The Expendables 3 - Expendables Wiki The Expendables 3 is an upcoming action film directed by Patrick Hughes and is a sequel to the 2012 film, The Expendables 2 and it is the third and final installment of the trilogy. In March 2012, Couture stated that a third installment of The Expendables could enter production in late 2012, following the release of The Expendables 2.[94] In April 2012, Steven Seagal said that he had been offered a role in a third film.[95] Producer Avi Lerner also stated that the producers were intending to bring back the series' current stars, attempting to have Rourke reprise his role, had already approached Clint Eastwood about a role, and had plans to pursue Harrison Ford and to approach Wesley Snipes following his release from prison.[96] Stallone said: "We are thinking about different concepts – the third one is the hardest. The second is the natural progression. The third, that’s when the air gets rare.

Five Visualizations to Grasp the Scale of the Universe by Maria Popova What coffee beans, dinosaurs and lakeside picnics have to do with Isaac Asimov and formalized figments. Since yesterday was 10.10.10, we’ve decided to celebrate this cosmic alignment of numerical symmetry by illuminating the measurements of magnitude. Today, we are taking five different looks at one of the most difficult concepts for the human brain to quantify and understand: The size and scale of the universe. What better way to celebrate 10.10.10 than with Charles and Ray Eames’ iconic Powers of Ten film, an adventure in magnitudes circa 1977? The film opens with a lakeside picnic in Chicago and branches outward into the universe, jumping to a vantage point ten times further out every ten seconds until our galaxy becomes a mere speck of light among many, then speed-zooms back to Earth, magnifying the view tenfold every ten seconds.

Asteroid and Comet Watch Average distance between Earth and the moon is about 239,000 miles (385,000 kilometers). The Asteroid Watch Widget tracks asteroids and comets that will make relatively close approaches to Earth. The Widget displays the date of closest approach, approximate object diameter, relative size and distance from Earth for each encounter. The object's name is displayed by hovering over its encounter date. Clicking on the encounter date will display a Web page with details about that object. The Widget displays the next five Earth approaches to within 4.6 million miles (7.5 million kilometers or 19.5 times the distance to the moon); an object larger than about 150 meters that can approach the Earth to within this distance is termed a potentially hazardous object.

Over the past 25 years, MRI has been responsible for the design and development of the Desert Eagle pistol. The design was refined and the actual pistols were manufactured by Israel Military Industries until 1995, when MRI shifted the manufacturing contract to Saco Defense in Saco, Maine. In 1998, MRI moved manufacturing back to IMI, which later reorganized under the name Israel Weapon Industries. Both Saco and IMI/IWI were strictly contractors: all of the intellectual property, including patents, copyrights and trademarks, are the property of Magnum Research.

s New Orion Spacecraft Completes First Spaceflight Test Major Milestone on Agency's Journey to Mars [image-50] NASA marked a major milestone Friday on its journey to Mars as the Orion spacecraft completed its first voyage to space, traveling farther than any spacecraft designed for astronauts has been in more than 40 years. “Today’s flight test of Orion is a huge step for NASA and a really critical part of our work to pioneer deep space on our Journey to Mars,” said NASA Administrator Charles Bolden. “The teams did a tremendous job putting Orion through its paces in the real environment it will endure as we push the boundary of human exploration in the coming years.”

Top 10 Nostradamus Predictions Michel de Nostredame (aka Nostradamus) was a 16th-century French "seer." We don't have many seers these days. Nostradamus studied astrology and various "occult" sciences and used those to predict the future. He's best known for The Prophecies, a collection of French quatrains published in 1555. So are these prophecies worthy predictions of the future or merely vague observations retrofitted to match past events? New- Google Timelapse Allows You to Visually Track The Earth's Changes over The Last 3 Decades December 2, 2016 Google has recently released a new update to its popular Earth Timelapse allowing users to visually track geographical changes of the planet from the year 1984 to 2016. Using video footage, users are able to see how the Earth has changed over the past three decades. Drawing on Earth Engine’s cloud-computing capabilities, this project makes use of over 5 million high definition satellite images acquired by five different satellites. Earth Timelapse allows you to search, pan and zoom around various regions of the world.
