Fastest star ever observed is moving so fast it is visibly warping spacetime. Holy Hell! Or rather, Holy Cosmos!
Mammia fucking mia! The fastest star ever observed is moving so fast that it’s fucking visibly warping spacetime. Like, let that rattle around in your fucking simian-ass brains. Almost incomprehensible.
Watch: Mars got a weird nightglow in its atmosphere that pulses three times a night. The Red Planet is wonderfully weird
You know, I wasn’t even aware of Mars’ nightglow in its atmosphere. But, I am now! Additionally, I also now know that motherfucker pulses three times a night. Awesome.
Pluto may not be a planet anymore, but it is fucking flexing on Earth. You see, it’s got more water than the Blue Marble. But, five moons do as well!

Man, space is fucking huge. Incomprehensibly so. The latest example? This comet tail, which stretched for over a billion kilometers. Insane.
Here’s a little batch of cosmic glory for you motherfuckers, on this Friday. It’s a gorgeous tapestry taken by the Hubble Space Telescope, and captures thousands of stars. I said, thousands!

Astronomers find that some stars have a rhythmic pulsing not unlike a heartbeat. The fucking Cosmos pulses, yo!
Fucking astronomer wizards have done it again, folks. They’ve long been puzzled by the rhythmic pulses of a certain type of star, and now they’ve finally been able to cut through all the noise. To discover! Their beating hearts! Okay, okay. Not literally, but this is dope.
Yo! Peep a look at Jupiter’s hazy higher atmosphere! It’s courtesy of NASA’s Juno mission.
Hit the jump to check it out, ’cause it’s huge.
Today, in fucking fantastic space exploration news? NASA wants to chase interstellar objects with an orbital slingshot. Gimme a fuck yeah!
It took merely hundreds of exposures by the Gemini North Telescope in Hawaii to captured this photo of Jupiter. It’s one of the “sharpest observations of the planet ever made on the ground” and it’s also gnarly as fuck.
Space is fucking wild in its relativity, man. Astronomers have found the nearest black hole, and it’s *only* 1,000 light-years away. Which is both insanely far away, and also relatively close.
