  1. Have You Seen the Most Recent Saturn Images From Cassini Yet? Because They Are Splendid

    I can't decide between a Beyoncé joke or a Sailor Moon one right now.

    NASA's Cassini spacecraft has been zooming around taking raw images of Saturn for the past ten years. Though sometimes blurry and usually in black-and-white, these pictures are also some of the closest and most compelling images of the ringed planet that humanity has ever witnessed. Like, geez. Can you even imagine this is a real thing that actually exists in the universe? Because I cannot wrap my brain around it.

  2. NASA Has a Flying Saucer Now. Flying Saucers Are Cool.

  7. Things We Saw Today: Our First Look At the Disney Villain’s Kids From Descendants

    I think I saw a Monster High set like this once.

  10. National Research Council Says NASA Has to Get Its Ass to Mars

    Howdy, NASA. This is Hauser—er, the National Research Council.

    Go Mars or go home, NASA. That's what the National Research Council says in a new report, anyway. According to them, the only way forward for the human spaceflight program is getting focused on shooting for the stars. That's metaphorically speaking, of course. If Mars were a star, we'd all be dead. Or basically on Tatooine.
