free space shuttle engines

20 Jan

Yeah, NASA is giving them away.  For real.  All you have to do is figure out a way to transport it.  You can also be the proud owner of an actual space shuttle, but that’ll set you back $28.8 million.

Also, a study published in Nature Physics speculates that Neptune and Uranus could have oceans of liquid diamond.  Apparently this would explain some of the abnormalities in Neptune’s magnetic field and why it’s composition is 10 percent carbon.  It seems kind of fitting for a planet named after the god of the sea.
