ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
I CAN HAS SPACESHIP / DIS SPACESHIP IT HAS A FLAVR
(the second one is funnier if you watch the video)
Now the shuttle can do whatever a spider can; space elevators coming right up…
Thanks Nasa and the anonymous spider for reenacting a famous scene from Tintin’s “the Shooting Star”!
Could be wrong, but it looks like a jumping spider. They always end up in the most curious and humorous places.
I’m reminded of Tintin in The Shooting Star thinking there was a giant spider traveling through space on the meteor, while it was merely a tiny spider crawling across the lens of the giant telescope.
That is a jumping spider, clearly the Audacious Jumping Spider, Phidippus Audax, I used to keep those in a terrarium when I was young…
I for one welcome our new arachnid overlords.
WE WILL FIGHT
AND WE WILL WIN!

This finally PROVES that the entire Space Program has been an elaborately staged government psy-op…
I look forward to toiling in their underground sugar caves.
mmmmm . . . sugar!
…Well, just goes to show you that despite all the refurbs and upgrades, NASA still hasn’t gotten all the bugs out of the Shuttle program.
NOM NOM NOM
It reminds me of that time in 2005 that a giant fly attacked Mount St. Helens!
Spiders from Mars! Where’s Ziggy Stardust when you need him?!
joking aside, thats a frickin’ big spider!
The flies erupting from Mt. Saint Helens are growing bigger by the year. Spin your web, shuttle spider, for all it’s worth.

*Enter Simpson’s Joke Here*
I knew one day the alien space spider species would attack our methods of space junk spreading.
