    This is the Star Trek Federation shuttlecraft inspired camping tent concept designed by Dave Delisle. The shuttlecraft's thrusters double as the tent's carrying cases. Sadly, it will probably never become a real product because I question the market for a probably expensive S... / Continue →

    This is a short video of SpaceX successfully landing the first stage of one of its Falcon 9 rockets on a droneship floating in the Atlantic Ocean. It's so spectacular it doesn't even look real. The idea is that landing and refurbishing the boosters will cut down on costs sign... / Continue →

    This is a video of Jupiter getting smacked with what's believed to be an asteroid or comet. Or at least that's what the governments would like you to believe. But I know better. That was an alien spaceship. Baby Superman, nooooooooo! Way to go, Jor-El. As Phil Plait of Ba... / Continue →

    Astronaut Scott Kelly just returned to earth after spending 340 days aboard the International Space Station, and, among the things he brought back with him, are an extra 2-inches in height. Lucky! I wish I was a little bit taller. "I wish I was a baller." I wish I had a gir... / Continue →

    Because I'm convinced they're not doing anything but partying up there, this is a video of Scott Kelly dressed in a gorilla suit chasing his colleagues aboard the International Space Station. It's weird to think somebody loading up a container for shipment to the space station... / Continue →

    This is a video of astronaut Scott Kelly playing the slowest game of ping-pong with himself aboard the International Space Station using two super-hydrophobic paddles and a giant drop of water. Apparently none of the other astronauts wanted to challenge him to a real ping-pong... / Continue →

    These are several shots of a cat with beautiful heterochromatic eyes that make it look like its eyeballs are filled with outerspace. Heterochromia occurs when an iris contains two different colors and is no cause for concern if your pet was born that way, but could be a sign o... / Continue →

    This is a short video of SpaceX's latest Falcon 9 rocket landing. This time they tried landing the rocket on a barge, and it falls over and blows up (previously: successfully landing a Falcon 9 on dry land after satellite deployment). Per Elon Musk, who's a good sport about ... / Continue →

    This is the first flower grown in space (previously: lettuce). It's a zinnia. Are the petals curled because it was grown in low gravity? Beats me. Maybe it's just a runt. Now I want a space bouquet for Valentine's Day or it will be ruined and I'll throw a tantrum at the r... / Continue →

    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 short NASA video starring Jupiter spinning in 4K ultra high-definition. Jupiter is such a beautiful, terrifying planet. Did you know Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system (it's great red spot is about the size of earth) and still only 1/1,000th the size ... / 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 →
