50 Years Ago, NASA Put a Car on the Moon

The lunar rovers of Apollo 15, 16 and 17 parked American automotive culture on the lunar surface, and expanded the scientific range of the missions' astronaut explorers. From a report: Dave Scott was not about to pass by an interesting rock without stopping. It was July 31, 1971, and he and Jim Irwin, his fellow Apollo 15 astronaut, were the first people to drive on the moon. After a 6-hour inaugural jaunt in the new lunar rover, the two were heading back to their lander, the Falcon, when Mr. Sc...

There are very solid engineering reasons why Jeff Bezos's rocket looks exactly like, you know, that.

A view of Blue Origin's New Shepard rocket. Blue Origin Billionaire Jeff Bezos went to the edge of space on Tuesday in Blue Origin's New Shepard rocket. The suborbital rocket has a domed, wide capsule on top for passengers - giving it a phallic profile. New Shepard's characteristic design makes it more stable and optimizes cabin space, experts said.

How Star Tours saved Disneyland at a low point in the park’s history

Disneyland was struggling for new ride ideas in the 1980s after a slate of mediocre Disney films when Walt Disney Imagineering turned to Star Wars creator George Lucas for a boost of creative inspiration that would eventually lead to Star Tours coming to Tomorrowland. “I wanted to have an involvement in Tomorrowland,” Lucas said in a new Disney+ series. “I thought that was a portion of the park that had always been a little less than it could have been.” It certainly helped Lucas was a lifelong ...

What Exactly is Mysterious MCU Character Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine Doing? Kevin Feige Has a Hint

This post contains spoilers for Black Widow and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. A new character is cementing her place in the MCU, and with her comes a barrage of questions. Who is Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus)? How does she know so much? What is she up to? And how is she allowed to own an iPad? Obviously, these are all equally important questions and, as he tends to do, MCU mastermind Kevin Feige has begun vaguely hinting at some answers. Feige recently con...

Even Don Cheadle Thinks His Emmy Nomination For ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ is Ludicrous

Don Cheadle has delivered plenty of outstanding performances over the course of his three-decade career, and even when he shows up in something that isn’t great, he’s a reliable presence and frequently elevates the projects he’s in. But even as a fan of the actor’s work (seek him out in No Sudden Move, which is currently on HBO Max), it’s just plain ridiculous that Cheadle received an Emmy nomination for his two-minute cameo in Marvel Studios’ The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. And I’m far from...

Black Widow Was Meant to Set Up a Falcon and Winter Soldier Connection

Marvel gets a lot of credit—perhaps too much credit—for the idea that its cinematic universe is meticulously laid out years in advance, a grand plan that we and it alike are pulled along with as if by inevitability more so than the planning power of a studio worth billions of dollars. But given the last 18 months and…Read more...

Though the character created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby in 1941 may have been a way to capitalize on WWII patriotism, it has since been used to ask questions about what it really means to be patriotic and how America’s ideals and its reality may conflict.

VOTD: How ‘The Falcon and The Winter Soldier’ Should Have Ended

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier already has a solid ending that not only gives us a worthy new Captain America in Sam Wilson, but it also lays the groundwork for some intriguing elements to come with John Walker, Sharon Carter, and Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine. But a new edition of How It Should Have Ended imagines a couple other paths the series could have taken, including one that brings Captain America back from that moon base at the perfect time.
