Here's a friendly, easy-to-read article about a venerable space telescope. It's such a great read that you almost won't notice how much information it packs in.

Characteristically terrific work by my friend +Liz Landau.

I hope you're sitting down: Ted Cruz said something accurate.

(Related: anyone who wants to lay down a bet saying NASA will send an astronaut to Mars in the 2030s, I'll take your money.)

If a $2500 rover is still a bit rich for your blood, here's a much less expensive (still Pi-based) rover -- you can even 3D-print much of it. As a bonus, it's named after Mark Watney -- from Andy Weir's The Martian. :-D

The real Curiosity rover cost $2.5B. But now you can build your own for a mere $2500. Such a bargain! :-)

Note: contrary to the story, Curiosity sang "Happy Birthday" only once, not every year.

This is, of course, true: no reasonable person would believe Alex Jones. But it's less and less clear that the median person is reasonable. :-/ And even if the median person is, there's definitely a sizable plurality that isn't.

Dang it, and I was just about to nuke them, too.

This article floats the idea of charging anti-vaxxers a fee to help cover the costs of the inevitable public health cleanup. Now also hold them liable for manslaughter if anyone dies, and you've really got something.

In case you were wondering whether we live in the future, you can now download 19,000 hours of Apollo 11 audio. In other news, I'll be busy for the next 19,000 hours.

If you don't like math, but you like knitting ... then you like math. You just might not know it yet.
