Google has shared hundreds of beautiful wallpapers through its Earth View collection for years now. These images show off stunning sights from satellites, providing an almost surreal birds-eye view of the planet's landscapes and oceans. Today, the company added over 1,000 images to that gallery, bringing the total to over 2,500. The company says the new Earth View images are optimized for today's screens, "featuring brighter colors, sharper images, and resolutions up to 4K."

US troops in northeast Syria have cut off Russian patrols nearly a dozen times and forced them to turn back or take roundabout routes to reach their destinations. These cutoffs have clustered along two roads leading to American military positions, delineating zones of US influence, including critical infrastructure, four months after Trump's withdrawal decision.

Alberta is a tyrannosaur graveyard. There rest great carnivores of the Cretaceous, such as Albertosaurus, Gorgosaurus, Daspletosaurus and, of course, the Tyrannosaurus Rex (T-Rex). Now, palaeontologists in the province have announced the discovery of Canada's oldest known tyrannosaur: Thanatotheristes degrootorum, or "the Reaper of Death". With its razor-sharp teeth and formidable two-tonne frame, the newly discovered species terrorised the region some 79.5 million years ago.
