In an age of water-shortages and droughts with global warming and what have you and so forth, textile-based installation artist and educator Elisabeth Buecher has invented a clever way to conserve water.

Titled “My Shower is a Green Warrior,” Buecher’s shower curtain turns spiky after four minutes of bathing, “taking over the space and discouraging long water-wasting showers.”

Genius! Ship them down to Cali!

!! OMG, teleport us to Mars! NASA begins building their own flying saucers !!

nasa_2954317b.jpg
NASA is working on their own FLYING SAUCERS! The saucer will eventually be used for landing large payloads on Mars.
Nasa had hoped to launch a test flight earlier this month, but was unable to do so because of poor weather conditions around its Kauai, Hawaii, where the trial was due to take place.

The trial will initially entail using a helium balloon to lift the saucer to about 120,000 feet, after which a rocket will be used to take it up into the stratosphere at four times the speed of sound.
Then the saucer’s decelerator and parachute will put through its paces.
The craft, or to give it its official name Low-Density Supersonic Decelerator (LDSD), looks like a cross between a flying saucer and an inflatable rubber ring.
Its task is to deliver vital equipment to missions such as that on Mars without plummeting to the surface too quickly and destroying the payload.
“Our goal is to get to an altitude and velocity which simulates the kind of environment one of our vehicles would encounter when it would fly in the Martian atmosphere,” said Ian Clark, a Nasa engineer.

Poor weather conditions in Hawaii always ruin everything, but we’re glad NASA sorted that shit out and we’ll actually get to watch flying saucers take the skies soon. I’ve got my tinfoil helmut ready and everything!

The Imperial Senate will not sit still!
Above is a first look at NASA‘s artist rendering of what their plan for the first faster-than-light space ship will look like. Hopefully that thing will be able to get us to Kepler 186f STAT so we can begin polluting that shit!

Ever wonder how many people are in space like, right now (not accounting for dead bodies lost in the abyss), and it’s kinda driving you crazy? Well this site lets you know who’s up there, and how long they’re supposed to be there for, so they don’t freak out and go all Ryan Stone on us.
