Lockheed Martin Really Made a Space Perfume

Lockheed Martin Really Made a Space Perfume

I know that plenty of parents would like to send their kids to Mars, and if you’re gonna do that, do it right. Build them a rover to ride around in. Hell, just build them one to ride around on Earth. That’s what cool dads do. And Kris Temmerman is…

Floating Astronaut Light: I Want My MTV

Floating Astronaut Light: I Want My MTV
Who says your desk lamp has to be boring? You could get an old school brass lamp that says “I’m lame,” or you could get this lamp that has a moon base and a floating astronaut that glows. The design reminds me of the old MTV segues back when the…

SpaceX’s Starman and Tesla Roadster Have Gone Beyond Mars

SpaceX’s Starman and Tesla Roadster Have Gone Beyond Mars
Nine months is a long time; it’s long enough to have a baby. It’s also long enough for the Tesla Roadster and its Starman passenger to have traveled from the Earth orbit it was initially placed in, to beyond the orbit of Mars. SpaceX tweeted the milestone along with an…

Incredibly Rare Russian Moon Soil Samples Head to Auction

Incredibly Rare Russian Moon Soil Samples Head to Auction
Only a handful of men have ever walked on the Moon, and a very limited amount of soil and rock samples have ever returned to Earth. The rarity of these samples means that the vast majority of them are owned by the US and Russian governments –  as the two…

LED Space Fleece Blanket Keeps You Warm and Blinky

LED Space Fleece Blanket Keeps You Warm and Blinky
It’s starting to get cooler here in Colorado already. Mornings at altitude already require a jacket. That means that before you know it I’ll be channeling my dad and yelling at people about turning the furnace up too high and urging them to use blankets instead. Maybe if our blankets…

How NASA’s Parker Solar Probe Can Survive Inside the Corona of the Sun

How NASA’s Parker Solar Probe Can Survive Inside the Corona of the Sun
The sun is a crazy hot place. Just step outside in any of the summer months in Texas and you know this is true. The other day we talked a bit about the NASA Parker Solar Probe and how it would eventually become the fastest man-made object ever. At the…

NASA’s Parker Solar Probe Could Hit Speeds up to 430,000 mph

NASA’s Parker Solar Probe Could Hit Speeds up to 430,000 mph
NASA has been talking about how hard it is to get a probe or satellite to the Sun. Apparently, it would take 55 times more energy to get to the Sun than to Mars according to scientists. It’s so hard because the Sun has massive gravity and the Earth is…

Orion Nebula Blackout Blind Blinds You with Science

Orion Nebula Blackout Blind Blinds You with Science
The sun comes up REALLY early here in Colorado. I thought it was like 10 am last weekend, and it was only 6 am. I blame the house behind me with the mirror tint on the back windows, and the fact that Colorado is roughly 16 inches from the surface…

2001: A Space Odyssey Plush Dave Bowman: My God It’s Full of Stuffing

2001: A Space Odyssey Plush Dave Bowman: My God It’s Full of Stuffing
Can you believe that it’s been 50 years since the science fiction film 2001: A Space Odyssey premiered in theaters? It’s a far more esoteric movie than Star Trek or Star Wars, which is probably why there isn’t much in the way of merchandise to collect. So it’s nice whenever…

Elon Musk’s Latest Idea? Fly People Around the World on SpaceX Rockets

Elon Musk’s Latest Idea? Fly People Around the World on SpaceX Rockets
To be honest, I’m a bit of a cynic when it comes to Elon Musk’s “big ideas.” Sure it’s cool that he’s made some insanely fast electric cars at Tesla, but the cars have suffered from lots of reliability and build quality issues. In fact, a Tesla Model S that…
