LOOK! Up in the sky! It's a bird, it's a drone, no it's Amy Adams boobs! Plus, an abnormal look at Superman, Batman and other heroes
Plenty more Amy Adams stuff
"I grew up as a Mormon and that had more of an impact on my values than my beliefs. I'm afraid I will always feel the weight of a lie. I'm very hard on myself anyway. Religious guilt carries over too. You can't really misbehave without feeling badly about it. At least, I can't" - Amy Adams
Yes, it's Ubermensch, strange visitor from another planet, who came to Earth with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men. Ubermensch, who can change the course of mighty rivers, bend steel in his bare hands, and who, disguised as GOODSTUFF, mild-mannered blogger for a great metropolitan magazine, fights a never-ending battle for truth, justice and the retro way.

Yes, you read that right. They want you to Hack the Pentagon. The US Department of Defense has opened registration for 'Bug Bounty' Competition. The Pentagon is partnering with HackerOne to pay participants to find security flaws in its public websites. The program is set to run from April 18 to May 12 and includes $150,000 in rewards.

My obsession with the Infernal String had grown so intense
The first spacewalk showed what real heroes are made of...
Cosmonauts Alexey Leonov (Алексей Архипович Леонов)’s mission was simple: attach a camera to the airlock, document his spacewalk with a still camera on his chest, and survive. The first and last task he managed, but the middle one proved impossible. His spacesuit inflated too much to use the chest-mounted camera: he couldn’t reach the camera’s shutter-switch on his thigh.
The first spacewalk was a frightening affair. No one knew what to expect. Medical reports recorded that Leonov’s core body temperature jumped 1.8°C in just 20 minutes, pushing him dangerously close to heatstroke. He floated within his spacesuit, or as he’s more recently described it during interviews, sloshed in sweat within his spacesuit. “My suit was becoming deformed. My hands had slipped out of the gloves and my feet came out of the boots. The suit felt loose around my body. I had to do something. I couldn’t pull myself back using the cord. And what’s more, with this misshapen suit, it would be impossible to fit through the airlock.” - Alexey Leonov
He almost got the bends when he opened a valve to slowly release oxygen, depressurizing his suit until it was small enough to squeeze within the relative safety of the spacecraft.
The problems didn’t end when he was safely inside the Voskhod-2 spacecraft. Ejecting the inflatable airlock sent the spacecraft into a spin... “I keep going over the mission and I keep finding mistakes that could have been avoided. They could have led to tragedy, everything was on the edge. We were thrown to an altitude of 495 kilometers by an error, it was 200 kilometers higher than planned. And it so happened that we were flying some 5 kilometers below the radiation layer.”
Despite returning to Earth just 1 day, 2 hours and 2 minutes after launch, the bad luck continued with a harrowing end to the Voskhod-2 mission (good read). The craft bearing the world’s first spacewalker back to Earth suffered a major malfunction during reentry. The automatic re-entry system failed to fire retro-rockets, forcing the crew to switch to a manual landing procedure. Their bulky spacesuits in the cramped spacecraft meant they couldn’t move to rebalance and restore their center of mass for nearly a minute, sending them wildly off-course. Worse still, the orbital module failed to separate from the landing module, sending them tumbling. When they finally reached solid ground, instead of being greeted by jubilant officials and scientists, Leonov and Belyayev were greeted by wolves and bears when the spacecraft dropped them in the middle of a thick forest during a snowstorm.
The forest was too thick for a rescue helicopter to land. They’d opened the hatch with explosive bolts on landing, leaving the cosmonauts exposed to the storm and subzero temperatures. The electrical system malfunctioned, knocking out the heater while the fans ran at full blast. Sweat in their spacesuits threatened to freeze, forcing them to wring the suits out to prevent frostbite. A rescue party on skis finally reached them the second day...

The Gemini 7 crew leaves the suiting trailer during the prelaunch countdown. That's astronauts James A. Lovell Jr. at the front who was the pilot, and Frank Borman behind him who was the command pilot.
Remember when Blue Origin made history by vertically landing a rocket after launching it into space? Remember when they reused that same rocket and then landed it again? Well, today Jeff Bezos’ rocket company, once again, launched that very same New Shepard rocket and successfully landed it for a third time.
So freaking IMPRESSIVE! Go Blue Origin!
