AstronomerWizards have found themselves (and us!) a new Dwarf planet in our solar system. The motherfucker is like, way out there. But out there no less.
This week, the Japanese Space Agency released the first HD footage of the Earth Rise from the Moon. This footage, man. This footage is fucking stunning. Glory! Perspective! Now, just imagine HD footage from Mars. Okay, yeah, fine. This is only tangentially related. But it still gets my geek-gonads gooey.
Get us to Mars, NASA! Get us to Mars, Obama! If the two of them have their way, it’ll be by the 2030s, apparently.
Elon Musk is taking our asses to Mars. Maybe. So like, can someone get on settling Europa? NASA has found further evidence of water plumes on the moon, furthering the idea that it has subsurface oceans. Fucking astounding.
Hubble captures the death of a sun-like star, and we’re all the better for it. Thank you, Hubble. For capturing its glory. Me? I’m either going to die from a fall, or covered in my own feces and surrounded by Pepsi Max cans (regardless of age).
Motherfuckin’ Hubble doin’ work, son! Its deep field images have captured an entirely new type of galaxy.
Seriously, astronomers call this nebula a High-Excitating Blob. Space ain’t just awesome, apparently it is fun.
NASA has just flown a spacecraft closer to Jupiter than ever before. The Solar System’s bulwark (seriously, big bastard eats so much space debris so we can not be obliterated so we can watch reality shows and attack one another with horrible, horrible mad-made weaponry, so uh, thanks?) is getting a thorough examination, courtesy of the Juno spacecraft.
