He may be known as a popular rapper but B.o.B, a.k.a. Bobby Ray Simmons Jr., is making news these days for something other than his number one hits. B.o.B has launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise money for weather balloons and satellites to send into space. The purpose? To prove the Earth is flat, once and for all.

The rapper has become well known in recent years for his unconventional views on things. He is a proud member of the Flat Earth Society, which supports the idea that the Earth is not round. His Twitter followers get a regular dose of his thoughts on the matter, as well as his support of theories like 9/11 conspiracies and the dangers of vaccines. He has also posted mysterious tweets like this one, which implied that celebrities might be clones since they “can’t gain weight, and they can’t grow hair.”

NASA Measures Human Impact on Space Fungi

Whether we intend to or not, humans leave an impact on the areas we inhabit. This is even true in space, where the mere existence of astronauts can change the biological makeup of a planet. As NASA continues in its plans to send manned spacecraft to Mars, the agency is researching how human presence can impact outer space.

To conduct their research, the agency is recreating the environment seen on the International Space Station, which humans have occupied since 1998. For its most recent study, they looked at the affect only a few people living in an inflatable space would have. Even with four occupants, the species of fungi present in the habitat changed.

Since Pluto was downgraded to a dwarf planet, the world of space has been constantly abuzz over the possibility of a ninth planet in our Solar System. While trying to disprove the existence of a ninth planet in 2016, scientists actually realized they might have discovered one quite a distance from Pluto. There have been other instances of possible ninth-planet sightings, although none have been confirmed to date.

The most recent possibility exists in the Kuiper belt, a ring-shaped accumulation of matter within our Solar System. Researchers at the University of Arizona have spotted mysterious movement within the belt that they believe could point to a previously-undiscovered planet.
