How cool would it be if we actually had rings around Earth? Very.

Saturn's Rings First Official Teaser

Quote
This is real. All of it. I would file this under "Sci-Fi", but there's no Fiction, it's 100% pure Science! In 1997 NASA launched a spacecraft called the Cassini, packed with cameras and instruments (and an orbiter which they sent to Saturn's moon Titan in 2005) to collect data from space. It's mission: to photograph and study our solar system, our galaxy, and specifically Saturn and its rings a distant 750,000 miles away. A computer whiz designed a program to make video out of the photographs at 4K IMAX resolution, and here's our first 3-minute teaser trailer for In Saturn's Rings. I had no idea they were making this, but now I'm dying to see it. This is unbelievably breathtaking, completely real galactic beauty at its finest. Must watch this trailer.

In Saturn's Rings Doc

This is real. All of it. I would file this under "Sci-Fi", but there's no Fiction, it's 100% pure Science! In 1997 NASA launched a spacecraft called the Cassini, packed with cameras and instruments (and an orbiter which they sent to Saturn's moon Titan in 2005) to collect data from space. It's mission: to photograph and study our solar system, our galaxy, and specifically Saturn and its rings a distant 750,000 miles away. A computer whiz designed a program to make video out of the photographs at 4K IMAX resolution, and here's our first 3-minute teaser trailer for In Saturn's Rings. I had no idea they were making this, but now I'm dying to see it. This is unbelievably breathtaking, completely real galactic beauty at its finest. Must watch this trailer.

Here's the official teaser trailer for Stephen van Vuuren's doc In Saturn's Rings, in high def on YouTube:

In Saturn's Rings, written & directed by Stephen van Vuuren (Still Life, Catastrophe), is a giant screen space film for IMAX, giant screen and fulldome theaters distributed by BIG & Digital, coming in the spring of 2014. The film is 100% created using only flat 2D photographs (often hundreds or thousands per frame) stitched together for massive hundred megapixel+ resolutions that are scaled and zoomed using techniques developed by the filmmaker, based on Ken Burns and 2.5D photo animation processes. A computer is not even required to do this - it could all be done exactly using photoanimation techniques from 100 years ago. No 3D models, texture mapping, CGI, camera projection, cloning or painting or any other VFX techniques are used - every pixel is what was captured in the photograph

No lie, but every time I've seen a shooting star in the sky, I would say "that is da sh*t, yo!".  ;D

If going with a significant other could be a possibility... then maybe.

Do you have a young one you'd like to introduce to the teachings of noted theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, or did A Brief History of Time just make your brain hurt? Then this short, educational and adorable animation from The Guardian is for you!

The brief cartoon explains black holes, singularities, the Big Bang and why Hawking is a total badass simply and efficiently, so that anyone can understand. Hopefully "Stephen Hawking's Ideas Made Simple" is going to be a recurring series, and this is just the first of many videos you know, for the children! And, uh, science-challenged adults. Whoever they might be. Cough.

A peak performance by Geminid meteor shower: See it live or online

Quote
One of the best meteor showers of the year is set to put on a performance Friday night, but if you can't catch the cosmic display in person, you can watch it live online.

The Geminid meteor shower named for the constellation Gemini is peaking late tonight into Saturday morning, potentially treating stargazers in light-free areas to about 90 to 120 meteors per hour. Observers can expect to get the best views of the shower, weather permitting, at around 4 a.m. local time in the wee hours of Saturday morning after the waxing moon sets, according to Bill Cooke, head of NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office.

"This year, there will be a magic hour starting at about 4 a.m. up until dawn that there will be no moon and you'll be able to see the Geminids in their full glory," Cooke told reporters on Dec. 11. Space fans everywhere can catch the meteor show live online through two webcasts from the online Slooh Space Camera and NASA. You can watch both NASA and Slooh's live webcasts on Space.com. [See Photos of the 2012 Geminid Meteor Shower]

NASA is hosting a web chat about the meteor shower beginning at 11 p.m. EST. Cooke and two of his team members Danielle Moser and Rhiannon Blaauw will answer questions from the public about the Geminids during the "up all night" webcast. The chat is expected to run until 3 a.m. EST and can be seen here.

I actually was up for this, for a very short time, and only saw an eclipse. No red.  :-\

I didn't know about this until the news came in after the fact. I wish I had been told beforehand so that I could see this for myself as it happened.
