» Astronomy Pic of the Day: Boulders on Bennu

An abundance of boulders litters the surface asteroid 101955 Bennu in this dramatic close-up from the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft. Taken on March 28 from a distance of just 3.4 kilometers (2.1 miles) the field of view is about 50 meters across while the light colored boulder at top right is 4.8 meters tall. Likely a loose conglomerate rubble pile asteroid, Bennu itself spans less than 500 meters. That's about the height of the Empire State Building. Mapping the near Earth asteroid since the spacecraft's arrival in December of 2018, the OSIRIS-REx mission plans a TAG (Touch-and-Go) maneuver for July 2020 to sample Bennu's rugged surface, returning the sample to planet Earth in September 2023. Citizen scientists have been invited to help choose the sample collection site.

Where can you find Dauntless Deathmarks, and what do they do? Since the launch Season 5, heaps of glowing pink kunai have appeared in the game’s social area, Ramsgate. The two are, of course, linked to one another. Alongside the start of the Hidden Blades season, Phoenix Labs has introduced a battle pass that’s themed with ninja-cosmetics.

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. Protolife occupies a rather special place in my repository of tower defence games for two reasons. First, the central concept of controlling a little construction bot that poops out blue blocks in specific patterns to create […]

Arma 3 makes first contact in next expansion

May 24, 2019 - 8:19 PM - by newsbot
newsbot's Avatar
The straight-faced military simulation of Arma 3 will get a little weirder with its next expansion, named Contact, where serious soldiermen will encounter and investigate aliens. Expect strange lights in the sky, unknown aircraft, strange energy signatures, glowing orbs, the lot. It doesn’t look like some kooky Stalin vs. Martians nonsense, mind, treating first contact […]
