Because... science!
 
Valentines, tuxedos, excited waddling—our penguin colony is packed with crazy love today!

African penguins collect any available material to line their nests—in this case, felt valentines. Collected mostly by male birds, they're then offered to females (or placed in nests) to encourage breeding.

Recently, NASA and friends took the largest photo ever, topping 1.5 billion pixels and more than 4 GBs. If you want an exercise in humility, here's a video that gives you a tour of a mere 100 million stars in the Andromeda Galaxy (M31).

For the nerds, Andromeda has more than 1 trillion stars in total, compared to ~400 billion in our on Milky Way. To get a perspective on the magnitude of that, if our eyes could collect enough light to see it end-to-end, it would appear not as a fine fuzzy point of light, but as a mass six times the length of the full moon.

Anyone know of a sweet tool to manage #github  issues in bulk? Something SQL-esque would be awesome, but an app would be pretty sweet too. Thanks!

What a great photo.
 
Playfully called the 'Pacman Nebula' because of its overall shape, NGC 281 is about 10,000 light-years away in the constellation Cassiopeia. Learn more: http://buff.ly/1A0YeiV
