SPACE: Watch Perseverance Land On mars

Perseverance

For the first time ever, you can watch a rover landing on Mars. And it’s epic on many levels. Human beings have been dropping machines on Mars since the 1970s: landers that parachuted to the surface, rovers that were destroyed during landing, and later rovers that survived their landings inside giant, bouncing cushions of airbags. Now powerful skycranes lower NASA rovers to the surface. But in all that time, all those spectacular successes and failures have taken place out of sight on another world.

Find Your Ooga Boo With Cher

Ooga Boo

A delightfully weird release came down the pike from Cher this week, a new track called “Ooga Boo” from the animated children’s television show Home: Adventures with Tip & Oh, streaming now on Netflix. The music video finds Cher styled as an aqua-colored extraterrestrial adorned in various lavish outfits, all the while traveling through space with the title characters, at one point landing on a throne for one Chercophonie.
