This low budget version of the classic is as good (or better?) than the original, purely because of the creativity that went into recreating The Matrix on a low, low budget. And it will have you crying with laughter. This will make your week.

The Next Mars Mission Is Going To Include a Space Helicopter

That is not a typo. NASA has been hard at work developing the technology for the next mission to Mars. Part of that are the modules that will be part of the rover. An autonomous helicopter would be able to take pictures never seen before, and reach areas that the rover on the ground, would take far longer to reach, and might not even be accessible.

Here's Something Not See Everyday - A Caribou Scratching an Itch on his Foot with his Antlers

We need various back-scratchers to reach those difficult spots. But not this guy. This caribou has massive antlers that serve the same purpose. Talk about cost-cutting measures.

The Hubble Telescope Gave Us an Incredible Look at Saturn's Rings and Moons

Amazing what a mere collection of water and ice and a few rocks can turn into. Saturn's rings are one of the most incredible sights in the night sky, and in space overall. Though their make up is unremarkable, since the 1970s when the Pioneer and Voyager spacecraft visited the system and gave us our first close-up look. 

What's more amazing is that unlike many other celestial bodies in our universe, that we need to physically reach in order to get a clear picture of, Saturn is close enough that we can get images like those below.

A Black Blacker Than Black: Vantablack has Been Outdone By MIT Scientists... By Accident

You might think you know black... But you don't know Black. Vantablack took the world by storm when it was shown to be the most light absorbent material ever created. It absorbs 99.96% of light, and was recently used by BMW to advertise a Vantablack covered SUV using nanotechnology to adhere the substance to the car. 

But MIT was not to be outdone, and created the darkest substance ever found, though their feat was unintentional. Now they have put their discovery on display, in one of the most incredible exhibits possible.
