Friday Fun: Space Edition!

It’s payday, which means my husband and I will order a slightly fancy pizza tonight – leftovers be damned!  But, the fact that in mere hours my stomach will be filled with half of a large pizza got me thinking of a different kind of space…the vastness of it all…the infinite number of pizzas that might be in OUTER space. Just what the heck is going on out there?

Well, this week, quite a bit.

Extremophile, take me to your leader.

We're not alone. Bill Nye former Science Guy says so.  'Nuff said.

But, the Science Guy of the last several moment, Neil DeGrasse Tyson is sort my favorite person lately. He wrote a book. And by golly, I might read it.


The International Space Station (yeah, that's still a thing) is a super dangerous place to be because the Earth's orbit has a littering problem. Read all about it over on The Beast. And check out the authors profile pic. The way he's handling that phone...that's hot.

Attention nerds, NASA wants you to help them do their job! Basically, you go to Hubble's Flickr page, you edit some photos and then submit them to a contest for an iPad. I can think of less convoluted ways to get free Photoshop work, Government. Read more about it, or don't. Whatever, I'm bored of heavenly celestial clouds and Godlike nebulae.

And finally, my favorite outsider artist that's got a thing for this particular redhead (yeah, he totes hit on my once, jealous?), Daniel Johnston has, I can only assume, been coerced into making an iPad game. Behold - Space Ducks. Quick, someone give me $700 so I can review this game!

Have a great weekend, everybody!
