NASA is teasing some potentially enormous (ENORME!) findings on Saturn’s moon, Enceladus. Like, you know, the conditions for life.
Here’s an artist rendition of Cassini’s final dive. The beautiful spacecraft will make one more sweep between the planet and its rings before plummeting into Saturn itself this September.
ELON MUSK. Please, sir. Please. Before you link all of our brains up to computers, can you please get some of us off this fucking rock? You’re doing good work, and this whole launching and landing a used rocket makes me feel like fuck it you may be on to something. ELON MUSK. Please, sir. Please.
No big deal. Just two galaxies captured by Hubble. No big deal, just two galaxies captured by Hubble twisting each other into unusual and unique shapes. Space is fucking rad.
SpaceX has been approached by two obviously rich as fuck private citizens, who want to be sent around the Moon. And! The good, kind, cosmos-capitalist company has agreed, with plans slated for next year.
I’m jealous. Very jealous.
NASA has dropped the boom on their teased discovery. Seven Earth-sized planets 40 light-years away. Three in the habitable “Goldilocks” zone. Everyone is understandably excited about this news, so let me be a downer. 40 light-years away is more than enough distance for us to never get there, especially since we got like 100 years left on this rotting formerly Blue Marble.
News! Big news! Aliens, it’s gotta be aliens, right? Oh man! Exciting. Sort of. Until you realize we’re destroying ourselves at a fantastic rate, and even getting *out* of this solar system is nearly impossible for us. Man. Really brought down the vibe in here. But, but still, I’m excited.
Cassini, doing what Cassini does. Taking beautiful pictures. Reporting back.
Hubble has captured the glorious spiral of the Andromeda constellation. Not to be confused with our neighboring Andromeda galaxy.
The uh, the Moon is way, way, way older than we thought. Hey! Fuck! Don’t blame me. I’m just a slob who posts banality and stares at asses all day long. Blame one of the SpaceWizards.
