  2. The James Webb Space Telescope Sun Shield Will Help Us Search for Aliens, Looks Like a Star Destroyer

    I find your lack of intelligent life disturbing.

    Were you confused over the weekend as to why every NASA Twitter account and any account even closely related or interested was tweeting a picture of a really shiny, upside down Star Destroyer? (You follow everyone involved in the space program on Twitter too, right?) Wonder no more! It's the solar shield for Hubble's successor, the James Webb Space Telescope, and it'll help us find alien life on planets far, far away.

  5. Ken Ham Wants to Defund NASA Because All Aliens Don’t Go to Heaven (None of Them Do)

    "Damn you. Damn you all to Hell!" —Ken Ham to Aliens.

    Pack it up, NASA. Even if we find intelligent life out there in the universe, it can't be converted to Christianity, so you know, why even bother? What else could it possibly do for us? At least, that's what Ken Ham thinks, because the Bible, or something. Also maybe don't bother looking for intelligent life at Ken Ham's house.

  6. This Hubble Space Telescope Set Could Join LEGO’s Rapidly Expanding Universe

    Insights into space and time not included.

    This CUSOO LEGO Hubble Space Telescope design already has over 5,000 supporters, but considering the scientific achievements that a set like this would commemorate, I suspect that number might increase. Although good luck getting the Ultra Deep Field to work properly--it's hard to make awesome space porn when you're stuck on Earth.

  7. It’s The 45th Anniversary Of The Moon Landing, And The Internet Is Celebrating

    We come in peace for all nerdkind.

    I've never known our moon without footprints on it, but my mom speaks reverently about watching the Eagle touch down. It was the day after she turned nine years old, and her father -- my grandfather -- had worked on orbital mechanics for the Apollo program. This day fills me with pride for both my family and my species. When we put our minds to it, we are capable of achieving wondrous things.

  8. NASA Shows Off New Rover That Could Let Astronauts Cruise Around Mars

    One giant leap for rover kind?

    Getting humans to Mars is a goal NASA and other organizations hope to achieve in the near future, but what will we do when we get there? Why not drive around a bit? NASA has just the vehicle for the job with its omni-drive rover. It even has suit-ports so astronauts can hop out and check things out up close. I guess my only question is, hey NASA, can I borrow your car?

  9. Members of Congress Pushing to Look for Life on Europa to Help Life on Earth

    Despite warnings to attempt no landing there.

    Europa is one of the strongest possibilities for finding alien life within our solar system, so it's no surprise that NASA would want to explore it. The good news is that some members of congress think such a mission could benefit us Earthlings economically, which is good for its standing amid budget cuts.

    NASA apparently also has time travel capability?

    Yesterday was the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch that sent Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins to the Moon. That mission was one of the greatest achievements in human history, and you can experience it in "real" time thanks to NASA Archivist Liz Suckow. She's "live tweeting" the entire mission.
