It’s been exactly one year since India’s Mangalyaan mission (a.k.a MOM, the Mars Orbiter Mission) hit our favorite planetary neighbor—and they’re celebrating with something pretty cool: An offworld atlas.
We’ve all had a mother, and so by nature, we all owe one a thank-you. Given that Mother’s Day is this Sunday, let’s celebrate it in photography. Take a photo that says thanks to your mom.
Do you know how much an incubator costs? Probably not, if you live in the developed world (and aren't a doctor). They can cost as much as $45,000, a price inconceivable for most hospitals or midwives in poor parts of the world. "The western world takes incubators for granted," says James Dyson, who revealed his…
India's recently launched Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) ran into a bit of trouble this weekend when a planned engine burn failed to raise the spacecraft to the correct orbital distance around Earth in the lead-up to its Mars departure, scheduled for later this month.
India is ready for its first ever space mission to the Red Planet, with its Mars Orbiter Mission (or "MOM") set to launch as early as October 28th. And yeah – you bet your ass they're looking for methane.
So far on Futurama, Mom has succeeded as a business leader only by cheating people. In this episode, she gets a lot better... and a lot worse.
If you didn't know, Mother's day is a few weeks away (May 12th this year) so it's a pretty good idea to tell your Mom you love her. Though you should do that everyday! Especially if you're the sons of amazing Nina Levy. She turns regular ol' lunch napkins into wonderful pieces of art. Just look at them.
The internet is a cruel place. We're all pretty well caught up on that by now, yes? More so, anyhow, than this unfortunate LSU Tigers fan, who asked a message board at Tigerdroppings to fix up a picture of his blessed mum. You can probably guess what happened next.
I won't be able to see my mom today because I'm on the other side of the country. But I sent flowers and mom is happy! What would you do if your mom was in space, like Astronaut Cady Coleman, though?
The Mommy Megaphone is a gag gift for parents that bills itself as a "sure-fire way to get everyone to listen." It has a speak mode and a siren mode, can project over 500 feet and is allegedly weather and baby-resistant. With an adjustable volume range of 5 to 10 Watts however, it's almost completely useless. Kids…
In a cafe deep in the heart of Amerikamura, Osaka, tables of otaku are sitting down to tea and cake with women old enough to be their mothers. Mother Café is an otaku fetishist establishment staffed with women that give off a motherly vibe; maid cafés are so yesterday.
Two days ago I posted a kinda funny email that my mom had sent to me in which she, quite logically I might add, asked if Blu-ray televisions existed to play all those Blu-ray movies.
...and she has a PhD. Here's the adorable email I had waiting in my inbox this morning.
Oh Smooth-o-rama. This is the wool version of the iPhone, lovingly knitted by some guy's mom. Big pic and specs after the jump.
This will serve as a personal reminder to me and the rest of the readers that Mother's Day is merely two weeks away. It's probably time to start thinking about gifts. Robert Silva with About Home Theatre has compiled a list of 10 good home theatre gifts that will make that momma jump with joy on May 14. Topping the…
