She’s perfect in every way!
Just what you need: another degree.
Eagles, butterflies, and rotten eggs, oh my!

In space, nobody can hear you scream, “bull$#*!”
You’ve heard about the Big Bang. But how will everything as we know it end?
It does WHAT on Uranus?!
These are the winners of the Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2013 competition. They will take your breath away.
In space, no one can hear you scream. But oh, you’ll be screaming, because it sounds like it’s populated by plasma demons.

It’s a great big universe, and we’re all really puny. VISTA put together this staggering nine gigapixel photo with 84 million stars and counting.
Whoa. The Royal Observatory has released its annual astronomy photography awards. Here are some of the amazing honorees.
To paraphrase Stephen Hawking, “We have to get off this rock, or we will die.” We’ve got approximately 3.5 billion years left so let’s speed this along.
