    This is an incredibly sad video of QVC host Jane Treacy and designer Isaac Mizrahi debating whether the moon is a star or a planet. Clearly, basic grade school knowledge is not a prerequisite for selling tacky women's wear on television. The highlights (lowlights): It almos... / Continue →

    This is stabilized footage taken from the Apollo 16 mission of astronaut John W. Young blasting around on the moon's surface in the lunar rover. It looks like he was trying to do donuts. It really is worth a watch (especially in HD). It's hard to believe humans have actually... / Continue →

    This is a composite video made from a bunch of photos taken by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, featuring the moon rotating a full 360-degrees in high definition. You know, I like the moon because it always keeps me company when I'm out wandering the streets at night. It'... / Continue →

    This is a picture created by Redditor boredboarder8 of the moon with a to-scale United States superimposed over it to give you a concept of its size. That is, if you can imagine how big the United States is. Which, given the fact you just poked yourself in the eye with a drin... / Continue →
