Scary!

Not only has the arctic sea ice reached an all time record low (1.58 million square miles, dropping below the previous low, 1.61 square miles), but a sea storm that's bringing in MORE warm weather has the whole area churning in what's being described as a "giant slushie!"

The list of places we want to see is just growing and growing — and we don't mean here on Earth.

Space travel will be a reality some day, and if they don't stop finding new planets, we here at SpacePerez.com will never have enough time to see them all.

Daaaamn Space, You're Beautiful!

Filed under: InspirationScience!Space!

Have you ever seen anything this beautiful?

Forget about all the turmoil and hatred and bigotry in the world for a few minutes and think about the planet itself.

It's incredible — and nobody knows that better than space station astronauts. Some of them got together and edited this video capturing the earth hurtling past beneath and the stars forming kaleidoscopes as the space station tumbles past.

Simply stunning.

We want to go to there.

Tropical Oasis Discovered On Titan

Filed under: BeachScience!Space!

Titan Oasis

Here at SpacePerez.com FitPerez.com, we're into science.

So if someone tells us that a tropical oasis was discovered on Saturn's moon, Titan — well, we'd be surprised if we didn't get a raging science Titan ourselves!

Here's what a scientist said:

"This discovery was completely unexpected because lakes are not stable at tropical latitudes. Titan may have oases."

How do they know?

They measured reflected sunlight from Titan's surface and atmosphere, duh.

The international Cassini spacecraft was the one who detected a dark region near the landing site of Huygens, a companion probe that parachuted to Titan's equator in 2005.

That dark feature they found suggests the presence of a 927-square-mile hydrocarbon lake - twice as big as Lake Champlain.

Someone call SpaceX, we're ready for vacay!

Science! Science! Science!
