Why the world didn’t end “yesterday”

OK, this is pretty interesting. NASA (the National Aeronautics Space Agency) is so confident that all the hub-bub about the Mayan Apocalypse of 12/21/2012 is so much horse ka-ka that it preparesd a video explaining why tio is so much horse ka-ka. however, for some reason the agency has already released the video as an ‘I told ya so’ to all of the log-heads who listen to such clap-trap, and the Agency released the video a full 10 days early. The space agency is so confident the world will go on after December 21 that it’s already produced and released a video explaining why we didn’t end.

The video details how the Mayan calendar doesn’t predict the end of the world before we get to see another episode of “Game of Thrones.” But for some reason, the space agency has opted to release the video 10 days early. Perhaps someone at NASA isn’t so sure we’d be able to watch it on December 22 after all?

So, there! You have to pay your bills after all!

Beware the Death Star…

OK, this is just too cool for words:

Pity the poor NASA astronomer who saw the first images of this moon when the Pioneer 11 flew by in 1979.
For this was only two years after the first Star Wars came out – so that film’s iconic Death Star was very much in the public consciousness.
The similarities are pretty startling – enough to make us wonder if Saturn’s moon, called Mimas, is not actually just the fossilised, crumbling remains of an evil empire’s ship from a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…

You read that right, it looks like the Empire’s Death Star is somehow orbiting around Saturn. Seriously, how cool would that be, eh?
