  1. “Tiny” T-Rex Discovered In the Arctic

  2. So Apparently You Can Get Coffee To Run Out Of Your Household Taps [VIDEO]

    Because who wouldn't want to bathe in hot coffee on demand?

    Okay, so it's probably easier to use your one-cup coffee maker - but wouldn't it be way cooler if you could run hot coffee out of your taps? These two fellows from the Norwegian show Ikke gjør dette hjemme ("Do Not Do This At Home") set their house up to do just that, and it seems pretty instantly delicious.

  3. Giant Squid Footage is Actually of a Giant Squid, And It’s Apparently Silver

    Last month we reported that a film crew from Discovery Channel had captured footage of a giant squid at home in the inky blackness of the ocean's depths -- the place where all the most horrid nightmares are born -- for an episode of the cable network's Curiosity series. Since we're inclined to take a "pics or it didn't happen" view of the world over here, it's safe to say that we were all dubious of the claim, especially when past experience has shown that such overhyped discoveries are often run-of-the-mill colossal squid that don't even merit a second glance. Today, though, we're delighted to report that our cynicism was, for once, unfounded. The team of giant squid enthusiasts behind last month's bold claim has released this photo of the legendary aquatic beast that caused superstitious vikings and pirates to soil themselves at the mere mention of it -- we assume.

  4. Release the Kraken Giant Squid! New Footage Captures Elusive Beast for First Time

    Seen here in an artistic interpretation, the giant squid is thought to be the inspiration for many sea monster stories throughout history like the Kraken, Scylla, Cthulhu, and probably Sharktopus, but it refuses to be taken alive. It won't even let its picture be taken alive, until now that is. A film crew for Discovery has captured the first footage of a live giant squid in its natural habitat, probably doing squid stuff.

  5. NASA to Hold Press Conference on Mercury Today at 2PM, Disappointing Everyone [Updated]

    Since NASA's tease last week about "historic" new findings on Mars, the world's been anxiously awaiting details about what the Curiosity's been up to on the red planet. That's why the news that NASA will be holding a 2PM press conference today has everyone in a tizzy. Unfortunately, it wasn't meant to be as today's press conference is not about Mars, but will reveal new findings from the MESSENGER spacecraft orbiting Mercury. Don't take it personally, Mercury. You're interesting too; we just really want to hear what they found on Mars.

  6. Space Shuttle Discovery Gets Piggy-Back Ride To Its New Museum Home

    It Came From Outer Space

It landed for the last time on March 9, 2011 on what marked the 133rd NASA shuttle mission.

  7. Russian Team Breaches Underground Lake Vostok, Sealed for 15 Million Years Beneath Two Miles of Ice

    After twenty years and 2.2 miles of drilling, a Russian scientific team has reported that they have breached the ice cap above Lake Vostok some 3,768 meters beneath Antarctica. Though many had theorized the existence of lakes beneath the antarctic ice since the 19th century, conclusive proof of one did not exist until 1993 when satellite data confirmed that an ancient fresh water lake did indeed exist. Untouched for nearly 15 million years, breaching Lake Vostok could have wide ranging effects on our understanding of life itself.

    Don't Try This At Home

    If you like Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, you're going to be very happy about this: the Mythbusters hosts have announced that they'll be producing a new show for Discovery called Unchained Reaction. The duo will serve as judges on the new show, which will pit two teams against each other while they build the most awesome Rube Goldberg device. And it looks like ... yes. Yes, I read that right: there might be guillotines.

  10. Space Shuttle Discovery Stripped Down, Looks Sad

    When it was announced that the retired Space Shuttles would be put on display at museums across America, it was a sweet follow-up to the sad news that the whole program would be retired. But The Universe Today's set of pictures showing Space Shuttle Discovery stripped down, looking sad and forlorn as it was towed to the Vertical Assembly Building is a painful price. In preparation to becoming museum pieces, the Shuttles will have their engines removed -- the three main engines in the back, and the maneuvering thrusters in the nose. The shuttles will also be thoroughly cleaned to get rid of any of the toxic chemicals. The result is a rather sad looking ship, far from the powerful vehicle that flew to space and back so many times. With its windows covered up like that, I can't help but feel like Discovery has had its eyes poked out. Hopefully the Shuttles will look a bit less pitiful when the decommissioning process is complete. Read on below for more images of Discovery, which may or may not tug at your heartstrings.
