Jeff High Smith of Makezine wanted to make his son a homework desk with an added bonus and was more than successful.

After work is complete, the desk transforms into the coolest spaceship mission control desk any kid could dream of. 

The desk includes countless NASA-themed buttons, buzzers, switches, lights and sound effects. 

Best dad ever!

Six Decades Of A Warming Earth Animation

A debate has erupted over this new video by NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

The quick clip visualizes the warming of the Earth over the past 60 years. Supporters of Global Warming and Climate Change tout the video as solid proof of a dangerous trend. 

Skeptics argue that six decades is too small of a time frame to fully understand climate patterns. 

Still, NASA’s findings are glaring: 

“With the exception of 1998, the 10 warmest years in the 133-year record all have occurred since 2000, with 2010 and 2005 ranking as the hottest years on record.”

Juno Spacecraft Passes By Earth And Moon

The space age may be in its infancy, but it’s still here. 

NASA‘s Juno spacecraft is traveling to Jupiter, and is set to reach the gassy planet by July of 2016. The craft is outfitted with a slew of special equipment to track, test, and observe space. 

One sensor is a special camera “optimized to track faint stars” which recently had a very unique view of the Earth and our moon.

From 600,000 miles away, Juno captured one frame at a time and sent the footage back to Earth to be processed into this very special video. 

Already, the clip has amassed over half a million views!

Bill Nye’s Open Letter to President Barack Obama

The Planetary Society has just published this open letter from Bill Nye The Science Guy to President Barack Obama.

Bill explains in his letter to Obama that NASA and the Planetary Science Program have an extremely positive and critical impact on America and the world at large. 

But funding is expected to be cut. He requests that funding for the crucial program be held at least $1.5 billion so that America can continue innovating and pushing the boundaries of science and technology.
