Tonight’s episode of Mythbusters, Flights of Fantasy features two very different types of flying machines: drones and a Lockheed U-2 spy plane. Show hosts Adam Savage and Jaime Hyneman took a couple of minutes to chat with us about the episode and the rest of the newly-rebooted season of the show.
As Land Rover slowly, expensively, and by some measure dramatically puts an end to its historic Defender model, bad guys around the World will have to look elsewhere for a decent, rugged, tough, go-anywhere, kill-anything, on-and-off-roader. They'll have to do so sooner than later, as photos of the latest shoot from…
On August 30th, 1984, the space shuttle Discovery launched on its first voyage to space. It wasn't the first, but over the next 27 years it became the undeniable king of NASA's shuttle program.
Land Rover put on a hell of a show unveiling the Discovery Vision Concept, raising us up a jet elevator on the USS Intrepid to bask in the SUV's glory. But after a closer look, I have to say I won't be holding my breath for its coolest features to see production any time soon.
With a minute-long video full of sci-fi style images at the Geneva Motor Show, Land Rover officially announced that it's going to mix up its nomenclature by breaking the "Discovery" SUVs into their own sub-brand, similar to what they did with "Range Rover" so many years ago.
I was about to write off this video from the Moose Off-Road Team as another overly dramatic dub-stepped fartfest but... wait... Is that a Series 1 Land Rover Discovery converted to a pickup?
Richard Rawlings and Aaron Kaufmann star on Fast N' Loud, which is an inside look at the Gas Monkey Garage and their insane creations. These are the guys that made the Ferrari F40 of your dreams, or nightmares, depending on your personal tastes. And now they're here to answer your questions.
Ever watch SPEED Channel at a time when racing isn't on? It's basically crap reality shows. And I mean real crap. Velocity, which is a channel on the TV, has a new workshop show called Fantomworks, and guess what? It's a car reality show that doesn't blow chunks.
Your never-ending thirst to figure out where in the world Amelia Earhart disappeared to has a new twist: The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR) has used sonar imaging to identify a location they believe is where Earhart's plane crashed in 1937, off of Gardner Island (now called Nikumaroro),…
In 1937, the Hindenburg airship exploded while docking at the Lakehurst Naval Air Station in New Jersey. The incident resulted in 35 fatalities. This weekend, Discovery will be trying to find out what happened.
We had a pair of scientists here answering questions about crashing a plane on purpose for Discovery's new show, Curiosity. It wasn't just about awesome explosions; we actually learned a few things about air safety.
This year, Discovery's show Curiosity is going to show something that hasn't been done in nearly 30 years: An actual plane crash test.
The arrival of Endeavour in Los Angeles last week has been described by many as the final note in the coda to NASA's shuttle program. To commemorate its end, we turned to the program's beginnings, where we discovered a stunning assortment of high resolution concept art. (If you've been hunting for a new background…
NASA is no longer flying space shuttles, but when the cameras turn away from the breathtaking 747 carrier flyovers or flotillas the real heavy lifting begins. Massive cranes have to delicately lift the shuttle from place to place.
Today, the Space Shuttle Discovery flies over the Capitol of the great nation that birthed it on the way to its very last home — the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum annex in Northern Virginia. Here's what the shuttle's final flight looked like — both through the camera lens of professional photographer…
The Discovery network, perhaps hoping to pick up eyeballs from a SPEEDTV network no longer interested in doing car-related programming, is rebranding its HD Theater channel as "Velocity" and aiming squarely at guys with short attention spans and lots of money.
Space Shuttle mission STS-133's not even back on Earth yet, but our friends at NASA have already edited together this amazing HD video of Discovery's last takeoff and orbit before retirement. It's simply amazing.
The new armored Land Rover Discovery 4 combines rugged style with bomb-resistant materials to create a luxurious ride for high-value targets like diplomats or anyone who votes Carla off another Top Chef season (I'm looking at you, Colicchio).
This video is an amazingly detailed close-up of three Space Shuttle launches tracked by multiple cameras shooting at 60,000 frames-per-second. What we view in a couple of minutes is stretched to 45 minutes of glorious high definition slow motion.
Although Matt Hughes, a spotter on the Discovery series Storm Chasers, died on May 26th, many fans only found out this week when told he suffered "a fatal injury at home." Today, we've learned it was from a suicide attempt.
