5 Best Portable Grills of 2019 (Charcoal, Propane, Infrared)

Nothing says summer like cooking over an open flame. Whether it’s the salty sweetness on that lightly charred freshly grilled corn or the rich smoothness of smoked meat, summer begs us to get outside and light a fire.

Sure, true grilling enthusiasts are outdoors checking the temp on their smokers even when the wind chill is in the single digits. For most of us though, the grilling season starts on Memorial Day and we really hit our stride around the Fourth of July. After those final Labor Day hot dogs are gone, the grill goes rolling back into the garage.

We’ve looked at full-size gas grills and charcoal grills in years past, but with the summer travel season in full swing we wanted to find the best ways to get your grill on wherever you go, so we researched and tested a dozen new grills to see which can brat the best.

Space Photos of the Week: Chaotic, Gassy Mars

Happy Independence Day from space! These cosmic fireworks are located at the star system Eta Carinae. It’s hard to get bleacher seats to this particular show—it’s 7,500 light years away after all— so we brought the show to you. The gas and dust around this star was blown outwards into space after a large energetic burst around 1840. The result is this colorful sideways hourglass.

In 1994, pieces of the comet Shoemaker Levy spent a week crashing into Jupiter’s atmosphere and the collisions left dark scars. This was a very rare treat for astronomers and it changed much of their understanding of the outer solar system. Impacts like these were thought not to occur much anymore, but this comet-planet throwdown helped scientists learn more about the environment of the outer solar system. Because of this surprise event, scientists here on Earth realized they needed to have their own strategy for planetary protection.

Forty five million light years away is an object called Messier [...]  read more
