It’s dark. It’s vast. It’s scary. It’s space. But, it can be fun, too. This week we look at a fun Pluto rap, a cute galactic robot, cosmic social media and more. Today we also remember Mother Teresa, who would have been 103. Enjoy your week.

Is Pluto a Planet? That’s a Rap
We love it when kids get space jiggy with it. Caroline Carson (@Conductor222), what do you think: is Pluto a planet or not?

Here’s the Robot That Will Keep You From Going Insane in Space
Space is no longer lonely. Liz Hardwick (@Tech_Geek_Girl), Kiribo’s cute isn’t he? We just hope he’s as interesting.

The 8 First Social Media Posts from Space
Even the Curiosity Rover tweets. Bettina Johnson (@bettina_johnson), thanks for your post. We wonder what Curiosity’s go-to hashtag is.

Space Facts that Will Knock Your Socks Off [VID]
An estimated 1,000-10,000 tons of meteor debris hits the earth every day. We’re happy to hear it’s mostly dust-size. Thanks for knocking our socks off, Hunter Barrow (@HunterBarrow).

Video of the week
Astronaut Chris Hadfield’s “Space Oddity,” from the International Space Station.
