2016-11-03T10:43:39+00:00

Never look directly at the sun! Unless you're NuSTAR, then it's totally okay. In fact if you are NuSTAR then you definitely should because you can get images like this. NuSTAR is the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array, NASA's high-energy X-ray telescope(s). It/they can safely look directly into the sun and [...]

2016-11-03T10:47:44+00:00

This is a fabulous shot of the Earth's bellybutton. And definite proof that its an innie; something that's been highly debated in scientific circles for decades. I believe it was Hubble himself who first postulated the Navel Recession Hypothesis and argued strongly for the Non-Protrusion theory. Wait, this just in...apparently [...]
