  1. NASA and ESA Form a Super-Science Team-Up to Protect Us From Asteroids

    We don't wanna miss a thing. Except maybe getting hit by an asteroid.

    It happened to the dinosaurs - and there's a good chance it might happen to us. Well, not US-us, because anyone reading this might be long dead by the time that sort of thing happens. But STILL. It's good to have a plan. Thankfully, NASA is teaming up with the European Space Agency (ESA) to come up with one.

  2. NASA Tests Reportedly Show “Physics-Defying” EM Drive Might Actually Work to Propel Spacecraft

    *Crosses all fingers.*

    The "EM Drive," an engine that creates thrust by bouncing microwaves around inside a chamber, confounds physicists because it manages to produce thrust without expelling any propellant—seemingly defying the law of conservation of momentum—even in a vacuum. That ability was tested by NASA's "Eagleworks" at the Johnson Space Center, and the results have them optimistic about the drive's future in space travel.

  10. Things We Saw Today: A Harry Potter Cast Reunion Between Draco & Some Weasleys

    It pains me for obvious book reasons that there is only one Weasley twin present here, but Tom Felton hanging out with Rupert Grint, Bonnie Wright, and James Phelps might be enough to stifle my never-ending Fred mourning. That James is the one who played Fred is only confusing matters for my heart.

    Your phone is go for liftoff.

    I was a firm believer that my phone should never ever make any sounds in favor of vibration-only right up until the very second I discovered that NASA has a repository of short sound clips from their space missions in both mp3 and iPhone ringtone formats. Hey, maybe the short reminders of humanity's proudest achievements will put me in a good enough mood to actually answer my phone.

  16. A Galaxy Far Far Away Is Smiling At You In This Hubble Telescope Image

    Well, okay, this galaxy cluster is made up of gaseous stars that have no mouths or emotions or sentience, so they are not smiling at you, specifically, because the universe is a cold unfeeling collection of objects floating around in nothingness. I mean, uh... look at how cute he is! Aww!

    NASA is launching their Deep Space Climate Observatory Satellite (or DSCOVR, because, of course) this evening from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral. DSCOVR is heading to space on a SpaceX Falcon 9 (which is a reusable rocket, so that's pretty cool). The NASA livestream starts here at 5pmE, and the launch is set for 6:05pmE. NASA says that because this is a sunset launch, it'll be great for viewing.

  19. You Can Finally See the “Dark Side” of the Moon Thanks to a NASA Video

    Pink Floyd has been waiting.

    We only see one side of the Moon from the Earth because the Moon is impossible and obviously make-believe over time, it has come to rotate at the same speed that it revolves around our planet. Since actually changing that to give everyone a look at the other side would be difficult and possibly apocalyptic due to the Moon's importance in everything, NASA made this neat video se we could all see what we're missing.
