Inside the luxury prepper bunker for the rich and frightened

Inside the luxury prepper bunker for the rich and frightened

A volcanic-ash scrubber, a decontamination room, a waterslide -- when it comes to surviving a nuclear apocalypse, the Survival Condo has everything you could need, at a price.For most of my adult life, I've had an apocalypse plan.It's been straightforward. Grab my go bag, drive out to a shack in the woods, then hunker down under the floorboards eating canned food through the valve in my gas mask, waiting for the nukes to drop. But after visiting my first real nuclear bunker, my apocalypse plan has been upgraded.

Space calendar 2020: Never miss another launch again

Here's everything significant happening on the launch pad and beyond the atmosphere.Ah, 2020.

Unprecedented levels of misinformation. Unprecedented lockdowns. Unprecedented warming in the Arctic. Unprecedented economic devastation. It can be hard to find positives in a year when every month feels like a decade. But in space, there have been many admirable achievements. Unprecedented, you might say.  took...

Funerals in space: The people who send their ashes into orbit

Funerals in space: The people who send their ashes into orbit

Services such as Celestis and Aura Flights send remains to the skies in an epic final journey.Even in the freezing cold, Steven Schnider would often drag his wife Christine outside to look up at the night sky.
