Falcon and Winter Soldier Easter egg calls back to Marvel comics in 1 painful way

That John Walker scene is very reminiscent of another Marvel comics moment.

A surprisingly quiet and contemplative hour of television, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Episode 5 does a lot to set the stage for its finale.

The episode seemingly wraps up both its Isaiah Bradley and Baron Zemo storylines in fairly economic fashion and ends right when Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson is preparing to go face off with Karli Morgenthau and the Flag-Smashers in New York.

The episode also sees Mackie’s Sam and Sebastian Stan’s Bucky reclaiming the Captain America shield from Wyatt Russell’s John Walker — in a manner that very specifically (and painfully) connects to a memorable moment from the Marvel comics.

Airbus will use lasers to improve the worst part of flying

If The Graduate were made today, they’d say there’s a great future in lasers. Airbus seems to think so.


Airbus wants to take a page out of the Dr. Evil playbook and improve in-flight wifi with frickin’ laser beams.

OK, so it’s not quite to make your in-flight Fortnite dreams come true. Instead, the French aerospace company wants to use lasers to connect aircraft to geostationary satellites thousands of miles away to improve in-flight connectivity in a secure, reliable way.

The project is called UltraAir. Airbus hopes it will enable aircraft and satellites to communicate without using the radio frequency (RF) bands currently used by satellite systems. Those RF bands are becoming increasingly crowded. Instead, UltraAir will use data-encoded lasers to create faster transmission rates that have a direct line to the far-away sats.

Will The Last of Us become HBO's next big hit?

Naughty Dog

The Last of Us Part II is a critical darling. It currently holds the record for attaining the most Game of the Year awards in history with 261 total accolades. If you’ve got that much of a hit on your hands, there’s no way you’ll decide to slow down. It’s possible that the sequel will be the last we see Joel and Ellie, but we’re certainly not done with their apocalyptic world. A new game could follow a number of characters. While we await a follow-up, HBO making a prestige television show based on Naughty Dog's hit franchise.
