That's actually very surprising to me that 1/3 of the viewers were international for the Superbowl. Are these people watching regular season games too, or they just tune in for the big game?

I know lots of Canadians watch American football. I’d also guess that there is a good number of Americans overseas that follow closely

Are Netflix shows successful? Who knows?

Netflix has become a major player in the Hollywood award season, including garnering multiple nominations for this year's Oscars. But how many people are actually watching the shows?

We don't know, because Netflix won't say.

In an industry in which TV ratings and box office stats are the lifeblood of business, the streaming entertainment titan plays by its own rules, keeping its viewer statistics out of sight and making it difficult for outsiders to measure the success of its shows.

Elon Musk: Moving to Mars will cost less than $500,000, 'maybe even below $100,000'

Very dependent on volume, but I'm confident moving to Mars (return ticket is free) will one day cost less than $500k & maybe even below $100k. Low enough that most people in advanced economies could sell their home on Earth & move to Mars if they want.

That's because they can hire real smart tax lawyers with the money they don't have to pay.
It isn't illegal to 'exploit loopholes' created by Congress... that's the purpose of tax attorneys!
They are simply using the 'loopholes' that were purposely added to Tax Law... with the encouragement (aka $) from corporate lobbying.

Police in Newfoundland, Canada, are on the hunt for thieves who broke into the premises of a vodka company and made off with 30,000 liters of iceberg water.

Staff at Iceberg Vodka arrived at work on Monday morning to find one of the 10 tanks of water in its warehouse had been drained of the precious liquid, enough to fill 150,000 vodka bottles, The Ottawa Citizen reported.

China Plans To Build Solar Power Station In Space

China is taking its renewable energy push to new heights, literally, after the country's scientists revealed plans to build and launch in orbit a space solar station that could capture the Sun’s rays 24/7, Chinese media report.

China has already started to build an early experimental space power plant in the city of Chongqing, The Sydney Morning Herald reported, citing an article in China’s Science and Technology Daily.

The space solar station, planned to orbit the Earth at 36,000 kilometers (22,370 miles) could provide “an inexhaustible source of clean energy for humans,” according to Pang Zhihao, a researcher at the China Academy of Space Technology Corporation.

Such solar power technology could supply reliable energy 99 percent of the time and have six times the intensity of the solar farms that work on the earth, the scientist says.

China will start by launching small solar stations between 2021 and 2025, while a possible next step would be a Megawatt-level station planned to be built in 2030.

The energy from the space solar station would be converted into a microwave or laser beam that would be sent to the earth.
