  1. Get a Look at SpaceX’s New Dragon V2 and Its 3D Printed, Land-Anywhere Engine Technology

    This looks a lot safer than other space travel methods suggested over the last few weeks...

    Looks like we won't be needing that space trampoline after all, Dmitry Rogozin. SpaceX unveiled their first Dragon spacecraft designed to take a crew of astronauts to the ISS last night, and it's an improvement in every way over current methods of putting humans in orbit.

  2. Watch Live as SpaceX Unveils Their First Crewed Dragon Spacecraft Tonight at 10PM ET!

    Wow, they built that space trampoline fast.

    With Congress concerned that U.S.-Russian relations may impact our ability to run or even get to the International Space Station, SpaceX is stepping up with their first crewed Dragon spacecraft. The Dragon has already brought equipment to the ISS, so watch the live unveiling of the ship that will ferry astronauts to the station.

  3. NASA Will Send Robonaut’s Doc Ock Legs to the ISS Today With SpaceX, and You Can Watch With Us

    Let's build a robot Doctor Octopus and put him in charge of a space station. What could go wrong?

    NASA's Robonaut 2 has been patiently awaiting the arrival of his robotic Doc Ock legs as he sits completely immobile on a support post. Today, his lower half is launching to the ISS aboard the SpaceX Dragon spacecraft at 4:58PM ET, and then he'll be able to move freely about the space station and free up human astronauts for more complex tasks.

  4. After Some Trouble, SpaceX Dragon Capsule Docks Successfully With ISS

    Just minutes after its Friday morning launch, the SpaceX Dragon craft ran into some trouble. Shortly after separation from the Falcon 9 rocket, three out of four of the Dragon's thruster pods failed. Engineers on the ground worked quickly to fix the situation, and this morning the Dragon capsule is safely docked with the International Space Station. So what went wrong?

  5. Watch SpaceX’s Dragon Launch Live Stream Right Here

    Tomorrow's looking like a perfect day for a rocket launch in Cape Canaveral, Florida. SpaceX's second NASA-commissioned flight to the International Space Station is scheduled to take off in the morning. The mission will deliver a Dragon spacecraft with 1,200 lbs of supplies to the ISS, and will return to Earth loaded up with 2,300 lbs of things taken from the space station. We're looking forward to seeing the launch, and you can watch it right here.

  6. Bad News, Everyone — North Korean Unicorn Is Actually Just A Stupid Kirin

    Earlier this week, we brought you the profoundly heartening, life-affirming and 100% real, true news that North Korean archaeologists had discovered the ancient lair of a unicorn near Pyongyang. Today, though, it is with some regret that we have to correct that story. It turns out that the story of the unicorn lair suffered in translation, and what was discovered was nothing more than a simple, everyday lair of a kirin -- a dragon-like creature with a hooves like a cow and a unicorn-like horn. We are deeply sorry to bring you this news, which confirms once and for all that there is no light in the world and everything will be terrible forever.

  7. Baby Fighting A Dragon Ends Better For The Baby Than You Might Expect

    The above video aside, we here at Geekosystem want to register our strong disapproval of teaching dangerous martial arts techniques to small children. Ignoring for a moment the obvious dangers inherent in a child being able to beat up its own teachers, babysitters, and parents, the training necessary to master these skills is more than any small child should have to bear. Unless dragons are a problem in your neighborhood. At that point it's just responsible parenting.

  8. SpaceX Launch Has Engine Explode During Ascent, Proves Importance of Redundancy

    For those not aware, SpaceX had a mostly smooth launch of their Falcon 9 rocket yesterday. The Dragon capsule is on its way to the International Space Station. We say "mostly smooth" because, as it turns out, the Falcon 9 actually lost an engine as it was climbing toward orbit. Engine 1, seen in the upper right corner in the image above, disappeared in a fiery explosion before bits of debris could be seen falling away. Always a confidence booster to see one of our only ways to space blow up on video.

  10. Amazing Photos of the SpaceX Dragon Docking With the Space Station

    The hatch has been opened and history made as SpaceX's Dragon became the first commercial spacecraft to dock and resupply the International Space Station. During this historic mission, Dutch astronaut André Kuipers took some spectacular images from last week's approach and berthing maneuvers several hundred miles above the surface of the Earth.
