Lots of Updates: This Last Week in September Edition

Okay, NASA announced several new prospective launch vehicles this week; one of these vehicles (the SLS) looks like a dope-ass Saturn V rocket with boosters.

In addition, they discovered a planet with two suns which happens not to have occurred in Star Wars movies or in Old Spice ads. DOUBLE SUN POWER!!!!!! All in all, it's been a pretty cool week on the space front. 

I have been pretty busy in real life so I haven't had much time to cover these events; however, they did end up at my Tumblr blog. If you'd like to read about these stories in further detail, check out the archives section at "As Only NASA Can."
