15 Space Mission Disasters
The cost of the Apollo program, which supposedly landed a man on the moon, was estimated (by NASA) to cost $170 billion (adjusted for inflation.) Space exploration uses the brightest minds and the latest equipment, we have been told, which is why it is so expensive. In the end, landing a man on the moon or a rover on Mars supposedly makes the whole project worth it. But what about the failed space missions? How much money goes into those projects? And who is held accountable when they fail? There have been so many of them in the past fifty years — these questions are certainly worth asking.

10 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Mad Max
The grandaddy of all dystopian action extravaganzas, Mad Max burst into cinemas in 1979 in all of its super-charged, leather-clad glory, changing genre cinema forever. Influenced by the 1973 oil crisis that turned many motorists all over the globe to violence, Mad Max depicted a desolate world with long stretches of highways interrupted only by derelict signs of civilization. The remnants of a once strong police force, the Main Force Patrol do their best to maintain law while wild gangs of outlaw bikers loot, rape, and siphon their way through society. One of these officers, Max Rockatansky, looses faith in the justice after his best friend, wife, and infant son fall victim to the nastiest gang of them all, led by the Genghis Khan of the wasteland, the Toecutter. Shot over 12 weeks in and around Melbourne with a humble budget of $350,000 (Australian), the making of Mad Max was sometimes just as chaotic and dangerous as the world depicted in the film.
