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.

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.

The Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) are responsible for the U.S. National Laboratory on the International Space Station. This year they teamed with Marvel to make an official mission patch that stars Groot and Rocket Raccoon.
Honestly, I’m not surprised. There’s a nerd or two working for NASA after all. In fact, I’ll be the other agencies are super jealous right now.
The patch was revealed at SDCC by CASIS rep Patrick O’Neill, who notes that the patch represents all of the scientific investigations on the station’s National Laboratory for 2016. From The Verge:
“These are characters who have a bit of a space-based background to begin with,” said O’Neill. “So both of [these] characters already embody some of the characteristics associated with what’s happening on the space station.”

Since the dawn of humanity, we have gazed up at the stars, pointed at celestial bodies and asked ourselves: “What does that smell like?”
At long last we have an answer to the question that has burned at our very cores for millennia. Turns out comets smell a little like cat urine, rotten eggs and bitter almonds. [click to continue…]
