With the Ares I-X a success, boning up on your LEM skills may not be a bad idea; the Apollo 11 Owner’s Manual will teach you how to do burns, orbital rendezvous, and moon landings.
To call The Astronomer’s Dream trippy is a galactic understatement, but we’re slack-jawed over its amazing details; you can support indie director Malcolm Sutherland by buying the DVD.
Galactic Suites plans to open the first space hotel in 2012; $4.4 million buys you a 3-day stay (with 15 sunrises/day), a velcro-covered suit, and 8 weeks of training on a tropical island.
The ragdoll death animations are a bit silly, but space combat looks (and sounds, thanks to “audio simulation files”) absolutely epic in this Escalation trailer for Shattered Horizon.
Suits often have astronomical prices, but this Now That’s A Suit! t-shirt takes things to orbital heights: pinstripes pale in comparison to $2 million and 300 pounds of pressurized awesome.
Cobbled together from junk parts, Iain Sharp’s real-life, analog version of Atari’s 1979 Lunar Lander game is out of this world; it’s powered by a pair of old PCs and Sharp’s own software.
Spitzer Science Center’s When Galaxies Collide may be cheesy, but Felicia Day rocks as she dismantles the brainless Hollywood-ization of science; bonus points if you catch the Whedon quip.
That’s one giant leap for iPhone/iPod users: the NASA app is a must for space travel enthusiasts, with mission updates, pictures via IOTD and APOD, videos and Twitter updates.
The deadly void of space has never looked more beautiful with this nearly soundless trailer for Shattered Horizon; 100% in-game footage, it’s packed with sweet zero-g combat.
They grow up so fast: watch the International Space Station as it evolves, piece by piece, starting with a single module in 1998 to today’s multiple solar-paneled behemoth.
And it all started with clay and paper clips: LIFE Magazine gives us a peek at early spacecraft models and tests by both NASA and the Russian space programs in the 1960s and 70s.
One year after its debut teaser, AureaSection has released a second Naumauchia teaser in glorious HD; it’s a space combat game with up to 8 players and is due out later this year.
Thanks to its recent tune-up, Hubble has unloaded a slew of new space pictures lately; Hubblecast shows how they use a freeware Photoshop plugin called FITS Liberator to process images.
Weighing just 3 1/4 lbs, this Backpack Telescope is ideal for long hikes in search of perfect stargazing spots: it includes a padded nylon pack, 70mm refractor, and 19′ tripod.
Auto-tuning is arguably played out, but this Carl Sagan music video (feat. Stephen Hawking) is the trippiest, space-time bendingest tour of the cosmos we’ve ever taken.
It can’t beat Project Icarus’ $150 budget, but BEAR (Balloon Experiments with Amateur Radio) brings back something much cooler (albeit dizzying): actual HD video from space.
Single-use websites are all the rage nowadays, but we couldn’t help having an existential pale blue dot moment with How Many People Are In Space Right Now; RSS feed here.
Shot with a Nikon D3 and composed of 1,200 photos, the Gigagalaxy Zoom Project is an 800 million pixel image of our Milky Way; download a smaller 18 million pixel image here.
We’re still waiting for our own flight to space, but MIT students recently sent a camera 17.5 miles into near-space using a prepaid GPS cellphone, hand warmers and a styrofoam beer cooler.
The Hubble telescope is 19 years old, but you wouldn’t know it from this new set of photos snapped after recent upgrades; it sports a new Wide Field camera and spectrograph.
Inspired by a Swiss sci-fi film of the same name, Space-themed watchmaker Fortis’ CARGO Spacematic features an asymmetric 40 mm high-grade steel case and sapphire crystal.
Moonbell isn’t quite a game–it uses topographical data from Japan’s Kaguya satellite that lets you play the Moon’s surface like a record; choose from Orbit Play and Free Scratch modes.
It came from Earth: Le Petit Prince is a slightly creepy, four-legged robotic greenhouse designed to seek out nutrients on Mars; it’ll talk to other robots wirelessly for optimal locations.
Big Bang Briefly is the most important video you’ll watch today, and possibly ever: it explains your existence and that of the entire universe, and all of it in just over two minutes.
NASA apes Roland Emmerich with this Planetary Smash-Up video; it was created after the Spitzer Telescope recently detected evidence of a collision around a star 100 light-years away.
