Humans Have Been Living In Space For 20 Years Straight

Since 2000, there have always been humans living and working on the International Space Station -- and the streak could just be getting started. National Geographic reports: On Halloween in the year 2000, a Russian Soyuz rocket launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan and flew into the history books, carrying one U.S. astronaut and two Russian cosmonauts to the nascent International Space Station (ISS). The crew arrived two days later, and the space station has been continuously occupied by humans ever since, a 20-year streak of living and working in low-Earth orbit. "There`s kids now who are in college who, for their entire lives, we`ve been living off the planet," says Kenny Todd, NASA`s deputy program manager for the ISS. "When I was a kid, that was all stuff that was just dreams." The orbiting laboratory is among the most expensive and technologically complex objects ever built: a $150-billion pressurized habitat as long as a football field, whizzing 254 miles above Earth`s surface at 17,000 miles an hour. Over the decades, 241 women and men from around the world have temporarily called the space station home, some for nearly a full year at a time. "It`s pretty crazy -- I`m surprised we haven`t, like, really seriously hurt anybody," says retired NASA astronaut Scott Kelly, who spent nearly a year on one ISS stay. "It`s really a testament to the seriousness [with which] people on the ground take this job, the attention to detail." Upward of a hundred thousand people have worked together to design, build, launch, and operate the sprawling station, says David Nixon, who worked with NASA on ISS designs in the mid-1980s. "When you compare the station to the procession of great structures and buildings built by humanity since the dawn of civilization, it`s up there with the Pyramids, the Acropolis -- all the great structures and edifices," he says. The future of the ISS remains uncertain. "The station is currently slated to run until at least 2024, and much

Saweetie Is All Three Members of Destiny`s Child in Incredible `Bootylicious` Remake Video

Halloween came early for the rapper`s fans with three times the diva as Saweetie fought for screentime with herself as Beyonce, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams! Halloween came early for Saweetie`s fans as the rapper took on one of the most iconic musical trios of all time -- and she didn`t need any help from her friends, either! Incredibly, the artist managed to capture the look, feel and attitude of all three members of Destiny`s Child for an incredibly intricate recreation of the group`s iconic "Bootylicious" video. With costuming on point from the `00s era jam, she was able to transform herself with incredible makeup work, hair styling and body language to truly embody Beyonce, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams ... all at the same time. She even recreated the original single`s album cover (offering side-by-side comparisons via her Instagram page) because if you`re gonna do a thing, do that thing all the way! "I don`t think you ready for this jelly," she teased her fans on social media before unleashing the full video clip. And she was right. We weren`t ready, and we aren`t worthy. It`s one thing to capture the look perfectly of one of those R&B legends. It`s another thing to nail the diverse looks of all three. It`s a whole different level to then recreate both the album cover and the music video as all three of them at once! It`s over. Heidi Klum can pack it in. Saweetie just won Halloween! The feat quickly got her trending across social media, as fans devoured her incredible video, loving the attention to detail and clear affection she has for these queens. And if fan adulation wasn`t enough validation, Kelly Rowland shared the video to her own Instagram , telling Saweetie, "You straight bodied this! Love you boo!" You can check out the clip and some of that fan reaction below: Got a story or tip for us? Email TooFab editors at tips@toofab.com .

YouTuber attacked by flying cheese fondue in spectacular viral video

YouTuber Tasty Hoon has gone viral with his latest mukbang video, in which his attempt at a cheese fondue went incredibly, hilariously wrong. At least it still seemed to taste good. In the eight-minute clip uploaded on Wednesday and shared over 42,000 times on Twitter , the South Korean YouTuber prepared to enjoy a delicious-looking meal of fried chicken and cheese. It`s a common food combination, and many YouTubers before him have pulled it off without incident. Tasty Hoon`s downfall, however, was that he attempted to liven up his video by putting the cheese in a fountain. It sounds like an inspired idea — cheese fondue fountains are absolutely a thing, and it would add an interesting visual element to his mise en scene. Unfortunately his cheese wasn`t quite liquid enough, and the situation quickly got messy. Read more... More about Food , Cheese , Tasty Food , Tasty Videos , and Mukbang
