    Don’t book your tickets for the Titanic II just yet. A spokesman for Australian tycoon Clive Palmer told the Belfast Telegraph that the project to bring an exact replica of the original ill-fated ship has been pushed back from 2016 to 2018. The new ship will be practically identical to the original luxury liner, which famously sank in April 1912 after striking an iceberg on its maiden voyage.

    U.S. Senate votes to ban taxes on Internet access

    WASHINGTON — The Senate voted Thursday to bar permanently state and local governments from taxing access to the Internet, something Congress has prevented repeatedly before but only on a temporary basis.

    Just over 100 years after he published his general theory of relativity, scientists have found what Albert Einstein predicted as part of the theory: gravitational waves. “We have detected gravitational waves.

Reitze made the announcement Thursday at the National Press Club in Washington surrounded by other LIGO researchers and National Science Foundation head France Cordova. The […]
