    'Mr. Robot' Season 1 finale recap: Who needs money, anyway?
    Mr-robotFeed-twFeed-fbAll season, Mr. Robot has differentiated itself from most other shows on TV. From its unique point of view — it's literally told from inside the head of its main character — to its commentary on current events (cyber terrorism, the fall of counterfeit heroes, etc.), USA’s groundbreaking summer drama has been nothing short of thrilling. Creator Sam Esmail’s feature-script-turned-TV-show traffics in boldness, in terms of both how it’s shot and its content — which makes Mr. Robot refreshingly original entertainment. See also: USA's 'Mr. Robot' may have cracked the code to compelling tech TV Wednesday night’s finale — the latest twist in a season full of bumps and turns — was yet another reminder of that. We’ve spent the past 10 episodes ingrained in the mind of our jittery, morphine-addicted and somewhat maniacal protagonist Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek), watching step-by-step as he and his team of keyboard-pounding cyber-vigilantes — poignantly dubbed “FSociety” — put forth a comprehensive plan to rid the world of debt.

    KivaliniFeed-twFeed-fbANCHORAGE, Alaska — Residents of a Native village threatened by erosion were thankful Wednesday for President Barack Obama's attention to their plight, saying they hope his visit to Alaska will help them secure funding to build a critical evacuation road to drier ground.

    Cosmic hitchhiker: NASA developing space probe to hop among comets
    Hitchhiker20150901Feed-twFeed-fbSome day in the future a spacecraft might be able to hitchhike its way across the small bodies of the solar system. A new mission concept being developed by scientists working with NASA would use a tether and harpoon to reel a robotic spacecraft in for a landing on a comet or asteroid before moving on to other bodies in its cosmic neighborhood. See also: Giant sinkholes may dot a comet heading toward the sun This Comet Hitchhiker concept could allow a craft to get into orbit and land on small bodies, studying them from close range. By collecting data on multiple objects, scientists could expand their understanding of how bodies in the solar system formed and possibly even help researchers learn more about how the seeds for life may have gotten to Earth.
