If You Look Up “Galeophobia” in the Dictionary, You’ll See These 12 Horrifying Movies

With a bunch of new shark thrillers out recently (Mandy Moore’s 47 Meters Down, Blake Lively‘s The Shallows), there’s no better time to get reacquainted with the shark horror movie genre and kick your galeophobia up a notch.

Big Data exploration in the era of Gaia

Two astronomers from the University of Groningen (The Netherlands) have developed a software library that can effortlessly generate visualisations based on hundreds of millions of data points.

Prepare Yourself For Cutest Royal Event of the Year: Prince Louis’s Christening

We’ve been waiting very impatiently to see more photos of Prince Louis, following his his birth in April. He won our hearts when we got our first glimpse of the new prince at only a few days old, and we melted over the first pictures of him with Princess Charlotte.

But since then, the new baby has been kept away from the public eye. Although we got to see adorable Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and their mischievous cousin Savannah at Trooping the Colour, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stuck to tradition and didn’t bring Prince Louis.

However, the new royal arrival is soon to have his big moment. Louis will be christened on July 9 at The Chapel Royal in St James’s Palace in London. Kensington Palace announced that he will be christened by The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby.

Though we’ve seen Louis with his sister, we’ve yet to see all three siblings together so we’re excited for an opportunity to see Prince George play big brother! Here’s hoping the occasion is just as sweet at Princess Charlotte’s chistening and that George is still just as curious.
