Tumblr Thread: Fastest Manmade Object Went Full Send

Tumblr did some research on the fastest manmade object. By the sound of it this manhole cover was launched into space with such monstrous force that it could've punched a hole through a planet. Maybe the aliens will touch base some day in the future, and ask us why we went and did something like that.

Tumblr Thread: What Exactly Han Solo Was Smuggling

With a lot of additions to the Star Wars universe, and the directive that Star Wars should be okay for kids, there was some internal confusion over what "spice" is or does. That is of course until a certain writer had a hilariously direct conversation with George Lucas. People have made some other very humorous and poignant observations on Star Wars, like how Darth Vader is so extra, or this Star Wars fan calling out people's complaints. And for good measure here's a twitter thread on how different Star Wars characters take their coffee.

AskReddit Thread: Scariest Space Facts And Mysteries

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the scariest space facts and mysteries that people know about. It's easy to forget that we're on a giant rock flying and falling and spinning madly on through space. I mean, we forget to look up at the sky enough as it is. Maybe a convenient forgetfulness.

Former Flat-Earthers Moments Of Enlightenment

Someone on AskReddit got a fun thread going about the moments that former flat-earthers realized that the earth is indeed not flat. We love a good roundtable discussion involving newly enlightened flat-earthers. A strange bunch, but at least we get moments like this as a result.

Tumblr Pulls Some Choice Apollo 11 Quotes

While everyone involved in the moon landing knew the impact of what they were doing, you couldn't expect them to be all business all the time. When you think about it, a trip to the moon is a lot like a long car ride with your bro. Tumblr remarks on some of the less on-brand quotes from the Apollo 11 mission. For some other interesting junk, here's a tumblr thread on the fastest manhole cover ever, the first soldier to take way too many military grade amphetamines as well as some other nuggets of gold from Tumblr's busy brains.

It's fun to see a military commander detail his experiences with unidentified phenomenon, while flying those skies. Seems like he actually might've seen some strange stuff up there. You be the judge.

Tumblr Explores Human Nature with "Knife Roomba"

One of Tumblr's favorite things to do is expound on human nature in discussions, essays and threads about the role human beings as team "hold my beer" in the universe. It's generally regarded, out of self interest and flattery that we're basically badass space orcs. These kinds of discussions go on to describe Earth as the type of planet whose wildlife could fight off an alien invasion. So in this context, the idea that a human ship would have a knife Roomba affectionately referred to as "Stabby" not only makes perfect sense, but sort of makes us want to get one right now.

While Larry is talking to astronauts using a ham radio, I still struggle to get my bluetooth headphones to work properly. Way to go, Larry. Apparently he was able to make contact with an astronaut named Serena Aunon, who was on board the International Space Station. Way cool.

That's not a green screen. James Burke had to do this take with perfect timing, and the crew had to get everything right on the money. The result is pretty badass.

Tumblr Uncovers the Legend of The Fastest Manhole Cover Ever

This story is about a particular event that took place during the nuclear testing of Operation Plumbbob. Officially, the steel plate that popped off was never seen from again, but the calculations point to there being enough energy in that metal cap to escape the earth's atmosphere, and it's been an urban legend/mystery ever since. Tumblr finds some interesting and fun history stuff, like the first soldier to take way too many military grade amphetamines.
