  • NASA releases never-before-seen pics of the Apollo Missions (23 photos)

    After decades hidden in archives, thousands of pictures of the Apollo space missions have now been publically released online. Some 13,000 NASA images were put onto the Project Apollo Archive Flickr page, all taken by astronauts on the manned Apollo missions between 1961 and 1972 using Hasselbald cameras. Epic views of earth from space, retro-looking snaps of the rocket equipment and, of course, man’s very first steps onto the surface of the moon are captured in the series. Unsurprisingly in such an extensive collection, there are also plenty of blurry snaps, fingers over lenses and dark smudges where someone forgot to switch on the flash. In addition, the astronauts chose to capture some of the more mundane aspects of life aboard a spaceship, photographing each other shaving, napping, eating meals and brushing their teeth.

  • Sainsbury's uses legal loophole to keep part of new 5p 'charity' charge for plastic bags

    One of Britain's biggest supermarkets is using a loophole in the rules around the new 5p plastic bag charge to cut its costs and give less to charity than its rivals. This week shops in England were banned from handing out free plastic bags to customers. Under new laws they must charge at least 5p for each "single-use" bag and give the after-tax proceeds to charity. Most supermarkets are offering the same flimsy bags as before. To offer better value for money, Sainsbury's has removed all its old plastic bags from stores and replaced them with sturdier, reusable carriers for 5p, with free replacements when they wear out. But, crucially, such bags fall outside the new law, leaving the company under q
