15 Strange Things About Outer Space
We all had to memorize that cute mnemonic solar system device in grade school that taught us the order of the planets. Some of us even had Milky Way placemats. But for most of us, the outer space education ended there. (Sorry guys: ďStar TrekĒ and Star Wars donít count.) Maybe thatís because space feels too distant to ever be relevant to our day-to-day routines. Or maybe itís simply that the otherworldly element generally overwhelems us and bruises our intellectual egos. But maybe itís time to start paying attention to space again. Hell, Lance Bass and Paris Hilton went there. How complicated can it be?

The 10 Greatest Modern-Day Recreations Of Ancient Technologies
For some people, studying the past isn't enough. They recreate millennia-old tools, boats, and even towns to better understand how ancient peoples lived. They are called experimental archaeologists, and these are ten of their greatest triumphs. Experimental archaeology has been practiced for several decades, although it has only been accepted as a serious subfield of archaeology relatively recently. That's partially because it attracts a lot of amateur enthusiasts who are eager to contribute, even if the scientific applicability of their work is often debatable. In a sense, experimental archaeology is an attempt to reverse engineer the past, not so much to deduce exactly how things worked but to better understand how ancient peoples interacted with their environments and technologies.

5 Financial Bad Habits That Can Ruin Your Fico Credit Score
As banks shy away from making risky consumer loans, a mediocre credit history just won't cut it anymore. To get the best rates on mortgages, credit cards and auto loans, you need a killer score. Your FICO score is a numerical measure of your creditworthiness that ranges from 300 to 850. While there are a few different credit scoring systems available, it's the FICO score, created by the Fair Isaac Corporation, that most lenders look at when they check your credit. Lenders have already raised their standards by about 20 to 40 points this year, according to Barry Paperno, consumer operations manager at FICO. So while a score in the 720 to 740 range would have gotten you the best rates on a mortgage in the past, you now need a score of at least 760 to snag the best loans.
