The Hubble Telescope Gave Us an Incredible Look at Saturn's Rings and Moons

Amazing what a mere collection of water and ice and a few rocks can turn into. Saturn's rings are one of the most incredible sights in the night sky, and in space overall. Though their make up is unremarkable, since the 1970s when the Pioneer and Voyager spacecraft visited the system and gave us our first close-up look. 

What's more amazing is that unlike many other celestial bodies in our universe, that we need to physically reach in order to get a clear picture of, Saturn is close enough that we can get images like those below.

The Next Mars Mission Is Going To Include a Space Helicopter

That is not a typo. NASA has been hard at work developing the technology for the next mission to Mars. Part of that are the modules that will be part of the rover. An autonomous helicopter would be able to take pictures never seen before, and reach areas that the rover on the ground, would take far longer to reach, and might not even be accessible.

Extra Extra Read All About It - NASA Boss Thinks Pluto IS A Planet

Though downgraded to dwarf planet status, Pluto has been on the comeback trail of late. Many issues arose with the reclassification in 2006, including that only 424 of the 9000 members of the international organization in charge of making such decisions voted. In addition, immediately after the resolution, hundreds of planetary scientists petitioned against the changed classification. The problem began when the body changed the definition of what constitutes a planet, and due to Pluto lacking several of these features, it was demoted.

A recent mission to Pluto by NASA called New Horizons, recently gave us our closest and clearest look of Pluto and the surrounding planetary bodies in its area and orbit. 

NASA Administrator goes on record stating Pluto is a planet. 13 years to the day that Pluto was reclassified, scientists reexamine the evidence.

Super Blunt Twitter Thread Demystifies Pooping & Peeing In Space

When  Hugo-Award winning writer Mary Kowal penned a New York Times essay about gender bias in space, she did not expect a wealth of responses claiming that women we kept from space travel due to a lack of adequate bathroom technology. The concept that only women would face issues relieving themselves was so preposterous that Kowal took to Twitter in hopes of enlightening the masses with some serious space potty history. 

In the thread, Kowal manages to destroy some seriously absurd bathroom-related gender bias and teach us a whole lot about the process of pooping and peeing in zero gravity. It's an informative yet wild and wildly funny ride, and really leaves us with the desire to observe a glove of purple piss floating out of a space toilet. If Kowal schooled you as hard as she did us, give her a follow on Twitter. She's got loads more wisdom to share.

NASA Woman Claps Back At Dude Assuming She's Just The Receptionist

Yikes. Planetary Scientist, Dr. Lauren Mc Keown, shared an short and painful conversation she had on the dating app Hinge. The man who messaged Dr. Mc Keown seemed to have a strong opening line, bringing up how incredibly cool it was that she works at NASA (and honestly, it literally can't get any cooler than that), but soon ruins any chance being demeaning her intelligence and assuming she's the receptionist. 

Excuse me

Even though he 'claims' it was a joke, we totally stand behind Dr. Mc Keown's response.

These Stupid Black Hole Memes Are Still Going Strong And Driving Memers Batsh*t Crazy

If you've been in the dark (ha, get it?) about the news lately, then you may have missed the announcement yesterday that the first-ever images of a black hole were captured - a feat that many scientists believed was impossible until recently. 

While this news is obviously interesting AF to nearly anyone with eyes, memers seem to care more about the fact that the image itself is a little more blurry than they'd like. That, and the fact that the cloudy pic has been making for some pretty great (and very stupid) dank memes.

And in case you missed our first round of these fresh and totally ridiculous black hole memes, check 'em out here! Or check out this hilarious rare steak meme that has found a resurgence in usage.

Tumblr Thread Captures The Stupid Realities Of Scientific Language

Scientists and technicians go through a lot of time and effort in order to make their reports sound as science-y and official as possible. However, that doesn't undo the fact that people screw up every day. What's left is people trying to come up with official sounding statements for "I dunno, I screwed up man." Chalk it up to tumblr to overcomplicate things. Check this out for a Tumblr report on how cute humans are.
