Do you like space? Do you like jokes? Man, you are gonna love this.
Q: What do planets like to read?
A: Comet books!
Ha! Wait, wait, hold on.
Q: What is an astronauts favorite key on the keyboard?
A: The space bar!

You know how a fine wine gets better with age? Well, planets get oldy, coldy, and moldy. Saturn says "screw that", and is just warm, and bright, and oh so happy to be alive. Well, as alive as space ice and gas n stuff is alive.

Hey guess what! Congress continues to not give NASA any money and forces US astronauts to keep hitching rides with the Russians until at least 2016! Ugh.

Look to the skies on May 4-5 and you might see FIRE.
It is called the Eta Aquarid meteor shower and Sunday morning, it should produce 20-40 shooting stars per hour. Check out that link and see when and where you can watch.
YOU GUYS I THINK I HAVE TO GO LAY DOWN BECAUSE SPACE IS SO AWESOME YOU GUYS.
