NASA is considering launching a living, human crew on the first integrated flight of the new Space Launch System (SLS) and Orion spacecraft currently scheduled for late 2018. While most of NASA’s crewed spacecraft have had their initial launches unmanned or with (adorable) non-human animals, this is not unheard of, as…
I rarely think of a Volkswagen GTI as a dirt monster. It’s a car that always comes up in the context of tarmac shenanigans—track days, autocrosses, and general acts of on-road hooliganism. This assumption—fed by the low-profile tires and big, pretty wheels—is wrong. It’s downright amazing on dirt.
The Ukrainian military hopes it can keep more of its soldiers alive when its new unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) hits the battlefield.
Today, traffic app Inrix published the results of a massive year-long study of traffic around the world. At the top of the list is that beacon of automotive paradise, Los Angeles.

A pop-up trunks shelf is handy for increasing your storage space and separating delicate items (like eggs or chips) from heavy ones that could damage them when shifting in the trunk, but not every car comes with a shelf. Here’s how you can make your own with just a few supplies and a little effort.
As drivers, we see a decent amount of screwups, mistakes and injustices being committed by our fellow motorists. Most of these people get away with it. Other times, things get more satisfying.
Makita’s XT218 hammer drill-driver/impact driver combo kit sells for $298 on its own, but today only, Amazon’s blowing it out for $220, plus a bonus drill bit set and bit holder, which would normally cost about $10 extra.

Sometime back in 1977, what is generally remembered to be a white Jeep Wagoneer was parked in a garage in Truro, MA, near the tip of Cape Cod. That Jeep and the garage it was in were filled and covered in sand from a shifting dune, and have remained entombed, like the great Pharaoh AMCenaten, for four decades. On…
If you were disappointed in the 2017 Detroit Auto Show, and its focus on the new Toyota Camry and promises that cars were really, really built in America, you weren’t alone.

Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.
When you really want to get out of town—and right now, who doesn’t—you could do far worse than to do so in today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe International C-120 camper. That is of course, if its price hits home.
