The lost city of Atlantis has been discovered in the Bahamas, the Greek Islands, Cuba, and even Japan if every claim was to be believed.
First described by the ancient Greek historian Plato in 360 B.C., the mythological island was supposedly a great naval power before sinking into the sea over 10,000 years ago in a catastrophic event.
Archaeologists debate the actual historical existence of the island as well as its most plausible location if it ever actually existed among the many sunken ruins discovered around the world. But even without definitive proof, Atlantis continues to engage the popular imagination like few other archaeological mysteries out there.
Sprucing up an otherwise docile English field, the prehistoric monument commonly known as Stonehenge is one of the world’s most famous landmarks.
The ring of megalithic…

Technology has never been more influential than it is today. Many people find themselves in a situation where they feel like they cannot exist without technology. How many of us have a work colleague or a teenage child who appear on the verge of a nervous breakdown whenever they realize they need to spend some time without their iPhone? Throw tablet devices into the mix and pair it with the almost blanket 24/7/365 internet coverage that we enjoy, and we start to understand just how important technology is, and why people are so reliant upon it.
Often, we laugh at individuals who get themselves in this position…

On April 12, 1961 – a mere five decades ago – Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin was launched aboard his Vostok-1 spacecraft, becoming the first human in space. Alone, he was the first person ever to look down upon our planet from orbit. He was only 28 years old.
Today the world celebrates the 50th anniversary of this historic event, the point in time when mankind broke free of Earth’s atmosphere and officially became a spacefaring species. Many have followed the path into space, but Yuri was the first. His actions transcended whatever political climate may have existed at the time or come afterward…in effect Yuri was, during his his brief time in space, all of us.
To commemorate this, film production company The Attic Room teamed up with the European Space Agency, NASA and YouTube to produce and distribute a movie filmed from orbit aboard the International Space Station. The…

We must know more about NASA … A film is good to see on this topic. We all want to know about the intricacies of this great organisation. I am not from the US, but I love NASA and its endeavors. Thanks.
“We are making this film to help push the people of the world and the decision makers that govern them to look up at the stars instead of at our feet.”
This weekend, millions of people across the U.S. will sit in front of their TVs to eagerly watch two professional football teams fight over the title of Super Bowl XLIX champions. But how many people will be thinking about another fight that’s going on – the fight for funding to take our nation’s space program – and the future of humanity – boldly into the “final frontier?”
Most definitely not nearly as many, and that’s sad.
Fight for Space, a project by documentary filmmaker Paul Hildebrandt, is attempting to change that by bringing awareness of the challenges faced by NASA – both past and present – to our representatives in Congress, citizens of our country, and people around the world…
