Tiger Woods poised to strike as Francesco Molinari leads Masters

(CNN)If Saturday at the Masters was electric, Sunday could be supercharged. Four-time champion Woods parred his first four holes and was disappearing in the leaders’ rear view mirror, but when he finally engaged gear at the seventh, he, too, roared up the leaderboard. A fifth birdie at the 16th sparked a tumultuous roar as he tied for the lead. By the end of a sun-drenched, dazzling day of golf, Italy’s British Open champion Molinari held a two-shot lead at 13 under over Woods and Finau going into the final round. ‘Great test’ Woods, of course, is trying to pull off a fairytale comeback with a fifth Green Jacket 14 years after his last, and a 15th major 11 years after …

The Black Hole Officially Has A Name Here’s What It Means

Eight powerful telescopes here on Earth captured the world’s first image of a black hole some 54 million light-years away in what’s been dubbed one of the greatest scientific discoveries of our time. Now, the celestial event has a name, and let’s just say it’s as epic as the scientists who discovered it. Pōwehi: “embellished dark source of unending creation”. Fitting, right? Astronomers collaborated with language professor Larry Kimura who named the black hole from an ancient Hawai’ian chant called Kumulipo whose earliest written record comes from an 18th-century document describing the creation of the universe. “Kumulipo also consists of two words: kumu meaning the source, and lipo meaning darkness. So, literally the source of darkness,” Kimura told IFLScience. “Pōwehi consists of two words, pō and …

The breakout stars of Game of Thrones

Metallic Asteroids May Once Have Had Iron-Erupting Volcanoes

Billions of years ago when our Solar System was first forming, molten blobs of liquid metal once hung around suspended in space – the result of catastrophic collisions stripping protoplanets of their rocky outer layers in order to expose their iron-rich molten core. Now, researchers at the University of California, Santa Cruz have reason to believe that as the metal cooled and solidified around the outside of these asteroids, volcanoes spewing liquid iron may have blown through a solid iron crust on their surface. And there’s only one way to find out for certain. The research is part of NASA’s Psyche mission set to launch in 2022 to a unique metal asteroid known as Psyche, which is orbiting around the …
