  2. Your Scientific Chart Porn For The Day: A Spiralling Geological Timeline Of Earth’s 4.5 Billion Years

    Wibbly wobbly timey wimey!

    Time is an illusion. Lunch time, doubly so. The timeline of our planet's 4.5 billion year geological history? Well you can just forget about making sense of that yourself, good sirs. What you need is a giant, elaborately detailed chart for that sort of thing.

  3. The Earth And Moon Have Totally Been Lying About Their Age, Are Actually 60 Million Years Older Than We Thought

    Even older if you're a Young Earth creationist.

    So you know that planet that crashed into Earth billions of years ago and formed the Moon? Geochemists who've been studying this phenomenon think that the impact occurred much earlier than we thought -- which means that the Earth and Moon are also older than we'd calculated.

  4. What Would Saturn Look Like If It Passed Into Earth’s Orbit? (Answer: Pretty Dang Awesome)

    "S'up, Earth? Uranus and Neptune say hello."

    Imagine that gravitational forces were completely irrelevant and Saturn just decided to pop by for a visit en route to the Sun. I don't know; maybe it wanted to go on a playdate with the Moon or something. I heard they're pretty tight. Anyway, this video is pretty mathematically accurate to what that encounter would look like.

  5. Kate Mulgrew To Narrate A Film About How The Sun Revolves Around The Earth Because Everything Sucks

    Set phasers to sadness.

    It's a sad day for fans of Star Trek Voyager : Captain Kathryn Janeway herself is lending her voice to a "documentary" about how the Sun revolves around the Earth and how NASA is leading a conspiracy to keep the truth away from us. Oh, boy.

  6. Science Has Found the Oldest Pieces of the Earth

    Guys, these things are seriously older than dirt.

    Unless you believe Jesus rode around on dinosaurs, the Earth is pretty darn old. It's hard to learn about the Earth's formation now that pretty much everything here has undergone massive changes since then, which is why scientists are so excited to have found the oldest surviving fragment of the Earth ever in the form of a tiny zircon crystal.

  7. The Curiosity Rover Snapped Its First Picture of Earth and Safely Crossed Into the Dingo Gap

    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. Across the cold, empty reaches of space, the rover has taken a picture of the home of all seven billion humans, and it looks like just a tiny speck.

  8. Good News, Everyone! The Sun Won’t Actually Die As Soon As We Thought

    The bad news is that death, however slow its approach, continues to be inescapable.

    We know you were all worried about the possibility of our  sun becoming too hot and eventually drying up all the Earth's oceans with its fiery wrath. Well, it's okay! You can all relax now. It's probably going to happen a few billion years later than we thought it would, so we have plenty of time to destroy the planet ourselves first.
