This Woman Makes Hilarious Sh*tty Robots (8 GIFs)

We all know that there's high comedic value in fails. Especially when the things that are failing are not meant to fail... like robots. Simone Gietrz makes robots that have potential but were never really meant to succeed, and watching Simone "use" them will make you laugh harder than anything else you have seen today. Promise. You should probably just watch all of her hilarious videos on her YouTube channel. If you like to watch things exploding, check out NASA's test megarocket fuel tank exploding with liquid nitrogen. It's pretty cool.

Watch The First Moments of NASA's Crew Dragon Spacecraft Launch

Don't have time to watch or fast-forward through 6 hours of filler coverage? We've grabbed the perfect shots from SpaceX and NASA's joint spacecraft launch of the Crew Dragon. This is the first commercial spacecraft in history to bring astronauts into space, and was designed by the tech giant Elon Musk with his SpaceX commercial space program. With the launch a complete success, and the window narrowing after inclement weather, the successful launch was a massive achievement for commercial space travel, and the potential is massive for scaling this to even greater heights. Next stop, Mars.

Launch highlights of the SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft as it carries two astronauts into space to the International Space Station as the first commercial spacecraft to bring astronauts into space. The cover gif is an immediate close up and then zoom out of SpaceX's Crew Dragon spacecraft launching and the thrust trail it leaves as it rockets into the atmosphere and into space.

This Low Cost Version Of Titanic Is Hilarious (Ten GIFs)

Ah, Titanic. A classic, romantic and heart-breaking movie that will go down in history as one of the most unforgettable films. But what if it was made with a very, very low budget? That's exactly what the guys over at Studio 188 wondered too. So they made it: a low cost version of Titanic. And it is (sorry James Cameron) way, way better than the original. Mostly because it had us crying tears of laughter for the whole 2:48 of the video. This will be the funniest thing you see all month. Guaranteed.

Someone Made An AI Powered Machine Out Of Lego That Sorts Lego (GIFs)

Remember that big box of Lego you had as a child that was filled with hundreds of different styles of Lego and twenty Lego men and women from Darth Vader to scuba divers? Trying to sort those boxes would have been impossible. That's probably what Daniel West experienced before he built his Universal Lego Sorting Machine from Lego. It uses artificial intelligence to sort the Lego pieces and we all want one for our ahem nieces and nephews.

A Black Blacker Than Black: Vantablack has Been Outdone By MIT Scientists... By Accident

You might think you know black... But you don't know Black. Vantablack took the world by storm when it was shown to be the most light absorbent material ever created. It absorbs 99.96% of light, and was recently used by BMW to advertise a Vantablack covered SUV using nanotechnology to adhere the substance to the car. 

But MIT was not to be outdone, and created the darkest substance ever found, though their feat was unintentional. Now they have put their discovery on display, in one of the most incredible exhibits possible.

The Next Mars Mission Is Going To Include a Space Helicopter

That is not a typo. NASA has been hard at work developing the technology for the next mission to Mars. Part of that are the modules that will be part of the rover. An autonomous helicopter would be able to take pictures never seen before, and reach areas that the rover on the ground, would take far longer to reach, and might not even be accessible.

NASA's Latest Planned Conquest - A Close Up Of The Solar Poles

NASA is at it again. This time they are looking toward the Sun and examining regions of it that have not been seen up close up until now. But they're not alone either. NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) have joined forces to potentially change our understanding of the Sun and how it affects Earth. The goal of the 7-year mission is to launch a satellite to orbit the Sun and take pictures of the Sun's poles for the first time in history. 

A Joint NASA and ESA (European Space Agency) project is working to send a probe to the Sun to examine the northern and solar poles. The cover photo is of a digital rendering of the craft as it approaches the surface of the Sun
