YouTube has fast become a place where people get their news, and in that vein, we’re delighted to join the YouTube Space Lab channel with our new online series, The Countdown.

Every other Thursday, host and self-proclaimed web nerd Dave Mosher presents the five coolest things happening in space, astronomy and physics. Our first episode debuted July 26 and features a solution to a physics mystery related to the Pioneer spacecraft, contest-winning satellite imagery and seven minutes of terror on Mars.

Putting everything together behind-the-scenes are Scientific American video editor and producer Eric Olson and space/physics editor John Matson, along with YouTube producer Jake Roper.

Check out The Countdown videos at YouTube here.

    Burberry USA, the German people were very fond of soccer, even though sports were not popular at all. Their love to football was out of our imagination. Consequently, a good pair of soccer shoes became almost all the German people’s dreams. They had a keen business sense even when they were only children, and the Dassler brothers began to study again in the factory and design football shoes at once. The very simple design may seem outdated today, but at the time they were totally new and advanced design. Several years later, the brothers built a bigger shoes factory and began to sell to the whole Germany. The new factory was named as Adidas Factory which was the predecessor of today’s famous Adidas.
