YouTuber Logan Paul posted video of a dead man who'd killed himself by hanging, and thought that was an okay thing to do. Of course, he's definitely at fault here – but so is YouTube, and it turns out the moderation team even saw, reviewed and decided to leave it up.

One of the final steps before launching a rocket is putting it vertically on its launchpad, and that's exactly what SpaceX has done with its Falcon Heavy.
