Galaxy Print Wallpaper

Remember if “Get Him To The Greek” when P. Diddy wanted to cover the outside of his whole house in the furry wall? This is kind of how we feel about these galaxy mural wallpapers. Now only if someone made matching carpets… OH WAIT! Someone totally does.

Sounds Like A Bargain: Have Your Dead Ashes Tossed Into Low Earth Orbit For just $2,000.
Elysium Space are sending people to space for an obscenely cheap rate, but there’s a minor stipulation: you must be dead as shit and in cremated ash form. And they mix your ashes with a bunch of other peoples, so I hope you like sharing. Oh, and it’s not really space per se, but “low earth orbit,” which is basically space’s less attractive and less hip sister that you’d probably get it on with anyway if you were dead as shit and in cremated ash form.

So, NASA Found A Space Invader
Prepare the laser canons! NASA’s Hubble Telescope scoped out a harbinger of death and destruction headed right for Earth!

NASA explains that the gravitational field surrounding the galaxies works like a magnifying glass, brightening and stretching light from far away. So you’re seeing stretched and mirrored images—a phenomenon known as gravitational lensing—that just happens to look like a space invader. 

That’s what they WANT you to think!

Amazing Indie Space Sim Kerbal Space Program Gets a New Demo
For those of us who would love to explore space and build rockets, we usually are struggling to find something that focuses on that concept with as much intricacies as we want. Sure, there are a ton of great 4X games out there like Endless Space and even great indie hits like FTL, but there isn’t really anything out there that lets us feel like pioneers. Until now.
Kerbal Space Program (KSP) is becoming a bit of an indie juggernaut. The game lets you build rockets and planes however you want and launch them into space. If you did a bad job, your rocket will explode or your plane will fall from the sky.
However, that is just scratching the surface. Not only can you go from launch-pad to space (with no load times) but you can also pilot your ship across a complete solar system. You can even land on planets and explore them. However, you have to keep fuel and energy in mind. Luckily, you can also launch space stations that can help you refuel your ship.
KSP is a game unlike any other. The opportunities for creation are endless and it is a blast toying around with different ideas. The game is as complex or simple as you want it to be.
If you have ever wanted to try out KSP, you’re in luck. The devs just released a new demo that features the current version of the game. You can download it on the KSP download page. The game is still in Alpha but it being updated regularly. It is a fantastic game that had me addicted for hours, much like another popular indie sensation…

WARNING! A Huge Battleship Is Approaching Fast!
In case you weren’t already aware, we’re completely in love with shmups around these parts. One loyal reader even made us a Space Invaders clone starring our Albotapus mascot! So you can just imagine how absurdly warm and fuzzy our guts felt when we first laid eyeballs on this glitchy shmup boss battle design from Data Erase. You can scoop this freshness in a variety of styles over on Data Erase’s webstore.

NASA’s First New Space Suit In 20 Years Looks Awfully Familiar

With all the advancements in technology in the past five years alone, it blows my mind that it’s taken NASA 20 years to come up with a new space suit. Maybe it just took them a while to settle on the perfect design motif. To infinity, and beyond!

The Hip Side Of The Force

Ecuadorian designer Luis Mena made these hyper-cool Star Wars collages that would make for excellent prints, but, sadly, you’ll have to settle for admiring them in digital form.

An Animated Short Two Years in the Making

Two years for a video under four minutes? You’ll see why once you hit play. Countdown, by Céline Desrumaux, has super fast editing with a whole lot of animation going on. The audio from APPART goes perfectly with the visuals, too.

Buzz Aldrin Punched a Guy in the Face

Buzz Aldrin is either one of the biggest heros or biggest liars of all time. I’ll let you decide on that one. But the fact that a geriatric man punched a douchebag in the face makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.

Fans of Portal 2 can now travel through space with the Space Core in a fashion similar to Nyan Cat
By the way, you guys should totally play through Portal 2 if you haven’t.

Dude ties weather balloon to a video camera so he can see what outer space looks like.

Sure, 100,000 feet may not technically be considered outer space, but it’s still way higher than my apartment rooftop, so yeah.

Luke Geissbuhler equipped his with a GPS tracking thingamajig so that it could be found after it parachuted its way back down to Earth. it was found about 30 miles away.

Thinking of making my own weather balloon concoctions to trick people into thinking that aliens are sending us messages.
