  1. Italian Astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti’s Space-Cosplay Game is On Point

    "Coffee: the finest organic suspension ever devised."

    Italian astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti has been living it up on the ISS since November as flight engineer of the Futura mission, and celebrated the SpaceX Dragon freighter's delivery of supplies earlier this week (including specially-engineered, Borg-proof Italian space coffee) by sharing an extremely nerdy pic on Twitter.

  7. SpaceX Crash Landed a Rocket From Space on a Barge, and That’s Pretty Impressive

  8. Protest Halts NASA Commercial Human Spaceflight Partner Program With Boeing and SpaceX

    If you can't get along, we'll turn this spaceship right around and go home!

    We were excited when NASA announced that it would bring human spaceflight back to the United States with a partner program for commercial companies Boeing and SpaceX, but not everyone has been equally thrilled. Spaceflight company Sierra Nevada was passed over for NASA contracts in favor of the other two companies, and now they're contesting the decision through the U.S. Government Accountability Office.

  12. Experimental SpaceX Test Flight Ends Plus One Explosion, Minus One Rocket

    Actual rocket science.

    Oh dear. Yesterday, a SpaceX rocket prototype exploded during a test flight, after an as-of-yet unexplained anomaly caused the vehicle to self destruct.

The only results were some falling debris and, presumably, a control room full of gloomy aerospace engineers.

  13. Congressmen Make Transparent Attempt to Bog Down SpaceX With Transparency Request

    "You can't take the sky from me!" -Elon Musk, probably.

    We've been pretty excited about SpaceX lately with their Falcon 9 rocket launches and landings, the Dragon V2 crew module, and their new spaceport in Texas, but some members of congress don't share our enthusiasm. Three members of congress in particular are trying to put unnecessary road blocks in front of SpaceX for their own interests. Maybe no one told them that where SpaceX is going, they don't need roads?
