NASA Astronaut Scott Kelly Posts 'Space Vagina' On Social Media

A NASA astronaut is keeping us topped up with LOLs from outer space – via his social media accounts.

Scott Kelly, who is about a quarter of the way into his year-long stay on the International Space Station posted this rather suggestive image to Twitter and Instagram on Monday, captioning it: #MondayMotivation Color your world.

Marty505 simply remarked: “The internet has ruined my mind is all I can say.”


Of the intriguing concept that Kelly is in fact beaming us images of space porn, Daily Dot points out: “While the possibility of space nudes are exciting, it’s probably a pink sand beach. Or maybe it’s a nude! But probably not.”

And it cites other examples of “Earth porn”, specifically one which got one Reddit user banned from an environmental photography subreddit:

Which in turn, reminds us of this unfortunate incident which saw an American exchange student become trapped in a marble vagina in Germany.
