I ain’t never seen the Milky Way rise in the night sky, though if I ever do I am certain I will fall to my knees in space-supplication.
I say goddamn! Let’s all do what I am inclined to do: get excited over some astronomical theorizing based off of computer simulations! There ain’t nothing like mathematical calculations postulating about Earth-sized planets to get my nipples leaking mud.
Watch out, asteroids. Your days of romping about the space neighborhood with unfettered access shall soon be over. Uncle Sam is aiming NASA at its next goal, and it is to capture an asteroid. It ain’t exactly Mars, but….I don’t know. Yay?
Shout out to Dave Kendricken of No Film School for bringing this to my attention. I can barely comprehend the concept of time and space interlocking into some wily thing where like, spacemen come back from their journey to find their families dead. So I definitely cannot comprehend the largest structure in the Universe. I can, however, enjoy trying to comprehend my lack of comprehension.
Finish up vomiting over the pun in this post’s title, and bask in the glory of the Jelly Fish Nebula. Light from this star reached Earth 30,000 years ago. Goddamn. I don’t know what you were doing back then, but I was tilling the plutonium fields for the Hyper-Evolved Shark people who roamed the world. Shame they were eradicated by the common cold.
Mars is white? This is probably not news to people smarter and more well-versed than myself. To me? It’s all fucking up my sayings. The Red Planet? The Pale Planet? The Superficially Red-y Planet?
Check out this resplendent Grand Spiral galaxy. Perched only a completely inaccessible 40 million light-years away is a galaxy that is somewhat like our own. So the wizards say. I don’t know if they tell the truth. I just smile and look at the pretty pictures.
Fare the well, Voyager 1. You’re currently hauling ass through the “magnetic highway”, as you approach the limits of our solar system. Keep in mind our wonderful moments together. Recall, if you will, the time we built your ungrateful ass. Fawn over the concept of being the first object we’ve sent out of our solar system. Dearest regards.
It’s time to get excited, while simultaneously not getting excited! NASA has unveiled that they’ve found organic compounds on Mars, except maybe they’re not from Mars. Yeah, wait, huh? Am I excited, or not? I have this pint of apple-urine deliciousness, but I need to know if I’m throwing it on a flower or drinking it with a smile. Someone. Tell me.
G’damn! Saturn is quite large. This gorgeous picture was snapped back in August by Cassini, and it captures the true hulking might of the planet named after a video game system. That’s where it came from, right? Shame it couldn’t have been named after a more wonderful gaming system, but hey. Who could have known?
