Still not convinced anyone could mean the following seriously, but apparently, they don't know physics apart from gravity much better.

Naming spaceships after classic sci-fi is just, well...classic

My God, it's full of stars.
A swarm of twinkling old stars shines in a new view from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. This globular cluster, dubbed IC 4499, lies on the outskirts of the Milky Way.

There is so much space awesome here
In a blast from the space-age past, the National Archives released an awesomely retro 1965 advertisement for NASA's traveling outreach program, the Spacemobile.

How would you handle a 100-year trip to another star? SyFy's Ascension has some ideas. 
A spaceship powered by nuclear bombs secretly launched in the 1960s. A colony ship on 100-year journey to spread humanity to the stars. Meet the SyFy Channel's epic miniseries: 'Ascension.'

What is going on on Mars? The latest from our writer Tanya Lewis
The origins of organic matter found by Mars lander missions have long been debated, but a new study suggests a way to find out whether these chemicals of life came from the Red Planet or elsewhere.

Happy  Saturday, Internet. Let's celebrate by watching a baby hippo chase some birds: https://screen.yahoo.com/awesome-animals/baby-hippo-entertains-itself-chasing-084655538.html #hipposaregreat
Rhys Scott-Dawkins of endlesssummertours.co.za was visiting the Kruger National Park when he encountered a young hippo with a rather playful streak. The hippo kept himself busy chasing water fowl until his mother came out of the water to see what all the commotion was about! Credit: YouTube/endlesssummertours.co.za
