Apparently the Lock Ness Monster is may actually be a fault running under the lake. Somehow I don’t think this theory will quiet down the nut case conspiracy theorists, but that’s just me.

I’m a little disturbed that people can’t tell the difference between a prehistoric sea monster and a log. Yeah, that really happened.

Two of Pluto’s moons have brand new names, but Vulcan isn’t one of them (sorry Bill Shatner). I had absolutely no idea Pluto had 5 moons!

Why is is that we only have one moon and its got the most lame name. Can’t we come up with something better than “The Moon”. I mean for crying out loud, we’ve actually been to our moon.

Speaking of outer space, this trailer was just released. The film is made using all real photos from years of space missions. This is definitely going on my calendar, even if it will be Spring 2014.

This is absolutely gorgeous. While I realize that beauty is no reason to explore the universe, it sure is one hell of a bonus.
