youre gonna look so goddamn cool
I can’t fucking wait
SPOOKY SHIT OF THE DAY: Bash Back

I wanna be a mer-person
This is cool and all, but I want a functional one. These don’t look like they’re made for water use, and I wouldn’t want to go into the water with toxic paint. Can I get a simple, silver dolphin tail that isn’t painted and has a stiff, un-fancy fin? Oh, and some hand flippers too.
In response to one of those annoying “amazing russian space pencil” adverts, I made this handy infographic.
Those stupid Americans spent millions designing a pen that works in zero G because FUCKING GRAPHITE IS CONDUCTIVE AND THE POWDER GETS EVERYFUCKINGWHERE IN ZERO G THEN SHORTS OUT ALL YOUR LIFE SUPPORT NOT TO MENTION THAT DRY WOOD IS FLAMABLE AS FUCK IN PURE OXYGEN!!! Fuck you russia AND your pos rockets.
Btw, NO TAX DOLLARS were spent developing ball point pens that work in space. The owner of Fisher Pen Co., Paul C. Fisher, used HIS OWN MONEY to develop the pen to offer it to NASA. At the time, I’d say that was advertising money well spent.
HERE, go buy a REAL space pen direct from the original supplier, not these silly overpriced pencils that are FAR from perfect for use in space.
Oh wait, that one’s $55, but before you get your knickers in a twist about NASA spending $55 on a pen, these are only $5:
For longer distances, we do have the AU which is 1 earth’s distance from the sun.
But in the metric system, there is a specific set of prefixes that we use for every measurement - except METERS?! I realize that km may be a measurement more easy to relate to, much like miles are, but past 1000km, it’s no longer viable. And that’s specifically what the prefixes are FOR! So many times I’ve seen measurements for solar bodies ranging from 1000km to 100,000,000km for example. The whole point of a prefix is to avoid writing out all those damn zeros. It’s not 1,000km, it’s a MEGAMETER! It’s not a billion kilometers, it’s a TERAmeter!
Pluto is about 6Tm from the Sun. Jupiter is about 140Mm wide. New York and Chicago are about a megameter apart, but that’s the lowest distance where it’s still viable to say 1,000km. Otherwise, it loses all meaning.
Just a pool, disguised as a pond, with a trampoline instead of a diving board.
I wrote a paper about these kinds of pools several years ago for a class when they were just prototypes. These pools have a natural filtration system that run based on the plants that are in the pool that give the water nutrients that allow it to not only be crystal clear, but you are also able to drink the water because it becomes so clean. And the best part is that once the initial filtration system is installed and calibrated, it maintains itself and eliminates the need for chlorine or constant maintenance like salt water pools.
Our first close encounter with Pluto is less than a year away! Despite its reputation, we know so little about this beloved Kuiper belt object and its moons. That’ll all change when New Horizons starts beaming back detailed images and data next July.
…there was a spacecraft called Rosetta. Rosetta had been travelling in space for 10 years, towards a comet called 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenk
