Atlas V rocket launches from Cape Canaveral with NASA communications satellite

Atlas V rocket launches from Cape Canaveral with NASA communications satellite

After a couple of delays, a  United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket blasted off Friday morning from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.   The rocket is delivering into space the TDRS-M communications and data relay satellite for NASA. (tweet)   The satellite, which was built by Boeing, will allow scientists, engineers and control room staff to access data for missions such as the Hubble Space Telescope and the International Space Station, according to WFTV.   The rocket was supposed to launch at 8:03 a.m. but because of what NASA describes as a “thermal issue,” the launch was delayed until 8:29 a.m. ET. 

If you thought Mufasa and Scar were brothers in “The Lion King,” apparently you are wrong

If you thought Mufasa and Scar were brothers in “The Lion King,” apparently you are wrong

First of all: don’t blame me if you start to question everything about your childhood now. The Disney classic “The Lion King” has been one of the most popular animated films of all time. Seriously, who didn’t cry their eyes out during that scene where Mufasa falls to his death because Scar wanted to be a real jerk and not help him up the cliff? It’s what any good brother would do. But there may be a reason for Scar’s betrayal. Mufasa and Scar aren’t really brothers. Director Rob Minkoff and producer Don Hahn explain to Hello Giggles: “While making the movie,  we talked about the fact that it was very likely [Scar and Mufasa] would not have both the same parents. The way lions operate in the wild…when the male lion gets old, another rogue lion comes and kills the head of the pride. What that does is it causes the female lions to go into heat [to reproduce], and then the new younger lion kills the king and then he kills all the babies. Now he’s the new lion that’s running the pride.” Wait a second: didn’t Mufasa yell “Brother, help me!” during that heart-wrenching scene? “There was always this thing about well, how do you have these two [male] lions? Occasionally there are prides that do have two male lions, in an interesting dynamic because they’re not equals [since they don’t have the same parents]. One lion will always kind of be off in the shadows. We were trying to use those animal truths to underpin the story so we sort of figured Scar and Mufasa couldn’t really be from the same gene pool. In fact, that’s what [Scar] says. There’s a line, he goes, “I’m from the shallow end of the gene pool.” When he’s talking to Mufasa, when Mufasa gets mad at him for not coming up to the coronation of Simba.” MIND. BLOWN. (VIDEO)

Nine-year-old boy crawls like a ninja to unplug home security camera

Nine-year-old boy crawls like a ninja to unplug home security camera

A nine-year-old boy used his ninja-like skills to disconnect a security camera that was alerting his parents to his late-night TV habits. All summer long, Jeremy Gabrysch and his wife have been struggling to figure out a way to keep their children from sneaking out of their beds at night to watch TV in the living room. They installed a security camera and it worked, until their son Nate decided to take matters into his own hands. In the clip captured by the camera, Nate can be seen crawling toward the TV, sliding himself slowly across the hardwood floor until his tiny feet disappear from the screen. Nate did successfully manage to disconnect the gadget, but unfortunately an alert was sent to his parents when the camera was unplugged.  (App users can see video here)

Trump issues fresh warning to North Korea, says U.S. military is “locked and loaded”

President Donald Trump on Friday again warned North Korea not to attack American interests or allies, as Mr. Trump tweeted out photos of U.S. military forces on the Pacific island of Guam, aiming his remarks directly at the leader of the Pyongyang regime, Kim Jong Un, again saying that any military action by North Korea will meet with a swift and serious U.S. response.

“If he does anything with respect to Guam or any place else that is an American territory or an American ally, he will truly regret it, and regret it fast,” the President said in a Friday afternoon [More]
