Movies, stars, and fashion galore is what the Cannes Film Festival never fails to draw our attention to.

Brazil has been bombarded with a major problem which may affect the highly anticipated events.

The Olympics are being questioned whether or not to be postponed for the following reasons:

  • The dangers associated with the Zika virus
  • Tourism will increase risks of spreading the virus to other countries

The incredible thing, according to Pascal Oesch, NASA investigator, is that the galaxy we’re seeing isn’t in the present state; it is what it looked like 13.4 billion years ago based on the fact that light takes a long time to travel across the universe. It is a major breakthrough with the research NASA has been conducting. Earth may not be the only place in space containing life.
