You can now explore some NSW National Parks from the comfort of your PC desk, thanks to a partnership with Google. NSW National Parks is the first Australian organisation to partner with Google as part of the Trekker Loan Program. Using a Google Street View trekker, we've visited 225 attractions and captured over 1100km of imagery.

Or, send your name to Mars. Mars enthusiasts around the world can participate in NASA’s journey to Mars by adding their names to a silicon microchip headed to the Red Planet aboard NASA's InSight Mars lander, scheduled to launch next year.

OCClub report on the GeForce GTX 950 and in particular the GameStream feature. But the real star is that Stream option. Clicking on the Stream option accesses the new GameStream Co-Op feature, allowing users to invite a friend to join their game by sending an email invite or copying/pasting an invite URL. Your friend doesn't have to download Steam or the game; he or she simply has to use the Chrome web browser to launch the link. Your friend can then watch you play, take over the controls, or even join you if the game supports multi-controller play; all with integrated voice chat.

If you've bought an Intel 6600K or 6700K CPU (or are planning to buy one soon), you could be in the running to win a 1.2TB Intel 750 crazy-fast PCIe SSD. THERE ARE THREE TO WIN! WINNERS WILL BE DRAWN ON THE 16th OF OCTOBER 2015, THE 16TH OF NOVEMBER 2015 AND THE 16TH OF DECEMBER 2015, AND ANNOUNCED HERE THE FOLLOWING WEEKDAY.
