On the day Disney+ launched, more than 10 million subscribers signed up thanks to its affordable price and its huge content throughout the Disney library. Old classics, as well as Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and even Fox content like The Simpsons are part of their entertainment catalog.

The service has been made available for users in the United States, Canada, and the Netherlands, with Australia, New Zealand and Puerto Rico following soon as well. Other significant markets like the UK, France, Spain, Italy, Germany and Ireland will have to wait until the end of March 2020 to enjoy the new streaming platform.

Since one of Disney’s objectives is to compete against industry-giant Netflix, the service will focus on creating high quality shows in hopes to create a following on some of their originals. The most viewed show as of now is ‘The Mandalorian’, focusing on a bounty hunter after the event of Star Wars’ Return of the Jedi. Other hits include the spinoff show ‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series’, and documentary series ‘The World According to Jeff Goldblum’ where the actor explores the world as part of National Geographic partnership with Disney.

Moving forward, it will be amusing to see what changes and additions Disney+ will implement in the coming year, as it prepares to expand to the rest of the world and to take the streaming industry’s crown. 2020 already sounds Disney-citing!

Elon Musk and his company SpaceX are currently constructing a satellite constellation to provide satellite internet access named ‘Starlink’. The constellation will be comprised of thousands of small satellites that work in combination with ground transceivers.

To meet the booming, rapidly evolving broadband demand from around the world, SpaceX is planning to change the terrestrial fiber and cable platforms with mobile broadband networks and space-based systems like Starlink. In the US, more than 39% of Americans living in rural areas are lacking access to advanced telecommunications capabilities, and around 57% of the world’s population are offline for a wide range of reasons. This project is looking to provide more and more people the tools to compete in the 21st century economy.

This news has come with different responses from the scientific community. While most agree that global internet service is a worthy initiative, some astronomers worry that the orbiting link will affect the view of the galaxy and even threaten stargazing as a whole. Besides the satellites being too bright as they reflect sunlight back to earth, they could now triple the number of satellites currently in orbit, with the number growing larger if other companies like Amazon or Telesat get to space.

Scientists agree that the risks of having too many satellites in the sky is too big for one company to be making all the decisions around it. What’s your scientific take on it??

2019 has been an amazing year in terms of quality films and breathtaking acting performances. With the year coming soon to a close, let’s take a look to the best and most thrilling movies that inspired thousands of people and broke box office records:

Ford vs Ferrari: The Disney’s bet to win an Oscar in a movie this year comes in form of the story between Ford and Ferrari in the late ‘60s, as they raced to build a car to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans race. Featuring Matt Damon and Christian Bale as racers Carroll Shelby and Ken Miles, respectively.

Avengers: Endgame: The closing chapter of Phase 3 became the highest grossing movie of all time, and features action-packed scenes and a memorable ending to the movie as the Avengers restore the damage that Thanos created from the previous movie: Infinity War.

Midsommar: This horror film is like no other before, as it focuses on light - rather than darkness - to create a Terrifying atmosphere for the viewers. Set in a Swedish commune, a group of college students get involved with a scary cult, in a place surrounded by death, cult rites and sacrifices.

Joker: Joaquin Phoenix’ flawless performance is a chilling portrayal of one of Hollywood’s most recognized villains. The tragic and shocking story of how Arthur Fleck, a mentally ill stand-up comedian disregarded by society that ultimately inspires an uprising of crime in Gotham.

The Irishman: Netflix’ collaboration between Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro is a gangster movie reminiscent of Goodfellas or Taxi Driver. Following a truck driver-turned-hit man over the span of 40 years, de-aging technology help make Robert De Niro as a young man in this three-and-a-half-hour film.
