I’ve been staring at this photo of the Perseid meteor shower streaking across the milky way over the Lindisfarne Castle in the UK for the past 20 minutes. I guess I should actually start working soon, but damn, it’s so beautiful that I had to share. Oh, and just in case you want to catch some sweet meteor action for yourself, the Perseids will be visible for the next 10 days or so. Get out there and take a look tonight! [Daily Mail]

Apparently in 1962, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (that’s NASA) had no interest in sending women into space. They were also pretty sure that they would never need such a ridiculous program. Ladies! In space! LOL!  Check out this letter, which says, “We have no existing program concerning woman astronauts nor do we contemplate any such plan.” The level of certainty with which NASA assured this applicant that they had no need for female astronauts must be more than a little embarrassing to look back on.

Turns out, we’ve been going about this whole traveling to outer space thing all wrong. We didn’t have to become an astronaut or save up millions of dollars to get a seat on Richard Branson’s moon flight. Adult film star Coco Brown (sometimes known as Honey Love) figured out how to make that shit happen. If all goes as planned, in March 2014, the 34-year-old will be the first porn star in space. For the reasonable price of $100,000, Brown was invited aboard one of SpaceXC’s flights (Space XC is a private company in the Netherlands). To prepare for the journey to outer space, Brown has been training in Martian, Lunar and Zero G conditions. Before liftoff, she will have to complete training on a Desdemona G-force Simulator and the Albatross Jet, an aircraft that replicates space re-entry. But here’s the kicker: she’s not planning to perform any zero gravity space sex… Keep reading »

Last week, NASA scientists predicted that they would discover Earth’s universal twin within a year. Well, they made good on that promise and way early. Wednesday, the Kepler telescope found KOI, short for Kepler Object Interest, a very promising candidate for Earth twindom. Not the name I would have chosen, but I’m not complaining. We have a twin!

There are some minor differences between Earth and KOI. (It’s more of a fraternal twin than an identical one.) While it has a sun that it orbits, far away enough to be fit for human life, it’s about 50 percent larger than Earth and circles its sun in about 242 days instead of 365. Yikes, that means you would age faster. Keep reading »
