• Sneakers have a secret that celebrates legendary fighting game tournament EVO Moment 37

    EVO is the Superbowl of fighting games. For those that aren't initiated, EVO—or Evolution Championship Series—is the annual event where the top fighting games, developers, and players come to show off to their most die-hard supporters. For almost 30 years, EVO has grown into a massive juggernaut in the Esports world that essentially acts as a proving ground for the best competitive players in the world.

    Although EVO is gigantic nowadays, it wasn't always as commercial in its early years. The moment that pushed EVO into the awareness of the mainstream is, without question, the famous "Daigo parry" or EVO Moment # 37. The video is probably the most famous Esport clip, irrespective of genre, around.

    Since EVO is this weekend and the first in-person event since 2019, the hype is at an all-time high. So much so that a pair of exclusive Nike Air Force Ones have made the rounds on the internet. Why are these Nike's so interesting? Oh, they only contain the input required to perform Moment # 37 inside the shoe's tongue.

    A seemingly inconsequential, outlet-relegated sneaker gained new relevance this week, the full story of its video game-inspired design surfacing two years after it was produced. The shoe, a white pair of the Nike Air Force 1 dressed in blue accents, nods to Evo Moment #37, the extraordinary conclusion to a Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike game from 2004 that still stands as the most iconic moment in competitive fighting game history.

  • Former Nickelodeon child star Jennette McCurdy alleges the network offered her $300,000 to silence her claims of abuse

    Former Nickelodeon child star Jennette McCurdy has been outspoken about the various forms of psychological trauma she experienced during her time as a teen sensation. For years, McCurdy has detailed harrowing stories of her mother being the catalyst for her eating disorder and a laundry list of mental hurdles she would have to overcome as an adult. In her new memoir, I'm Glad My Mother Died, McCurdy goes into vivid detail about her time at Nickelodeon. In one of the most discussed portions of the book, McCurdy alleges she was sexually abused by a Nickelodeon employee known as "The Creator." 

    Although McCurdy doesn't name her alleged attacker directly, it's safe to assume she's referring to the disgraced Dan Schneider. Schneider—who created several of Nickelodeon's most popular live-action shows—has frequently been the target of an array of allegations based on his inappropriate behavior. The portion of McCurdy's recollection that fans find equally appalling as the abuse is her claim that unnamed Nickelodeon executives offered her $300,000 in hush money to keep the experience private. 

    McCurdy was a prominent figure on Nickelodeon during the late-2000s and early 2010s, first starring on iCarly, and then reprising her role in a short-lived spin-off called Sam and Cat that co-starred Ariana Grande. The new excerpt from I'm Glad My Mom Died includes scenes from a dinner McCurdy had with The Creator while the Sam and Cat spin-off was being worked out, and later, a scene from the show's final days, after The Creator had been accused of misconduct.

    The excerpt ends with a relieved McCurdy learning that Sam and Cat had been canceled after just one season. On a call with her various lawyers, managers, and agents, McCurdy says her team told her Nickelodeon was also offering her $300,000, of which one of her managers allegedly said, "They're giving you three hundred thousand dollars, and the only thing they want you to do is never talk publicly about your experience at Nickelodeon." Following this quote, McCurdy writes, "Specifically related to The Creator."

  • Check out how they made "Arcane" in the first episode of "Bridging the Rift" Jinx

    Netflix's animated series Arcane is a curious paradox. The show was somehow an unexpected hit and a guaranteed success simultaneously. Based on the sprawling world of Riot Game's hit franchise League of Legends, an installed fanbase was undoubtedly ready to support the show before it was even conceived. Swaying casual fans who weren't already League of Legends loyalists to watch the series was another matter entirely. 

    With a deep-seated cultural stigma associated with video game adaptations working against them, Riot Games knew they would have to pull out all of the proverbial stops to ensure Arcane was a hit. Several years after the idea's inception, Riot and Fortiche studios produced an intricately written and stunningly animated series that left millions of jaws agape. 

    In the video linked above from the official League of Legends YouTube channel, you can look at the elaborate production process that Arcane went through. The video is the first episode in a YouTube exclusive series, so if you're a fan of Arcane, keep your eyes peeled for subsequent episodes. 

  • John Leguizamo isn't happy with James Franco playing Fidel Castro

    Hollywood has slowly started to alter their bizarre history of whitewashing characters and casting white actors to play minorities. It's weird that it took this long, but, hey, better late than never. Even though there have been some changes in modernity, the practice hasn't entirely fallen out of favor. Thankfully, Hollywood isn't casting actors like Mickey Rooney as horrific Asian stereotypes anymore. They've just taken to casting Scarlett Johansson as an Asian woman- sans an absurdly racist depiction, of course, but a damaging one nonetheless

    The latest example of a white actor earning a role as a minority is James Franco landing the role of Fidel Castro. Aside from the copious scandals surrounding Franco, the move is an incredibly tone-deaf one considering the increased scrutiny that Hollywood is facing to implement more nuanced forms of representation. As a proud Latino actor, John Leguizamo isn't content to keep his mouth shut about the issue. 

    John Leguizamo took to Instagram to speak out against the recent casting of James Franco as Cuban revolutionary Fidel Castro in the upcoming independent film, "Alina of Cuba." Variety confirmed Franco's casting on Aug. 4. "Alina of Cuba" is directed by Miguel Bardem, based on a script written by Jose Rivera and Nilo Cruz.

    "How is this still going on?" Leguizamo asked his Instagram followers about Franco being cast as the Cuban historical figure. "How is Hollywood excluding us but stealing our narratives as well? No more appropriation Hollywood and streamers! Boycott! This F'd up! Plus seriously difficult story to tell without aggrandizement, which would be wrong! I don't got a [problem] with Franco but he ain't Latino!"

  • How Black Panther's Danai Gurira uses art to help change the world

    Following the overwhelmingly positive reception of the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever trailer, Marvel fans began dissecting every strip of footage for plot points and easter eggs. Although it's a safe bet to assume that T'Challa's sister Shuri will take over the Black Panther mantle, the trailer plays coy enough for fans to view Danai Gurira's character, Okoye, as an equally viable candidate. 

    Even if Okoye doesn't end up wearing the Panther suit, she's still instrumental in elevating the self-esteem of millions of Black girls that are inspired by her character. Danai Gurira is no stranger to playing tough-as-nails characters, though. Prior to her role in Black Panther, Gurira sliced and diced her way to international fame as Michonne, the katana-wielding zombie slaying machine in The Walking Dead. In doing so, Gurira helped shatter Hollywood's long-standing prejudice toward darker Black women in leading roles.

    In the video linked above, Gurira sits with the Off Camera show on YouTube to explain why she believes art can change the world. 

  • Woman sues ice cream company after miscarriage Ice Cream miscarriage

    We don't take enough time to thank the various workers in the food industry. The rigorous health inspections that restaurants and food manufacturers go through are essentially all that stands between customers and a host of diseases. Every once in a while, a major food distributor will issue a recall for their tainted products. Still, if the workforce inside any given eatery or food distributor were truly negligent, these occurrences would be significantly more frequent. However, whenever a recall or contamination happens, it's almost enough to put you off the idea of eating out altogether.

    A woman from Billerica, Massachusetts, suffered a horrible tragedy while on vacation in Florida. During her trip, the woman, who claims she was 11 weeks pregnant at the time, ate contaminated ice cream from Big Olaf ice cream. It was later discovered that the ice cream was linked to a listeria outbreak that eventually led to the woman's miscarriage.

    A Billerica mother is suing an ice cream company after she said a listeria outbreak tied to their products caused her miscarriage. The woman said she was 11 weeks pregnant when she ate Big Olaf ice cream in Florida.She got sick two weeks later and learned about her miscarriage.Health Department officials have since linked the ice cream to a listeria outbreak.The woman is asking for more than $30,000 in damages.

  • This silly Prozd sketch shows the power of student councils in anime Prozd

    Anime thrives on exaggeration. There isn't an aspect of anime and manga that isn't heightened to the most absurd proportions. Whether it's characters with preposterously verticle hair and eyes the size of teacup saucers to over-the-top reactions to the most mundane events, anime always has a flair for exaggeration.

    Outside of design elements and character actions, anime is also prone to stretch the true nature of events and professions. Take the anime student council, for example. Since shonen—which is intended for a younger male demographic—is the most dominant genre in Western anime, there are a staggering amount of stories that take place in school. And in any anime where they're featured, the student council's role and prestige are given the typical dose of anime exaggeration.

    In the video linked above, the YouTuber and voice actor, Prozd, does a hilarious take on how cartoonishly influential student councils are in most animes.

  • Adam "MCA" Yauch of the Beastie Boys would've been 58 today

    The Beastie Boys are rap royalty. The average rap fan may not want to admit it, but the Beasties helped the emerging genre access the suburban and punk rock markets. In addition to their marketability, the Beasties also produced a slew of certified bangers. As if their contributions to the early rap scene weren't enough, the Beastie Boys remained as relevant towards the end of the group's lifespan as they were in the beginning. Had the group kept cranking out hit albums, they might still be one of the most celebrated acts in Hip hop.

    Sadly, after their album Hot Sauce Committee Part Two, the band called it quits following the death of Adam "MCA" Yauch. Although all of the Beasties were equally instrumental in the group's success, surviving members Ad-Rock and Mike D have credited Yauch as the glue that held the group together. Yauch's sensitive and spiritual perspective helped the Beasties evolve from rowdy party boys to accomplished emcees and producers. 

    It still hurts to think I won't hear MCA's signature gravely vocals on new Beastie tracks anytime soon, but I can always take time to remember the man as he was. Happy posthumous birthday, Adam Yauch. From one New York boy to another, you kept it real. 

    You can listen to Yauch explain why he became a Buddhist in the video linked above. 

  • Colin Farrell shines in the trailer for The Banshees of Inisherin

    One of the main takeaways from Matt Reeves' The Batman was Colin Farrell's mesmerizing performance as the Penguin. The talented actor was so thoroughly caked in makeup and prosthetics that unless you had prior knowledge, it would've been impossible to tell Farrell was behind the performance. Despite the fact that Farrell has been working consistently for the last couple of decades, it's hard to remember the last time he was behind a role as universally lauded as Penguin. I can't speak for anyone else, but his turn in The Batman built a significant amount of anticipation for whatever his next role would be. 

    In the trailer linked above, Farrell stars in THE BANSHEES OF INISHERIN. The film focuses on the waning relationship between two lifelong friends in Ireland and the subsequent strain the feud places on their small town. The film also boasts boast the talents of Barry Keoghan, making the film a mini Batman reunion. 

  • Jake Gyllenhaal and Conor McGregor are starring in a Roadhouse remake

    Boy, this Road House remake has been clamoring for a UFC star to anchor the film for years now. Back in 2014, when Ronda Rousey was tearing through pop culture and the UFC women's bantamweight division, the Olympian was set to star as the lead of a Road House reboot. After two embarrassing losses and an equally embarrassing public meltdown because of them, Rousey was dropped from the project and Hollywood altogether. However, as Rousey was rising through the ranks of the UFC, the promotion was also nurturing another superstar who would quickly eclipse Rousey in cultural ubiquity: Conor McGregor. 

    Unlike Rousey, McGregor solidified his position in the UFC, with a series of record-setting Pay Per View bouts, before deciding to flirt with Hollywood. With his fight career rapidly declining, McGregor is finally deciding to gracefully slide into films by taking Rousey's position in the Road House revival. According to Deadline, Conor McGregor and Jake Gyllenhaal will co-star in a modern version of the Patrick Swayze classic.

    In what would mark his first acting job in a major studio movie, two-time UFC champion Conor McGregor is set to join Jake Gyllenhaal in Prime Video's new reimagining of the classic '80s action pic Road HouseHe joins a cast that already includes Billy MagnussenDaniela Melchior, Gbemisola Ikumelo, Lukas Gage, Hannah Love Lanier, Travis Van Winkle, B.K. Cannon, Arturo Castro, Dominique Columbus, Beau Knapp and Bob Menery.

  • What's it like to be mixed race in China? Mixed Race China

    Being mixed in any country isn't a picnic, but it's a nightmare in China. Or, rather, being mixed in China is a nightmare if you're half Black. Despite gobbling up land in Africa with a speed that would make the Dutch blush, China went so far as to ban Hip hop culture—arguably the Blackest form of media on Earth. 

    Consequently, if you happen to be mixed with Black in China, you'll be seen as a dirty half-breed. Whereas if you're mixed with white, you'll be the object of praise and desire. Although the expansion of Chinese business into Africa has caused a massive uptick in interracial marriages and, by extension, mixed children, the concept is still frowned upon in mainland China. In the video linked above, Vice explores the reality of being half Black in China. 

  • Marilyn Monroe's estate defends Ana De Armas' accent in Blonde Blonde Marilyn Monroe

    Biopics are usually drab. Humans are complex and complicated creatures, and that typically goes double for famous people. Biopics rarely ever paint a complete picture of the historical figure they're attempting to glorify. More often than not, the films are either too linear to merit interest or too celebratory to entertain. On the other hand, taking a historical figure and repurposing their life to fit a narrative? Sign me up yesterday. 

    When it comes to biopics, give me an Amadeus over Chaplin every day of the week. No matter how intriguing the subject may be, human life is pretty dull without the aid of creative license. Netflix's new film Blonde follows in the footsteps of Amadeus by adapting a fictionalized version of Marilyn Monroe's life. However, even though the film is openly fanciful, several people on social media have taken the film's star, Ana De Armas, to task for her prominent Spanish accent in Blonde's trailer.  

    Fans of De Armas sprang to her defense, claiming that the film isn't aiming for accuracy, as the entire narrative is already fictitious. Moreover, tons of American actors have been allowed to foul up almost every accent on the planet for decades. The debate has been raging for close to a week, but it seems like the Marilyn Monroe estate has given the final word, as they've chosen to defend De Armas' portrayal. 

    The film is not authorized by Monroe's estate, but the group stands by de Armas' casting nonetheless.

    "Marilyn Monroe is a singular Hollywood and pop culture icon that transcends generations and history," said Marc Rosen, president of entertainment at Authentic Brands Group (ABG), which owns the Marilyn Monroe Estate. "Any actor that steps into that role knows they have big shoes to fill. Based on the trailer alone, it looks like Ana was a great casting choice as she captures Marilyn's glamour, humanity and vulnerability. We can't wait to see the film in its entirety!"

  • HBO Max might be in a little trouble

    The war between streaming services has been a nail-bitter recently. Despite securing an early lead by, ya know, pioneering the concept, Netflix has been hemorrhaging money and users like no tomorrow. Newcomer Peacock, the official NBC service, failed to gain any new paid subscribers in their last quarter. Streaming services may be the future of entertainment, but several of them are having difficulty finding their sea legs at present. 

    HBO Max is another example of a streaming service going through some growing pains. Although they came out the gate with a slew of content while also serving as a safe haven for film releases during the first wave of Covid lockdowns, HBO Max is starting to feel the pinch of the Warner Brothers and Discovery merger. Virtually every piece of content on Warner Brothers and Discovery's shared roster has been caught in the crossfire of the company's consolidation efforts, and it seems like HBO Max is about to experience a few merger-related cuts. 

    Adding a dark irony to the phrase "too big to fail," multiple insiders say Warner Bros. Discovery plans to consolidate the companies' two biggest streamers, HBO Max and Discover+, a move that many fear will result in significant layoffs and content losses at HBO Max. The merger will also reportedly draw a harder line in the sand between Warner Bros. unscripted and scripted divisions. HBO content chief Casey Bloys is reportedly set to take on a more senior position once consolidation is complete. 

    According to TheWrap, multiple industry insiders expect Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav to make an announcement ahead of the companies' upcoming quarterly earnings report, which marks the first time Warner Bros. has ranked as the world's No. 2 entertainment giant.

  • The last Salem "witch" has been cleared Salem Witch Trials

    The mercurial nature of human understanding makes history both a compelling and horrifying subject. When human ignorance is benign, it usually manifests in the form of silly beliefs, like flat Earth. Once an intellectual blindspot mutates into an unwavering and unassailable belief, ignorance can quickly become malevolent. That's when regimes and the mobs that follow them start punishing people, often violently, for stepping outside the societal convention and group think. 

    Few periods of history exemplify this phenomenon as potently as the Salem witch trials. Due to a gross misapprehension of science combined with inherent misogyny, several innocent women- and a few men- were wrongfully convicted and brutally murdered by unruly mobs of colonists. 

    Although most of the convictions associated with the Salem witch trial have been overturned, one woman, Elizabeth Johnson Jr, was never publically cleared. However, thanks to an eighth-grade civics class, Johnson's wrongful conviction of witchcraft was overturned last week. Those murderous colonists would've gotten away with destroying Johnson's legacy, too, if it weren't for those meddling kids

    But through it all, one woman remained unacknowledged, her legacy still tarnished by false allegations: Elizabeth Johnson Jr. Now, Johnson's name has been cleared, finally bringing justice to the last conviction of the Salem witch trials, reports the New York Times' Vimal Patel. 

    The exoneration was inside a state budget signed by Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker last week—329 years after Johnson was found guilty of witchcraft. This official pardon marks the successful conclusion of a lobbying campaign by an unexpected group of advocates: Carrie LaPierre, a Massachusetts teacher, and her eighth-grade civics class. 

  • Spectrum cable ordered to pay north of $7 billion to family of an elderly woman murdered by an installer Spectrum

    We try not to think about it, but there's an enormous amount of social trust we rely on for daily interactions. A trip to your favorite fast food spot could quickly become tragic if the clerk behind the counter has a screw loose. The same applies to any service person that enters your home. We'd like to believe that whatever vetting process a company utilizes when hiring an employee will shield us from danger, and most times, we're correct. However, there are always a few monsters that slip through the cracks. 

    When Betty Thomas allowed Roy James Holden into her home for a cable installation in 2019, she could have never assumed the man would murder her the following day. A few days ago, Charter Communications, the parent company of Spectrum cable, was forced to pay north of $7 billion in damages to Thomas' family by a Dallas county jury. The story is a chilling reminder of how unpredictable life can be. 

    Holden returned the next day in uniform and using the company's van while he was off, posing as if he was on the job, and killed her, then used her cards for a shopping spree after her murder, prosecutors said.

    In June, a Dallas County jury found Charter Communications negligent and grossly negligent in Thomas' death.

    The jury awarded a verdict of $375 million in compensatory damages and said the company was responsible for paying 90% of it after the trial revealed "systemic failures" in the company's pre-employee screening, hiring and supervision practices. 

  • Bullet Train Director David Leitch was once Brad Pitt's stunt double Bullet Train

    Teddy Pendergrass offers some salient advice on his classic track Be for real, from Harold Melvin & the Bluenote's album I Miss You. Pendergrass says, reminiscing about his mother's wisdom, "chances go 'round. She said, 'The same people you see going up, you meet the same old faces coming down.'" The line implores the listener to exercise humility when dealing with people they might deem below their station. Through chance on their end or misfortune on your own, the roles might be reversed in the future. Few industries exemplify the lyric as potently as Hollywood. 

    David Leitch, director of the upcoming Bullet Train, has become one of the most in-demand filmmakers in the industry. As the director of the first John Wick, Leitch has been touted as a visionary in the field of action cinema. In Bullet Train, Leitch directs Brad Pitt, a shocking inversion of their previous relationship, as Leitch used to be Brad Pitt's stunt double

    When it came to reuniting with Pitt, Leitch said he was excited for audiences to see the superstar in a new light.

    "I think people hadn't seen Brad like this in a long time, maybe ever," the director said. "He was dying to do comedy and when we sent him this script I think he responded and saw the things that we saw in it. It has great characters, especially [his character] Ladybug. He was laughing halfway through it and said, 'I can do this. Leichty let's do it. Leitchy let's do it!'"

  • Here's what a Disney version of A Clockwork Orange would look like A Clockwork Orange

    No company is ever really too big to fail. However, Disney might be the closest any company will get to fitting the description. Prior to the acquisition of 20th Century Fox, Disney was already well on their way to owning every inch of entertainment. With Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and their princess content tucked safely in their portfolio, Disney is only a few studios away from having a monopoly on nostalgia.

    At this point, it'd be easier to count the IPs that Disney doesn't own. I never thought I'd live to see the day when The Simpsons and Family Guy would be under the Disney umbrella, but here we are. Any franchise or film is fair game now. 

    In the video linked above, the YouTube channel JabaToons creates an eerily, tonally accurate trailer for a straight-to VHS release of a Disney animated version of the Stanely Kubrick classic, A Clockwork Orange. 

  • Warner Brothers just pulled the plug on Batgirl Batgirl

    Even though the Marvel cinematic universe predates the DC extended universe, the latter is showing signs of deterioration, whereas the former is only building momentum. DC's struggles with constructing a rival cinematic universe to compete with Marvel truly began with their first crossover film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Since that gloriously mismanaged flick, DC has been playing catch-up ball. Over the last three years, barring duds like Wonder Woman 1984, DC began to offer the mildest form of competition through several competent and well-made films. Sadly, it seems like their good fortune is coming to an end.

    Fans at San Diego Comic-Con noticed that DC Comics' film presence seemed disproportionately lacking compared to Marvel's overwhelming amount of teasers and trailers. The dearth of trailers caused fans to speculate about a host of DC projects that should either be in post-production or gearing up for release. Although The Flash and Aquaman 2 were the two films most conspicuous by their absence, fans also noticed the lack of information about the (formerly) upcoming Batgirl movie. According to Variety, Warner Brothers has pulled the plug on Batgirl's release after an "irredeemable" test screening. 

    Studio insiders insist the decision to axe "Batgirl" was not driven by the quality of the film or the commitment of the filmmakers, but by the desire for the studio's slate of DC features to be at a blockbuster scale. "Batgirl" was budgeted to screen in homes on HBO Max, and not for a major global release in theaters. The initial $75 million production budget for the project, which finished principal photography earlier this year and was in post-production, reached $90 million, due in part to COVID-related delays and protocols.

  • Mr. Rogers vs The Incredible Hulk The raging beast inside

    Fred Rogers: veteran, aspiring minister, searching for a way to tap into the hidden potential that all children have. Then an accidental encounter with television alters his destiny. And now, whenever adult fans of Fred Rogers hear, "it's a beautiful day in the neighborhood," a startling metamorphosis occurs.

    Adult fans of Rogers are driven by nostalgia and pursued by existential dread. The adult fans are wanted for taxes and responsibilities they didn't ask for. Fred Rogers is believed to be dead, and he must let the world think that he is dead. Until adult fans of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood watch old clips of his work and find the remnants of Rogers' precious spirit dwelling within them. 

    In the video linked above, Fred Rogers drops by the set of The Incredible Hulk to pay a visit to Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno. This clip brought a smile to my face, and I hope you guys get a kick out of it too. 

  • South Korea is about to go to the moon South Korea

    I love the duality of North and South Korea. The two countries almost feel like the real-life version of the Animaniacs' "good idea, bad idea" segments. However, instead of silly gags, it's about the differences between tyranny and representative democracy. 

    No one can deny that South Korea is having a cultural moment right now. Between Parasite winning the Oscar for best picture, Squid Game becoming a global phenomenon, and bands like BTS and Blackpink ruling the music market, South Korea is in a new stratum of cultural omnipresence. Although making inroads in global culture is important, a nation's scientific progress is definitely more impactful. 

    On Tuesday, South Korea will send an unmanned probe to the Moon in the country's first lunar mission. The trip will put South Korea in rarefied air, as very few nations have ventured to the Moon. The country is targeting mid-December as the month when the craft will officially reach the Moon's orbit. 

    On Tuesday, August 2, a South Korean spacecraft carrying scientific instruments will launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida, and begin charting a course to the moon.

    The spacecraft is expected to arrive at its destination in mid-December and enter an orbit about 100 kilometers above the lunar surface, where its instruments will study the moon for at least a year, reports ScienceInsider's Dennis Normile.

    The probe is expected to measure the magnetic force above the moon's surface, search for the presence of water ice, uranium, helium-3, silicon and aluminum, and map the surface topography to find landing spots for future missions, writes Space.com's Leonard David. The spacecraft carries "a cadre of instruments that will yield important information about the Moon," Clive Neal, a lunar scientist at the University of Notre Dame who is not involved in the mission, tells ScienceInsider.

    South Korea will become just one of a handful of countries to have sent a mission to the moon. "Everybody is so happy and excited," Kyeong-ja Kim, a planetary geoscientist at the Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources in Daejeon, and principal investigator for one of the craft's instruments, tells Nature News' Smriti Mallapaty.

    "It's just so cool to see more and more countries sending up their own orbiters and adding to the global understanding of what's going on on the moon," Rachel Klima, a planetary geologist at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland, who is part of the research team, tells Nature News.
