NASA astronaut launches to space station, his home for an entire year — NASA astronaut Scott Kelly launched to the International Space Station on a Russian Soyuz rocket on Friday for a year-long mission that will reveal more about humans in space and get us one step closer to Mars. Scientists will study astronaut Kelly's health in tandem with his identical twin, Mark, a retired astronaut.

Wake up, Philae. You're on a comet headed for the Sun — Scientists on Thursday will begin attempts to wake up a robot that landed on a comet nearly four months ago. The European Space Agency will try to make contact with the Philae lander, which is currently taking a bit of a nap on Comet 67-P after a bumpier-than-expected landing in November left it stranded in a shaded area of the comet.

Images from his other career — You know Leonard Nimoy as Mr. Spock, but what you may not know Leonard Nimoy the photographer.

But those brave souls put on their Canada Goose puff coats and said, "Damn you, Mother Nature! We will not be defeated!"

The universe is smiling at us — Far away in a distant galaxy, there is a beaming face smiling back at us. Hubble scientists recently discovered this galaxy cluster - massive structures that exert a gravitational pull strong enough to warp the spacetime around them (nbd) - that resembles a face with two bright eyes, a button nose and a smile.

Florida man publishes e-book containing 8 years of his emails — Why bother with Fifty Shades of Grey when you can read eight years of Jeb Bush's emails? The prospective 2016 Republican presidential candidate released an e-book ( PDF) of the emails he sent during his time as governor of Florida. Oh the novelty! When I was governor, I often used email to correspond.

Boston shatters all-time records as snow keeps falling — Snow is falling yet again on New England and portions of New York state, bringing up to one to two feet (or more) of the white stuff to some areas and making Monday morning commutes potentially hazardous.
