NASA takes Snapchat to the International Space Station for a day



On Monday, May 16, the International Space Station made its mind-boggling 100,000th orbit around the Earth. The ISS, humanity’s longest-running habitable artificial satellite, was launched Nov. 20, 1998, and completes one orbit approximately every hour and a half. 

To celebrate the occasion, NASA astronaut and ISS commander Tim Kopra is on a Snapchat spree, showing what it looks like to live some 250 miles above the Earth. 

NASA’s “Day in Space” can be found in the form of a Snapchat Live Story, accessible through the three-lined icon in the bottom right of Snapchat’s main screen. Read more…

Twitter, please tell us how you really feel about Tweetdeck



Twitter, we’re confused about your feelings for Tweetdeck.

In the five years since Twitter acquired the tweet management platform, it has never been clear whether Twitter fully embraced Tweetdeck or grudgingly put up with it just to keep the power users happy.

Someone created an unofficial, yet convincing Tesla Model 3 configurator



Well, this should either ease or make unbearable the waiting process for those 400,000 Model 3 pre-orderers.

Some two years before deliveries are likely to begin, a Tesla fan has created a convincing unofficial Tesla Model 3 configurator. It’s called model3config, and it allows users to slather the all-new Tesla in nine different body colors and two distinct wheel shades.

If you click the interior configurator tab, though, it takes you two a “check back again soon” screen with an image of the Millennium Falcon cabin. Read more…
