This gem of a throwback depicts Commander David Scott of the Apollo 15 showing what happens when you drop a hammer and a feather at the same time, when out there chilling on the moon. Basically, as per Galileo's findings, every object falls at the same rate regardless of mass.

Tumblr Thread: What Exactly Han Solo Was Smuggling

With a lot of additions to the Star Wars universe, and the directive that Star Wars should be okay for kids, there was some internal confusion over what "spice" is or does. That is of course until a certain writer had a hilariously direct conversation with George Lucas. People have made some other very humorous and poignant observations on Star Wars, like how Darth Vader is so extra, or this Star Wars fan calling out people's complaints. And for good measure here's a twitter thread on how different Star Wars characters take their coffee.

AskReddit Thread: Scariest Space Facts And Mysteries

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the scariest space facts and mysteries that people know about. It's easy to forget that we're on a giant rock flying and falling and spinning madly on through space. I mean, we forget to look up at the sky enough as it is. Maybe a convenient forgetfulness.

Guys You'll Meet At The Galactic Federation

ICYMI: The Jerusalem Post recently shared an article about a former Israeli space chief who claimed that the US and Israel have been in contact with aliens known as "The Galactic Federation." Said aliens reportedly stopped President Trump from revealing their existence to humanity because they don't think humanity is ready just yet. Twitter went absolutely wild in response to the article, brainstorming the unlimited possibilities that the galaxy holds.  As the topnotch memes on Twitter suggest, the universe holds infinite possibilities - including men that are quite literally otherworldly.

The future is now. It's time to quit re-downloading dating apps. It's the same trash that you went through last month. Evidently, the earthly men are useless, and we are sick and tired of their shit. Ladies, let's ditch this polluted popsicle stand known as Earth. 

Hop on my space shuttle and meet the new eligible bachelors of the Galactic Federation.

Fun Informative Twitter Thread On Bathroom Breaks In Space

It's a lot easier said than done when it comes to taking a leak in outer space. I guess you'd expect nothing less. Everything seems to have an innate tendency to grow far more complicated as you drift further away from this particular rock that's flying through space. Mary Robinette Kowal provides an equally entertaining and informational Twitter thread on the backstory surrounding astronauts' experiences with trying to functionally use the restroom while on missions in outer space.

They say you can't get to Mars without breaking a few eggs. While the most recent SpaceX Starship attempt didn't exactly have a perfect landing, watching the thing from far away lets you see exactly how it straight up looks like a sideways building falling to the earth before very nearly re-righting itself and (almost) sticking the landing.

The Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico collapsed and shattered in a disheartening moment for astrophysicists everywhere. The main cables holding up the massive 900 ton receiver failed and the whole thing collapsed into the Gregorian dome. Groups are focusing on getting funds from the U.S. Congress to rebuild the observatory.

Tumblr Thread: Humans Doing Cool Space Things

Tumblr did some research on the fastest manmade object. By the sound of it this manhole cover was launched into space with such monstrous force that it could've punched a hole through a planet. Maybe the aliens will touch base some day in the future, and ask us why we went and did something like that.

SpaceX's Starship Has More Test Flights Planned

SpaceX's Starship is the rocket that will change everything. Eco-friendly, able to carry cargo and eventually passengers, and most importantly, reusable, this rocket is promising to change space travel forever. Sadly, booking a ticket to space is still a long way away. But we are able to watch the test flights of the Starship rocket, which are admittedly pretty cool. It's not every day you get to watch the baby steps of rocket science.

If you want to launch your own rocket (or watch one being launched), check out these GIFs of Estes model rockets being launched. Or if you feel like making your own (kind of) rockets, check out this comprehensive guide for making some awesome paper airplanes
