If you do anything for 42 years, you're going to have some ups and downs. Over the 42 seasons of Saturday Night Live, the cast, crew, and writers have brought us skits that became part of the cultural lexicon — and a few seasons where the show probably should have been canceled. But there are a few key parts to making a good skit and Karsten Runquist has identified three of them that go a long way toward making us laugh.
Keep the wheel straight and smash the throttle — driving a car on a top speed run seems pretty straightforward. But it isn't. In 1997, Royal Air Force pilot Andy Green piloted the Thrust SSC into the record books, becoming the first vehicle to break the sound barrier on land. Andy talks about what it takes to drive a car powered by two jet engines across the desert floor at over 763 MPH.
Geodesic domes are incredibly strong for their weight, making them an ideal shape for a tent. Our stealth version of Heimplanet's original tent retains all the features that made it an icon. Thanks to double-layer airbeams, all setup consists of is rolling out the tent, closing the valves, and using the included pump to inflate the entire structure. The diamond-like grid provides support for the polyester ripstop flysheet and ripstop nylon inner tent, while a vestibule keeps the entrance dry and a detachable gear loft offers added storage. A multi-chamber safety system allows compromised pieces of the airframe to be isolated and repaired or replaced, and the geodesic design offers an additional benefit: the ability to hold strong in high winds.

In 1958, the United States launched the first solar-powered satellite, Vanguard 1, into orbit. Over 2,200 days later, it's still in orbit — just one of millions of pieces of debris orbiting the Earth. As space around the planet becomes more crowded with the leftovers of human spaceflight, it poses a grave danger to the future of space exploration.
