Space is a hard place for humans to survive. We constantly need water, food, and protection from radiation, and then there is the little fact that space has no air, food, or water just floating around for us to use.
Apparently people were super excited about these Air Jordan 11 sneakers. You can see why. These awesome shoes sport a moon landing theme. They were supposedly created by Spanish shoe company sivasdescalzo and were set to debut on December 28.
I have talked before about SpaceX and its woes in trying to land the first stage of one of its Falcon 9 rockets. The company has been trying to land the first stage successfully to try to make space flight cheaper and more attainable to anyone interested.
I like unique Christmas ornaments, especially ones that reflect my geeky side. I also like handcrafted glass, so when I saw these celestial ornaments from, I was very intrigued.
Each of these ornaments comes from Plus Alpha Glass, the studio of artist Tomizu Satoshi, and is a true work of art.
See this dude right here? He’s not Lex Luthor. He’s NASA engineer Brian Muirhead. Brian says the plans that the Rebels fought so hard to get and the evil Empire worked hard to design and build are crap.
If you were ever going to have a celestial themed party, you want your snacks served in these bowls. I’d totally put foods that go with each planet inside the bowls. Like Mercury would have incredibly hot salsa.
Jupiter’s bowl would be filled with bean dip, Saturn with cheerios and so on.
Man, I wish I had the kind of talent it takes to create a cool arcade cabinet like this. But at least I can live vicarously through them. This NASA themed arcade cabinet looks like it belongs on the space station or at the very least in some NASA break room somewhere.
This beautiful gaming cabinet was created by Imgur user scoodidabop of Paradox Arcade Systems.
Last year, we checked out an awesome concept for a LEGO model of the Apollo 11 spacecraft and the Eagle Lunar Module. Here’s a great complementary concept from LEGO Ideas members saabfan and whatsuptoday – a model of the mission’s Saturn V rocket.
They are proposing two variants for their set: a basic set and a deluxe set.
A pair of space geeks recently set about creating what they claim is the first true-to-scale physical model of our solar system. The duo of Wylie Overstreet and Alex Gorosh headed out to a dry lake bed in Nevada to create their project with the goal of showing us just how vast our own solar system is.
The guys started by placing an inflatable ball at the center point to represent the Sun, then placed a marble-sized Earth one scale astronomical unit from the it – in this case, about 577 feet.
Today when we build satellites, construction has to be done on Earth, the satellite is placed in a rocket, shot into orbit, and then goes through automated deployment all while we hope things work just fine.
NASA has announced a new virtual experience that will let you get behind the controls of the Curiosity rover, without risking crashing it into a Martian ditch. The tool is called Experience Curiosity and it is an interactive website built using actual data gathered from Curiosity and the MRO.
With the tool you can drive Curiosity around the red planet, use its tools, and view the planet through its cameras.
Astronauts on the International Space Station get up to some cool experiment. Sometimes these experiments have limited scientific value, but look really cool. Take this video from the ISS shot with a fancy RED 4K camera.
Astronaut Terry Virts first uses a syringe to drizzle a big orb of water into the room.
We recently featured some awesome solar system jewelry by Lost in Space Jewelry. Now, we’ve teamed up with Melissa Adams, the artist behind the collection to give away a couple of her very special pieces.
Two lucky readers will end up winning a prize from her collection.
