Gigglebit: Going to space or ‘space’?

Gigglebit is Siliconrepublic’s daily dose of the funny and fantastic in science and tech, to help start your day on a lighter note.

Like any sector, technology has a serious side, and it is often issues within this serious side that make headlines or that organisations need to explore for their business. Malware! Data breaches! Cloud storage! Do I really need this software? Which candidate has the best IT skills for this job? And what the heck is fog computing?

With Gigglebit, we turn the spotlight on humorous and/or amazing content about science and tech, because sometimes the lighter side should be taken seriously, too.

To celebrate India’s achievement as the first Asian country to reach our neighbouring planet, spare a thought for what could have been with another space adventure that was more expensive, yet much more scientifically inaccurate.
