SpaceX recoups a rocket without really trying

SpaceX’s rocket landings have become almost routine in just a short couple of years, but the company is still looking to push the boundaries. It was doing just that as a Falcon 9 booster came hurtling back to Earth toward the Atlantic Ocean, an encounter it was not expected to survive. But survive it did…

The Magicians Bosses Explain That Shocking Episode 4 Ending

This interview contains spoilers for The Magicians Season 3, episode 4, “Be the Penny.”
Whoever is editing The Magicians deserves a raise. The final shot of this week’s episode was an exercise in audience torture, and all credit goes to whoever decided to cut the episode mid-line, total mic drop, on one of the biggest reveals of the season. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves: So much happened in “Be the Penny,” and it all happened from Penny’s (Arjun Gupta) perspective in a rare hour that bucked tradition to focus on the Traveler who was trapped outside of his dead body on the astral plane, without anyone realizing it.
After the most awkward funeral ever – where no one cried and no one could hear Penny shouting, “Appreciate me!” at their inappropriately chill expressions – the episode jumped around from storyline to storyline, all from Penny’s POV as he traveled from place to place. All he wanted was for one of his friends to notice him, but they were a bit preoccupied. Eliot (Hale Appleman) was trying to save his wife and daughter from cannibals in the Neitherlands, Julia (Stella Maeve) saved Kady (Jade Tailor) from overdosing, Brakebills was officially closed and sold, and Quentin (Jason Ralph) and Julia were trying to find the second gold key on their quest.
