Spent the day taking in the shirt and shorts (apparently, I've lost some weight throughout the course of making this thing). Got the eagle pinned on, so all that's left is hand-sewing that to the shirt.

Aliens! 
Space headlines this week covered a variety of topics, including an upcoming meteor shower, the Hubble Space Telescope's 25th anniversary and the discovery of more evidence of liquid water on Mars.

Yeah, but they give a 10-25 year estimate for alien life every three years.

This is how I like my Wonder Woman. None of that New 52 nonsense.
Wonder Woman returns home to Themiscyra, but something is amiss upon the island: a great evil has awakened and will devastate the world once it escapes from prison. Can Diana stop it in time?

Screw the kids. I WANT TO PLAY THERE.
Kids sailing on the Disney Cruise Line now get to join the likes of 'Star Wars' heroes Han Solo and Chewbacca by piloting the Millennium Falcon while cruising the seas.

One iconic DC Comics superhero is about to have his secret identity revealed to the world. But who is he? And who is responsible for informing the world of his secret?

Black Widow FTW. Seriously, she's the only Avenger who doesn't have superpowers or needs a suit to fight the bad guys.
During a recent press tour by stars of Avengers: Age of Ultron, one interviewer decided to ask Mark Ruffalo some of the sexist questions often asked of Scarlett Johannson in such interviews.

Yeah, it's starting to get confusing.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is massive, but each television series and movie has a link and follows a chronological order. Here's a rundown of how you can watch the entire thing in chronological order.

Awesome comic with awesome characters. Go. Read. Now.
The 'My So-Called Secret Identity' graphic novel was so well-received that it's warranted a second volume. We chat with the creator of the series to find out what's in store for volume two.

Are you good at geography?
NASA Astronaut Scott Kelly wants to test your geography, by posting photos on Twitter of Earth taken from the International Space Station. Winners of each daily challenge wins an autographed copy of that photo.

Fans of the series asked for this and NBC listened. Now go prove to NBC that this show is worth saving! Go watch. Tell everyone you know to watch. #SaveConstantine  
'Constantine' showrunner Daniel Cerone recently announced that all 13 episodes of the first season of the series is now online. Watching (or re-watching) these episodes could help get the series a season two.

I bet Marvel is feeling rather stupid about the lack of Black Widow in their Avengers merchandise now. DC wins this round.
In a move that embraces its growing female audience, DC Comics plans on releasing a series of comics and action figures targeted at girls age 6 to 12 featuring iconic DC superheroes.
