Yvette Vickers R.I.P. – Bye bye of the 50ft Woman


Yvette Vickers, Playboy Playmate des Monats Juli 1959 (ihre Doppelseite wurde fotografiert von niemand anderes als Russ Meyer) und Cineasten vor allem als die Dame bekannt, die in „Attack of the 50ft Woman“ eine Kleinstadt plattmachte, wurde vergangene Woche von einer Nachbarin tot in ihrem Haus aufgefunden. Die Leiche war bereits mumifiziert, es wird angenommen, dass sie bereits seit vor einem Jahr starb. Traurige Geschichte. Bye bye, Yvette.

Yvette Vickers, an early Playboy playmate whose credits as a B-movie actress included such cult films as “Attack of the 50-Foot Woman” and “Attack of the Giant Leeches,” was found dead last week at her Benedict Canyon home. Her body appears to have gone undiscovered for months, police said.

Vickers, 82, had not been seen for a long time. A neighbor discovered her body in an upstairs room of her Westwanda Drive home on April 27. Its mummified state suggests she could have been dead for close to a year, police said.

The official cause of death will by determined by the Los Angeles county coroner’s office, but police said they saw no sign of foul play.

    “Die Leiche war bereits mumifiziert, es wird angenommen, dass sie bereits seit vor einem Jahr starb” sollte vielleicht noch kurz überarbeitet werden.

    Ansonsten: R.I.P. 50 ft. Woman. Traurige Sache, vor allem wenn auf diese Weise geschieht.

    Allein und von niemanden vermisst abtreten. Trauriger gehts nimmer.

    Wem kann man denn da sein Mitleid ausdrücken? Verwandte oder Bekannte haben wohl kein Interesse an ihr gehabt.

    Aber mal off topic: “50 Feet” sind so ca. 15 Meter also drei US-Car-Fahrzeuglängen.
    Wie groß ist die Frau auf dem Plakat? 10-12 Fahrzeuglängen?

    Putting The Cost Of The ESA’s Rosetta Mission In Perspective

    "So what do we get for our €1.4bn? Rosetta is both an astounding feat of engineering (catapulting a tonne of spacecraft across millions of kilometres of space and ending up in orbit around a comet just 4 km across) and an extraordinary opportunity for science (allowing us to examine the surface of a lump of rock and ice which dates from when the Solar System formed).

    Like a lot of blue-skies science, it’s very hard to put a value on the mission. First, there are the immediate spin-offs like engineering know-how; then, the knowledge accrued, which could inform our understanding of our cosmic origins, amongst other things; and finally, the inspirational value of this audacious feat in which we can all share, including the next generation of scientists.

    Whilst those things are hard to price precisely, in common with other blue-skies scientific projects, Rosetta is cheap. At €1.4bn, developing, building, launching and learning from the mission will cost about the same as 4.2 Airbus A380s—pretty impressive when you consider that it’s an entirely bespoke robotic spacecraft, not a production airliner. On a more everyday scale, it’s cost European citizens somewhere around twenty Euro cents per person per year since the project began in 1996.

    Rosetta has already sent us some stunning images of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko and today’s landing will, with any luck, provide us with our first close-up glimpse of the chaotic surface of this dirty snowball. If you’re a sci-fi fan, then, you might consider the mission to have been worth its price tag just for the pictures. The total cost for the Rosetta mission is about €3.50 per person in Europe; based on the average cinema ticket price in the UK (€8.50), it has cost less than half of what it will cost for you to go to see Interstellar.”
