    Superman Ruins Gravity in About 60 Seconds With Some Clever Editing and Gives It a New Ending

    Yeah, the plot of Gravity doesn't last that long when a guy who doesn't need to breathe in space and is capable of spontaneous flight shows up. Thanks a lot for ruining everything, Superman.

    Warner Brothers just registered a whole bunch of... erm, interesting domain names that might give us clues to the title of the next Man of Steel movie. They're very... well, black.

    Astronaut Luca Parmitano Wins Halloween

    We saw great Halloween costumes this year. There was this cosplay party in Toronto. Patrick Stewart even dressed as a lobster and got in a bathtub, but we're prepared to call it: Luca Parmitano wins Halloween 2013. While on board the International Space Station, he donned a Superman costume. Beat that! You can't, because you're not in space.

    Five-Dimensional Data Crystals Exist, Can Store Information for “Practically” Forever

    We see science fiction becoming reality all the time, but of all the sci-fi conceits around, societies that store all their information (and giant holograms of Marlon Brando) in glowing "data crystals" seemed to be especially kitschy and out there.
