For a long time, I was a hardcore DC comics reader. Throughout the months leading up to the New 52 and following the relaunch, my saver was exclusively DC. I had some serious issues with Marvel and the decisions Joe Quesada was saddling the company with.

Even if you're not a member, the Planetary Society should be something you should pay attention to as a space buff. If it wasn't for them, we never would have seen this awesome image made by xkcd, which illustrates all 786 known planets in the Milky Way to scale.

Star Wars recently posted the cool behind-the-scenes photo from A New Hope that shows that Obi-Wan was always the coolest Jedi. People like to claim Qui-Gon was, but we all know it was his Padawan who claimed that title.... more.
