What's happening in space (that's interesting)

Missed! Load the asteroid gun again!


#2192

The probe confirms organic resources found on the 3rd planet from the star. Harvesters have been dispatched.


#2193


When has a giant space coffin ever caused any harm?


#2194

It depends on whether you consider the events in Lifeforce to be disastrous or totally worth it.


#2195

That depends upon whether I’m watching it on Netflix or living it in real life.

New pictures of Jupiter!


#2198

The Juno spacecraft captured this image when the spacecraft was only 11,747 miles (18,906 kilometers) from the tops of Jupiter’s clouds — that’s roughly as far as the distance between New York City and Perth, Australia.

Home town call out on NASA!

The thrusters on our adorable relic Voyager 1 still work!


#2200

Subsequent tweets reveal this is probably isn’t a joke, and it is the first generation Tesla Roadster, not the new one.

Elon is not your normal CEO.


#2201

I don’t know, the tesla only weighs 3,000 lbs. That’s only 1/10 the mass of the lunar module. Not sure what he is trying to prove? Or is he filling it with concrete?


#2202

Just marketing, dude.


#2203

I bet there’s a body in the trunk.


#2204

Wow that’s pic isn’t false color? Blue isn’t what I normally associate with Jupiter.


#2205

They aren’t going to put anything valuable like a real satilite on it as this is the first ever launch of the FH and Elon himself said it could very well fail. So he’s doing this gimmick instead.


#2206

And the eventual destination is mars orbit which is as good as exploded. Except for of course marketing aimed at NASA.


#2207

He’s just a fan of that Star Trek where they find a car floating in space and it cranks right up.


#2208

Or maybe…
