SPACESHIP!!!!!!

Astronauts aboard the Boeing/Bigelow CST-100 Starliner spacecraft will be sporting these snazzy, Benny-approved spacesuits recently unveiled by Boeing. [click to continue…]

Imagine riding your motorcycle down an empty desert highway with a canopy of stars above you. This is the jacket for that ride.

Ladies, this jacket will work for you, no matter what flavor your “bike” is – even if you don’t have one. This asymmetrical full-zip hooded jacket features a print of Hubble’s image of “Mystic Mountain” in the Carina Nebula. On the outside? A sweet, fitted faux leather jacket with nice lines. On the inside? Epic space geekiness. It comes with a removable hood, also lined with space, and the sleeves feature zippers for a snug fit. We hear it gets cold in space.

Etsy shop Pretty Little Earth specializes in crafting laser-cut wood jewelry—specifically space-themed jewelry. My personal favorite? The lunar lander necklace—but there’s a lot to choose from. Check out more designs below. [click to continue…]

An imgur dad going by “bruck7” used the time his wife was at work to transform their daughter’s Magic SleepSuit into what they thought it looked like all along: a mini spacesuit.

The suit, which is apparently designed to help babies sleep better, was enhanced with NASA patches ordered from Amazon and “big fluffy boots”, resulting in something bruck7 says he can’t look at without laughing.

Fortunately, mom’s reaction was captured in the video below, where you’ll also find additional pics. [click to continue…]

We have seen many variations on solar system necklaces, and even one or two necklaces that focused on fictional planets. These handmade earring designs from Lauren Beacham would be a perfect paring.

They’re available in a mismatched solar system design or moon phases for $45.

Two things ThinkGeek. First off, make this Twinkling Stars Skirt in plus sizes. Second—make it in shorts because I’m very jealous right now.

We guarantee this skirt will put a twinkle in your step. Equipped with over 250 tiny LEDs, this midi-length skirt flatters many body types. You can set the lights to off (or wear it without the battery pack), and you’ll have a stellar ombre skirt featuring an actual star chart sure to spark conversation. But the real magic happens when you set the lights to On or Twinkle. Over 45 feet of LED wire lights sparkle inside the layers, looking like little fairy lights shining through the fabric.

Twinkling Stars Skirt ($59.99)

hubble dress

Redditor Andromeda321 is an astronomer. Here we see her sporting a dress with the Hubble Deep Field on it. Could there be a more perfect dress for someone in her profession? I think not. However, she notes that she rarely wears it because she views it as “kinda cliche for an astronomer to wear”.

what, What, WHAT? If I was an astronomer you had better believe my entire wardrobe would be space-themed. She earned this style.

It appears that the version she is wearing came from Macy’s, but is no longer being sold. But, we did find a very similar version on Redbubble if you’re interested in owning it yourself.

Jewelry designer Karen Konzuk doesn’t just design jewelry. She creates hand-crafted sculpture you can wear using unconventional materials like diamond dust and black-tinted concrete to create pieces that are truly breathtaking.

Her newest collection is called Stellar and features stars and constellations you can wear. Some of the pieces, like the ones featured here, are also inspired by kinetic sculpture. “Intense” is one way to describe them. See more below. [click to continue…]

For photographer Aaron Sheldon‘s four-year-old son, visiting the doctor’s office was akin to entering an unfamiliar and foreboding abyss. However, his fear was conquered when he “decided to act brave like an astronaut”, and donned a spacesuit for the occasion.

The initial photograph of the experience has since grown into an awesome series entitled “Small Steps Are Giant Leaps“, which features the little astronaut wearing his spacesuit to a variety of locations. Sheldon notes:

My goal is that the images from my “Small Steps Are Giant Leaps” project will remind other moms or dads out there who may be losing their patience in line at the grocery store or coffee shop that our kids aren’t just acting like fools – they are exploring new frontiers. Our job as parents is to act as their mission control and co-pilot to make sure they can explore as much of their new world as possible.
