    This is a photo from NASA's Cassini spacecraft of an unusual object orbiting Saturn at the edge of its A ring (not to be confused with its O-ring, which is Uranus). Astronomers are speculating its a new moon forming, which is already about 1/2-mile in diameter. Me? I'm convi... / Continue →

    Not particularly great names for boobs, but what are you gonna do? Crash a rocket into them and make cheese out all the moon-milk? You bet your sweet ass I'm gonna! the top [right] moon there is Dione, and the bottom [left] one is Rhea. As Cassini flew by them, Dione was clo... / Continue →
