Despite the weird uncanny valley performances from some of its digital characters, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story does a great job of time-traveling back to a time before the first film in the series.  So it's only fair that we get to see what the VHS videotape version of the home video might look like if Rogue One had actually been released back in the '70s.  From the amazingly accurate '70s-style voiceover to the grainy footage, the fake St......

We're a sucker for drama. And you'll see plenty of it, in Dash Cam Owners Australia's "March 2017 On The Road" compilation, which is part of an ongoing collection of the Facebook page's most dangerous — but also highly entertaining — cases of woeful driving or near-misses with risk-taking pedestrians.

Finding your chill in VR is easy when you can meditate on Mars

Scientists could end up flying blind about Arctic sea ice at the worst possible time

All is not well in the Arctic, where sea ice is in a long-term precipitous decline due to human-caused global warming.

That means that, at the end of February, the Arctic was missing an ice chunk the size of Texas, California and West Virginia combined, thanks to an unusually warm win......
