's what to know about it.You Can Get Two...

Google's Project Fi Now Comes with a VPN

Your internet activity is visible to wireless providers and mobile carriers, but Google is at least trying to mitigate the feeling of constant surveillance for subscribers of its wireless network, Project Fi. The search giant announced today an "enhanced network" of security meant to blanket Project Fi with an ever-present virtual private network (VPN), encrypting all traffic entering the system through Wi-Fi or cellular. Project Fi is the company's own cellular service, made possible through piggyback partnerships: It grants customers access to cellular networks from carriers like Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile in addition to two million free Wi-Fi networks dispersed...

The Creepiest, Spying-est Gifts to Not Buy This Year

The all-out assault on your privacy is coming from virtually every angle at once. As we slide into a face-scanning dystopia where law enforcement is licensing identification technology from giants like Amazon, your ISP is freer than ever to peruse your browsing history to hock it to advertisers. Which is, of course, to say nothing of Facebook. Just, Facebook. Keeping your private data private is hard enough in the face off all that, so the last thing you need to do is bring a creepy little eavesdropper into your home of your own accord, or to drop one on a...

This One Tool Will Save You from Chapped Lips This Winter

Here's an unpopular opinion: Chapstick sucks. I’ve heard all the arguments of why this opinion makes me stupid, but I've just never liked the stuff. And I have seen plenty of people forget about it and put a stick in the dryer, say goodbye to those chinos. So how do my lips survive the winter? Strangely enough, a straw. Recently, I started using a Klean Kanteen reusable straw, and while I was surprised I liked it so much—I am no "straw guy"—they're the perfect tool for keeping lips hydrated (and for saving the environment).Dry winter air, both inside and outside...

Stanley Made a Lightweight Plastic Utility Knife. So Is It Any Good?

Many hand tools reached a point of perfection early in their development. Afterward, most of the activity around them amounts to tinkering. And being the old-school guy that I am, I wasn't sure what to make of it when Stanley introduced a line of plastic utility knives. But the new material allows for a knife that weighs nearly nothing and includes better safety features, so I was eager to give it a shot.Stanley’s new Fat Max plastic utility knives are not pitched specifically as box openers, but that’s their most obvious use. The model shown above has a blade with...

Driving season on the Nurburgring is coming to a close for 2018, so you know what that means, right? Yep, another crash compilation video from the past year of driving. Like in videos past, it's full of collisions, oil spills, and other incidents that'll make you second-guess why'd you ever want to drive on the 'Ring in the first place. This video, put together by YouTuber Auto Addition, features wrecks from open tourist drive sessions (where anyone can drop a few Euros and do a lap), as well as full-blown VLN racing events with real, actual race drivers. As you'll...
