Dater XY: Fun Is More Important Than Sex

How The Amazing Nerds At NASA Would Cook A Thanksgiving Turkey

Seriously, could NASA get any cooler? They’re landing rovers on Mars, mapping out the galaxy, and studying dark energy, all while rocking star-spangled mohawks. The folks over at Gizmodo were curious to see how those zany NASA scientists might use their high tech toys to cook a turkey this Thanksgiving.
