    This is a visual representation of how many earths could fit inside the sun, provided there are actually 1.3-million little blue balls in that plastic sphere. Are there? I have no clue. I've never been good at those 'guess how many gumballs are in the jar' games. I am not v... / Continue →

    This is Outer Space Vodka. It costs $40 for a 750mL bottle and has been distilled through actual meteorites four times for EXTRA SPACE CANCER. Obviously, nobody is going to buy it except for the glass alien head bottle. If I was in college I would buy a bottle, finish it, then ... / Continue →

    This is a beautiful time-lapse video created using photographs taken in sequence during Apollo missions to the moon. It's worth a watch. It's still hard to believe how well NASA faked all this. "NASA didn't fake it." Fine, it's still hard to believe how well HOLLYWOOD faked... / Continue →

    This is the very impressive pumpkin carving of Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin on the moon (it's a recreation of this photograph) carefully etched away by pumpkin carving extraordinaire Edward Cabral (more of his work HERE). Obviously, Edward will not be allowed to enter my p... / Continue →

    Higher res version HERE. This is a composite shot created by photographer Mike Mezeul II of Sunday's blood moon lunar eclipse moving across the Dallas skyline. Beautiful, isn't it? It's hard to believe there's a planet so close to us. "The moon is not a planet." The moon i... / Continue →

    Cool bed but why is there toast on the floor? This is the Star Wars landspeeder bed father and Redditor Ghostfaceace built for his young son. Apparently they're going to deck out the whole room with a space theme soon. Then when he is old enough that kid can ask girls if the... / Continue →

    Astronauts aboard the International Space Station just tried the first produce grown in space yesterday after eating the red romaine lettuce they grew as part of the Veg-01 experiment. No word if they also produced ranch dressing, but you're not gonna catch me eating some plai... / Continue →

    This is a video (assembled from a bunch of still photos) captured by NASA's Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) spacecraft of the moon transiting across earth, taken from a million miles away. I wish I was a million miles away right now. I am not though, I am right here. ... / Continue →

    This is an ultra high-def (4K) video of an astronaut dissolving an antacid tablet in a ball of water in space. It makes a bubbly space ball. I'm starting to wonder -- are the astronauts actually doing any real science on the space station or are they all just up there filming... / Continue →

    After analyzing four years of date from the Kepler space telescope, NASA has announced Kepler-452b, the most earth-like planet they've found outside our own solar system. So maybe there's still a little shred of hope left *reprograms spaceship's autopilot destination from cent... / Continue →

    This is a 360-degree pannable video (after the jump -- use the controls in the top left of the screen) showing what it would look like if you could see all the asteroids in the sky simultaneously. What would it look like? AWESOME. It reminds me of the little shooting stars I... / Continue →

    This is a video of European Space Agency astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti demonstrating how to make a mackerel, quinoa and leek cream tortilla in outerspace. It's worth a watch, if for no other reason but to watch the tortilla float around and realize how amazing that must be ... / Continue →

    This is a video of astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti demonstrating (without actually demonstrating) how to use the International Space Station's toilet. It works pretty much exactly how you'd expect, provided you didn't expect you could just use it like a regular toilet because... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE in case you wanna look for aliens. This is a shot of a Martian sunset captured by the Mars rover Curiosity. Beautiful, isn't it? But also pretty desolate looking. I can't help but feel that poor lil rover is out there all alone like Wall-E, but wi... / Continue →
