While most of us think of space exploration when we think of NASA, the organization actually has made thousands of contributions to the field of aeronautics over the years that go beyond launching rockets into space.
Redditor Mega_Dunsparce is one of those people who’s so good at a game he’s turned to ridiculous challenges to push his skills. Recently he used his mad chops in Kerbal Space Program to turn hilariously photoshopped airplanes into flying Kerbal spacecraft.
These days, everybody stores their videos “in the cloud.” Now some clever folks in the UK are actually projecting video on real clouds.
Recently, on the clouds floating over Nottingham, England, residents saw the spooky green image of a man riding a horse in the night sky.
NASA is very serious about sending humans to Mars someday. I can only hope that I am around to see that landing, it will be awesome. There are many challenges to putting us on Mars. One of the most basic issues is how to get enough food and water there to support exploration of the Red Planet.
