Last Show Recap

First half: Before Frank Alisio Juarez III (aka Frank Shamrock) was known as ‘’The Legend"—winning almost every mixed martial arts (MMA) title in existence—he endured a childhood marred with abuse that led to a troubled young adulthood. He joined George Knapp to discuss how this created a fighter who would go on to dominate the sport for the next two decades.

Second half: Beatles expert, Chuck Gunderson, discussed the 50th Anniversary of the ground breaking album Revolver and the group's three world tours from 1964 to 1966. Gunderson recalled the controversy surrounding John Lennon's "Bigger than Jesus" statement and how this affected their troubled 1966 world tour.

Space Elevator Competition

Space Elevator Competition

12 teams presented their space elevator concepts this weekend at NASA's Ames Research Center in Mountain View, CA. Though the teams were only showing off 200 ft. high demos, the ultimate goal is to create a lightweight nanotube tether that will stretch more than 62,000 miles into space, carrying both people and cargo. Sponsored by the Spaceward Foundation (Elevator2010.org(1)), modest cash prizes are being given to the winners of beam and tether challenges. Read more at MSNBC.com(2).
