  1. Update: Sex Geckos on Russian Space Satellite All Reported Dead

    This isn't very sexy at all.

  2. Monday Cute: Little Girl’s Reaction to Rocket Liftoff Proves This Is How You Get Kids Into Science

    Oh my goodness.

    Getting kids into science is a lot easier than people make it out to be, because science is freaking amazing. Just look at this cute kid react to a "rocket ship" taking off for outer space and tell me she's not going to work for NASA some day. She can barely even handle her excitement. (To be fair, I'm 30 years old and this is still pretty much how I react to rockets taking off.)

  3. Experimental SpaceX Test Flight Ends Plus One Explosion, Minus One Rocket

    Actual rocket science.

    Oh dear. Yesterday, a SpaceX rocket prototype exploded during a test flight, after an as-of-yet unexplained anomaly caused the vehicle to self destruct. Thankfully, the incident occurred over a SpaceX testing area in Texas, so there were no injuries, nor was anyone in danger. The only results were some falling debris and, presumably, a control room full of gloomy aerospace engineers.

  7. Navy Names Newest Research Ship After First US Woman In Space, Sally Ride

    She's great at boats!

    When Sally Ride was leaving Earth's atmosphere as the first American woman in space, presumably she had quite a lot of thoughts on her mind. One of them probably wasn't "Gosh, I sure hope they name a Navy research ship after me when I die," but that's what happened this past weekend anyway.

  8. Congressmen Make Transparent Attempt to Bog Down SpaceX With Transparency Request

    "You can't take the sky from me!" -Elon Musk, probably.

    We've been pretty excited about SpaceX lately with their Falcon 9 rocket launches and landings, the Dragon V2 crew module, and their new spaceport in Texas, but some members of congress don't share our enthusiasm. Three members of congress in particular are trying to put unnecessary road blocks in front of SpaceX for their own interests. Maybe no one told them that where SpaceX is going, they don't need roads?

    That's no moon!

    When you're trying to make contact with a decommissioned NASA satellite that was first launched into space about thirty-six years ago, location is key. You need somewhere that can hold a lot of people and low-tech equipment, and also maybe a ton of french fries for all those hungry citizen scientists. Hey, you know what would be great? An abandoned McDonalds restaurant.
