Space: Now More Twittery

This is a picture of space, which is apparently the final frontierDid you miss Star Trek this weekend? No matter! NASA is live-streaming the launch of the space shuttle Atlantis on its mission to fix the Hubble telescope, which is apparently held together with paperclips and string. Astronaut Mike Massimino is even Twittering the whole thing! (Most recent dispatch: "I'm going to put my spacesuit on, next stop: Earth Orbit!!") So much better than watching Kirk and Spock roughhouse around the deck of the Enterprise. Or at least cheaper.

Is the gay angle in the new Star Trek really that pervasive?

Don't ask me, I saw Wolverine again.

Obsessed = Even better the ninth time around

This has to be the 5th time we sent astronauts up there to fix that fucking telescope. Obviously, the astronauts cannot get the job done. Apparently, being a pilot, engineer, scientist and optician is too much to ask.

Time to suit up an adventurous Pearl or Lenscrafters employee.

It's like road construction contractors. They do crappy jobs up front to pad their ability to make money on the back-end in repair fees. Fucking greedy astronauts. We should start using cheaper cosmonauts.

Am I the only person that saw Star Trek and thought, "Well, that was serviceable." And I saw it in freaking IMAX!

Star Trek was a rockin' good time at the movies, but those pesky scientists need a good Hubble washing from time to time too. Don't forget to change the oil filter.
