SpaceX is going to be bringing the fucking pumpkin spice to space this October. At least, that is what I would be doing if I was running the resupply missions during such a season. Getting ripped to the tits, staring at the Blue Marble from afar.

If the Gods smile upon everything tomorrow as we suspect they will, the day will mark the launch of Dragon capsule and Falcon 9 rocket. Gods further willing, the son of a bitch will dock with the ISS for the first of many, many times.
This picture right here is the glory to kick off your post-Easter week. Feeling woozy? Questioning the bloat in that belly of yours? Escape it all by shucking your mortal flesh and galavanting up to the stars courtesy of this picture. Robotic supply ships! Space! Party!

Don’t pay any attention to the last half of the headline. It’s just my Cold War-obsessed brain making something more interesting out of the fact that NASA has exercised their rocket scientist brilliance by losing a laptop. Chock full of unencrypted space station secret info stuff.
Endeavour is back on the ground, but while it was taking its ultimate voyage, it spent some time docked on the International Space Station. Not one to waste and opportunity to take gorgeous pictures, Dani Caxete snapped some captures of the craft casting a gorgeous shadow against our solar system’s star.
Fuck church, how about some existential masturbation on a Sunday? We are currently on a Blue Rock, floating through the cosmos. This launch photo from the International Space Station underlines such a righteous fact.
The launch photo shows the rising exhausttrail from the rocket just minutes after blast off of the Ariane booster on Feb. 16 from the ESA rocket base in Kourou, French Guiana, South America. The rocket was still on a vertical ascent trajectory to orbit.
Outstanding. So say we all.
Make no mistake, our Earth is part of the cosmos that I continually wank to. And make no mistake, the Earth, and all its denizens (you and me) have created a pretty light show with all our modern technologies and demon-bulbs burning brightly. Recently, the International Space Station captured such sexiness.

From 220 miles above Earth, one of the Expedition 25 crew members on the International Space Station took this night time photo featuring the bright lights of Cairo and Alexandria, Egypt on the Mediterranean coast. The Nile River and its delta stand out clearly as well. On the horizon, the airglow of the atmosphere is seen across the Mediterranean. The Sinai Peninsula, at right, is outlined with lights highlighting the Gulf of Suez and Gulf of Aqaba.
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous stuff. Hit the jump to check out their pictures.
