    This is the space shuttle replica that a 60-something Chinese farmer built on the roof of his home in the Guangdong province. Obviously, all the neighbors are jealous. And can you blame them? Who doesn't want a spaceship replica on top of their house? Nobody I want to be fr... / Continue →

    Seen here in an artist's rendition of what it might look like taking off while a golfer simultaneously shoots their way out of a sand trap, the Falcon Heavy (please note: it's never a good idea to include 'heavy', 'cumbersome', 'lumbering', or 'might explode' in the name of a r... / Continue →

    Did I mention it's only 127 light-years away? Start packing the rocketship! Haha, not you. You're not coming. Astronomers have discovered a planetary system containing at least five planets that orbit a star called HD 10180, which is much like our own Sun. Christophe Lo... / Continue →

    This is a video of a couple jackasses shooting a model rocket made of meat. It was an interesting experiment from a purely scientific standpoint, but a terrible waste of resources. It does get funny at the end though because SPOILER ALERT: the rocket crashes through the kitch... / Continue →

    That's right, would-be astronauts, you can forget about NASA ever sending you to the moon strapped to a giant rocket, cause that shit ain't happening. Your only chance now is lassoing a moonicorn and barebacking that bitch to outerspace. Obama wants to end NASA's moon program... / Continue →

    In the third installment of the Symphony of Science series comes 'Our Place In The Cosmos', a quartet of interplanetary song by Carl Sagan, Richard Dawkins, Michio Kaku and Robert Jastrow. This is definitely the "Barry White" song of the series so far, and there is no doubt in... / Continue →

    NASA, an organization that has actually convinced itself they put men on the moon despite it being all staged in Hollywood, is now testing a new rocket. The phallic booster is the first new design to come out of agency since 1981. Which, incidentally, is the year I was born. ... / Continue →

    So apparently one of Jupiter's moons, Europa, might have enough oxygen to support life. Well that's cool BECAUSE I'M TOTALLY MOVING THERE. Who's with me? You better shower! The global ocean on Jupiter's moon Europa contains about twice the liquid water of all the Earth's oc... / Continue →

    This is a photo of the world's tallest rocket blasting off for outerspace without me. Damnit, I packed a sack lunch and everything! HOLLER AT YOUR BOY, NASA. Come on -- I'll bring you back an alien corpse! You're looking at the 253.2-foot Delta 4-Heavy lifting off from laun... / Continue →

    Michael Jackson, donning his last piece of flair (possibly a Bedazzled glove), will be buried in a 14-karat gold coffin only befitting of a king (of pop. Alternatively, Neverland). The $25,000 container from Batesville Casket Company ("because every family deserves a Batesvil... / Continue →

    Allegedly Kimberley Vlaminck, 18, went into a tattoo parlor and requested three stars on the left side of her face by her eye. However, she claims she fell asleep during the procedure and woke up with 56. I suspect she's lying. Rouslan, who runs the tattoo parlour called The... / Continue →

    This is the $29 Haynes Owners' Workshop Manual for all the vehicles and equipment used during the Apollo 11 mission to the moon. I'm still gonna pick up a copy, despite deciding to build my own rocketship for scratch (I'm hoping for pointers on seducing moon-women). On 20 J... / Continue →

    We've already seen God's hand, God's eye and the Eye of Sauron, so why not another cosmic ball of eye? This here is the latest in a batch of images from the Hubble Space Bubblescope of planetary nebula Knockout 4-55. Enter Punch-Out tie-in here. I AM THE L337 BLOGGAR! Plane... / Continue →

    Paragon Space Development Corporation, a NASA subcontractor, has decided to take a stab at growing plants in a specially designed greenhouse on the moon. THE MOON! The attempt will take place in 2012, so we may or may not get to see if it works before the world ends. In ord... / Continue →

    Earth Day Fools! Oh, wait, no. Apparently this is real, and only 20.5 light-years away! Ladies and gentlemen -- start your rocket engines. PSSSSHOOOOOOOOW! PEW PEW. The Gliese 581 planetary system now has four known planets, with masses of about 1.9 (planet e, left in the... / Continue →

    I did absolutely zero research to determine if this 36-foot tall, 1,600lb model rocket built by Steve Eves is, in fact, the largest ever, but that's only because I've already won numerous prizes for investigative journalism and figured I'd give somebody else a chance. I jest -... / Continue →

    Saturn, the second largest moon-whore in the solar system (behind Jupiter), has been caught hiding another trick in one of it's outer rings. What a slut! The discovery of what appeared to astronomers as a faint, moving pinprick of light, was announced by the International Ast... / Continue →

    The $25 Rocket Launcher Alarm Clock is phallic as hell and I want one really badly. When it's time to wake up the rocket ship blasts off -- and you have to retrieve said rocket and replace it on the base for the beeping to stop. Alternatively, you can break the base. And whi... / Continue →

    You remember when you were a kid and wanted to be an astronaut? Well I still do. And I'm building my own rocketship (screw you NASA -- rules and regulate this!). Originally I was gonna blast the eff off in a pair of gym shorts and novelty t-shirt, but now I'm thinking I migh... / Continue →

    Not cool with viewing space from the cramped confines of a tiny dildo? Well how about the 360-degree views offered from the "Fishbowl Spaceship". The company, founded by iD software (Doom, Quake) chief John Carmack, plans to build this far-fetched space bubble next year, ai... / Continue →
