Led Zeppelin has released two of its previously unheard songs to fans ahead of the reissue of its first three albums in June, according to the BBC.
The legendary rock group recorded "Keys to the Highway" in 1970, but only recently unearthed it, along with an earlier version of "Whole Lotta Love," from the archives of the band's vault. It was guitarist Jimmy Page, 70, who dusted off the recordings after combing through the archives for two years.
Page also told the BBC there was "zero" chance of a reunion, or a repeat of their London performance six years ago after the band officially split in 1980.
Astronaut Selfie Wows Twitter
An out-of-this-world selfie taken by a NASA astronaut was photobombed by everyone on the planet.
Experienced spacewalker Rick Mastracchio took a short walk outside the International Space Station Wednesday to fix a failed computer, according to the AP, and took a selfie while he was at it.
He'd basically traveled millions of miles into outer space, so why not have a few souvenirs to take home with him?

There are confusing messages coming from the roof of the world. Reports that some sherpas, or local guides, are refusing to lead expeditions to the top of Mount Everest are contradicted by others indicating not all guides have boycotted the climbing season, according to NPR.
Tempers remains hot after 13 sherpas were killed by Everest's deadliest avalanche last week. Another three remain missing and are presumed dead.
The incident exposed the widespread discontent among the sherpas' colleagues, who Wednesday packed and left the base camp over pay, treatment and benefits, the AP reported.
