• SpaceX Brings Astronauts Home Safely in a Historic First

    During the descent, the capsule’s heat shield experienced temperatures above 3,500 degrees Fahrenheit as it used the atmosphere as a brake to reduce its speed from 17,000 to just 350 miles per hour. Once the capsule was about 3 miles above the surface—half the cruising altitude of a passenger jet—it deployed its small drogue parachutes as additional brakes. When it was only a mile above the waves, the capsule deployed its main chutes and drifted lazily to the surface.

    So how has she been coping in isolation at the New Line Cinema offices?

    Honestly, Annabelle is all of us in quarantine, if we had the whole Warner Bros. studio lot at our disposal that is.

    But in the grand scheme of things, her time under quarantine has been so-so, much like the rest of us really.

    So what has she been up to then?

  • Zelda recipe appears in serious novel by serious author after rushed Google search

    If you were writing a book and needed to find out how red clothes dye is traditionally made, you’d probably start with a simple Google search. At least, that’s what John Boyne, the author behind The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas says he “must have” done when it emerged that several fantasy ingredients from The Legend of Zelda have appeared in his most recent book, A Traveler at the Gates of Wisdom.

    The problem, as journalist Dana Schwartz notes, is that rather than listing a real-world recipe, the current top search result for “ingredients red dye clothes” links to a guide from Polygon on how to dye clothes in the video game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
