It can feel like everything is shit these days, for sure. I get it, I get it. But, when I’m down, news like this picks me up a notch. We got a goddamn lander sending back pictures from Mars. Mars!
The Kepler telescope has found so many goddamn dope things out in the cosmos. But, now it is time for the sweet telescope to sleep. NASA has given the telescope a final set of “goodnight’ commands to the telescope on the anniversary of Johannes Kepler’s death. A fitting end.
Space, is in fact, the motherfucking place.
Folks, the Kepler Space Telescope is dead. However, it shall not be forgotten by any means. The telescope is responsible for finding, conservatively, a fuck-ton of exoplanets. Therefore, we must remember it always. Dead, but alive forever.
We going back to the Moon, baby! Right back to its surface! Provided, you know, the Collapse doesn’t occur between now and 2024. Be optimistic! I’ll try!
Behold! A glorious picture of space dude Buzz Aldrin romping on the Moon, some 49 years-ago today.
Check out Jupiter’s meaty southern hemisphere! I don’t know, there’s probably a better, more puerile pun, but it’s hot out and I’m tired.
Juno out there, doing work. Capturing gorgeous images of Jupiter. This time, it’s of the planet’s gorgeously chaotic clouds.
I say goddamn, does Mars ever have a dust storm. In fact, the motherfucker has grown so big that its encircling the entire Red Planet.
