The ice bucket challenge's phenomenal success is making other charitable organizations rethink how they connect with a younger generation of potential donors. Since the ALS Association began tracking the campaign's progress on July 29, it has raised more than $53.3 million from 1.1 million new donors in what is one of the most viral philanthropic social media campaigns in history. Thousands of people, including celebrities like Taylor Swift and Oprah Winfrey, have posted videos of themselves getting buckets of ice water dumped over their heads and challenging others to do the same — or donate money to The ALS Association, which raises money for Lou Gehrig's disease research and assistance.
The first development test series has been completed for NASA's next generation Space Launch System. The RS-25 engines which will power missions deeper into space completed their first phase of trials at the Stennis Space Center in Mississippi. The test series wrapped up with a seventh hot fire burn of the engines fixed within the A-1 Test Stand. Engineers got to conduct a 535-second burn to collect valuable data on the RS-25's performance. In particular the series of tests focused on gauging the engine's controller, or "brain." The RS-25 engines are former space shuttle main engines operating at higher thrust levels which the SLS requires.
Marking 20 years since viewers sat around their televisions to watch the verdict of the “trial of the century,” LMN and A&E will pair up to revisit the criminal and civil trials against O.J. Simpson in two event specials. The networks will air two consecutive documentaries about the high-profile trial: “The Secret Tapes of the O.J. Case: The Untold Story” and “O.J. Speaks: The Hidden Tapes.
Donald Trump had to do a bit of damage control on Thursday after repeatedly dropping Carl Icahn's name in a campaign speech and then saying most good business negotiators were "vicious, horrible, miserable human beings." After that conversation, Trump told Reuters in a phone interview that he did not mean to include Icahn in his characterization. He said he preferred effective dealmakers like Icahn to "nice" people who, he said, were powerless in their roles. Trump quickly added: "The people I'm talking about are not nice people. In about 2 percent of the cases they're actually nice people."
Buzz Aldrin is teaming up with Florida Institute of Technology to develop “a master plan” for colonizing Mars within 25 years. The second man to walk on the moon took part in a signing ceremony Thursday at the university, less than an hour’s drive from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. The Buzz Aldrin Space Institute is set to open this fall. The 85-year-old Aldrin, who followed Neil Armstrong onto the moon’s surface on 20 July 1969, will serve as a research professor of aeronautics as well as a senior faculty adviser for the institute. He said he hopes his “master plan” is accepted by NASA and the country, with international input. NASA already is working on the spacecraft and rockets to get astronauts to Mars by the mid-2030s.
The day that Lisbeth Salander fans have been waiting for is here. The Girl in the Spider's Web, the fourth book in the much-loved millennium series, just hit shelves. And while tons of fans are rejoicing over the return of Lisbeth and her weirdo accomplice Mikael Blomkvist, the book isn't without its fair share of controversy. Not everybody is as happy about the book's release—there's a sizable contingent who are lashing out against the publisher and the author because they think that the series never should have continued after Larsson's death.
