If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Yeah...apart from a few good bits, this year has sucked the big one.

I'm certainly sorry to hear that she was strangled by her bra...what a way to go. :/

Snaggy tomorrow night just after sundown go outside and look for a comet, there is supposed to be one visible.

Looking at the orbital elements of that comet, it has an eccentricity >1 - which means it's on an escape trajectory.
Barring some interaction with another body, we'll never see it again.
That's kind of cool.
