What the SpaceX Falcon 9 Launch Success Means to America

Yesterday morning, SpaceX successfully launched their Falcon 9 rocket and accompanying Dragon capsule into orbit, and safely brought Dragon back home. This was COTS Demonstration I, which means they are proving to NASA that they are capable of launching and maneuvering cargo (and eventually astronauts) into orbit and to the International Space Station.

The Undoing of Lindsay Lohan

Throughout the early stages of her blossoming film career, Lindsay Lohan lived a relatively normal and peaceful Hollywood teenage life, if such a thing exists. However, in 2005, something happened. She began making headlines and was continually involved in negative news articles. After arduous thought, I have finally put a finger on what happened to cause this shift in behavior. I have found that Lohan was confronted by a force in her life that shook …
