1. “Please. You don’t want to raise a generation of science students who don’t understand how we know our place in the cosmos.”

    – Bill Nye (The Science Guy) • Speaking during a debate he took part in tonight at Kentucky’s Creation Museum, where he sparred with creationist Ken Ham on the topic of evolution. Nye called Creationism “absolutely not viable”; his opponent argued that teaching evolution was about “imposing the religion of atheism on generations of students.” Nye, who was paid to show up, drew controversy for his appearance, as it was seen as lending some legitimacy to the museum.

  3. Ew.

    This morning I went on a run because, you know. (“How is that going?!” you ask. “Meh…” I say.) It’s cold in the mornings, so I put Vaseline on my cheeks because I read somewhere that it prevents wind chapping. I probably didn’t need it because it’s not THAT cold anymore, but I’m a weenie. Deal with it.

    At some point during mile 2 today, I ran straight into a swirling cloud of gnats… while I had petroleum jelly on my face. WHILE I HAD PETROLEUM JELLY ON MY FACE. I might as well have been wearing fly paper.

    And if that weren’t disgusting enough, Bobby just sent me this: TIL that gnat clouds are essentially gnat orgies. Ew.

    BRB, I need to go sterilize my face.

Take a look at the enigmatic galaxy Messier 106 with SpaceRip!

Although it may not look particularly unique, some of its features have baffled astronomers for years. Messier 106 has a supermassive black hole at its centre. Although this is true for most galaxies, this black hole is particularly active and hungry, gobbling up nearby material at a startling rate. This huge black hole’s bottomless appetite is behind much of the galaxy’s unusual behavior…

Peep this GIF I made, guys. No really. Just look at it. Science!

This interview with members of the Mars Science Laboratory team shows how difficult it was to guide a Mars rover hurtling through space towards a moving target. It really makes you appreciate all the engineering and hard work that went into this successful mission.

Congrats to everyone at NASA and MSL!

This is so freaking cool! Humans are incredible, space is incredible. I’m gonna raise a glass for science and exploration tonight.
