      The cartoon strip xkcd.com has some good funny space facts sometimes.
      This one is thought provocking too: http://xkcd.com/811/

      That despite what they might tell you, NASA have done research into… human… reproduction in zero-gravity.

      Using dolphins.

      I think it’s quite funny that without gravity in space, astronauts can’t cry properly, because there’s nothing to make their tears run down their face. The tears would just float out of their eyes horizontally like in some cartoons! Is that cruel?

      That when you are ready to go observing, it starts to get cloudy, and then when you get fed up of waiting and decide to go and make a cup of tea, the clouds disappear?
