NASA isn't going to touch B.o.B.'s flat-Earth rant, Washington Post
.
"Here's the anthology of the bizarre-o flap: The rapper began sharing images and whack-job conspiracy theories in support of his position on Sunday. After astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson stepped in to school him, B.o.B. threw shade at the scientist and the space agency in a diss track. ... Tyson even enlisted his nephew to pen a song responding to B.o.B's. But NASA is planning to stay (much like an Earth-monitoring satellite) above the fray. "We don't think there's a debate to be had," an agency spokeswoman said. Instead, she pointed anyone interested in the issue to the agency's' website and cache of images of our fair planet sent from space."

Keith's note: With no science fiction movies around to dump on, Neil Tyson needs something to get him on Comedy Central. Because, in the end, Neil Tyson is just an entertainer with a Ph.D. What nonsense issue will Neil Tyson go after next? Oh wait: X-Files is back on the air

NASA Launches David Bowie Concept Mission, The Onion

"NASA officials announced today the successful launch of the new shuttle Moonage Daydream, marking the beginning of a long-anticipated two-week conceptual mission inspired by British rock star David Bowie. According to NASA administrator Maj. Gen. Charles F. Bolden, Jr., the highly experimental glam space program dubbed Project Starman has been in development for exactly five years. Though engineers initially feared the mission might "blow our minds," the historic launch ultimately proceeded without incident."
