Forty-five years ago today, a man landed on the moon for the first time. Understandably, he was a little nervous. Neil Armstrong's heart raced to 160 beats per minute as the lunar vehicle touched down on the moon's surface. But as he made that great leap for mankind and walked around the moon, his heart steadied and slowed. The rhythm of his heartbeat, which Berlin-based singer Louise Gold captured off of a radio program, become the basis for her cover of John Lennon's "Oh My Love."

A wave of sadness tore through the internet this evening, as news spread that the original RickRoll'D video was being blocked to YouTube viewers in the U.S. and elsewhere. Fearing the end of an era, I went to the YouTube link and, somehow, it worked for me. Does this video play for you?

This weekend is the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission , when man first set foot on the moon, but Buzz Aldrin just tipped us off to another of his many accomplishments: He took the world's first space selfie back in 1966. Eat your heart out, Instagram.

Poor Conan Antonio Motti. The guy speaks up at a work meeting, and all of a sudden Lord Vader is trying to put his lights out from across the room. But the worst part isn't the force-strangling or lack of faith. It's having to work alongside the jerk and pretend like nothing ever happened.

What a week! We debunked some more of those dumb fake images you've seen on social media; we shot down the notion that smartphones will kill GoPro; we looked at the jet we could've had if we hadn't blown all that money on the F-35; and more!

After the tragic crash of Malaysia Airlines flight 17 on Thursday, and amid the wall-to-wall news coverage, I began to wonder about something we don't typically see on the news — How do these incidents affect pilots? I reached out to my pilot friend, Mike to find out.

It's summer, which means Apple is probably updating the iPhone soon, which means the iPhone 6 rumor merry-go-round is spinning up. We've heard that Apple might use sapphire for a tougher iPhone screen, but experiments with alleged Apple materials say that might not exactly be the case.

Sprinkling scofflaws in the drought-stricken state of California are about to get an expensive wake up call. As water consumption rates climb despite Governor Brown's call for a voluntary 20 percent per household reduction, the State Water Board has voted to impose fines up to $500 for a variety of wasteful outdoor watering practices. Here's how to save water where you can.

Dr. James McLurkin has a swarm of robots. Individually, they're not that smart, but a crateful of them behaves in some very complex ways, like the bees that inspired them. Gizmodo got to see the wee machines in action, and while they're adorable, they represent some serious future bot capabilities.

This weekend marks the 45 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission landing the first men on the moon. Like all missions, NASA had a contingency plan. Space historian Amy Shira Teitel explains the astronauts' grim orders if a lunar lander malfunction had left Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin stranded on the moon.

The myth: You can't fold a paper in half more than eight times.* The reality: Given a paper large enough—and enough energy—you can fold it as many times as you want. The problem: If you fold it 103 times, the thickness of your paper will be larger than the observable Universe: 93 billion light-years. Seriously.

I love calligraphy to the point in which I shiver with pleasure when I see someone writing beautifully—slowly and carefully. I'd have liked to see Turkish calligrapher Tolga Girgin making these 3D writings spotted by Colossal.

Driving in Russia is flirting with death—watch these three accidents happening in 30 seconds. First, the grey van violently rams itself into the car in front of it. The red car cuts off the dash cam and skids by. And then the original grey van zooms into the intersection and gets smashed sideways by a bus and an SUV.

Scotty Bob, the crazy guy zipping the air in the wingsuit, is flying so fast you might miss it but he comes so impossibly close to scraping the mountain on some of his turns that he can pretty much high five the photographer taking a picture of him.

It's man's most-pondered question: Does size matter? While there are social and scientific explanations of the varying size of male genitalia, I feel as though none of them truly answer the question for the individual. They seem rather to quell the ongoing question only temporarily, but without an answer you can take into the bedroom.

If your average work day feels like an un-choreographed dance of chaos, perhaps this graceful wall clock will bring some peace of mind while you wait for five o'clock to roll around. The Dancing Wall Clock's hands have been replaced with segments of a ballerina, resulting in an endless series of poses and pirouettes while they rotate about its face.

Sure, opera isn't exactly mainstream and is often times pretty atonal and cacophonous, but when written by Swedish pop duo The Knife, it can wield a more alluring sound.

Remember @CongressEdits, the tweetbot that alerts whenever a Wikipedia article is edited from a government IP address? There's a Russian version now, and it just uncovered some pretty drastic edits to a Wikipedia article that mentions Flight MH17 , originating from a Russian government IP address.

Drugs are illegal and often pretty bad for you. But who needs LSD when the world has talented designers like Masakazu Shirane and Saya Miyazaki. Last year, the Japanese duo took on the challenge of creating a mind-bending environment inside of a shipping container—and did they ever succeed.

Good news for people with horrible taste in movies: Netflix is testing out a private viewing feature. Now the only ones aware of your affinity for Jungle 2 Jungle will be you and your crippling shame.
