  • Rugby World Cup 2015: How England can still qualify from Pool A and reach the quarter-finals

    After last Saturday's agonising defeat to Wales at Twickenham, England's hopes (we are told) are hanging by a thread. But it's not all doom and gloom. Fifteen is the magic number for England. That is the number of points it will take to guarantee progress from Pool A. Next up for Stuart Lancaster's men are Australia. A must-win game? Well, yes and no. Beat the Wallabies and England are all but guaranteed their place in the next round. However, a draw would still earn the men in white a stay of execution. Defeat and it's Goodnight Vienna. Here we look at four possible scenarios that would see Lancaster's men qualify as one of the top two teams in the group. First things first, here is how the q

  • Never-Before-Seen NASA Pictures Of The Apollo Missions Released (12 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.

  • Scientists predict MEGA-TSUNAMI twice the size of Big Ben to wipe out entire CITIES

    GETTY A crew of scientists recently discovered the sudden collapse of a giant volcano 73,000 years ago unleashed a wave nearly 1,000ft in height, the largest ever seen on geological record. Experts have today warned a similar catastrophic mega-tsunami could happen again. The Fogo volcano at Cape Verde, which triggered the unprecedented wave, remains one of the world's largest and most active island volcanoes. The volcano suddenly became active late last year. Seismologists said the eruption in November was one of the strongest ever recorded on the island. Experts fear another powerful eruption could send a devastating mega-tsunami across the Atlantic Ocean. Scientists have recently uncovered q
