It's weeks like these that all the aliens need to get together and finally start an intergalactic news organization to report on all the universal happenings. Here at HowStuffWorks.com we've been so busy covering the Ig Nobels this week, that outer space took a back seat.
Which new story excited you the most? Was it NASA taking a bite out of the moon Friday morning? Or maybe you didn't bat an eye at that since, as Robert reminded me, this idea of bombing the moon has been around since as early as the 1950s in the form of Project A 119. Or maybe you're more of a pacifist and applaud Huffington Post blogger Amy Ephron's efforts to help save the moon (rather than bomb it). Furthermore, even if you were gung-ho on the explosion idea, the impact didn't exactly give you a big show in the form of a plume of debris.
