I love seeing new details revealed as New Horizons closes in on Pluto.
 
Come fly with our New Horizons spacecraft on its approach to Pluto! Images show Pluto and its largest moon as the spacecraft closes in on the system for a July 14 flyby. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1LUF1Fk

I love watching the conspiracy theorists heads explode as they deny our scientific advancement in space.

Yer Blues.  Occasionally I find something on Youtube that just knocks my socks off.
Check out this piece of brilliance.  I never knew this performance existed.

This is a really interesting little page. Far better than all those stupid Buzzfeed quizzes, give this a try and find out things about you.

Poetry doing what it should - making you feel.  This one gets me every time.

Sad to think, but reassuring that they created a gas mask for babies during wartime. That is the real deal. Even scarier than the best Doctor Who episode.

Good grief!  Texas takes another bold step toward total asshattery.
The books contain information challenged by academics, that critics say is making education far too political.

It's been a whole year since this happened, but it's still my favourite Google+ interaction ever  :)

Superb.
 
Fly through the #Hubble25 anniversary image of star cluster Westerlund 2 in 3-D!

This visualization provides a three-dimensional perspective on Hubble's 25th anniversary image of the nebula Gum 29 with the star cluster Westerlund 2 at its core. The flight traverses the foreground stars and approaches the lower left rim of the nebula Gum 29. Passing through the wispy darker clouds on the near side, the journey reveals bright gas illuminated by the intense radiation of the newly formed stars of cluster Westerlund 2. Within the nebula, several pillars of dark, dense gas are being shaped by the energetic light and strong stellar winds from the brilliant cluster of thousands of stars. Note that the visualization is intended to be a scientifically reasonable interpretation and that distances within the model are significantly compressed.
