French Startup Sends Case Of Wine To Age In Space

The astronauts up at the International Space Station are getting it all: cookies, radiation vests, and now, a cask of red wine. Unfortunately, the wine isn't for drinking: a French startup (of course it's French) called Space Cargo Unlimited wanted to see how wine ages differently in space. The wine will be sent back to Earth in a year, when experts will be able to taste the space (or not) in the red wine. Maybe space-aged wine will become a delicacy. What's next? Space cookies

Cookie Oven Sent To ISS So Astronauts Can Bake Cookies

In the latest update of random things being sent to the International Space Station, the six astronauts living in the International Space Station (ISS) have been sent a cookie oven (which must be a lot more exciting than that time when they were sent cement). For the first time, astronauts will be able to bake cookies in space. I'm betting the prospect of eating fresh cookies is pretty exciting for them after months of eating packaged space food

NASA's Visualisation of a Black Hole is Lit

Ever since the first ever image of a black hole was taken, we've had a thing for them. Unfortunately, the famous image of the black hole is pretty low res (although it wasn't exactly an easy photo to take so we're not blaming anyone). However, NASA recently published a visualization of a black hole to help us imagine what a detailed photo of a black hole might look like when we're able to take more high res photos of it. The result is pretty incredible and our minds are bending - a lot. Check it out for yourself.

John Mayer Made This Fan's Dream Come True By Playing Their Guitar

So you're John Mayer. You've dazzled and crooned to crowds the world over. You're about to play "Gravity," one of your most legendary hits. How do you make it special? How about playing with a fan's guitar. And that is exactly what Meyer did. At a recent concert he played, a fan passed a guitar to the front, hoping Mayer would play it. 

He immediately obliged, much to the appreciation of the crowd, and continues playing the entire song with his fan's guitar. Not only did he play a set with it, but he signed the guitar and tuned it for the fan as well.

Well...kinda walking on water. With a special mixture of water and cornstarch, you can create what is referred to as a "non-Newtonian fluid," which is basically a fluid that doesn't act like how a fluid should act...get it? Anyways, fill a 2,100 gallon pool of this stuff, and you'll have people walking, crawling, and dancing all over it!

Could this be the closest anyone has ever flown above the Earth? Wingsuit pilot Brain Drake soars through the air in Chamonix, France with only a little more than a meter between him and the ground, defying gravity and certain death.
