Are those stars in the background or photography artifact?

It reminds me of a half chewed Chewit.

I wonder if is chewier than Barrow in Furness bus depot?

Banana candy is mirror universe pizza/sex: even when it’s good, it’s still bad.

Seriously, candy makers? Out of all the possible* flavors, you chose fake banana.

I have nothing clever to say. Just - this is so f-ing COOL! Something we made just zipped by a teeny tiny moon of a huge far away planet, and sent back crisp clear pictures. Maybe it’s because I was born before a human walked on the moon (that is, OUR moon) but I am damn impressed!
