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.

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.
Marvel is expanding its universe into yet another realm with its latest spinoff.
