One can argue that cats are scientist. Always knocking down things testing and observing gravity for one. So obviously someone had to put two together and create a hilarious Facebook page dedicated to Cats in space, quoting famous scientist...
Boston Celtics Guard, Kyrie Irving just needs the people of the round earth to know that he's terribly sorry for being caught up with the Flat Earth movement because he's a "smartass individual"; BUT he's never quoted saying that he's not a flat-earther. Dude, come on.
We would like to say that you can't argue with photographic evidence but some people can and DO argue that the Earth is actually flat. If you're not a government clone of a celebrity (like Tila Tequila) or if you believe in science, you'll still love these amazing pictures of Earth from outer space.
The Boeing Starliner capsule, which is planning to transport people to and from the International Space Station in the near future, successfully completed an abort mission - although one of it's three parachutes failed to deploy. At the time, few photos or videos were taken of the capsule's short flight. New video footage has just emerged, and we've made some sweet GIFs so you can view it's journey in GIF form. If you want to know more about the Boeing Starliner capsule, read our comprehensive article about it. Otherwise, enjoy the GIFs!
Plans are already underway for the Von Braun space hotel, a rotating space station that will orbit the Earth and house tourists and researchers. The Gateway Foundation says that it will be up and running by 2025, but we have serious doubts about that. We think you're going to have to keep your holidays Earth-bound for now.

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?
As you might know, NASA's Curiosity Rover, a car-sized robot that snaps super cute selfies, has been roaming around Mars for seven years. It's purpose is to find life on the Red Planet, but in the meantime it's been taking chemical samples of the earth (is that what we call it?) on Mars and sending us back some cool photos. In the most recent installment of Mars photography, Curiosity took some black and white photos that are desolate, lonely and a little creepy. But what else could we expect from a planet that is devoid of any life (until we find it)? Check out Curiosity's latest photos below.
Boeing's Starliner capsule has just completed an abort test when a test dummy inside the capsule parachuted to Earth from almost a mile high. Although only two of three parachutes were deployed, NASA said that the test was successful. This is another step closer to getting more people in space and on other planets. And that's exciting.
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.
