A pastor wearing a colander on his head offered the opening prayer on behalf of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster to open a local government meeting in Alaska, the latest blessing from a nontraditional church since a court ruling.
May his noodly appendage bless you.

What do you get when you combine science-inspired wonder and seven miles of desert? An incredible video.
Filmmakers Wylie Overstreet and Alex Gorosh, along with a few helpful friends, set out to make a scale model of the solar system. To do that, they traveled 600 miles to Black Rock Desert (home of the Burning Man Festival) in Nevada. Using various technology, vehicles, a drone, math and perseverance, they created "To Scale: The Solar System," a seven-minute video that shows the orbits of the eight planets in our solar system.

It is common to hear chefs wax lyrical about ingredients they adore. We hear far less about those that are a pain to prep, a nightmare to cook with or difficult to arrange on the plate.

Just last week, more than 130 scientists met in Rome to hash out more details about an informal collaboration between NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) called AIDA, short for "asteroid impact and deflection assessment." AIDA refers to a pair of missions designed to slam a spacecraft into a near-Earth asteroid and then study the impact to see how feasible it might be for humans to push an asteroid off its trajectory, should we ever need to.

We all love dolphins, but most of us didn’t know that they can be even cuter than we know them- when colored pink! And the good news is that a rare pink dolphin mom, called Pinky, has given birth to a pink calf of her own!

While they are cuddly cute in appearance, they're actually very defensive and nasty. No matter, we probably are better off with diversity of life.
Please stop destroying their habitat.

The U.S. Navy has confirmed that three online videos purportedly showing UFOs are genuine. The service says the videos, taken by Navy pilots, show “unexplained aerial phenomena,” but also states that the clips should have never been released to the public in the first place. The three videos in question are titled "FLIR1," "Gimbal," and "GoFast." They show two separate encounters between Navy aircraft and UFOs.
