Astronaut in space selfie

This. Is. So Cool.

We think it's safe to say that this has hands down won the title of the Best Selfie of 2013.

Mike Hopkins, a NASA astronaut, snapped the pic while on a mission with fellow astronaut, Rick Mastracchio, to change a faulty water pump on the outside of the International Space Station!

NASA then took to their Instagram to show off the pic along with a caption to explain what was happening up on the ISS.

They said:

Iran Wants To Send A Persian Kitty Into Space!

| Filed under: Science!Space!CatKitten

It's like Iran has taken something out of our dreams — an adventuring space-kitty cat that defeats the evils of the universe with its bravery, purrs, and soft pawwws — but something tells us it isn't going to be the best time the cat has ever had!

We all know how terrified the monkey they sent up was (and how some even questioned whether it was the same monkey when it landed)!

The cat, according to top scientists, could be a Persian cat: a long-haired, flat-faced breed (we've shown you an example of what it will exactly look like above). They expect the furry feline to touch the heavens around March 21, the end of their year.

But hold up! The report said a mouse and rabbit also are under consideration, so like, the cat better not f*** up between now and then!

LOLz! (But for real.)

The launch reportedly would be with a larger, liquid-fueled rocket. One of the reasons they're looking into this stuff, they claim, is to put their own satellites into orbit to 'monitor natural disasters' in the nation, improve telecommunications and expand military surveillance in the region.

But first: CATS.

(Or a mouse or rabbit.)

Jimmy Kimmel Spaces Out With Los Angeles Dodgers Pitcher Clayton Kershaw! Watch HERE!

| Filed under: TV NewsZportzJimmy KimmelBaseballSpace!

In case you've been living under a rock for the past month or so, the Los Angeles Dodgers have been on FIRE lately, and one of the big reasons for their success has been their All-Star pitcher Clayton Kershaw!

The strikeout machine made the most of his day off yesterday and made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to talk about the season!

But once all of the baseball blabber came to an end, they talked about more important things, like space!!

About 2 minutes into the interview (above), Clayton reveals that his great uncle Clyde Tombaugh actually discovered Pluto, so needless to say his family was NOT happy when they heard it was downgraded to a dwarf planet!

But don't worry Clayton, we totally agree with your fans! Pluto will always be a planet it our hearts, too! LOLz!!

To infinity and seXXXyyyy!!!!

One lucky philanthropist bought a trip sitting next to Leonardo DiCaprio on Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic space flight.

INCREDIBALLZ!!!

The trip, which Leo may or may not regret to agreeing to later, sold for $1.5 million Thursday night at amfAR's annual gala and auction at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.

Now that was just for ONE SEAT. Meanwhile, another pair of tickets on the same flight went for $1.8 million.

Branson, who recently dolled himself up in flight attendant drag after losing a bet, wants the first trip to soar from New Mexico at the end of the year. How amazing, we hope it's televised!

LOL it's gotta be, right?? Like, no question about it!?!

Oh and by the way, Leo offered another

Astronaut Chris Hadfield Covers Space Oddity — IN SPACE!

| Filed under: Music MinuteInspirationSpace!

Chris Hadfield is probably the coolest guy we've ever had in space. Sure, there are people that have done monumental things and accomplished crazy firsts, but none of them had been as open with the huge amount of curious people on Earth!

Chris was very good about answering questions online and doing video demonstrations about what goes on in the International Space Station — something he could find time to do, even though he was the Commander. He taught us about brushing teeth to cleaning up spills, and he even promised to cover Space Oddity on his guitar as requested by his followers on the internet.

HOLY SHIZZ DID HE DELIVER (above)!

He also made sure to plug a dangerous ammonia leak during an impromptu space walk before turning over command and heading back to Earth!

What an amazeballs dude! WE OWE HIM A BEER! Ha!
