More new images from Ceres, including the odd bright spot, now with a smaller companion.

Who wouldn’t want to go explore an alien sea? It seems that NASA would certainly like to, and the agency has unveiled a new submarine design to hopefully do just that one day. The submarine would be sent to Saturn’s largest moon, Titan, to dive into one of the large liquid methane seas on the …

Does anyone know why the StumbleUpon sharing app always seems to link to a "likes" listing now instead of to the page to submit the link? Annoying.

The Dawn spacecraft has almost reached the dwarf planet Ceres, and a lot more detail can be seen as it gets closer. The odd bright spots which have puzzled scientists for a long time now can also be seen more clearly for the first time. What was thought to be one spot in this crater …

So there's nothing in space except gas balls and barren rocks. On behalf of all astronomers and scientists, glad you cleared that up, Pat. Ugh.

The argument presented relies on the validity of three assumptions:

1. There are only barren rocks out there.  Was not the earth a barren rock before the 3rd day?

2. Life was created, and that it is incapable of evolving.

3. That anyone who is actually working and interested in understanding the universe gives a rats ass what a senile old man believes a 2500 year old book of preliterate fairy tails says.

The New Horizons spacecraft, on course for a historic encounter with Pluto this summer, is now close enough to see two of its smaller moons for the first time. The new views also come 85 years after the discovery of Pluto by astronomer Clyde Tombaugh on Feb. 18, 1930. The images were taken between Jan. …

I've long liked Brian Cox, but... how can anyone say there is a definite lack of extraterrestrial life on other planets, when they are now being found by the thousands and estimated to be in the billions in our galaxy alone, yet we still know so little about any of them? It's not clear whether he means life could never have evolved elsewhere to become complex or could never have even started anywhere else to begin with. Just to note, he is a physicist, not a biologist.
The presenter and scientist blames a series of 'evolutionary bottlenecks' for the lack of extraterrestrial life on other planets, despite there being a vast number of them in the galaxy.
