Attention space nuts! You don’t want to miss this awesome set revealed by LEGO: the LEGO Creator Expert 10266 NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander. It is happening and looks damn fabulous!

Mind Blown: Impossibly Geometric Icebergs Spotted In Antarctica

Our impression of icebergs are, they are of irregular shape, or so we thought. It turns out that nature is quite an architect herself with the ability to create impossibly geometric icebergs too, such as the one you see here. That’s right. That flat piece of white object with almost perfectly straight edges is an iceberg. It is so flat and perfectly rectangular that it looks like it has some kind human intervention, but in reality, that was the nature’s work. Continue reading Mind Blown: Impossibly Geometric Icebergs Spotted In Antarctica

Uh, Houston. We Have A Problem. I Left My GoPro’s SD Card At Home!

I used to think that astronauts are the best of the best. The elite among the elites. As such, my impression of astronauts is, they are master of many trades, including dealing with mundane things like, you know, GoPro camera. Apparently that does not seem to be the case. A NASA astronaut recently became the perfect specimen that proves otherwise. Continue reading Uh, Houston. We Have A Problem. I Left My GoPro’s SD Card At Home!

NASA New Rover Tire Is Airless, Returns To Original Shape After Deformation

Automakers share the pain of flat tires with motorists and that is why we have run flat tires. And that’s here on Earth where emergency vehicle services are always a phone call away. Now, imagine the same thing happen when the vehicle is, say, 33.9 million miles away on Mars. Surely, NASA did not have team of robotic AAA on standby there and so, when wheels are damaged, they are damaged, end of story for the Mars-roaming rover and that’s no cool. Continue reading NASA New Rover Tire Is Airless, Returns To Original Shape After Deformation

NASA’s Playlist Of Sounds From Space Is Apt For Sci-Fi-themed Halloween Party

Are you going to have a sci-fi-themed Halloween party? Well, if so, you will want these spooky sounds recorded in space by NASA as your soundtrack. Like, seriously. Be warned though, these sounds are really, really spooky. The level of spookiness cannot be overstated. I have listened to all the tracks in the playlist and all I can say that they sound more paranormal than space-ish. Aptly entitled Spooky Sounds from Across the Space, the playlist on Soundcloud includes 22 tracks pulled from NASA’s archive of sounds recorded in outer space by the various probes and orbiters, and therefore do not expect sweet, varying mood, orchestrated music from Contact.
