Please don’t judge me too harshly for the title of this post. I do enjoy a solid pun here and there, and when the opportunity presents itself, you can bet your sweetcheeks I’m gonna run with it. There aren’t that many space puns available for daily use, if you know what I mean, so the pun title is here to stay.
