Watch them totally unexpectedly find extraterrestrial life. That would be amazing, but mostly hilarious.


Oh they’re going to find out whose glowing eyes those were, just seconds too late.


Man those bright spots are intriguing. What gets me is how bright they stay even when in the terminator (boundary between light and dark parts). They must really stick up, and they must be really reflective.

Shocked, SHOCKED there are no “INSIWABIWA” posts yet. People, please!

“In recognition of its planet-like qualities, Ceres was designated a dwarf planet in 2006, along with Pluto and Eris”

Thanks, Neil…

Will “That’s no dwarf planet!” do?

Tell me, Hilda, does all this frighten you? Does it make you feel insecure?

Yes sir, it certainly does.

That’s good, Hilda; I’m glad.

Ion drives are pure Buck Rogers.

Can we stop calling them dwarf planets?

They prefer the term Diametrically Challenged Planets.
