    This is a video of Commander Chris Hadfield performing a revised version of David Bowie's iconic 'Space Oddity' while floating around the International Space Station. It's worth a watch, and I'm half surprised Chris pursued a career in space exploration instead of music. Also... / Continue →

    This is a series of videos of the Areola Borealis or whatever as seen from the International Space Station. JUST LIKE THE TITLE SAID. Because, if there's one thing I'm not, it's a liar. If there's two, it's handsome and a liar. Fun fact: they never included me in any of the... / Continue →

    Because "bang in space" is at the top of everyone's bucket list, Playboy has decided to start the conceptualization process for an "out of this world" version of their Playboy Bunny Club. Its design will be outlined in the March issue of Playboy, but nobody is going to read it... / Continue →

    This is a video shot aboard the International Space Station by astronaut Don Pettit showing tiny water droplets orbiting a statically charged knitting needle. Pretty awesome, but also -- practical. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? "Like, about the solar system and life on... / Continue →

    Because some of us need constant reminders that the earth is actually a beautiful place and not just a breeding ground for miserable, greedy assholes, here's a short video taken from the International Space Station passing over a very stormy Africa, with the Milky Way serving a... / Continue →

    Seen here ready to punch a hole through a viewing portal and kill everyone on board, Robonaut 2 (I killed the first one) poses for the camera. Robonaut just woke from from his slumber aboard the International Space Station, and is ready to get to work picking off its crew memb... / Continue →

    This just in: the new viewing module added to the International Space Station is actually a refurbished TIE fighter cockpit. You heard it here first. Also, I'm the world's greatest lover and have a body that could make Adonis cry tears of pure abs. What -- you already heard ... / Continue →

    Sure we hear a lot about the International Space Station, but what do we actually know about it besides being a giant money-laundering scheme developed by the Illuminati? Nothing, that's what. Except butterflies can't fly in space. Well this is a video tour of the ISS from o... / Continue →

    Ever wonder how butterflies would fly in outerspace? Now thanks to BioServe Space Technologies, the University of Colorado and the International Space Station, we have the answer: poorly. Hit the jump for another video of a Painted Lady (these are Monarchs) butterfly trying t... / Continue →

    First of all, a space station of the ocean isn't classified as a space station, it's a Sea Lab. 2021? *high five* And you tell the captain to stay the hell away from me with that golf cart of his! Called the SeaOrbiter, the huge 51m (167ft) structure is set to be the world'... / Continue →

    Stephen Colbert just won a contest to have a new section of the International Space Station named after him. Unfortunately, those sticklers at NASA probably won't let it fly -- or orbit (ZING!). The name "Colbert" beat out NASA's four suggested options in the space agency's e... / Continue →

    That's right, Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata is slated to test a new kind of underwear during his current visit to the space station. The "state-of-the-art" undies were designed "to reduce the smells in normal clothing, absorb sweat and provide insulation." The underwear, d... / Continue →

    I really have no idea what I just watched but it reminded me of Monty Python's Flying Circus. Also, I think it carried a powerful message. One about doing it. In space. Docking [vimeo] Thanks to C, who has actually done it in space and always tells me the story and it ma... / Continue →
