The astronauts aboard the International Space Station must get bored and lonely sometimes.
When you're floating 250 miles above the Earth's surface, you're pretty far from everyone else… but that doesn't mean you're left out!
This Vine feels like it could have been directed by Alfonso Cuarón.
But no! This looping, orbiting video was posted by astronaut Reid Weisman, whose Vine app has boldly gone where no Vine app has gone before…the ultimate vacuum.
Well, we're sure someone made a Vine of a vacuum cleaner at some point, but when it comes to the expanse of space, this may be one small step for social media, but it's also one giant leap for social media kind.
Along with this Vine, Reid posted this Neil Armstrong-like declaration:
Wait… isn't this just Gravity? No? Okay, if you say so…
Uh, yeah, you had us at "alright, alright, alright"!
But don't take our word for it!
Ch-ch-check out the first official trailer for Interstellar (above) and get blown the eff away!
Yes!!! It's like Galaxy Quest, but without all those time consuming jokes! We're guessing the phallic-shaped rocket they launch is a metaphor for the huge boner erupting in everyone's pants right now because this is AMAZEBALLZ!
Interstellar blasts off — LOLz, sorry, couldn't resist — on November 7th.
OH! WHAT!?! This is so exciting!!
The Curiosity Rover, which likes to do it's own thing up there on the red planet, photographed a flash of blinding white light on the surface of Mars!
Which is SO COOL!
But, does this mean there's alien?!?! Have we FINALLY found proof of alien life?!
HOLY MOLY! This is SO cool!!
NASA has announced that they have found evidence that one of Saturn's moons, Enceladus, has a HUGE underground OCEAN on it!
Back in 2005, their Cassini space craft saw vapor & ice coming out of the planet, so this caused them to investigate further, and they discovered the evidence!
Since the ocean, ya know, exists, the NASA scientists believe Enceladus could be home to extraterrestrial microbes.
Aka ALIENS?!?! Aka AWESOME!!
While microbes don't really count as aliens like we think of them, it's still an exciting update in the quest through the galaxy!
Who knows, maybe in the near future people will be traveling there to colonize the Milky Way in the name of science! LOLz!!!

Cats are super cute, everyone knows this. Space is super awesome. People generally know this as well.
So when you combine cats and space you get Space Cats. And they're literally the best thing ever.
We really enjoyed the movie Gravity but, don't tell Alfonso Cuarón, it was missing a little something.
And that something was cats.
Really cute, foul-mouthed, cats.
Like, we're pretty sure there wasn't this much cursing in the original Gravity. Unless all that heavy breathing was inserted to dub over Sandra Bullock's potty mouth or something.
We think we like this version even better than the pug one!
Either way, none of that matters because SPACE CATS.
Drop whatever you're doing (unless it's rocking a baby) and check out the video or you'll be sorry… AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Jean-Claude Van Damme is the coolest, most badass, most butt-kickingest guy on planet earth.
And now… he's the best OFF planet earth too!!
Remember when Van Damme did his epic split for Volvo? Where he was suspended between two big rigs and his junk somehow didn't rip in half?
Well someone did our favorite version yet by putting JCVD into outer space!
Ever wonder what it'd be like to see JCVD doing a split while floating around in earth's orbit??
Us too!! Thanks goodness someone made this video!
Check out the vid and prepare to have your mind blown (above)!
Eat it, Sandra!
