Fact of the week
Pilots and co-pilots are required to eat different meals just in case one meal causes food poisoning.
Spacecraft Cemetery
As ships, stations, and other satellites come crashing down to Earth, many end up making planet-fall at the same spot in the Pacific Ocean just south of New Zealand. For years these downed science vessels have simply sunk down to the bottom of the sea in a place now known as the Spacecraft Cemetery.
