Astronaut Has to Let Thousands of Dollars in Camera Gear Burn Up on Reentry

Astronaut Has to Let Thousands of Dollars in Camera Gear Burn Up on Reentry
Astronauts take some really cool photos of the space station and other stuff when they are in orbit. I always sort of assumed that the cameras used were already on the ISS and whoever wanted to shoot some cool space pics would just borrow one.

In Space… No One Can Hear You Fart
Anyone with kids knows that it can be a challenge to teach them to use the toilet. My daughter always got the sequence wrong, wipe, then flush. She finally got it down. I can only imagine how hard it would be to drop a deuce if you live on the ISS.

NASA Studying Ground Laser for Orbital Clean Up

NASA Studying Ground Laser for Orbital Clean Up
NASA is tired of all that space junk that’s orbiting our planet. The myriad of broken satellites and other junk orbiting poses a hazard to functioning satellites that are in orbit. A tiny little chunk of anything traveling at orbital speeds is enough to destroy a satellite and possibly harm any spacecraft or astronauts that are in the way.

This is awesome. A team of scientists at the Indian Space Research Organization has discovered what they claim to be a massive underground cave on the moon. The scientists think that in the future the cave might even possibly be able to be used as a moon base.

One slightly used 1961 Vostok space capsule is going to be up for grabs in a short while. Have you got the money to buy it? Probably not, but the Vostok 3KA-2 is one heck of a piece of space history.

Space Auction: Own the Playboy Centerfold that Flew on an Apollo Mission

Space Auction: Own the Playboy Centerfold that Flew on an Apollo Mission
I can’t think of the moon or space without thinking about how huge of an achievement it was for the US to put men on the moon in the 60’s with the tech they had to work with.

Wired Interviews Mike “Death Star” Brown, Killer of Pluto
You probably remember back in 2007 when a bunch of astronomers got together and convinced the world that Pluto was no longer a planet. That single-handedly made a change in science books around the world. One of the dudes responsible for killing Pluto is Mike Brown.

Spacex Reveals Secret Cargo That Went Into Space on Its Dragon Spacecraft

Spacex Reveals Secret Cargo That Went Into Space on Its Dragon Spacecraft

Russia to Spend $2b to Clean Up Space Junk by Knocking Old Satellites Out of Orbit

Russia to Spend $2b to Clean Up Space Junk by Knocking Old Satellites Out of Orbit
I grew up in the 80’s, when grownups seemed to talk about the Cold War and how evil Russia was all the time. The Russians were always the bad people in the flicks I watched too.

Geeks Launch Paper Airplane From 90,000 Feet

Geeks Launch Paper Airplane From 90,000 Feet
I have flown my fair share of paper airplanes during my days. As high-tech as in ever went was putting a paper clip on them for extra weight though. Some geeks got together and built this spaceworthy paper airplane from paper and straws with a 3-foot wingspan.

Rick’s in Spaaaaaace…..

Rick’s in Spaaaaaace…..
Recently, Zug pulled a little prank – in outer space. It’s probably not the first prank in space as I bet the astronauts aboard the ISS and other spacecrafts have already pulled some pranks on each other.
