  1. These Rocket Ship Cookie Cutters Take Space Food To Another Dimension

    Do Try This At Home

    These rocket ship cookie cutters provide all the shapes needed to make your cookies into 3-dimensional shuttles, rockets, star fighters, and space buggies. The rocket cookie cutters even come with star, astronaut, and alien shapes as well, to help you play with your food to best effect. Just imagine the icing possibilities! The company also has 3D dinosaur cookie cutters, including a Tyrannosaurus Rex and Stegosaurus. Now if only one of the ships offered was Serenity, we could reenact the first episode of Firefly with gingerbread.  Each ship comes separately, at $12 a ship, and can be purchased at SuckUK. Check out more photos of the cookies and cookie cutters after the jump.

  5. This is Probably As Close to Seeing a Space Shuttle Launch Live as You Can Get [Video]

    While there is plenty of high-quality footage showing the drama of a Space Shuttle liftoff, less attention has been paid to recreating the experience of witnessing the event first hand. YouTube user Indiegun spliced together the best blastoff footage around, and then went the extra mile by optimizing the audio to give viewers the stomach-vibrating feeling of being near a rocket launch. Indiegun says that the goal was to share the experience of watching a Shuttle launch to those who could never see it first hand. On our behalf: Thanks.

  6. Space Shuttle Enterprise Prepares for First and Last Flight Since 1985

    Entering their final phase of retirement, there's been a flurry of activity with the Space Shuttles these past few days. First, Discovery was flown to Washington, D.C. where it was enshrined by the Smithsonian. In doing so, it took the place of the Enterprise -- which was technically the first Shuttle ever built. Though it never went to space, Enterprise will take its first ride since arriving in D.C. back in 1985 when it is flown to New York City on Monday.

  8. Going to be Near D.C. Next Week? You Could See the Space Shuttle Fly

    If you happen to be hanging around the nation's capital on Tuesday, April 17 between, say, 10 and 11 A.M., you might want to look up because you might miss the last time Space Shuttle Discovery is in the air. It won't be under its own power of course, but strapped to the back of a modified Boeing 747 headed towards Dulles International Airport. Which, actually, might be just a but cooler than seeing the Shuttle by itself.

  9. LEGO Space Shuttle Flies to the Edge of Space [Video]

    We've already seen a host of objects hoisted high above the earth with the aid of weather balloons, but Romanian YouTube user vinciverse did something a little different. Aiming to create a tribute to the now-retired Space Shuttle, he built his own shuttle out of LEGOs and sent it to the edge of space with a weather balloon. In the proud tradition of B movie makers, the shuttle is suspended in front of a camera with fishing line. While the LEGO shuttle will never make it to orbit, it's a remarkable statement about the Shuttle's importance as a symbol to people all over the world.

  10. A Lego Tribute To The End Of The Space Shuttle Era

    It Came From Outer Space

    Well this is just plain pretty. It's a Lego-made space shuttle launch! YouTube user vinciverse writes, "The launch took place from central Germany and reached a max altitude of 35000m. A 1600g meteo balloon filled with helium was used alongside a GoPro Hero, Spot GPS and of course Lego Space Shuttle model 3367." (The song is "Welcome Home" by Radical Face) No word on how, when or if it ever came back to Earth but I like to think it just kept going...
