CubeSats could soon be zooming around space under their own power

An artist's rendering of the CubeSat's new onboard propulsion system concept.

Rubik's-cube-sized CubeSats are a nifty, cheap way for scientists to put a research vessel into space, but they're limited to orbiting where they're launched – until now. Los Alamos researchers have created and tested a safe and innovative rocket motor concept that could soon see CubeSats zooming around space and even steering themselves back to Earth when they're finished their mission.

Google Pixel XL review: Killer camera, Apple approach

New Atlas reviews the Google Pixel XL, which marks a more iPhone-like approach from Google

Google killed its Nexus lineup of smartphones this year and replaced it with a "made by Google" pair of Pixel phones. In the Nexus days, Google worked with hardware-makers as collaborative creative partners, but in this case it sounds like silent partner HTC was more like a hired contractor that simply made the phone Google told it to. So what does a full-fledged Google-phone look like? Based on the larger of the two in this pair, it's a breakthrough in mobile photography that happens to be in very good shape everywhere else too.

Dazed and confused: Rising C02 sends fish swimming towards predators

Carbon dioxide can make fish do some strange things

Many species have found themselves in harm's way as a result of the changing climate, but where the phenomenon may have a particularly profound effect is under the ocean. This is because rising concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere make the waters more acidic, a phenomenon that poses a real threat to the coral in Australia's Great Barrier Reef. Some of the ocean's fish may prove another victim to this chemical reaction, with new research revealing that more acidic waters throws their survival instincts out of whack, and can sometimes even cause them to swim towards predators.

Antarctica-spec fatbike puts the power to both wheels

Christini Bicycles claims that it has created the world's first AWD fatbike

All-wheel-drive (AWD) for bicycles is one of those things that's been around in one form or another for some time now, but is still mostly considered an oddity. In cases where cyclists have to ride on ice or plough through snowdrifts, however, it starts to make some sense … and when those people are riding across Antarctica, it makes a lot of sense. That's what Australian adventurer Kate Leeming is attempting to do, and if you've got the cash, you can buy an AWD fatbike like the one that she'll be using.
