Or, depending on how strongly you believe the Moon landing conspiracy theories, NVIDIA just proved that their new GPUs are terrible and light things all wrong. Your call, I guess.

  2. Supermassive Black Hole Found In Tiniest Galaxy Yet

    Black holes and revelations.

    Supermassive black holes are known for hanging around the centers of large galaxies and keeping us all in orbit, but a new find suggests they might be at the center of much smaller galaxies, as well, which raises questions about how they got there. A tiny nearby galaxy appears to host one of these massive black holes, which means we could find a lot more of them out there.

  3. NASA Audit Concludes They’re Not Prepared to Protect Us From Asteroids or Even Detect Them

    How long does it take to assemble a ragtag team of retired astronauts, anyway?

    You know what we haven't done in a while? Found an asteroid that's about to fly uncomfortably close to Earth. And that's not necessarily a good thing.

  6. New Horizons Spacecraft Snaps Pictures of Pluto’s Moon Hydra

    HAIL HYDRA. (Come on. You knew it was coming.)

    Pluto may not be a planet anymore, but at least its moons haven't abandoned it. It has five that we know about. So, you know, whatever, Earth and your one moon. Pluto doesn't even care about being a planet. Actually, New Horizons is on the lookout for Pluto's moons in case any we don't know about pose a danger to the mission, and it just got close enough to detect one of the ones we do know about: Hydra.
