Marvel has officially released its first trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home, and it looks even better than we expected.

More details about the expansion will be revealed during Bungie's live stream that will take place later today at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET / 5 PM UK or 2 AM AEST on August 25.

It's not long until Apple's September event when we will most likely hear about the iPhone 13. Here is everything we know about Apple's upcoming phone, according to leaks.
Say goodbye to Touch ID
Some reports have mentioned that Apple will no longer include the rumoured under-display Touch ID feature, which makes sense if Apple has decided to focus on Face ID from now on.
Way smaller notch
One of the biggest design changes that the upcoming iPhones might have is a smaller notch. Sources have claimed that iPhone 13's notch will be almost 25% smaller than the previous notches we've seen in the past. Another possibility is that Apple has removed the notch altogether, giving users an expansive and uninterrupted Retina display.
Rocket Labs is closer to Mars than ever now that its Photon spacecraft has been approved by NASA for a science mission to Mars in 2024.
What is Rocket Lab?
Rocket Lab is a space company that delivers reliable launch services, spacecraft, satellite components, and on-orbit management to make an enormous impact on the earth by making it as easy as possible to get to space.
The mission to Mars is known as the Escape and Plasma Acceleration and Dynamics Explorers, or to make things easier, ESCAPADE. During the mission, two Photon spacecraft built by Rocket Lab will orbit around Mars, to gain a better understanding of the planet's structure, composition, variability, and dynamics of Mars' hybrid magnetosphere.
After deciding to invite the hacker to join the company as "Chief Security Adviser,“ Mr. White Hat has officially returned all of the $610 million.
Largest crypto heist
Earlier this month, Poly Network, the popular decentralized finance platform, had over 600 million stolen from them by an unknown individual or group known as "Mr. White Hat." Right after the attack took place, Mr. White Hat told Polygon Network they would return the money stolen.
In a blog post released by Poly Network, Mr. White Hat has now shared a private key, giving Poly Network access to the remaining 28,953 ETH and 1,032 WBTC (about $141 million) that the hacker had stolen.
