The Earth as seen by Chandrayaan-1

On 29 Oct 2008, the Indian lunar satellite Chandrayaan-1 snapped its first pictures. The rocket scientists (aha!) definitely wasted no time after launch and beamed the camera Earthwards to snap up a beautiful picture of mother Earth. It would have been great to see India as the first image taken from the satellite, but Australia will work perfectly as well. The stunning image has great detail and can only be a precursor to much more to come. Awesome!

The True Maverick

You gotta give it to this guy. Just 3 days before the elections, he's out there poking fun at himself and his campaign. And of course, SNL rocks!
