APOLLO 18 takes you back to when Apollo 17 was launched 1972…it was the last manned mission to the moon. A year later – in December of 1973 – two American astronauts were sent to the moon on a secret mission.
Not going to lie…I’ve been waiting for this and it’s finally here. Lindsay Lohan is posing for Playboy…how much is she getting? Get this…1 million dollars! YEP! ONE MILLION DOLLARS.
