Students prepare to launch balloons to get bird’s-eye view of solar eclipse

For the first time advances in technology will make it possible for world-wide solar eclipse enthusiasts to watch live-streamed video of the celestial phenomenon – and they are doing it with balloons.

55 ballooning teams participating in NASA's Space Grant Ballooning Project have spent more than a year preparing for the Aug. 21 coast-to-coast solar eclipse.

“For the past year-and-a half I have been thinking of nothing but this eclipse, every day, every night. Constantly thinking of little ways to improve or to change the system for the better,” College of Charleston team lead Sam Fink told Fox News. “I can’t put into words how excited I am.”

Here’s what NASA’s new Planetary Protection Officer will actually do

planetary protection officer

You've probably already heard about NASA's newest job opening. It carries a pretty impressive title, and being the official "Planetary Protection Officer" for US space program must be one heck of a responsibility, right? But what in the world does such a person actually do, and why is it so important that NASA is willing to throw as much as $187,000 at the person who wins the gig? Well, as with most things NASA does, it's complicated...

73% of Android users won’t switch to the iPhone because of the headphone jack

iPhone 8 headphone jack survey

It seems that Apple's "courageous" move to eliminate the headphone jack from the iPhone 7 last year may have cost it a fair number of sales. According to a Yahoo Finance survey of over 7,700 people, 73% of Android users are less likely to switch to iPhone solely because it lacks a headphone jack. In other words, with a 3.5mm headphone jack, they might have considered switching from Android to Apple.

Forget 5G: Verizon just tested an absurdly fast 4G connection that works right now

Verizon best wireless network, fastest 4G in new test

In a real-world test in Boca Raton, Florida, Verizon and technical partners have managed to pull gigabit speeds down to a smartphone. That's impressive all by its lonesome, but the real detail here is how those speeds were pulled off. Verizon, Ericsson, and Qualcomm combined hardware and technology that's already in use to achieve the crazy speeds -- which means it's a solution you could see coming to a cell tower near you in the very forseeable future.

The test was the first time that a carrier has tried aggregating licensed cell spectrum -- the airwaves your sweet LTE already comes over -- with unlicensed spectrum that anyone can already use (in this case, the same spectrum that's used for your home Wi-Fi network).

Leaked Galaxy Note 8 banner shows off the phone’s final design

Galaxy Note 8 leak

As quickly as the Galaxy Note 8 leaks have been dropping in recent days, we might not have anything left to talk about by the time Samsung actually reveals the phone at an event in New York later this month.

On Thursday, just a day after sharing the Note 8's full specs sheet, VentureBeat's Evan Blass tweeted out a banner featuring the phablet, the new S-Pen and the "Do bigger things" tagline. It's nothing we haven't seen before, but if you wanted another look at the phone's design, now you have it.
