ISS crew’s 360-degree video is the closest you’ll get to space

You can always count on the crew of the International Space Station to harness technology to bring us up to the heavens with them. Back in July, they uploaded enough footage to map the entire station out on Google Streetview. Today, the crew uploaded the first spacewalk recorded in 360-degree video. Immerse yourself in footage of mankind maintaining its farthest outpost at the border of space.

The video was made by the Russian space agency Roscosmos in collaboration with Russian news outlet RT. It shows cosmonauts Sergey Ryazansky and Fyodor Yurchikhin performing station maintenance and launching three nano-satellites into space during 7.5-hour spacewalk performed back in August. Two of them, named Tanyusha, were created by students in Kursk. Another, the Tomsk-TPU 120 from the city of Tomsk, actually broadcasts multilingual messages that amateur radio enthusiasts can listen to by tuning into frequencies 437.025 MHz and 437.05 MHz.

The video captures the cosmonauts tossing three of the tiny satellites into orbit, letting them fall into gravitational limbo as the massive earth spins beneath it. Watch for the sheer daunting perspective on humanity and stay til the end as a time-lapse speeds up the spinning planet below.

Samsung’s phone-as-desktop concept now runs Linux

Samsung's DeX is a clever way to turn your phone into a desktop computer. However, there's one overriding problem: you probably don't have a good reason to use it instead of a PC. And Samsung is trying to fix that. It's unveiling Linux on Galaxy, an app-based offering that (surprise) lets you run Linux distributions on your phone. Ostensibly, it's aimed at developers who want to bring their work environment with them wherever they go. You could dock at a remote office knowing that your setup will be the same as usual.

It's not quite the same as your typical Ubuntu or Debian install. Linux on Galaxy launches through an app, and it's using the same kernel as Android itself in order to maintain performance. And it almost goes without saying that you'll really want a DeX setup, since most Linux apps are expecting a large screen, mouse and keyboard.

As it stands, you'll have to be patient. Linux on Galaxy isn't available right now -- you can sign up for alerts, but it's not ready for public consumption. Even so, this is good evidence that Samsung thinks of DeX as considerably more than a novelty feature. It may be a long, long while (if ever) before many people are using their phones as desktops, but Samsung is willing to gradually build up its ecosystem and eventually give you an incentive to take a second look.
