  2. You Can Finally See the “Dark Side” of the Moon Thanks to a NASA Video

    Pink Floyd has been waiting.

    We only see one side of the Moon from the Earth because the Moon is impossible and obviously make-believe over time, it has come to rotate at the same speed that it revolves around our planet. Since actually changing that to give everyone a look at the other side would be difficult and possibly apocalyptic due to the Moon's importance in everything, NASA made this neat video se we could all see what we're missing.

  3. Evangelion Fans In Japan Launch Crowdfunding Campaign To Send a Spear of Longinus To The Moon

    Bang, zoom!

    2015 isn't just the year that we're all supposed to get hoverboards and power laces—it also marks the beginning of the classic anime Neon Genesis Evangelion, in which a group of teenagers must save the world from the aftermath of a cataclysmic event. Thankfully our teenagers today don't actually have that problem, but that hasn't stopped fans from trying to recreate an iconic part of the show—AKA, that part where the spear of Longinus gets stuck into the Moon.

  4. The FAA Is Encouraging U.S. Businesses to Set Up Shop on the Moon

    But what happens when they mine all of the cheese?

  5. QVC Hosts Argue Over Whether the Moon Is a Star or Planet; We Weep for Science Education.

    That's no moon. I don't know what it is, but it's definitely no moon.

    If you want to feel better about the state of science education in today's world, pretend Shawn Killinger and Isaac Mizrahi are doing a scene from a Star Wars draft before the Death Star existed, where Obi Wan is just like, "That's no moon. It's a star!" Then Han is all, "NO. It's a planet," and then Obi Wan says, "Shut up, fool. You use parsecs to measure time."

  6. The European Space Agency’s Not-So-Crazy Plan to 3D Print a Base on the Moon

    Do you want to build a moon base?

    Architectural firm Foster + Partners produced this video along with the European Space Agency showing how a lunar base could be constructed by 3D printing robots and an inflatable dome. 3D printing the base out of lunar dust would cut down the cost significantly by removing the need to launch a heavy housing structure from Earth and put a Moon base within reach.

  8. If the Moon Were as Close to the Earth as the ISS, We’d Be in Big Trouble [Video]

    Welp, so much for a miracle romance.

    Fun fact: the ISS is actually way closer to the Earth than you'd think it would be. Like, only about 240 miles. That's basically less than a three and a half hour drive on your standard highway road in the U.S. Which is fine, because as far as space objects go, the ISS is pretty small. But what if the Moon were traveling at that distance instead?

  10. Senator Announces NASA Project to Park Asteroid Near Our Moon

    We first heard of the plan to capture a small asteroid and park it near our Moon, essentially giving our Moon a moon of its own, back in January, but now it seems all but official. Chairman of the Senate Science and Space Subcommittee, Senator Bill Nelson said on Friday President Obama will include $100 million in the 2014 budget for the asteroid project, calling it a "clever concept." I wonder what William Shatner will suggest we name it.
