McCabe: ‘I think it’s possible’ Trump is a Russian asset

(CNN)Former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe said Tuesday it is possible President Donald Trump is a Russian asset. McCabe is promoting his new book, “The Threat,” which paints a stark portrait of his time at the bureau under Trump, describing in vivid detail his version of interactions with top officials at the White House and Justice Department. The book was released Tuesday and became an instant best-seller. White House counselor Kellyanne Conway responded to McCabe’s comments on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time,” saying McCabe’s comment is “hardly dignifying with a response.” “He’s a liar and a leaker,” Conway said. The former acting FBI director went on the record in that “60 Minutes” interview confirming some previous reports about Deputy Attorney General …

See The Moment A Satellite Successfully Harpoons Space Debris

In one of the world’s first attempts to clean up space, a new satellite designed under the RemoveDEBRIS program is using its harpoon-capture system to tackle the growing problem of space garbage. The slow-motion video shows the harpoon mechanism stab through a piece of space garbage and successfully retract it into its system. Designed by Airbus Stevenage, the harpoon is constructed of a 1.5-meter (95-foot) boom deployed from the RemoveDEBRIS spacecraft with a satellite panel on the end. The harpoon can speed at a target at 20 meters (66 feet) per second in order to penetrate and capture debris. “This is RemoveDEBRIS’ most demanding experiment and the fact that it was a success is [a] testament to all involved. The RemoveDEBRIS …

This Optical Illusion Can Glitch Your Brain For Several Milliseconds

If you take a look at this optical illusion, you might feel your brain straining for a flicker of a moment. It turns out, that’s not far off from what’s actually going on. New research, published in the Journal of Neuroscience, has looked at the neural mechanisms underlying certain optical illusions, especially ones that evoke an illusory sense of movement. A good example of this is the Pinna-Brelstaff illusion, where concentric rings of shapes centered around a dot trick your mind into perceiving an unnerving jolty movement, despite the image being perfectly still. They found that the brain experiences a 15-millisecond delay to process what’s going on in these types of movement-mimicking illusions. For those short few moments, the brain is effectively frozen. To find …

Supermoon, 2019’s biggest and brightest, will light up the sky

(CNN)February’s full moon will brighten the skies on Tuesday as the biggest and brightest supermoon of the year.

Similar markings have been observed in historic churches and homes near entrances to “turn away” evil spirits …

Marvel TV’s superhero universe on Netflix officially comes to an end. Could Disney+ be its new home?

Wildlife Photographer Captures Beautiful Images Of Rare And Elusive Black Panther In Kenya

An incredibly rare and elusive black panther has been captured on film in Kenya. British wildlife photographer Will Burrard-Lucas used specially designed camera traps to take some astonishing photographs of the beguiling cat sneaking about the bush under cover of darkness.
