The Sideshow
  • A helicopter flying over a region of Sibera referred to as the “end of the world,” recorded footage of a mysterious, giant crater in the middle of the ground estimated to be 260 feet in diameter.

    At first, skeptical observers thought the images must be a fake. After all, it appears to be something out a summer science fiction blockbuster, with the giant hole appearing to descend infinitely below the surface.

    But Russian officials confirmed the crater’s existence and say they are sending a team of experts to investigate the site located in an area known as the Yamal peninsula. Scientists from the Center for the Study of the Arctic and the Cryosphere Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences plan to take samples from around the scene.

    So, what is responsible for the giant crater?

    As NASA prepares to launch a powerful new satellite into space, a team of experts from America’s space agency said it's increasingly likely that alien life will be discovered within 20 years.

    In a posting on its site, NASA said the new research tools will show that “finding life beyond Earth is within reach.”

    “I think in the next 20 years we will find out we are not alone in the universe,” NASA astronomer Kevin Hand said during a panel discussion at NASA’s headquarters in Washington, D.C.

    Hand pointed to growing evidence suggesting that some form of alien life may be in our own galactic neighborhood on Europa, one of Jupiter’s moons that is home to massive amounts of water.

    NASA announced that it plans to launch the Transiting Exoplanet Surveying Satellite and James Webb Space Telescope in 2017, which will work in conjunction with other existing technology to search for habitable, Earth-like planets within the Milky Way galaxy.

  • Sometimes one forklift just isn't enough.

    Case in point: This merry crew of movers who found a creative way to get a large crate all the way inside a truck.

    First, they used one forklift to pick up the crate and place it just inside the truck as far as the lift could reach. Next came forklift No. 2, which picked up the first forklift and pushed it (along with the crate) into the recesses of the trailer. The second forklift then helps the original return to ground level.

    Mission accomplished.

    The video, which was posted to Facebook on July 2, is making the rounds on social media and blogs. Everything worked out for the best for these workers, but keep in mind that a lot can go wrong when you're doing unconventional tricks with heavy equipment.

    Of course, forklifts aren't the only piece of construction to be used creatively. Earlier this year, YouTube user kwirls posted footage of an excavator on the back of a trailer truck that had apparently run out of gas. Workers used the
