    A dingo did not eat our rover.

    The Curiosity rover is a long way from home, boys and girls, and this shot of what the Earth looks like from where it is on Mars is a reminder of just how far that is.

    Maybe the dingo will eat our rover.

  7. Curiosity Rover Found Signs of an Ancient Lake on Mars That Was Possibly Hospitable to Life

    What life? Let's just hope it's not those water monsters from "The Waters of Mars."

    Here on Earth, we pretty much expect our water to be drinkable, but it's a pretty amazing find on Mars. Scientists reported earlier this year that the Curiosity Rover found signs of an ancient lake on Mars, but they're just now finding out that the lake's water may have been basically drinkable by human standards and hospitable to life.

  8. Six Great Science Selfies to Celebrate That Science and Selfie Are Words of the Year

    Who knew that selfies and science had such a beautiful symbiotic relationship?

    We're behind NASA's logic on most things (especially on how great space is), but we're extra into their logic that both "selfie" and "science" being named words of the year means that science selfies are pretty much the ultimate accomplishment.

So she announced this week the start of the #ShutdownScienceClub and she's encouraging everyone to #DoAScience and tweet a photo. Get to it!
