‘Kicking the tires’ is one of the most time-tested axioms to buy a used car. Then again, when you wish to buy a salvage car, this axiom might not stand true. Mostly, salvage title is given to a vehicle that has sustained damaged worth 75 percent or more of its actual value. For example, if a vehicle with a worth $10000 gets damaged in an accident or any other calamity and incurs $8000 as cost to repair, banks or insurance companies would most probably give it the title of “Salvage”.

Some can’t afford a new car, others are looking for a good bargain, and then there are those who hope to find a classic car or a high-end vehicle at rock bottom prices.

It's undoubtedly a resounding accomplishment for European Space Agency (ESA) which launched the Rosetta mission in March 2004. After blasting off from Kourou spaceport of French Guiana, Rosetta and Philae have logged at least 6 billion kms just to reach the comet.

For a time, the spacecraft had gone on standby for almost 3 years. Apparently, it had gone 500 million miles away from the sun that the solar panels can't absorb enough energy to recharge and keep things going. Fortunately, the Rosetta came out of its hibernation just this January and approached its target: comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.
