12 Billion Year Old Water…

Scientists have found the biggest and oldest reservoir of water ever-so large and so old, it’s almost impossible to describe.

The water is out in space, a place we used to think of as desolate and desert dry, but it’s turning out to be pretty lush.

Researchers found a lake of water so large that it could provide each person on Earth an entire planet’s worth of water-20,000 times over. Yes, so much water out there in space that it could supply each one of us all the water on Earth-Niagara Falls, the Pacific Ocean, the polar ice caps, the puddle in the bottom of the canoe you forgot to flip over-20,000 times over.

A trillion is a huge number — when you’re talking dollars or euros. But a trillion miles is not so much in the cosmic scheme of things. Astronomers say they’ve now found a planet that orbits two suns a mere thousand trillion miles from here. It’s yet another example of a weird solar system being discovered around nearby stars. #basically Tatooine

Saturn Fly-By

5.6k Saturn Cassini Photographic Animation from stephen v2 on Vimeo.

Animated from thousands of still photographs, this virtual fly-by is a preview of an IMAX film in the works. Each image comes from the Cassini-Huygens Orbiter, launched in conjunction with a Titan probe of the same name in 1997 and transmitting stunning visuals since 2004. This one goes out to all of our space-ninjas; it’s far more difficult to hear or see a ninja coming in space, btw.
