  1. Ken Ham Wants to Defund NASA Because All Aliens Don’t Go to Heaven (None of Them Do)

    "Damn you. Damn you all to Hell!" —Ken Ham to Aliens.

    Pack it up, NASA. Even if we find intelligent life out there in the universe, it can't be converted to Christianity, so you know, why even bother? What else could it possibly do for us? At least, that's what Ken Ham thinks, because the Bible, or something. Also maybe don't bother looking for intelligent life at Ken Ham's house.

  2. Don’t Worry, Fellow Humans: Science Is Hard At Work On Space Beer

    Mars needs moms Molson.

    We put a Buzz in space, but can we get a buzz on in space? Fear not, Earthlings: scientists and breweries across our planet are already hard at work ensuring that if we ever meet extraterrestrials in the final frontier, we'll have a couple of quality cold ones in the chamber to share.

  3. This Hubble Space Telescope Set Could Join LEGO’s Rapidly Expanding Universe

    Insights into space and time not included.

    This CUSOO LEGO Hubble Space Telescope design already has over 5,000 supporters, but considering the scientific achievements that a set like this would commemorate, I suspect that number might increase. Although good luck getting the Ultra Deep Field to work properly--it's hard to make awesome space porn when you're stuck on Earth.

  4. It’s The 45th Anniversary Of The Moon Landing, And The Internet Is Celebrating

    We come in peace for all nerdkind.

    I've never known our moon without footprints on it, but my mom speaks reverently about watching the Eagle touch down. It was the day after she turned nine years old, and her father -- my grandfather -- had worked on orbital mechanics for the Apollo program. This day fills me with pride for both my family and my species. When we put our minds to it, we are capable of achieving wondrous things.

  5. NASA Shows Off New Rover That Could Let Astronauts Cruise Around Mars

    One giant leap for rover kind?

    Getting humans to Mars is a goal NASA and other organizations hope to achieve in the near future, but what will we do when we get there? Why not drive around a bit? NASA has just the vehicle for the job with its omni-drive rover. It even has suit-ports so astronauts can hop out and check things out up close. I guess my only question is, hey NASA, can I borrow your car?

  6. Citizen Scientists Get ISEE-3 Satellite Engines to Fire!

    It's like Apollo 13 without Tom Hanks.

    The amazing people behind the ISEE-3 reboot project have gotten its engines to fire! They previously had trouble due to a lack of nitrogen to push fuel through the old satellite's fuel lines and into the engines, but some creative use of the satellite's tank heaters seems to have paid off and gotten things working. They've been live tweeting the whole thing, so you can catch up on everything they've been up to on their Twitter feed after the jump.

  7. Members of Congress Pushing to Look for Life on Europa to Help Life on Earth

    Despite warnings to attempt no landing there.

    Europa is one of the strongest possibilities for finding alien life within our solar system, so it's no surprise that NASA would want to explore it. The good news is that some members of congress think such a mission could benefit us Earthlings economically, which is good for its standing amid budget cuts.

  8. Things We Saw Today: That’s No Moon

    In space, no one can rear you scream.

    Boy, this image of Comet 67P that was taken by the European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft looks like something, but I can't put my finger on just butt it is. Err, what it is. Go check out some more details on the ESA website.

  9. NASA’s Liz Suckow Is “Live Tweeting” the 1969 Apollo 11 Moon Mission, and It’s the Best

    NASA apparently also has time travel capability?

    Yesterday was the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch that sent Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins to the Moon. That mission was one of the greatest achievements in human history, and you can experience it in "real" time thanks to NASA Archivist Liz Suckow. She's "live tweeting" the entire mission.

  10. Buzz Aldrin Has a “Get Your Ass to Mars” T-Shirt

    I want a T-shirt of Buzz Aldrin wearing that T-shirt.

    Today is the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch! To celebrate, General Electric started snapchatting pictures of Buzz Aldrin, who apparently owns a shirt telling NASA to get its ass to Mars. (He's not the only one who thinks that by the way. The National Research Council agrees.) Happy Anniversary, Buzz. Cool shirt!
