Anomaly is an unusual Christmas tale, set in the late 60’s, which tells the story of a group of people connected by the same astronomical event: A frightening meteor that will enter and exit the atmosphere. It is weird and sad and hopeful and just really interesting to watch.
Most of the gorgeous images of distant galaxies we all keep in our minds were captured by the lens of The Hubble Space Telescope. But those lens can only take black and white images. The color is added afterwards according to "the wavelengths of light that different elements emit in space." This is how they do it.
Momofuku's chef David Chang challenges the traditional way of making ramen broth using flavor-packed freeze-dried food like the one astronauts eat in their missions.
On March 1 SpaceX's Falcon 9 deployed two communication satellites to a supersynchronous transfer orbit. This video shows the second one, the EUTELSAT 115 West B. And it feels like a clip from 2001: A Space Odyssey. So cool.
A few days ago, Grafitti artist INSA made a massive animated painting in Rio de Janeiro. Over four days he painted an area of 154,774 square feet (14,379 square meters) with the help of 20 assistants. The painting states were captured by a satellite to create this GIF, the biggest ever.
First We Feast reader Juan Cisneros made this great comic explaining why astronauts eat tortillas instead of bread in space. Mexican astronaut and scientist Rodolfo Neri Vela was the first requesting them for a mission back in 1985. From that moment it became a staple of the astronauts' diet.
Editor Max Shishkin combined the soundtrack of Intersellar, the voice of Anthony Hopkins reading Do not go gentle into that good night by Dylan Thomas, and footage from 35 of the best space movies to make this amazing mashup.
I've seen videos edited with footage from ISS before, but I like this one above the rest for two reasons. One: A human-made spacecraft is going land on the surface of a comet for the first time ever, and we NEED to celebrate it with some good space porn. And two: The remarkable editing work of Guillaume Juin.
This short film by French director Loïc Bramoullé displays the coolest spacesuit I've ever seen. Not just because its mean range of weapons, but also for its (artificial) intelligence to make decisions that protect its owner—a cute cat that seems a bit out of place—from things like evil alien bees.
We're tired of seeing people sending crap to space in weather balloons, but this Walter White bobblehead is fun enough to get a pass.
