Celebrate The Mars Landing With A Dumb Natalie Portman "Heavenly Body" Joke

We interrupt our Summer Olympics "hoorah" fervor to bring you some good old fashioned space nerdery. In case your head has been in a hole, allow me to report that NASA successfully landed the space craft Curiosity on Mars yesterday. Yeah, Science B*tch!! You know what's kind of rad? Dave Chapelle totally saw this coming. Anyway, my favorite part of this whole endeavor is watching the NASA nerds who made all of this possible celebrate the landing. If you haven't seen it yet, and can watch video at work, skip ahead to 2:30 for the Full Nerd Flail. (YouTube)

Alright, back to the Olympics. Check out this nifty little NYT feature where you can see every 100 Meter Dash medalist in history virtually compete against each other. YEAH SCIENCE, B*TCH. (NYT)

I cannot begin to count how many of you sent me the link to this model Serenity made of legos. Yes, okay, you get me. You people really get me. Check out the model, folks. It's 7 ft long. (io9)

Have you all seen the Xiying Rainbow Bridge in Taiwan? It's glorious at night. (Colossal)

In a Think Piece written *right* after author Maeve Binchy's death, a Telegraph writer implies the RECENTLY DECEASED woman would have been a better author if she had been a mother. Allow me to imply that this reporter can kiss my *ss. (Telegraph)

Speaking of lady journos, check out this brutally honest piece from a former Post reporter and inspiration for the Evil Hope Davis character on Aaron Sorkin's "The Newsroom" is a fascinating read. I felt dirty and cleansed at the same time. (XO Jane) And, if you're a Sorkin apologist like me, you might enjoy this rare instance of humility and self-awareness from the man. (WG)

For you "Breaking Bad" fans, our friend Josh Kurp has assembled a soundtrack of all the songs played during the show's lengthy "cook" scenes. It's an eclectic jam. Get your meth on. (Uproxx)

Check out this fantastic collection of the best Tumblr pics from 1991. It was a Bieber-free world, y'all. (HyperVocal)

Natalie Portman shot a new ad campaign for Dior and though I'm sure they dipped her in a vat of Photoshop, she looks gorgeous. (Celebitchy)

One of my all-time favorite comics, Tig Notaro, is having a CRAP year. If you're a fan, or curious to see someone handle some truly sh*tty life events with aplomb, check out this account of her recent set. (Flame Like Me)

And, tissues ready, Buzzfeed took their already gut-wrenchy list of Emotional Photos, set it to music and gave it a contemplative voice-over. Damnit. Where did all this dust come from?
