I just got a twittering account and so far I’ve subscribed to Neil deGrasse Tyson, the Mars Rover, and Jewel Staite. Good start I think.
Bunny hopping on snow.
that bunny is snow
Snow has become sentient. What hath science wrought?
This colorful view from NASA’s Cassini mission is the highest-resolution view of the unique six-sided jet stream at Saturn’s north pole known as “the hexagon”. This movie, made from images obtained by Cassini’s imaging cameras, is the first to show the hexagon in color filters, and the first movie to show a complete view from the north pole down to about 70 degrees north latitude.

The custom cut half round stones came in! Progress!
Unfortunately all of our man power is being put behind existing Christmas orders and turning the cranks that power our lights.
I’M SCREAMING BECAUSE ITS PAUL MCGANN AND A DALEK
CAN YOU GET ANYMORE ADORABLE
THIS IS WHY HE LOST THE JOB AS THE TIME WAR DOCTOR. DAMN PAPARAZZI.
DWM confirms it. Matt Smith is the Doctor’s final regeneration. Says so right on the cover. I’m very excited for this now.
ELEVEN IS THIRTEEN!!! ELEVEN IS THIRTEEN!!! THIS IS NOT A DRILL!!!
For those of you that are confused, this is how Moffat is counting the lives of the Doctor
Wait—When did Moffat move Matt Smith from being the 11th Doctor to the 13th??
My only real complaint about Clara Oswald—or probably more accurately Jenna Coleman is how she jab-types everything. She jabs too fast at keys that it’s hard to believe she’s hitting anything with accuracy.
WHY ARE PEOPLE NOT MORE EXCITED ABOUT SPACE. THERE IS A PLANET MADE COMPLETELY OUT OF DIAMONDS AND A HUGE ASS RAIN CLOUD FLOATING AROUND IN SPACE THAT IS SO COOL.
Doctor Who references aside, there is a storm on the pole of Saturn that has corners. It’s a hexagon.
They’ve discovered water on Mars (it’s in the ground) (Yes, Doctor Who again).
NASA, perhaps after watching too many space movies, is developing an ion engine that would make a trip to Mars 33 days instead of 6-7 months.
The “Grand-Design” galaxy is so big and so old that our current understanding of physics cannot explain it. As in, modern physics says that this galaxy should not exist at all. The knowledge that this galaxy exist is forcing scientists to rework our understanding of the universe.
A couple of decades ago we knew of 9 planets. Now, we know of thousands. Granted, we demoted one in our own solar system, but what was once believed to be a unique characteristic to our sun is now believed to be common among the many stars out there. They all have clever names like “Kepler 78b”. Okay, fine, you try to name thousands of planets! The Ancient Greeks had a finite number of good God names.
There are so many stars in a galaxy and so many galaxies in the universe that to give an estimate of how many stars there are you’d have to ask a child. “A shmamillionboogerillion” stars. Most count estimates are disproven years later to be too small and at one point was tripled.
The Andromeda Galaxy is on a collision course with our own Milkyway Galaxy, and we’re the smaller of the two. The two Galaxies will combine into one. There is so much empty space in a galaxy that they don’t believe that any stars will actually collide.
Jupiter’s magnetic field is so large that a car radio tuned to a dead station can sometimes hear it.
You know how when you turn off the lights and it takes awhile for your eyes to adjust? Imagine infinitely adjusting over 10 days. In the mid-90s the Hubble space telescope was pointed to what was believed to be an empty part of the sky. They found somewhere between 2,000 to 3,000 galaxies.
The Voyager satellites, who we sent out of the solar system, have recorded that space has a roar and no one knows what the source of the “Space Roar” is.
But the biggest mystery of them all is WHY AREN’T PEOPLE MORE EXCITED ABOUT SPACE???
The coolest article that has ever been written about me or my designs.
The guaranteed way to get me to never see a video on Tumblr is to demand I see it without telling me what it is. Under no circumstances am I going to say “What this?? A video! On the internet?? THAT I HAVEN’T SEEN!?”
