  1. So a group called SpaceX have managed to bring about the first successful private space launch, which is probably some of the best news space fans have had since NASA's budget was crippled not too long ago. This success comes shortly after Planetary Resources outlined it's plans to start ming the asteroids caught in Earth's gravity for resources.

    Yes, you heard me. Space mining.

  2. woooooooot

    so excite. Soon I shall live alone on the moon!
  3. NASA is SO old school. I always thought it was going to be the ultra rich launching rockets and flying around in outer space, but this is pretty awesome.
  4. Sweetness. And not the gay kind. The bad ass space kind.
  5. I have to agree with what everyone said. Mankind's dreams are finally starting to come true.
