  1. Real-Life Headline Alert: Russia Has Lost Control Of a Sex Satellite Filled With Geckos

    Don't go getting any bright ideas, astronauts.

    Last Saturday Russia's Institute of Medico-Biological Problems launched a Foton-M4 satellite filled with five geckos into orbit so that the people of earth would know how reptile booty is impacted by zero-gravity. Unfortunately, the cold-blooded casanovas had a different plan: due to a technical glitch (or possible mutiny) the orbiting orgy has gone rogue.

  2. Forget Trampolines, US Senate Panel Dedicating $100 Million To Build Rocket Engine

    Shoot for the moon, guys, and even if you miss maybe you can still get to the ISS!

    In the wake of deteriorating Russian-American relations, the Senate's Armed Service Committee announced a bill yesterday that would budget $100 million to the development of a US-made rocket engine. Man, wouldn't it be awesome if space exploration received this kind of funding without all the international conflict?

  3. Congress Asks NASA If the International Space Station Is in Trouble Over U.S.-Russian Relations

    "You kids behave yourselves, or I will turn this space station right around and go home." —Russia

    Hey, we're not the only ones concerned that Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin has been slinging insults and making threats that Russia will just leave everyone else with a crippled ISS in 2020! Congress must have heard what was going on, because they asked NASA if it's more than just a threat.

  4. Russia Threatens to Pull out of the ISS Over Politics, Good Luck Opening the Pod Bay Doors Without Them, NASA

    This is getting dangerously close to "I know you are, but what am I?" and inter-space agency slap fights.

    Dmitry Rogozin, head of the space and defense industry, told NASA where they could shove it that they could use a trampoline to get to the ISS, because Russia is sick of helping us if we're going to sanction them. Now, he's talking about pulling out of the ISS early and rendering it pretty much useless.

  5. Russian Official Says NASA Can Go F@&# Itself Use a Trampoline to Send Astronauts to Space

    Well that's not very nice at all.

    Things between Russia and the United States are a little... complicated at the moment due to tensions over the Ukraine/Crimea situation. NASA relies on the Russians to get American astronauts to and from the ISS, but a Russian Deputy Prime Minister has suggested maybe we should be using a trampoline instead. Wait. That won't work, will it?

  6. Russia Now Has Firefighters Flying Around on Firehose-Powered Hovercraft

    Flyer Fighter? Firefly?

    Russian firefighters made a hovercraft like those jet ski-powered jetpacks. I don't know what's happening in Russia that they needed to invent flying firefighters, but they can now levitate with the power of water to save you wherever you are. (Provided "wherever you are" is a few feet off the ground and relatively nearby.)

  7. Russia Has Taken Control of Ukraine’s Elite Dolphin Soldiers, Also Ukraine Used to Have Elite Dolphin Soldiers

    Unrelated: Who wants to play Battle Beasts later?

    The situation in Russia, Ukraine, and Crimea is complicated, and honestly not the kind of thing that usually falls into our purview, but we just learned that Ukraine had a team of dolphin soldiers that Crimea took with them. The Russian navy now has a team of dolphin soldiers.

  8. This Video of a Russian Experiment Looks Like Real-Life Gravity

    Don't waste your money on the DVD, the Russian prequel was way scarier.

    In the wake of Gravity's Awards Season success, Sploid has this eerie video to remind us that Astronaut Ryan Stone's horrifying space odyssey essentially happened "for real" back in 2006. Yes, the Russian experiment was all in the name of education, but that doesn't make the footage any less bone-chilling.

  9. Somebody Thinks Steven Seagal is a Media Expert, Interviewed Him on TV About Russian Foreign Relations

    Segal is a lot of things, but maybe not that.

    Imagine: you're sitting at home watching news about the Russian Occupation of Crimea, and you're confused. These nations are so far away! Who can you trust to report the conflict fairly? How about an action star who believes himself to be a reincarnated Tibetan lama? Yeah, he seems trustworthy, right?

  10. The Winter Olympics Will Have a Giant Kryptonian Face Projector, the World Engine Is Working

    Behold MegaFace, Destroyer of... Faces...

    It seems that Zod's plan to turn Earth into Krypton in Man of Steel wasn't entirely unsuccessful, as this year's Winter Olympics in Sochi will have a building-size version of the pin art face displays used by the Kryptonians. They're calling it MegaFace. Yeah, they pretty much named it after Megatron. Get your references straight, Russia.
