This is a visualization imagining the International Space Station orbiting earth at 10,000-feet instead of 254 miles. For reference, most commercial flights cruise between 33,000 and 42,000 feet, so this is comparatively low. AND FAST. Around 17,150MPH (37,600km/h) fast. It really zooms. It’s crazy to think the astronauts up there
Note: If you’re looking for some bitchin’ desktop backgrounds you can get super high-res versions of the Hubble’s 1995 image HERE, 2004 image HERE, and James Webb’s most recent shot HERE. Now let’s play space rangers! The Pillars of Creation, made famous by the Hubble Space Telescope’s 1995 and 2004
This is a car sunscreen featuring cat versions of the main cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation. You know, because there’s a market for that. Available on Amazon (affiliate link), the officially licensed 64″ x 32″ sunscreen fits most cars (but not spaceships), and is sure to let everyone
This is a visualization imagining you’re a beam of light leaving the sun and traveling out of our solar system at the speed of light. I mean what other speed would you be traveling, you are a beam of light after all. And I mean that too — you’re a
This is a video of Captain Picard performing a song and dance on the Enterprise bridge as a tribute to Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry. Apparently the clip was shot as a surprise for Roddenberry back in 1991, and appeared as a bonus scene in the Season 5 DVD set.
Note: If you search for NASA DART on Google you get an Easter Egg. NASA successfully smacked an asteroid with a spacecraft traveling at 14,000 MPH in an attempt to alter its trajectory in a first-ever test of planetary defense, should an asteroid ever be discovered that’s on a collision
This is a 10-hour video of Jupiter rotating in real time, completing one full revolution in the process. Now don’t expect a tilt-a-whirl here, it takes ten hours to complete one rotation, so it’s slow to the naked eye. But to the eyes wearing a sexy lace thong like mine
Because where better to look for fresh beats than beyond our own corner of the galaxy, NASA has released ‘Black Hole Remix’, audio from a distant galaxy cluster. Or possibly just the sound of a billion UFOs chugging along in the space in-between. Either way, it beats whatever I just
