The European Space Agency used one of the cameras on Rosetta’s Philae lander to snap this selfie, with comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko visible 31 miles away. The image captures a side of the Rosetta spacecraft and one of its 45-ft-long solar wings.

Hilarious slow-motion video turns Neil deGrasse Tyson into a stoner

China’s Yutu rover has landed on the Moon

President John F Kennedy was killed 50 years ago today. I keep seeing the shooting footage going around the web. I’d rather post this.

NASA’s new Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution Mission, or MAVEN, launches into space for a mission designed to better understand Mars’ atmosphere. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).

Japan Has Invented A Space Cannon:

The space cannon is to be mounted on the Hayabusa-2 vehicle, which will carry it to the asteroid, which orbits between Earth and Mars. This is essentially a kinetic impact weapon that relies on an explosive charge to launch a 4lb slug into the surface. The spacecraft will release the weapon, allowing it to float downward while it takes cover on the opposite side of 1999JU3.

I love that part in gravity when Sandra Bullock enters the Earth’s atmosphere and travels back in time to prehistoric Earth to fight dinosaurs…
My GRAVITY Review:


First off I love Alfonso Cuaron and will watch any movie he makes after CHILDREN OF MEN. That film is perfect and one of my favorites. I couldn’t wait to see Gravity in IMAX 3D. 

This could easily be one of the best IMAX 3D films ever made. I went to the Smithsonian and saw the Hubble 3D film a year ago and was blown away. That inspired Cuaron to make Gravity. You could really see where he borrowed visual elements from that documentary. 

This was also one of the rare movies where I actually flinched multiple times at debris flying at the camera. 

Sandra Bullock pulled off a great performance in a really tough role. 

This could have easily been a flop but, once again, Alfonso Cuaron proves he knows what he’s doing. 

Go check out Gravity but make sure you see it in IMAX 3D. That’s the only way to go!
