Add FedEx and Honeywell to the growing list of big American companies that are sharing some of the windfall from a lower tax rate with workers. FedEx announced Friday that it will increase employee compensation by over $200 million following the recently enacted U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. About two-thirds will go to hourly team members, by "advancing" 2018 annual pay increases by six months to April 1st...

US spaceflight startup Rocket Lab put three commercial satellites into orbit during its rocket launch this past weekend — but it turns out there was another satellite that hitched a ride on the vehicle too. The company’s Electron rocket also put into orbit a previously undisclosed satellite made by Rocket Lab’s CEO Peter Beck, called the Humanity Star. And the probe will supposedly become the “brightest...

Google today announced a significant change in how it ranks websites for mobile searches: it will now take page speed into consideration as one of its signals, the company says. The change, which Google is referring to as the “Speed Update,” will go into effect in July 2018, and will downrank very slow websites under certain conditions.

A grin stretched across Robert Ward’s face Thursday afternoon as he talked about the three meteorites he found in less than four hours. “It’s a really spectacular specimen,” the researcher said, showing off the largest of rocks he found on a frozen Hamburg Township lake. “Two days ago, this was hundreds of thousands of miles past the moon, and now I’m standing here holding it in my hand. It’s been a...

Auto shows traditionally are a time for automakers to make grand promises and gung-ho predictions. Over the years, some of the cars touted at events such as the annual North American International Auto Show in Detroit have found their way into our garages, other times they have vanished almost as quickly as the venue spotlights dimmed. This year's incarnation of the big auto show starts Sunday.

Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs) are one of the biggest astronomical mysteries of the last decade. First observed in 2007, astronomers have detected over two dozen instances of the powerful but fleeting signals from space. Researchers don’t know exactly what they are, but there have been plenty of proposals—including alien messages (of course), signals from collapsing black holes or neutron stars, and energy from...

On April 12, 1981, the two-man crew of STS-1 felt like they had something to prove. Packed with a steak and egg breakfast, the two men sat inside the Space Shuttle Columbia’s cockpit, staring at the sky. This was a milestone flight for them, personally, and the tension to get underway was palpable. The rookie, Robert Crippen, had never been to space before. For the veteran commander, John Young, this was...

Malware discovered by Symantec researchers sneakily spoofs Uber’s Android app and harvests users’ passwords, allowing attackers to take over the affected users’ accounts. The malware isn’t widespread, though, and most Uber users are not effected.

In a sign that astronaut launches from Florida are growing nearer, SpaceX recently leased an Air Force facility where it will prepare Dragon capsules to fly crews to the International Space Station. The 45th Space Wing said work on the capsule called Crew Dragon or Dragon 2 would take place in Area 59, a former satellite processing facility on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

Humans have blasted some impressive objects into outer space over the decades in the name of research and exploration. Yet some things which have made it into orbit have been downright bizarre. In a year when space gained its first brewery – that we know of – RT takes a look at some of the weirdest things that have left our planet and made the celestial voyage.

If you love space and astronomy, 2018 will be an exciting year. NASA has announced windows of time for sending spacecraft to Mars and the sun. Japanese and American probes already in space are set to enter orbit around two near Earth asteroids. And a variety of eclipses and meteor showers offer ample opportunities for skygazing.

UC Berkeley researchers have developed a robotic learning technology that enables robots to imagine the future of their actions so they can figure out how to manipulate objects they have never encountered before. In the future, this technology could help self-driving cars anticipate future events on the road and produce more intelligent robotic assistants in homes, but the initial prototype focuses on...

With another wave of arctic air to hit Chicago this weekend, city officials on Thursday urged people to call 311 if anyone needs help, including transportation to warming centers and shelters. Since November, three people in Chicago have died from hypothermia due to exposure to the cold, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. One of those deaths occurred during the latest cold snap.
