100 Creative Cosmic Concoctions

From Alien Art to Cameras That Capture the Planets

— May 1, 2012 — Tech
There is no shortage of creative cosmic concoctions available for those that want to know more about the mysteries of the universe that have puzzled and intrigued humans for eons.

Spaceships, aliens and a lack of gravity are exciting things to think about, and often are the theme of popular science fiction films and novels that cause Earthlings to question what lies outside of their atmosphere. From Star Wars to 2001: A Space Odyssey, Hollywood has honed in on, and profited from, the appeal of galaxies far, far away; advertisers and product developers are hot on their heels.

With increased advancements in technology, and an unwaveringly insatiable curiosity for all things unknown, being in the know about the cosmos is becoming more accessible -- even for those who aren't NASA astronauts.
