Soyuz TMA-09MPart of the 36th full-time crew of the International Space Station lifts off from Russia’s Baikonur Cosmodrome aboard Soyuz TMA-09M. Fyodor Yurchikhin, Karen Nyberg and Luca Parmitano take up residence on the ISS for 166 days, becoming part of the Expedition 36/37 crews. Once again, a new “fast track” trajectory propels Soyuz from launch to docking at the ISS in under six hours. This crew returns to Earth in November 2013 aboard the same vehicle.

Kung Fury

Kung FuryTwo years after its successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, the ’80s action movie parody Kung Fury debuts on YouTube. Starring, written, and directed by David Sandberg, the Swedish-made movie spoofs numerous ’80s cop and action movie cliches, and features a theme song sung by David Hasselhoff (Knight Rider). The movie began filming in 2013 with a very small crew, shooting mostly against greenscreen and creating elaborate CGI backgrounds later.
