There's an astronaut saying: In space, "there is no problem so bad that you can't make it worse." So how do you deal with the complexity, the sheer pressure, of dealing with dangerous and scary situations? Retired colonel Chris Hadfield paints a vivid portrait of how to be prepared for the worst in space (and life) -- and it starts with walking into a spider's web. Watch for a special space-y performance.

The entire world comes together to support space travel. Even though there are disputes between countries, wars, and political issues, the entire world comes together to make space travel and space exploration a true reality, and that’s what makes space the most beautiful thing that could ever exist.
Seeing so many nations involved in the recovery is really cool. Seeing all those folks wearing their respective flags working together. That’s the best part of space exploration. All of us working together for the good of mankind.
Despite my fears I swore I’d never hurt another living animal again. Not even spiders. And they scare the crap outta me. Lol. Just don’t have it in me no more to hold judgement over any living being that’s not trying to actively hurt me. Humans are way too arrogant in some ways.
I live near the edge of the world, & one day when it was raining as a kid I took out my sailboat named SS Apollo to play with it in the stream near my house. It was so awesome watching it float around by itself. My parents always warned me about keeping away from the edge which I always replied "yeah, yeah I know". This day was different though the rain flooded the leaves as light spoke through the canopy. SS Apollo was going faster than ever breaking through muddy leaves, and beaver dams alike. Little did I realize I was so close to the edge. Next thing you know I fall over the edge. If it wasnt for Batman jumping to save me I would be still falling to this day. Here is my story. #FlatEarth4Lyfe
Sechskies Eun Ji Won and rookie singers Lee Soo Hyun and Kim Eun Bi performed the third OST single titled "Love Song". The rookies, who are both training to debut in HYWY Entertainments girl group HYWY Girls, joined the veteran to sing about falling in love with an unlikely person. The rhythmic medium temp track is the perfect tune to make your spring days even brighter.
As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
