5 corrupt reasons why people deny the climate crisis

The fossil fuel industry, political lobbyists, media moguls, and individuals have spent the past 30 years sowing doubt about the reality of climate change – where none exists.

Their hold on the public seems to be waning. Two recent polls suggested over 75 percent of Americans think humans are causing climate change. School [..]

Chinese scientists created ‘monkey pigs’ by adding primate cells to pig embryos

As NewScientist reports, a team of researchers from the State Key Laboratory of Stem Cell and Reproductive Biology in Beijing set about creating the first pig-monkey chimeras.

Tesla’s cheapest Cybertruck may not arrive until 2023

When Tesla started manufacturing the Model 3, it made a point to prioritize production of pricier configurations. As a result, folks interested in purchasing the entry-level Model 3 for $35,000 were forced to wait for quite some time. The rationale behind Tesla's decision in this regard was quite simple: to generate as much cash as possible as quickly as possible. At the time, Elon Musk said that if Tesla started shipping the low-cost Model 3 right away, it "would cause Tesla to lose money and die." While T[..]

Oyama CX E8D II Review: This folding e-bike gets almost everything right

After testing a few e-bikes this year, it’s quickly become apparent that they are the fastest way to get around a crowded city like New York, especially if you want the optional workout. But there are a few important caveats. For one, e-bikes are typically big and heavy; many city dwellers already forgo regular bikes because they take up too much space in a small apartment or they don’t want to walk them up a flight of stairs. For another, you’ll be even more paranoid about locking them up. You’ll need at l[..]

Here are the places on asteroid Bennu where NASA might grab its sample
