    In Pictures: Houston, we have a bug - 9 famous software glitches in space

    There’s never a good time to run into software bugs, but some times are worse than others - like during a mission to space. Spacecraft of all shapes and sizes rely heavily on software to complete their objectives. But those missions can be quickly ended by the simplest of human errors when writing code. The omission of an overbar here or overflow error checking code there can mean the difference between success or failure, not to mention the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars, years of work and, on manned missions, human life. Use the arrows above to read about 9 examples that show that, despite the care with which these systems are built, bugs have occurred in spacecraft software since we started to fling rockets into space - and will, no doubt, continue to crop up.

    Golfers got into the swing on the final afternoon of EDGE 2015 when they competed for the prestigious (well, it is now) EDGE Cup. Two golf courses were reserved for the event- the newly refurbished Port Douglas Resort and the Palmer Sea Reef Golf Course. Sponsors and co-hosts formed teams of 4 for a shotgun start over both courses. It has to be said though, it is the first time we've seen a crocodile on-course - now that's what we call a natural hazard. ARN Editor, Allan Swann, took his camera gear and a buggy and recorded the action.

  • This robot from Zuta Labs may change the way you print

    The future of portable printing is rolling slowly across a piece of A4 paper on a hot Thursday afternoon in Jerusalem's early summer. After what seems like an eternity compared to an inkjet device, the prototype creates seven characters with two spaces; the end result looks like it was spit out of an aging dot matrix printer.

  • The best iPhone lens kit: Put a little DSLR on the front of your iPhone

    Thanks to the ubiquity of our smartphone cameras, we're all taking more photos than ever. But those photos are largely confined to the iPhone's one-size-fits-all, somewhat wide angle lens; gone are the days when most of us were willing to schlep around an SLR with multiple lenses, or even a single bulky zoom lens. You can recapture some of your SLR's interchangeable lens flexibility, however, with a set of add-on lenses for your iPhone. We've rounded up 6 of the most popular options and put them to the test: Here are our recommendations.
