Don't start chatting her up--she won't respond. Not because she's busy hurrying to save the lives of the crew of a doomed space mission, but because she's made out of silicone.
All Steve Scott's Behance profile says is, this is a "project of mine to see how closely I could imitate life." Scott is an artist and illustrator, but also a portrait sculptor, a model/prop maker, creature FX creator and mould maker. The silicone used to make Sigourney come to life is cast into a mould made from an original clay sculpture. Read More

Canadian astronaut Commander Chris Hadfield has blown my mind with his cover of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” done in space! As his 5-month tour aboard the International Space Station did not compromise his mustache, it sure gave him the proper perspective to cover this epic tale of isolation.
I’ll give it to the Commander, his version is far less full of despair than our favorite alien, and has been flying around Internet space further proving that being an astronaut is the coolest job ever.

You thought your voting experience was painful? Check it: Galicia Malone, a 21-year-old from Dolton, Illinois, went into labor and somehow managed to vote before heading to the hospital. Her water had already broken by the time she reached her local polling station, according to Cook County Clerk David Orr.
“I wanted this to be a stepping-stone for my daughter,” Galicia, a first-time voter, said.
Galicia, we salute you! That kind of dedication is what makes democracy go ‘round.

Lady GaGa's antics have got everybody taking it to the next level, including her recent partner in crime Beyoncé. Hot on the heels of her fierce collabs with GaGa, B is again staking her claim as 'hottest chick in the game' by stage-diving into a crowd at her London show during a performance of 'Halo.' The video quality is a little bit terrible -- but hey, it's an illegally filmed cell phone video from an arena show. It still gets the point across. Read More

Debate is raging in the BUST office about whether or not Lady Gaga is awesome. We all agree that her look is crazy amazing, but her music leaves some of us saying 'eh,' and at least one saying that 'Paparazzi' sounds a little too much like the Berlin slow jam 'Take My Breath Away.'
I, however, am not one of these naysayers. I love all things Gaga, especially since the premiere of her epic 'Bad Romance' vid -- I have literally not watched anything else all week. PETA be damned, I'd wear that polar bear cape thing in a minute. Or those 10-inch lobster claw Alexander McQueen heels. Read More
