First Man is a first-rate movie about America’s most revered astronaut

Ars Technica - October 12, 2018 - 2:16pm

First Man movie

First things first: If you're interested in space, don't hesitate before seeing the new movie about Neil Armstrong's life, First Man. I'm passionate about space history, NASA, commercial space, and the whole enterprise of trying to push things and people off this planet and deeper into space. And I absolutely loved this movie. It opens Friday across the United States.

This is a movie of two parts. The first storyline pertains to Armstrong and his family life, his relationship with his wife Janet, a daughter named Karen who died young, and his two boys, Rick and Mark. This part of the film is often a bit melancholy, as Armstrong struggles with Karen's death and how to communicate the risks of his profession with his family. The humanity of these scenes will appeal to some, but not others seeking a purely action movie. I found the scenes between Ryan Gosling, who does a fine job as Armstrong, and Claire Foy as his wife, to be compelling.

Fitbit Charge 3 review: Peppering a fitness tracker with smartwatch powers

Ars Technica - October 12, 2018 - 12:30pm

Enlarge (credit: Valentina Palladino)

Fitbit contracted smartwatch fever last year. And since the debut of its Ionic smartwatch, the company's signature fitness trackers haven't made as many waves as they once did. That's due in part to users embracing the smartwatch more as the technology improves over time.

But fitness trackers aren't dead—or at least, Fitbit hopes they aren't—and the company's new Charge 3 tracker is designed for users who want some smartwatch features in a fitness tracker's simple-band package.

Even today, fitness trackers have a few advantages over smartwatches: they're easier to wear since they have slimmer, lighter profiles. They're less complicated because they're designed primarily to keep you fit (not necessarily for things like emailing on the go). And, perhaps the most important distinction of all, fitness trackers are generally less expensive than smartwatches.

Blue Origin delays first New Shepard flights. The space venture founded by Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos is now planning to send its first crew on a suborbital space trip during the first half of 2019, GeekWire reports. Blue Origin's plan calls for its own employees to get aboard for the first crewed flights. The company already has former space shuttle astronauts on its payroll, including Nicholas Patrick and Jeff Ashby. When the publication asked Blue Origin CEO Bob Smith whether the first crew has been selected, he replied, "I'm not going to comment on that."
