HBO GO crashes during "True Detective" finale

The much-anticipated season finale of HBO's "True Detective" aired Sunday night, and fans trying to watch the show using HBO GO were not happy. All they got was a spinning circle on a black screen. HBO GO, the cable network's online streaming service, requires a login and password, and "due to overwhelmingly popular demand," it crashed.

The first season, which starred Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, received widespread acclaim from critics. Mashable reported last week that McConaughey would not return for a potential season two, which of course made fans extremely curious about what would happen to his character, Detective Rustin "Rust" Cohle, in Sunday night's finale.

Astronaut hopefuls share thoughts on one-way trip to Mars

"Mars One" is a Netherlands-based nonprofit that wants to establish a permanent human settlement on Mars. Crews of four will depart every two years, starting in 2024 for the one-way trip. More than 200,000 people applied to participate in the project. The only requirement to apply was to be over age 18.

A new digital short called "Mars One Way" documents the thoughts, theories and fears of five hopeful astronauts -- Cody Reeder, Casey Hunter, Will Robbins, Katelyn Kane, and Ken Sullivan -- as they contemplate the reality of leaving planet Earth forever.

According to the project's website, astronaut training will begin in 2015. The participant's ability "to deal with prolonged periods of time in a remote location is the most important part of their training." Once launched, it will be a 210-day flight to Mars.
