The Cosmos Bed: My God, It’s Full of Stars
Right now the only way you can truly sleep among the stars is to suit up in a spacesuit and have somebody push you out into the black and that ain’t cool. The next best thing is to lie in a sleeping bag in the darkened countryside and stare up, but a bear might eat you.

Glow in the Dark Rockets & Planets Bedding: Sweet Dreams are Made of This
This bedding from Garnet Hill is pretty cool – especially if your kid(or you) are afraid of the dark. Night lights are cool, but when they burn out, you are left in total darkness and we all know that is when the boogeyman gets you.

NASA Will Pay up to $5000 per Month for Study Participants to Stay in Bed

Scientists Realize Massive Near-Earth Asteroid Is Actually a Comet after Three Decades
This story proves that sometimes even really smart people get things horribly wrong. For the last 30 years, astronomers have believed that a massive object known as Don Quixote was a near-Earth asteroid. In fact, the object was classified as the third largest near-Earth asteroid.

SpaceX Grasshopper Reusable Rocket Knows How to Park in Reverse

SpaceX Grasshopper Reusable Rocket Knows How to Park in Reverse
We’ve already invented a (partially) reusable spacecraft. But the rockets that were used to boost NASA’s space shuttles – and other spacecraft in general – were all designed for one-time use only. That makes space travel wasteful and expensive.

Amazing Space Scene Spray Painted on Floor: I Feel the Galaxy Move Under My Feet
Do you love space? I mean, really love space? Then live in it and paint a space scene on your floor like this guy did. This just might be the coolest graffiti art installation I have seen in a long time.

Let’s be honest, everything is more difficult in space than here on Earth. It’s hard enough just to get into space and bring all of the things humans need to survive. It’s an amazing technological feat for astronauts to live and work on the International Space Station in and of itself.
