The mission this Lightyear company and team has is simply amazing (for several reasons if you ask me). Just watch the video and judge for yourself. It takes less than 2 minutes.

"The Lightyear One charges itself with clean solar power. In sunny conditions it can drive for months without charging, a truly unique capability."

Imagine that...

Awesome! A virtual robot automating homes and forming a companion of sorts. #Gatebox aims to fill that role by offering a virtual home robot in the form of a projected 3D character living inside a glass tube. Just watch the video to see what that looks like...

The US Army Is Working On A Real-Life Hoverbike.
Just imagine riding it.

"The question on everyone's minds by this point is whether or not the speederbike chase scene on the Forest Moon of Endor can be recreated in reality." +I fucking love science

Philae found! ^^
#Philae has been found! Rosetta’s lander Philae has been identified in #OSIRIS narrow-angle camera images taken on 2 September 2016 from a distance of 2.7 km. The image scale is about 5 cm/pixel.

Philae’s 1 m-wide body and two of its three legs can be seen extended from the body. The images also provide proof of Philae’s orientation.

A Rosetta Navigation Camera image taken on 16 April 2015 is shown at top right for context, with the approximate location of Philae on the small lobe of Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko marked.

No more adding seperate lights to your bike with the Revolights Eclipse+. A cool little tech improvement if you'd ask me! (I'm Dutch, so yeah; we bike a lot over here...)

Check it out on: http://revolights.com/ (no advertisement, I just think it's neat).

I am quite curious to find out what the future holds for us with all these corporations/organisations (not just NASA) actively focussing on the development of super-/hypersonic jets. As well as making them more silent when they breach the sound barrier.

How fast will we go (in due time)?

Are you able to spot it from where you are?
Did you know that you can #SpotTheStation in the night sky? Find out when the International Space Station is flying over you: http://nasa.tumblr.com/post/139058870124/spot-the-international-space-station

Have a look at this beautiful "Earth-rise" shot from the moon.

Made by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) while flying 134 KM above the Compton crater on the moon. The technical difficulty of taking this shot (or a series of images anyway) is quite stunning. Check out the source: http://lroc.sese.asu.edu/posts/895 (they have a neat video explaining the process that took place to shoot this image).
