In 1976, Kathy Sullivan was finishing up her Ph.D. in oceanography when an intriguing, if somewhat far-fetched, opportunity presented itself: the chance to become an astronaut. Her expertise was in the geology of the deep-sea floor, a few hundred miles in the exact opposite direction of where a space flight would take her, and joining NASA , she realized, could shut the door forever on her career in oceanography. “I loved the expeditionary part of oceanography best of all,” she says, “being out at sea, adapting to what odd circumstances came your way, bad weather or broken equipment. I adored that.” But on a visit home during Christmas break, her brother told her that NASA was recruiting astronauts for its new space-shuttle program. It seemed at first to have nothing to do with the path she was on, but once she read up on it, she realized NASA was looking for people to do in space what she loved doing at sea — planning and executing scientific expeditions.

Music streaming services have replaced CDs and music downloads, but they haven’t offered the option of listening in surround sound until recently. Many classic albums were remixed in 5.1 surround sound during the late 1990s and early to mid 2000s on niche formats like DVD-A (audio) and SACD (super audio CD). These formats never reached mainstream success, which means tracking down the physical discs can be time consuming and expensive. But Amazon Music HD and Tidal have recently introduced the ability to stream music in Dolby Atmos, a new format of surround sound that’s used in movie theaters to create an immersive listening experience. If you have the right equipment, sound will be sent toward you and above you, bouncing off your ceiling to create a more realistic … [Read more...] about Everything you Need to Stream Music in Surround Sound
Matthew Sato is set as a series regular opposite Peyton Elizabeth Lee, Kathleen Rose Perkins, Jason Scott Lee and Mapuana Makia in Disney+’s upcoming comedy series Doogie Kamealoha, M.D. Written by Kourtney Kang and set in present-day Hawaii, Doogie Kamealoha, M.D. reimagines the Neil Patrick Harris-starring Doogie Howser M.D. as a half-hour medical dramedy with a female lead. It follows Lahela “Doogie” Kameāloha (Peyton Elizabeth Lee), a 16-year-old mixed-race girl who juggles a budding medical career and life as a teenager. Guiding Lahela — and also complicating things — is her family, including her spitfire Irish mother Dr. Clara Hannon (Perkins), who’s also Chief of Staff at the hospital and Lahela’s supervisor, and her Hawaiian “Local Boy” father (Jason Scott Lee) who struggles to accept that his daughter is no longer his little girl. Sato will play Kia, the brother of Dr. Lahela Kamealoha. Dayna Bochco, widow of Doogue Howser co-creator Steven Bochco, and son, … [Read more...] about ‘Doogie Kamealoha, M.D.’: Matthew Sato Joins ‘Doogie Howser’ Reboot At Disney+
Less than a month after securing actor Paul Rudd as the title character in Ant-Man , Marvel Studios has landed Michael Douglas to play Hank Pym in this Phase Three adventure. Marvel had been pursuing him for the role early on. Michael Douglas was initially cautious to pursue the role, but he reportedly had a change of heart over the holiday season.

On Thursday (or Friday, depending on your time zone), Kygo will release his virtual concert, performed from atop a snowy mountain in Norway’s Sunnmore Alps. To make it happen, the Norwegian DJ and pop hitmaker spent more than $100,000 of his own money, according to manager Myles Shear. “Since I started touring, this is the longest time I’ve gone without playing a show so I wanted to do something really special in Norway,” Kygo tells Rolling Stone . “To me, the Sunnmore Alps are a perfect setting that displays the beauty of Norway. Growing up, I’ve spent a lot of time skiing and hiking in the mountains across Norway and wanted to show everyone who hasn’t been to Norway a bit of what it’s really like.” Related Stories Kings of Leon Will Be the First Band to Release an Album as an NFT Shawn Mendes' Manager Is Helping Launch a New NFT Marketplace Related Stories From Soup Nazis to Nuts: 100 Best 'Seinfeld' Characters 'Silence of the Lambs': 'It … [Read more...] about Kygo Helicoptered a Piano Up a Mountain for His Virtual Concert
