Cows, it turns out, can be pretty filthy, just pooping wherever and whenever it strikes their fancy. And when they let loose in the confines of a milking stall, the splattered mess becomes a source of infection for every cow that enters after. But rather than force a human to shovel shit nine times a day, Lely has introduced a robotic platform to do it for us.

Good news, everyone! We may have detected our first exomoon outside a solar system. It orbits a gas giant 1800 light years away from us, and it's half the size of Earth — just like the famous Yavin IV from which the Rebel Alliance launched its attack against the Death Star. It's a really weird moon too.
Shows like Million Dollar Listings are fun and all — but, like, who can relate? The new Discovery Health show Urban Suburban might represent a more realistic real estate conundrum for most people: a real-life version of the Town Mouse and the Country Mouse, where homebuyers have to decide between settling down in suburbia or the big city.
NASA successfully transported the space shuttle Discovery from Florida to Virginia yesterday on its way to the Smithsonian. But how do you get a 68,000kg space vehicle off a 70m aeroplane without dropping it?
Since you'll probably never be an astronaut, and since the Space Shuttle program is ending, you're probably never going to see the innards of the massive machine in real life. It's OK though, this amazing 360-degree panorama lets you see every seat, switch, button, knob and thing that blasts people into space.
The Space Shuttle Discovery will make its final airborne journey tomorrow. The storied spacecraft will be ferried on the back of a Boeing 747 from Kennedy Space Center in Florida to Dulles International Airport outside Washington DC. The plane's final destination is the nearby Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center of the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum. Holy sadness.
